MOMOYAMA stylists


Early TOFUJI HEI-JI - SAIGUN. No direct scholarship for this name other than
mentioning a copy of the Beard-cutter sword is attributed. This in
MASAME HADA with HOSO-SUGUHA. Searching for TOFUJI ZAIMEI in Late
NAMBOKUCHO SUGATA and MUROMACHI has been difficult. Expect YAMATO
style for TOFUJI where KO-SENJUIN are assumed to be their roots.

TOFUJI EI-TOKU 1381: SAIGUN. This will be the late period of the NAMBOKUCHO.
Early MUROMACHI style. Coarse MASAME HADA that is dark MINO steel,
typical of the HOKURIKU YAMATO-DEN KAJI. Not expected to be fine quality.
NIE GUNOME-MIDARE with SUNAGASHI.
TOFUJI
TOFUJI SAKU

TOFUJI KYO-ROKU 1528: SAIGUN. AKASAKA SENJUIN style. Standing ITAME that runs
with MASAME. Dark MINO steel, with JI-NIE.
KO-NIE DEKI SUGUHA and KO-MIDARE BA. GUNOME-MIDARE BA with SUNAGASHI
and NIE in the HABUCHI. TOFUJI SAKU in thick strokes and pushed together.
TOFUJI SAKU

JUMYO(1) SHO-O 1288: SAIGUN. Supposedly a great-grandson of TOFUJI. SAEMON-no-JO.
ZAIMEI, signed pieces, in KAMAKURA SUGATA are not seen. There is an OSHIGATA
bearing the date, EI-NIN GONEN - 1297 but finding extant ZAIMEI has been
troublesome. Old records say JUMYO is a YAMATO line TOKO and YAMATO style
is expected. Regardless the record is scant if non-existent.
Note: JUMYO with long MEI of many characters are KAMAKURA JIDAI.
NOSHU ONO-GORI SAIGUN JUNIN JUMYO

MUNEYOSHI SHO-AN 1299 (f:SHO-O JUMYO): Expect YAMATO KAMAKURA Style.
MUNEYOSHI

signatures of: JUMYO MUNEYOSHI nd JUMYO MUNETSUGU and a general expansion
into the body of work from the JUMYO line. Often, more than one JUMYO are
working at the same time.
