KANEYOSHI KO-O 1389 (t: KANETOMO-DEN, f: YAMATO TEGAI KANEYOSHI): 
ZENJO Founder. SEIJIRO. HOMYO ZENJO. Also: ZENRYO. Originally
from YAMATO. TEGAI KANEYOSHI (KANE form: HO "wrap") is the same
man. He is seen as beginning in KO-RYAKU 1379 from whence he
moved from YAMATO TEGAI to MINO, one reference claims he is the
son NAOE SHIZU KANETOMO's daughter. KANEYOSHI brings YAMATO style.
He has a long career, spanning through the OEI. He dies in the
first year of EI-KYO 1429, at 83 years of age.
Made SAKIZORI TACHI SUGATA.
KO-ITAME HADA runs with MASAME and clear, thin veil of JINIE.

KANEYOSHI(2) OEI 1394 KANENOBU - ZENJO Group. Work into the EI-KYO.
SAEMONJIRO. An argument ensues: It has been speculated that ZENJO
SAEMONJIRO KANENOBU could be NAOE SAEMONJIRO KANENOBU or then more
probably, his son. ZENJO records say KANEYOSHI(2) was the eldest
son, named after NAOE KANENOBU and that KANEYOSHI(2) first signed
KANENOBU, then converted his MEI to KANEYOSHI later. If ZENJO
KANEYOSHI(2) is ZENJO KANENOBU(1), it follows that KANENOBU(2) of
EI-KYO would be his son, as some EI-KYO KANENOBU records state.
Since KANEYOSHI(2) was KANENOBU, EI-KYO KANENOBU could well be the
son. As KANEYOSHI(2) was KANENOBU, records of the KANENOBU line
then become clear.
KANEYOSHI(2): He follows the grand style-structure laid forth by
KANEYOSHI(1). If this smith started from NAOE roots, it marks a
stark change.
NIOI-GUCHI is tight and small TOGARI push from a fairly even field

We have a recording of a MEI: SEKI IWAMI-no-KAMI KANEFUSA,
TAI-EI SHICHI NEN which places his title at or before 1527.
It seems his health forced his younger brother, KYOSABURO,
(WAKASA-no-KAMI) to come adopt him and bring him back to MINO to
rejoin the legitimate family line of the SORYO SHIKI. Taking his
place, he then becomes HOMYO ZEN-O. His swords are WAZAMONO rated.
