    Default Just received a shinsakuto from Japan...

    ...Katana, 74cm blade. Smith is Seki-Ju Kanetoki, made Autumn Showa 52 (1977). Hamon is gunome-midare, bosho looks like Jizo style to me, grain appears very fine. Does anyone else know anything about this smith or his work? Thanks in advance.
