This book is from an appraiser's manuscript of about 1550. An Oshigata of 80 smiths. Additional references. The inclusion of so many great names indicates that the appraiser was prominent in his field, and would have been consulted as to the validity of important swords. He may possibly have been a Honmi living between 1550 and 1600.
