Created by shodai Kawachi no kami Kunisuke, Kunisuke School was productive in the city of Osaka.
Kunisuke Nidai, also known as « Naka ​​Kawachi », son of Shodai, was certainly the most outstanding and the most skilled blacksmith of this school. His work is tinged with the influence of his father, but his jigane in ko itame very tight is of higher quality. He is also known to be particularly proficient in his work as a ko nie shimari ashi iri choji ha, which earned him the nickname « Shinto Ichimonji ».
His hamon showing chôji with ashi have a blooming appearance and a very clear nioiguchi.

Translation of horimono:
The Bonji (first character) means « Amida Nyorai », a very popular Buddha considered Buddha of the Buddhas. He reigns over the « Pure Land » or the equivalent of Nirvana according to certain conceptions.
The rest of the horimono are kanji and the translation is « Hachiman daibosatsu », who is the Shinto god of war and the divine protector of Japan and the Japanese people.
