Other Info
Omidaijo was the son of Tadayoshi, the first generation of his tradition. Omidaijo produced more blades ranked Juyo-Token than any other of his time. He was born 1614 and after his father passed away, he took over swordsmithing as the second generation in 1632 at the age of 19 as Tadahiro. He received the title of "Omi Daijo" 1641. In 1693, he passed away at the age of 80. He forged many outstanding swords before the year of his death and created a strong reputation of his Tradition. Considering the style of the Mei and the condition, this Wakizashi was likely forged when he was in his 50s. This blade is in a sound condition. It has passed the Tokubetsu Hozon Token in June 2020.
