Baba Tsugukiyo

Baba Tsugukiyo was a well known smith working during the war. He was a Rikugun Jumei Tosho smith and made quality gendaito during that time period. Like other examples of his work I have studied, this one has a great gonome-midare hamon and fine ko-itame jihada. In shin-gunto koshirae with some wear and scratches to the saya.
