Naokazu was a Shinshinto smith who worked in Musashi province circa Bunka period (1804). The work is beautifully done modeled on Soshu-den with a midare hamon with deep activity. I have tried to take photos here which reflect the wide habuchi and the activity within the hamon. The blade is in polish, with shirasaya and also has a nice antique Higo koshirae.
