History
  • Kimura Shigekore, a vassal of the Toyotomi family, once bought the tantou from the very rich merchant Hirano Dousetsu (or Michiyuki) and presented it later to Hideyoshi. Then it later went to Maeda Toshinaga, who later gave it to Tokugawa Hidetada. After that it returned to Maeda family when Maeda Toshitsune married Hidetada's daughter Tamahime.
  • At the end of the Edo period, Maeda donated this sword to the imperial family and has been an Imperial Treasure ever since, alongside Ichigo Hitofuri, Tsurumaru Kuninaga and Uguisumaru.
Miscellaneous
  • It's safe to assume that the reason he resembled Maeda Toushirou so much is due to the fact that they used to belong to the same family.
