History


Miscellaneous
  • A tachi crafted by Kanehira of the Kobizen school. Although Ookanehira and Doujigiri Yasutsuna are both known as "the Best of the West and East Japanese Swords", Doujigiri Yasutsuna is also a Tenka Goken which is why Ookanehira views him as a rival.
  • The historical legends and anecdotes about him are somewhat scarce, but a theory that he was noticed by Ikeda Terumasa is an important aspect of him.
  • He's observed by Uguisumaru, who was born in the same province as him.
