I just purchased a nice wakizashi, but can't find any information on the smith in any of my references. I was told the mei read Fujiwara Kunisada, but when the blade arrived, it was obviously a different smith:

Does anyone have information on Echizen no Daijo Minamoto Kunisada? I can return the wakizashi before the end of the year.

Mahalo! (Thanks!)

Ken

I guess it helps to be able to read Kanji, Paul. Thanks! Mele Kalikimaka!
