It is with great sadness that we annouce the passing of the last current Living National Treasure Swordsmith: Amata Akitsugu sensei (Real Name Seiichi). He was 85 years old
He began as an uchi-deshi with Kurihara (Hikosaburo) Akihide at the Nipponto Denshujo. He was elevated to Living National Treasure in 1997.
