WWII Japanese Swordsmiths Ranking


The material on this page was researched, translated and programmed by Dr. Jinsoo Kim


In 1942, Kurihara Hikosaburo, the man who revived the Japanese Sword twice, reported about 400 gunto tosho's ranking at Tosho Banzuke (“ ”Ô•). He classified as 7 ranks and included lots of wartime swordsmiths. In additon, winners of the 6th Shinsaku Nihonto Denrankai (Vì“ú–{““WæT˜ð, 1941) were reported at Nihon Kendo Oyobi Token (“ú–{™˜“¹‹y“™˜) by Hagio Takahashi. From Special Honor Seats to the 5th seat (S: “Á•Ê–¼æ£È(’b“ã` ), 1: š H, 2: €š H, 3:—DG, 4:‰Àì, 5: Vi), about 250 smiths were given. Both references enable us to investigate their standing and very valueable information in Gendaito research.
