A sword by Fujita Akiyoshi 藤田昭義
A Gendaitō piece I picked up the end of 2020.
It is signed katana-mei with the omote side reading:
U Shū Yamagata Jū
Fujita Akiyoshi Saku Kore
On the ura side along with the date there is the following inscription and date.
應山岸政天氏需 (應 is old form of応)
Ō Yamagishi Masao-shi Ju.
This is written in Kanbun or classical Chinese and the first character is read last, so it is read Yamagishi Masaoshi (no) ju (ni) Ōjite.
(Following the request/instructions of Mr. Masao Yamagishi).
Shōwa Jū Kyū Nen Ni Getsu Hi (A day in February 1944).
From Sesko pg. 28: Akiyoshi (昭義), 1st gen., Shōwa (昭和 1926-1989), Yamagata. Real name Fujita Tokusaburō (藤田徳三郎), born 1904, he signed in his early years with Yoshikane (吉包) and studied under Kurihara Akihide (栗原明秀), jōko no jōi.
