Team Review
Sue-Bizen school, Bizen province (Osafune), end of Muromachi, Sengoku Jidai

Bizen, Features : An essential feature from these Bizen forges comes from a local component, the steel called “Tetsu Bizen” (the steel from bizen), which was very pure and high quality. The sand was also very abundant bein nearby the sea. also the Asahigawa and the Yoshigawa rivers, with a very pure water, fed the forges. Furthermore the very woody surrounding forests supplied the ovens with coal. All these factors and the geographical situation, on the “Sanyodo” road, made this location the Mecca of the forge with such ideal conditions.

The "Bizen Den" tradition, which began during the Heian era, is the most renowned of the 5 japanese smithing traditions, having the greater number of famous swordsmiths. The name coming to mind is Tomonari who inspired Masamune.
