  • Iyo no Jo Minamoto Munetsugu (伊予掾源宗次), born into a family of Shinto priests serving at Tenmangu Shrine in Nagase Village, was originally named Sakai Sanemon (堺三右衛門). He served under the first lord of Saga Domain (Saga Han), Nabeshima Katsushige, and received the title of Iyo no Jo in 1606 (Keicho 11). Later, he was granted the title of Iyo Daijo.

    While employing the Yamashiro tradition in Hizen swords, Munetsugu's style stands out as a Hizen swordsmith who incorporates lively and intricate irregularities with a prominent nie (temper line), including kin-suji (golden lines) and sunagashi (sand-like streaks) characteristic of the Soshu tradition, particularly the Shizu style.
