GASSAN SADATOSHI (real name is Gassan Kiyoshi) was born in Osaka in 1946 as a son of Gassan Sadaichi who was the Living@National Treasure. He started to learn making swords from his father in 1969 after graduating from university. He has received many awards in some competitions so far, and became a one of representative swordsmiths. He inherited the Ayasugi (resembles a row of cedar trees) forging and blade engraving of Gassan tradition as the 5th generation of the Osaka Gassan family, and is very active in Japan and abroad receiving offers from shrines, temples, the Metropolitan Museum and Yokozuna (the grand champion of sumo) etc. He has also produced many pupils including his successor, Gassan Sadanobu, and is focusing on training of them. In 2019 he offered a blade to the Imperial Household Agency for the court ceremony.
