  • Japanese: 肥前 忠吉 (Hizen Tadayoshi)

Hizen Tadayoshi was the name taken in succession by a line of prominent Edo period swordsmiths.

Though formal samurai exchanges of swords as gifts typically took the form of older (pre-Edo) swords, when Edo period swords (shin-tô, lit. "new swords") were given, they were often blades made by Hizen Tadayoshi.
