Perhaps the best place to start is with some of the main characteristics of the knives of Rai Kuninaga’s teacher, Rai Kunitoshi, and the traditional Rai school in general. The Rai school, along with the Awtaguchi school, is representative of Yamashiro knives and was active from the last mid-Kamakura period to the Nanbokuchô period. Traditionally, Rai Kuniyuki (来国行) is considered the founder of the Rai school. He was followed by his son, Rai Kunitoshi (来国俊) who has many fine examples of his work that survive today. Rai Kunitoshi (来国俊) is considered one of the most important swordsmiths of all time and he trained many fine students, including Rai Kunimitsu (来国光), Rai Kunitsugu (来国次) and Rai Kuninaga (来国長). Written records and extant swords support the fact that Rai Kunitoshi had many good students, and during his life in the capital Kyoto, he was famous. It is believed that Rai Kunitoshi’s top students created works under Rai Kunitoshi’s name (daisaku/daimei), including Kunitsugu (来国次) and his younger brother Kuninaga (来国長).
