It is said that Ieyasu’s grandfather Kiyoyasu and father Hirotada were killed with Muramasa’s sword, and his eldest son Nobuyasu was intervened with Muramasa’s sword when he was forced to commit seppuku, and Ieyasu himself was wounded by Muramasa’s spear, so it is said that it was by the Tokugawa family was disliked as an ominous sword.
