A tanto (dagger) crafted by Masamune, a swordsmith whose name is synonymous with Japanese swords. For a long time Masamune swords were often gifted as swords of exceptional quality. When he uses the phrase "it was close," it is not meant as resignation but acknowledgement and gratitude that there will be another opportunity. Having lived in Kishu, he is good at making umeboshi (pickled plums).
In this game, he is assigned to the Second Team.
