TAMETSUGU(為継) was a Japanese swordsmith in Ecchu and Mino province.
- Nanbokucho period.
- Go Yoshihiro(郷義弘)
- Tametsugu is considered to have been a son of Go Yoshihiro(郷義弘) who was a student of Masamune(正宗). After his father died at the age of 27, he apprenticed to Norishige(則重), who was also a student of Masamune. This is a reason why his swords have some characteristics of the SOSHU Tradition(相州伝). Actually, some of his unsigned swords are attributed to Masamune.
- He was working in Echizen at first but moved to Mino at some point during 1369-1376.
