Furukawa Yoshimune (real name Eiichi) was one of the 232 registered swordsmiths from the Seki region. These swordsmiths produced swords for the military from at least the 30's until the end of the war. This is about all I know. A cursory search for this smith doesn't result in much, even in Japanese. There are a couple of his swords bouncing around on the auction sites.
