Nagatsuna was one of the top students of Tadatsuna, the founder of the Osaka Shinto Tadatsuna school.
Nagastuna swords are rated as wazamon (extremely sharp), and a Jo-saku level shinto smith.

“This sword reminds me Koto Yamashiro, with abundant activity in the choji hamon with abundant sunagashi. The deep lustrous hada looks like a swirling wet pool of black blue water. There is abundant ji-nie, chikei and areas of muneyaki. I feel that the attribution to Nagatsuna is conservative.”
