Sukekane was the adopted son of Yokoyama Sukemori. He had also been known as Yokoyama Toshiyuki, A tradtion of stating lineage from Ko Bizen Tomonari had begun with Yokoyama Sukenaga and this continued for several generations. Sukekane added "Tomonari go ju hachi dai mago" ( 58th generation decendant of Tomonari ) to the mei of his works. The nakago of this katana includes this in the ura mei as well as the date that it was made, 1866.
Sukekane is a well regarded smith as is really seen at a higher level that some older rankings may indicate. His work is typically valued as much or more than Jo Saku shinshinto. In addition to the high quality of his work, another factor adding to his reputation is that his student, Minamoto Kanenori was nominated as Teishitsu Gigei In (Imperial Household Artisan). Kanenori received this honor in 1906 along with Gassan Sadakazu.
