The Mihara school started with the founder and first generation Mihara Masaie during the Kamakura era. The swords made between Kamakura era and Nanbokucho era are usually referred to Ko-Mihara (Old Mihara) and the ones early Muromachi era are referred to as from Chu-Mihara (Middle-Mihara) and the late Muromachi era to the Bakumatsu era are referred to Sue-Mihara (Late Mihara).
