Shintogo Kunimitsu was a Japanese swordmaker, active during the Einin, Showa and Enkyo-eras, generally acknowledged to be the teacher of master swordmaker Masamune. This is due to various similarities in style and workmanship, which indicate that Masamune was almost certainly his student. He had several sons, who likely crafted a number of swords under his name.
