help with translation on sword tang

Recommended Posts

I have at long last worked up the courage to remove the handle from this sword.

As well as the fixing peg the handle was held in place by a brittle resin type of material which I removed with petrol.

Below I found what i assume to be Japanese writing on both sides and on the back edge.

Can anyone help with translations.

Gordon, I am a newbee to this forum, but have had a bit of experience with Japanese Swords.  The best place to gain translation of a tang on a Japanese Sword is to post it to the Assistance Section of this website http://www.militaria.co.za/nmb/..  These folks are reliable and it is free.

Hope this helps
