In past years I have seen an example of a gunto blade with the kikusui mon on the blade...just in front of the habaki...I have also seen the kikusui in the hamon (so you were not dreaming Henk-Jan)...I can't remember now if these were the same blade or two blades...they/it was definitely not Minatogawa and I remember them/it as "not gendaito"...probably showato.
The kikusui usage was more widespread than most imagine.
