Hello,

 

Please help me with the translation on the Fuchi of my Katana by Masanaga (see the other topic I opened in the Nihonto section)!

 

Regards,

Looks like he is in Haynes as H 02910.0, Family name; Kawakami, aka: Seiryuken (as mentioned), Tatsukichi, Tatsunosuke. Worked in Mito in Hitachi Province, and later in Tokyo. Born in 1832, still alive in 1912. So worked in late Edo-Meiji period. Student of the first Hagiya Katsuhira, in the Meiji period he moved to Tokyo. His son was Yoshitada, and student was Tadatoshi. Looks like he signed with two different 'toshi' characters, Haynes has him listed with one, both both are in Markus' book with a picture of the mei, that looks very close to this fuchi. Mike
