Seems to be "Izumi no Kami Kanehisa". But I'm afraid, that doesn't mean much Marius!

Dear MArrius,

 

I am sure you know this but I suspect that Uwe is pointing out that this is a modern reproduction 'pocket filler', not a genuine kogatana.  Interesting way the mei is made.

 

All the best.

Thank you very much for the translation and explanations!

I noticed that the "kogatana" looks suspiciously new and that the hamaon and signature are etched. So I suspected it is a new item, but wasn't sure.

Thank you again for your assistance! :)
