I have recently come into a Katana I looked at the blade amrkings but I have had no luck working them out. I would appreciate any one who could tell me what it means. Thanks.

Welcome on board of the NMB!

The maker seems to read MASAHIRO, but the rest is not easy to read for me, Without more and better photos I think it is a machine made WW II SEKI blade.

Please sign all posts at least with your first name plus an initial as is requested here.

Hi Mike.

 

Have a look at this, https://www.aoijapan...015/15198-1.jpg In kaigunto mounts, look for a small stamped mark somewhere on the tang.  Jean is right in his comments about a WWII Seki blade.

 

Also have a look at this thread, http://www.militaria...opinion-please/

 

All the best and welcome aboard.


Geraint

I have to travel by car today (40 miles). I'll have to watch for branches and trees on the road...
