Thank you gents!

I was reaching for the sunagashi but had a total short circuit.. :)

Nakago is mumei and also quite rusted so it need a plenty of tlc.. but hoping to see how it turns out, will post more photos as it progresses. And Jussi, will definately bring it to our meeting when done.

And second one. First one looks like to having a mei but it was some markings if I remember correctly, not chiseled.
