Can someone please confirm "tsugu", this ones new to me, unusual shaped nakago and Maru-ish type mune.

 

Neatly chiselled mei, cant see a "tadatsugu" being a gimei, obscure smith maybe?

 

Wakizashi, not in full detail polish, but Hada and hamon visible, latter part of Edo period I guess.

John "Masayuki" Yumoto's little beginner's book has a handy section in the back pages that gives variants for some characters.  Well worth being conversant with.

 

Bestests,
