From first blush it looks like Chinese copy, Ito is wrapped wrong.

The photos do not show much of the blade. The tip and the tang (NAKAGO) without HABAKI are especially important for identification.

As Stephen wrote, parts and handle wrapping are giveaways for non-Japanese copies.

Welcome to the forum, Kyle. Please take a look at the other photos that are posted so you'll have an idea what we need to see to help identify your sword.
