Hello! I would like some assistance translating the tang of a family heirloom katana. It was supposedly taken during WWII by my grandfather and has been in the family since. I attempted an amateur translation based off of some common kanji smith names and province names: 濃州住人゛河合兼義鍛之 - Nōshū-jū (hito?) Kawai Kaneyoshi kitau kore - This was forged by Kawai Kaneyoshi of Nōshū. I would like to know if this is in any way correct; thank you ahead of time for any help!
I have attached four pictures of the tang. All of the pictures I took are here: https://imgur.com/a/5yZ6h the attached images are simply the best ones.
