Hello. This is my 1st post and my 1st purchase of a fine wakizashi with kogatana. The main reason for the purchase of this nihonto was the scabbard? which appears to be a bronze/copper inlay showing a running horse. The sword only arrived yesterday and I hope to show more images however when I opened the packing and looked at the kogatana it was signed. Please can anyone assist with the translation, I have began to search through various website of nihonto translation assistance, it is a very difficult learning curve?
I have attached the image showing the text, and thank everyone who views and can help/assist with a beginners journey.
Thank you. John
