Hey all,

 

I have another wakizashi of mine here with an unknown mei that features 8 kanji as part of the signature/date, I'd love to know what it says. I appreciate any and all input on what it means as well as any information you can give me about it! I am nearly positive this blade was o-suriage as indicated by the two mekugi-ana. Its definitely thick enough to have been a katana, so I'll also be looking for a suitable tsuka or shirasaya to put this one in, as all it has is just the saya but no tsuka.

 

Thanks again!

 

~Chris

Ah, so.. what would the complete translation be? Is it just a very long signature, or is there a date in there too?
