Mario.

the blade was made 1941 (SHOWA JU ROKU NEN). It has a SEKI arsenal stamp which means that it is very probably not traditionally made. I am not of great help with the MEI (signature). The first KANJI is KANE, but I cannot read the second.

Genuine Type98 Sword. Nice fittings and good condition. Seki stamp, not traditionell forged but it has a nice Hamon. All looks good with your sword.
