I have a few swords my Grandpa got in 1940's when he was serving in World War 2, he told me he was allowed to take them from the ship he was on and the rest were pushed in to the sea before they returned. These two swords have writing on them that I have frequently wondered what they say. One I strongly believe is the name of a solider who owned it. The other, I have no idea it's written on the handle. I will post them both, thanks in advance for translating these. I have one other but it was a hand made sword, lucky pick from the pile the local museum said it was around 170 years old by the name of the sword smith, I forget who it was but next time I have the guts to take the handle appart I'll post it as well. I think I can post a picture of the sword I took a while ago, now it sits in a safety deposit box/cabinet and I only get it out once a year to put choji oil on it.
The long katana is the one I was told was hand crafted, has some kind of lizard skin on the scabbard I think they said it was Iguana in the handle and komodo dragon on the scabbard. I don't remember to tell the truth, but it's not leather, nor plastic it's some kind of thin animal hide, its not glued to the body of the scabbard so it can move a little with finger touch. Anyway, I'd love to know more about these swords, the close of of the one with the red scabbard and gold lettering I was thinking of sending to have restored, but not sure if I should or who I can trust with it. These mean a lot to me, my Grandpa is gone now and he gave these to me when I was a child.
