Chris,

date is ANSEI SHICHI NEN (1861) January (?), I believe, but there are two more KANJI.

Chris,

KOMATSU (= small pine-tree) is probably the familiy name in this case.

Yes, hard to read, Ansei shichi nen, kinoe sho gatsu hi (or jitsu or nichi)....Kinoe is a calendar sign.,, anyway it is sho-gatsu, so January 1861.

If it is "Ansei 7" ("安政 七"), shouldn't it be 1860 and the matching Zodiac date "Kanoe Saru" ("庚申")?

Uwe,

I thought it would be 1854 plus 7, but probably you are right.

I have some problemes to find out the smith. In Hawley are listed 3 in that period with muneshige, but none Komatsu. There is Komatsu City in Ishikawa province. But there is no Muneshige.

Any idea who this smith is?

 

Thats the blade

Jean,

actually 1854 = first year Ansei, so you have to add only 6 years ;-)
