Just looking for confirmation on this mei. I read it as Ishihara Kanenao. Which, if correct would make the blade a gunto/showato. This mei, I think, looks much more “crisp” than other examples (which I don’t know how to link.) The nagasa is 25.5”. The nakago measures 8.11” and is finished in sensuki. It also has a nice sori at 3/4” or so. However, I cannot find any kind of arsenal stamp.
Please excuse the rotated photos. It is absolutely maddening to me that I can’t figure out how to prevent this from happening. I’ve done a search on the board for help, but can never find anything, even though I’ve read other posts, numerous times about how to prevent that. I want my posts to be presented in the best possible way, so they can be useful, I can be taken somewhat seriously, and so that other, more learned board members don’t get frustrated. Could someone maybe que me in, send me a pm, or something, so I can stop cluttering up the NMB with misoriented photos? I would really appreciate that.

Looks just like the chromium steel blade I have.
