Hello.

I have this katana since 1994

From the begining it was not clear the sword maker of this katana since the ittosai yasutsuna i found was a Gunto sword maker and the mei is differnt from this since it has 6 kanjis compared with gunto maker that has 5.

This katana looks older than gunto swords

Also the steel and tempered looks complete different from Ittosai Yasutsuna Gunto swordmaker

If somebody could help me i would appreciate

 

Regadrs

 

Javier

Still the mei looks like Yasutsuna to me.
