I guess the blade is signed Rakuyō Ichijō Horikawa-jū Kunihiro 洛陽一条堀川住国廣 and I am not sure if the mei is good --> Gimei

Worse. This is clearly a dremelled inscription. Anyone with a good working knowledge of Nihonto would immediately recognise this as a bodgy signature. Very bad news for any beginner picking up such a sword, translating the signature in the best of study intentions and going to the books to discover a big name (sorry BIG NAME) sword and hoping for a good find, only to discover it is a dud. Requiescat in Pace...
