Hi,

 

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

Horikawa Kunihiro is a very big name, he is considered (with Umetada Myoju) as the founder of the Shinto tradition. 

 

This sword has 99.99% chances to be 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...
