Very highly regarded smith. I haven't studied the mei, but looks worth investigating if you have a chance to purchase.

More importantly, does the sword look like a Kunimichi sword?
Because even if the signature matches existing signatures, it doesn't mean anything if the sword is inconsistent with a Kunimichi sword. Likewise, if the signature looks strange for Kunimichi, but the sword is everything a Kunimichi sword should be, it makes one more confident that one has a real Kunimichi sword. So this is a not-so-subtle way of encouraging you to avoid chasing signatures, and start looking at the sword itself. Find out what kind of swords Kunimichi made, what kind of shape, hamon, tip, nakago, hataraki, etc. Then, if you think your sword stands up to that standard, see if the signatures are close.
