Hello collectors.  I have a great handmade gendaito sword for sale.  The nakago literally says it was made with tamahagane--which makes it pretty cool.  In this case, you don't have to guess traditionally made or not?  'Made with Tamahagane'--uh, let me guess.  :)  


I am double-checking my translation of the mei.  I get 'Noshu ju Seki Sato Sukemitsu Nobumitsu Tamahagane kore tsukuru'.  But I would like to make sure I have it EXACTLY right.  


Can you guys help me out with an exact translation?


Thank you.
