Hello

Recently I acquired a couple swords.... In researching them I found this forum, and due to the knowledge base displayed, joined in hope of learning more.

 

Here is some shots of one of the swords... I can provide more pics as needed.

Bruce, I think the last character is SAKU (made), with an unusual flourish.

 

The mei looks good to me even without going to the books.  Seems to be a GASSAKU (joint work)...

 

Regards,

BaZZa.

Thanks BaZZa
Here is a close up of the last part.
Also, are you able to translate the other side?
