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.

Tho the world is shrouded in darkness, the gloom is oft pierced by illuminating shafts of light.

But while some seek out the light and radiate forth its glow.  Others lash out in rage and frustration at their own refusal to see...

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?
