Can’t say I like it. Genuine blade badly remounted. I don’t know if the blade is any good but out of polish and I don’t think it’s worth having it polished.

The signature was probably made with a screwdriver. Not Japanese! The KOJIRI might be the only item of interest. FUCHI and SEPPA look like over-cleaned with sandpaper or a steel-wire brush.

Thank you All for your opinion and for your experience.
A few more questions. Is this blade original or is it a Chinese fake?

How is the signature read?

The signature is a very, very poor rendering of 正宗 (Masamune).

Yes, I noticed that yesterday when looking through a Meikan. I thought “damn! That’s what they were going at!” Somewhere in the great void, Masamune must be rolling on the floor, laughing.

 

To reply to the question, I personally believe the blade is genuine, but one of those project piece that’s actually not worth the project. It’s probably a low grade, real blade, but I’m not the best qualified here to reply. However, it doesn’t look like a Chinese blade to me, and I have seen many.
