Good Day All, the tang on this blade has been cut, and I'm having a buggar of a time trying to find the translation / meaning on this sword.  Any suggestions/assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

M

摂州住藤原囗 

 

Sesshū-jū Fujiwara / cut-off

 

The last bit looks like it could be 宗. There should be a two-kanji name after Fujiwara, so I would expect something like 宗澄 (Munezumi).

Steve,

is the second (alternative) kanji for the province a common writing?

It's a very unusual variant of 州. I've never seen it before, but I guess it was trendy among a few Sesshū smiths.
