Hello. I picked up a sword which I will be selling that has about 45 kanji on the nakago. I could use some help translating.

Thank you in advance!

Let me try those photos again—the photos were right, but my cell
phone tlipped them.

I have found that if you crop a photo before posting, even a tiny bit, the website software will post it upright correctly.

You don't need to do anything to it...just save it. That sets the correct orientation that the EXIF info from the cell hasn't set properly. Just edit, save. Upload.
