Looks late Muromachi or Momoyama to me. Masame Hada I think. Beyond that, I’ll let better people chime in.

I concur with JP and suggest looking at Yamato inspired smiths. Is it just me, or does the nakago look odd?

It's certainly suriage, & probably o-suriage. I agree it's likely Muromachi. Wish I could tell if that's masame hada I'm seeing, or oil streaks.

The rust color looks odd, and there is a lighter patch on it; that is what i was referring to.
