Hello all,

Was wondering if anyone would be good enough to offer some translation assistance with this tang from a Shingunto. It appears to be out of polish but has a cloudy hamon and could be traditionally made even with the seki arsenal stamp (?).

Also, I have attached a picture in the link below, of the Tsuba which also bears four stamps and I havent seen these before on shingunto tsuba (???)

Any help or comment in due course would be appreciated.

Amazing, thanks Tom C and Uwe for your very quick response. I will research the smith and see what I can find.

Hopefully someone may know something about the meaning of those stamps on the Tsuba.

Rob
