It might be HARUMITSU (Haru = spring). Hard to tell as the pic is so enlarged and kanji are both damaged by a 'gash' or something...

Kiyomitsu. 清光.

The mei is flipped (mirrored) for some reason.

Yes you are right Ray...maybe we should call this smith "hidari Kiyomitsu"?

Funny George, the first thing that went through my mind when I saw this was "Another Hidari Mutsu". I am curious if the photo was accidentally flipped or if the smith really did sign the mei backwards.

Unfortunately I’m not sure if the Image is flipped or not, i was just intrigued as I couldn’t make sense of it but now for obvious reasons.
Kind regards Kyle

The kanji is definitive. Peace.
