  8. Hello my name is David I am trying to translate the mei on my gunto sword I bought it when I was 15 and 35 years on have decided to find out all I can about it One side of the tang I believe reads Moritsugu Norisada of Chikuzen Fukuoka made this The other side is a mystery to me I thought it may have been a date but I cannot match it with any I have seen The blade although in need of polish is straight and nick free and would look nice in polish When I know for sure the swordsmiths name I will be gathering as much info on him as I can as a project Regards,
