  12. Hello First of all thanks for assistance. Blade is out of polish and can't see any activity. Have bo-hi from both sides and deep sori. Тhe kissaki is broken, but I don't think boshi is affected. Generally is in very bad shape. Tsuba is very nice silver and i want to buy the blade just because tsuba but price of 1000 € is very high. I will stay away from this.
  13. 保昌國光 ? I'm not sure about first kanji, but think the second is right

    The mei has nothing to do with the real Muramasa.
