  1. Hi Mark, Motosato/Motozato is indeed a surname. Unfortunately I'm not able to decipher the last character on the reverse side and I'm unsure of the meaning. Best regards, Ray
  2. Hitachi no kami Mune(shige) https://nihontoclub.com/smiths/MUN397
  3. This is what Tsuruta replied. "I think this place must be fixed as umegane." He did not answer with specifics on how this repair was done.
  4. Kogatana is signed Etchu no kami Fujiwara Masatoshi.
  5. I saw those spots as well. The concentric rings look a bit like a microweld. There was a shop in Japan advertising their nihonto micro weld services on Instagram at one point. I am not sure if that is the answer though.
  6. Tenbun period I believe the nagasa is 2 shaku 6 bu
  7. https://www.google.com/search?q=takehisa+gendaito+site:www.militaria.co.za&rlz=1C1GCEU_enUS954US954&sxsrf=ALiCzsbxsMI_D0YHrk9m76Kb1GJRqWybKw:1655595607961&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiupOqglrj4AhV5kGoFHUfdAvAQrQIoBHoECAoQBQ&biw=1536&bih=849&dpr=2.5
  8. The first looks like it may be Nobukuni
  9. Signed: Takehisa Dated: Fall, 1943
  10. This is one I expected to sell quickly, but just want to recap a few details. This sword is massively heavy, healthy, wide and thick. It a very robust and powerful polearm. Workmanship is beautiful, and the relationship between Kunihide and his teacher Nagayama Ikkansai Yoshihiro is clear, in studying the hamon and the workmanship in the ji. The blade is ubu, signed and dated, and has both sayagaki and kanteisho. There is a lot of value and a lot to enjoy in this one. If anyone was thinking of it and have questions, please feel free to reach out at raymondsinger@gmail.com. Best regards, Ray
  11. Perhaps thinking of Kajihei?
