  1. It is the same design as the Tsuba picture you posted.
  2. Greetings, I got some great help below on the translation of the signature on the WWII find below. I was wondering if the signature on the Tsuba is legible enough for a translation, and if so I would appreciate this group's help. Many thanks, John
  3. Thanks for taking a look. I appreciate your insight. John
  4. Thanks so much for the information. This is very helpful and opens up a whole new line of research. Thanks. Bruce attached are pics of the saya.
  5. I own a sword that was passed down from my grandfather who brought it back to the United States after World War II. This sword has lived in attics and garages for the last 50 years, and I am trying to learn more about its history and determine whether it might be something that is worth restoring. If you could help me in any way with translating the signature, I would appreciate it. I tried to get a closer picture of the first couple of symbols that don't show up well on the full signature shot. Thanks! John
