sayagaki meaning/translation ?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently bought a Momoyama blade on Ebay for a fair price. On the shirasaya, there was a paper label, slightly eroded. Here are a couple of pictures.

I guess this inscriptions are not contemporary to the blade, but were added later...

Can this however help "identify" the blade, some of its origin and history?

Thanks for your help ! (I'm still at the beginning of studying, and really need help) :
