Wakizashi Mei Translation Help

Recommended Posts

Dear Everybody!

 

Please help  me at this translation. I bought that a days ago.

Not too good condition because someone began the polishing.

But tfor me this blade looks very interesting.

The mei maybe Washu Ju Norinaga.

Please help me. Thanks in advance for your time and help.

All the best.

 

Peter

Norinaga (則長), Bunmei (文明, 1469-1487), Kaga – „Kashū-jū Norinaga“ (加州住則長), „Norinaga“ (則長), „Norinaga saku“ (則長作),
according to transmission the son of the 2nd gen. Fujishima Chikanori (近則)

 

Kashu rather than Washu maybe?

 

Brian

 

Edit to add: Looking again, I think Washu may be correct, it looks less like Kashu now.
