Translation On A Gendai Tanto By 2.8 Million Yen Smith Toshihide

Recommended Posts

Does the spine of the nakago have a very distinct diagonal file mark towards the Mune machi? If so, then the blade is almost surely shoshin, as this is a kantei point for the Horii group.

I have heard from a friend who has translated for me.  The side of the nakago that is full of kanji reads 'Taisho nana nen nigatsu (Tisho 7th year 2nd

month)Masako (1st name) shyoji (who
possess)'.
 
So, this tanto was made in 'February, 1918'.  And was Special Order made for '(Mr.) Masako'.
