45 Kanji on Nakago — translation help

Recommended Posts

Hello. I picked up a sword which I will be selling that has about 45 kanji on the nakago. I could use some help translating.

 

Thank you in advance!

日本鍛冶長者古山陸奥介弘元 - Nihon Kaji Chojya (Japan senior/chief blacksmith) Furuyama Mutsu no Suke Hiromoto

 

the date is 天保六末年二月日 - last days of February Tenpo 6 (thx uwe for correction)

 

十二八度折返鍛 forged by folding 28 times

 

If you take a vertical pic of the entire dedication? That would aid reading

You don't need to do anything to it...just save it. That sets the correct orientation that the EXIF info from the cell hasn't set properly. Just edit, save. Upload.
