Help translate and Identify nakago on Showato

Recommended Posts

I am very new to using this message board, so please forgive me if I do something wrong. I was told this blade was stamped, cant tell or see in pics. Something im considering buying as a first sword before something more valuable. It is unique, as the mounts seem like civilian mounts, leather sheath, tenuki ring is beige ish yellow cloth unlike most gunto, not generic tachi fittings on handle.

 

Here are nakago pics. I am aware that there are two different nakago, i dont remember which one is the right one.

* Take into consideration that the first sword is likely to be gimei (a fake signature).

I compared the first signature to another blade by the same maker sold on aoi just now. Im sure it's fake. Different hamon too

It is worth price shopping to see what you can get for around $3,000.That can buy you a very nice quality sword, with kanteisho (authentication papers), in polish with a good habaki and shirasaya. You have a lot of options at that level.

 

 

The first gimei is priced at just under $3000 usd, is it a rip-off?

I don't have any new pictures,but i was wondering what kind of gunto koshirae it was. It has a few unique features. Waxed looking black ito, and a tenuki/tassel ring made of ito or cloth. Also a blank wood saya with a leather cover. I presume it is some kind of civilian mounts
