Hi, I'm very new to this hobby and have the option to purchase on this item. Could someone please shed some light on the text on this Tsuka?

Any assistance will be much appreciated

Danie, in the Nihonto related topics section, there is s topic , 10 commandments of nihonto. I added another, read and research before you buy. So far all the swords you have been interested in are Chinese crap. Get some books , Google, search the NMB. 

But don't be afraid to consult the NMB , and asking for help, no matter what you have found .

Even better, take a look at the For Sale section of NMB, Danie. You aren't likely to get cheated there!

 

But, Neil is 100% correct - go buy some reference books! A quick search on NMB will give you quite a number of recommendations. Then, spend some time time studying, so you will have a better chance of recognizing good from the morass of bad.
