sayagaki on gifted sword

Recommended Posts

Here are two sections of a sayagaki I'd like translated. It is thought that this was a gifted sword from so-and-so from so-and-so. The sayagaki is dated "early spring 2006" (Emperor dating system, 1939 I think. The sayagaki goes on to say :Izumi no kami Kanesada." I'm very curious if family names are given here which seems more likely than the names of individuals. Interesting sayagaki, I think. Help to complete this reading please.

Thanks Steve, exactly what I was looking for. As for as the dating, I messed up on that. It is dated: "early spring" Koki 2600 (1940).
