Translation and meaning of the stamp


Recommended Posts

Minor correction - There wasn't a Seki Arsenal.  The Nagoya Arsenal governed sword making in the area of Seki.  The stamp is first seen in 1940 (1 in my survey), some in 1941, but the massive majority of them are seen in 1942, with many seen in the rest of the war years..  It's not known for sure if the stamp is of the Seki Sword Guild or an Army inspector stamp working the Seki area.  But it's presence on a sword does mean the blade was made by non-traditional means.
