Help for translation Katana Mei


Recommended Posts

Dear Uwe.


Welcome and thank you for sharing your collection, you have some nice things..  As regards your first sword and its mei from the image all I can make out is the last two which read Hiro saku, that looks like the last two of three so the whole thing would read something like, Munehiro saku, meaning made by Munehiro.  Unfortunately I cannot make out the first kanji, I am sure someone will shortly.


All the best.
