Any info appreciated on this sword

Recommended Posts

Hello, my friend owns a gun store and apparently he traded for this sword today and wants to see if anyone can translate the writing on the fabric or give any idea how old it is.

I appreciate any help.  He didn't say how long the blade is, but he did say there is no writing on the tang.

PS The furnishings are likely Showa, but an overall shot of the total naked blade including tang might tell you more about its age.

Thanks for the replies!  I passed the info on to the owner and also directed him here so maybe he will join if he has more questions or other items to present. 

 

I'm really glad I found this place and although I know nothing about this hobby I do appreciate all of the help provided.  Thanks Brian
