I translated this sword on Facebook not long ago. My impression is that it is signed Bishu Osafune Kiyomichi. 

Thank you very much. Am I correct in understanding this is the Muromashi period? 16th century? Regards.

At minimum, it may be purporting to be Sue-Bizen (late Muromachi period). But the mei has an unusual appearance, I would suggest having it validated at shinsa to confirm the authenticity and time period.

Could I get a clear, close-up of the habaki, please?  I've seen this pattern, but yours has a nice look to it.
