Please help me understand the maker and date of this sword.


Recommended Posts

Looks like this one:  YOSHIOKI (嘉興), Shōwa (昭和, 1926-1989), Gifu – “Yoshioki” (嘉興), real name Ueno Yakichi (上野弥吉).   Unusual "yoshi"

Not much info, but looks to be born Meiji 17 (1884) Oct 1.  registered as a Seki smith Showa 18 (1943) March 2 (age about 60) and was living in Bugi-gun, (probably read as) Kamifuchi-mura
