Translation Help on a Wakizashi

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to translate the mei on an old Wakizashi my wife's grandpa brought back from WWII.  


I don't know anything about it and unfortunately can no longer ask where it was acquired as my wife's grandpa is no longer with us.  So i am hoping some one here can help me out a little.  


The research I have done on the translation and looking at other verified swords, it looks kind of like it says Kozuke no kami Kanesada but it isnt an exact match to those either.  Can anyone help verify or correct my translation?  and also, does this seem to be a genuine piece or is it a later reproduction?


I can get some more pictures uploaded later if needed.
