Hello guys ,i just recieved this sword and wonder if you could help with the mei, i tryed a little myself and came up with Katsunori, also the blade seems late war maybe stainless with a split or crack in the hamon the entire lenth of the blade through the yokote into kassaki on the mei side, what would cause such a thing and could it have been there since it was turned out,

many thanks,

Peter
