Signiture translation.

I have yet to finish translation of the signiture on my late father's blade. As it is now mine. I would like to know it's pedigree. Any help would be helpful. I belive the first part to be honmitsi. But I'm unsure of even that. Please look at the photos I posted on the forum

Tang writing on both sides


I have this blade with a slightly more corroded tang than usual, with both sides full of kanji, I would like to get some help, at least the to find out the last 2 kanji of the signature to start with my research, or with help of the other side as it does not look like a dating (perhaps a memorial writing, or the second part of the long signature?)
