Sword identification

Hello there, I have an idea I've posted this before but can't find it on this site.
I am trying to identify the age, swordsmith, period of a Japanese sword I have. Please see the photo's and I think I have covered all the useful elements to enable an ID to be made by someone who knows what they're talking about. I am also trying to establish a value as well with a view selling it. Any help I can get will be welcome. Best wishes and stay safe.

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?)
