Bishu Osafune Kanemitsu Tachi 1335 February

Hello all,

I recently purchased this sword and trying to pinpoint the exact smith or finding examples of his work over the internet.

Any help or opinion would be greatly apreciated.

tachi mei: Bishu Osafune Kanemitsu
Date : 1335 February

nagasa 69.7 cm
NBTHK TOKUBETSU KICHYO paper

I attached a picture with similar mei, this sword is called BUNKAZAI FUKUSHIMA O-KANEMITSU "The Ten Students"

Best regards

is this a date or something else on the right side of the tang?

Hello,

I have this long wakizashi, I managed to translate the mei:
越前守藤原國次 Echizen No Kami Fujiwara Kanitsugu

but have trouble with the otehr side, are the kanji these? 於熊本以南蛮鐡
It does not look like a date, perhaps a location to refer to?

I found a similar sword, a katana, might be its match for a daisho :

Can someone help me with the other side, what it might be?

shobu zukuri katana with interesting tang

Hello all,

I acquired this shobu zukuri katana but I can not fully translate the tang, it was made in 1929? and used a special steel or so?

please someone tell me what the tang says on both sides, I aam very curious about it.
I think the hamon is etched, not real, or perhaps too weak to see it under the make up polish, the date makes it an intersting blade anyway.

registration card with interesting writing

Hello, I got a katana probalby from late Koto period, the tang is unshortened mumei but maybe there is a weak signature, not sure.
On the registration card it does not say mumei but something else I can not translate, also the first column on the left side which is usualy empty has writing, some with red. It is perhaps due to the sayagaki on the saya?
If someone could translate this 2 first column from left would be great.
regards
Peter
