Please can anyone help with the kanji on my sword I have identified the "Tada" and I think there is a date, but dont know what date.

Yes, it is TADA-something, but I can't tell what it is. Can't see the 2nd kanji very well on the left side.
The date is Showa 19, which is 1944.
The tang has been cut off - the rest of the date is missing.


Saipan59, or Pete, please help

I just recently posted a forum blog with images of my swords tang and current condition. I have tried to search the Mei's and signatutes myself but it's proven to be a high class profession.
