Help with signature

I recently came across a Showa period katana. I am having difficulty deciphering the maker's signature. I attended an antique arms show and showed it to a dealer who said he was unable identify the maker with certainty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Newbe looking for translation

Hello All,
Looking to get a translation or clarification on this sword.

Lots more photos if needed.
Thank You,

New Collector

Hello, I discovered this site while looking up information on three swords I recently collected which effectively jump started my collection into something that I am really proud to own.

I have however little knowledge of the vast number of swordsmiths that have spanned the history of Japan to make these remarkable pieces of weaponry. I'd like help identifying the history of these swords.

Sword 1: Showa era WWII Naval Officers sword. Theres what's been translated to a date on the other side and this is a picture of the signature. (first two attachments)
