Help with Mei translation

Hi, I am new to this forum and collecting and would appreciate help with translating the Kanji insciptions on the tangs of a recently purcahed Wakizashi & Katana.
The first two pictures are of the Wakizashi and the next 3 of the Katana. Please note I had to photograph the signature in two parts for one side of the Katana tang.
Thank you for your help.

Bungo Takada Mei Help

Greetings from yet another newbie.

This sword was discovered by me at the bottom of a box at an estate garage sale over thirty-five years ago. I paid a whopping $20.00 for it, which at the time was actually quite a bit for a thirteen year old. I knew enough back then, thanks to Hawley's article in the old book "Guns of the World," to only oil the blade and to leave the rest of it alone. I tentatively translated the signature but as my resources were very limited I was unable to learn anything more. Sadly, over time I almost forgot I owned it.
