Help on Confirming Norimitsu swordsmith generation

Hi friends,
I need some expert advise on dating my Wakizashi.
I am mostly sure it is Norimitsu, but would like to confirm this, and also if possible to date the generation, school.
My late father gave it to me when I started practising Kendo,and because I was interested in japanese swords since I was a kid.
It had been in his possession for a long time, he acquired it being a collector, but I do not know more details on provenance.

I uploaded more pictures under private collection item.

Any hints welcome.
Thank you so much
