New buy

Hello to all, I went to a small military fair today, to get a tassel and ended up with another sword,could anyone help with the signiture?

Many thanks in advance,


It reads "Noshu Seki junin Kanemichi saku".
The date is 1941 (February I think, but could be March).

The smith could *possibly* be "KAN1401". If so, there is a bit of info on him in the book "Touko Taikan" by Tokunou, page 132.

Thank you Pete,
I got a little more information on it to, i think it may have been shortened from katana to wakizashi, the hamon tho faint to the eye and not visible in pics seems to go straight of the blade at the kissaki.
