    Thank You Kindly, Bob.
    Any idea of age? I know it's a long reach, but it all helps.

    Unlike most militaria, Japanese swords can not be judged simply from photographs. Signatures require verification, by study of the materials used to forge the blade, style of tempering, forging technique and the manner in which the tang is shaped and filed. Others may wish to guess but unless an item is clearly identified from images, I always withold an opinion. Sorry.
