    I'm fairly certain about the second kanji of the name, but I cannot find the smith when I google his name. I think the signature is:

    義波
    Yoshinami

    昭和癸未春
    Showa MizunotoHitsuji Haru
    Spring, 1943

    癸未 is the Zodiac calendar and appears every 60 years; in Showa it was in 1943.

    Guy, it's Yoshiharu 義治, not Yoshinami

    Thanks to Nick, I was able to find a little about your Yoshiharu:
