    You need to photograph the tangs bottom down for comments sir.
    It would also be nice to see the complete swords too.

    I'm getting bad vibes from all except the one with the Sakura stamp; I'd bet the others are modern Chinese manufacture:

    平成二十
    Heisei 20 Year =2008

    中国大連
    Chukoku Dairen
    China, Dalien

    ----
    The one "genuine" WW2 Japanese sword is the one with the {昭} stamp; I think the signature is:
    武山 義臣
    Takeyama Yoshiomi

    [EDIT: there might be one more WW2-era sword, the one with the darker tang and file marks]

    Yeah .... that other sword might be:

    佐藤 幸平
    Sato Yukihira

    If that's correct, he won 4th seat at the 1941 6th Shinsaku Nihonto Denrankai.

    So I decided to take better photos of everything because I realize I wasn't doing anyone any favours with the brief description and photos. All of the swords have assembled bits from various time periods so each group of pictures is asociatrd with there respective blades. Thank you in advance and enjoy the sword porn...

    So I'll start off saying this is the first sword someone has removed the rust from the tang and its signed on both sides.

    This is the Chinese knock-off:
    平成二十年
    Heisei Nijyu-Nen
    Heisei 20 Year [2008]

    川嶋作
    Kawashima-saku
    Made by Kawashima
    [a Japanese name, but this is a Chinese-made blade]
