Hi Guys this is a new acquisition for me.
I'm trying to figure out if this is authentic and if so whom the sword smith may be.
Sword feels and looks good based on my limited knowledge, sword is tight.
Only one side of the blade is marked.
That was the BEST picture I could get of the characters on the blade.
I also wonder if the Blade Collar could be silver it "appears to be".
Blade is nice sword has some issues with scabbard and locking device MIA
Any general Info would be great as I am always learning in this forum.
Thank you guys I really appreciate the help
