    Hi,

    Here is the translations:

    武士道 (Bushidou) - Bushido

    Bushido - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Cheers!

    I would like to see pictures of the entire blade to be able to judge it being a Japanese blade. The carving is not what I would expect to see on a Japanese blade. The meaning does not make any sense as kanji carved in to the ji of a blade usually has religious significance.

    I found that strange as well.

    Some sort of commercial item or just a souvenir piece?

    I hope our new member comes back with more pictures so an educated judgement can be made.

    Bob, I think an education judgement has already been made. There is no way those characters should be on a Japanese blade; and if they are, they (1) are modern -- the "font" style is typically "Asahi News Font" or similar -- and (2) would ruin a genuine blade.

    Guy-
    I agree with all you say. I was hoping for a complete image as an educational tool for the membership.
