    Both look like horrible acid etched Chinese fakes.

    I agree. The acid etched blades are a dead give- away.

    Thank-you.
    I guess I shoul not buy a sword if I can not see the Nagago with a signature and the colour of the metal ( to establish how old it is).
    Well I paid 300 euro for both.
    So I guess I didnt loose tooo much money. But enough.

    The serial number on the habaki and the crude carving of kanji just above the habaki are both consistant feature of Chinese fakes and not a feature found on true Nihonto. A lao mentioned, the acid etch is also a dead give away. In the future, post here before you buy. I hope you can get a refund.
