We have tried to verify the signature to our best ability, the signature on the sword could not be verified because there is no NBTHK or NTHK origami (certification paper) included with the sword.
To be reasonably sure about the maker of a specific sword, it is necessary to submit the sword to one of the most important Japanese sword study groups (NBTHK or NTHK) for shinsa (inspection). These organisations will judge the sword and draw up documents (origami) describing the authenticity and/or historic value of the sword.
