To the best of our knowledge we have tried to verify the signature; the signature of the sword is not guaranteed as there are no NBTHK or NTHK origami (certification papers) to go with the sword.
To be reasonably certain as to the maker of a specific sword, it is necessary to submit the sword for shinsa (judging) by one of the major Japanese sword study associations (NBTHK or NTHK). These organisations will judge the sword and issue appropriate papers (origami) attesting to the sword's authenticity and/or historical importance.
