Japanese language experts, please help translate the characters on this blade.

I bought this when I was looking at a collection of coins, I don't know much about it but it feel like high quality. I'd say it is pre-WWII, but that is the extent of my knowledge of this wakeashi.

Super appreciative to any helpers.


I have asked around, but got no replies. One contacted said this article gives good information. FWIW.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Hi Peter, thank you so much for the article, I shall read it with fervour now. So many thanks.
