Hello all,


I would greatly appreciate any assistance in translating the signature on my sword. I attempted to use a book my instructor gave me to translate it myself, but I'm not getting anywhere. Thank you, James

The upper character is "MASA"
A lower character cannot be read.
Isn't there any picture copied more greatly?

Thank you.

James -

Please try to post something with a little higher resolution. Initially it looks to be modern, so a photo of the whole blade would also be helpful.
