IT WOULD SIMPLIFY THINGS IF YOU ROTATED YOUR PICTURE SO THE KANJI DO NOT HAVE TO BE READ SIDEWAYS. THEY READ DOWN FROM THE CUTTING EDGE. FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, THE SMITH APPEARS TO BE MICHIHIRO OF OSHU, A MID 18TH CENTURY SWORDSMITH OF LITTLE REKNOWN.

Dear Mr. Coleman,

Thank You for Your answer.
Regarding MICHIHIRO OF OSHU shall I read 4-2nd characters from the bottom?

Once again thank You.
