We have tried to verify the signature as well as possible, the signature on the sword is not guaranteed because there is no NBTHK or NTHK origami (certification paper) present with the sword.
To be fairly certain of 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 assess the sword and draw up documents (origami) describing the authenticity and/or historic importance of the sword.
