The Katana came to Spain acros Philipinas at the end of the 19th century, wen we lost this place, actualy I only conseve the tsuba, the blade ad rests of the saya, no a lot sure. If you cold say me anything about the tsuba, I'll be so gratefull and you 'll can use my small knuwledge wen you want, I don't understand a lot about this swords, but I can say you the ald owner clean all the parts uncorrectly, the blade, if you want I'll show you later, but I think is not something special. Well thaks for all and nice to meet you.

Hello, I would like to see more pics about the whole sword.

I'm not a tsuba guy but by just looking at the tsuba I might guess it to be a modern copy imitating real Japanese tsuba.

I cannot identify any kanji as they seem to be crudely made. The first one seems to be combination of Masa & Fumi 正 & 文 but however these two should be below each other, not next to each other. I tried searching for kanji where these were side by side but couldn't find similar one. Rest are so blurred I can't figure them out from the pics. Also the nakago ana (the hole in the middle) looks very cruedly made.

I would like to see higher quality pictures of the tsuba and more importantly rest of the sword, that would make identification a lot easier.

To me based on these few tsuba pics I'd guess 20th century replica from China, hopefully you can post more pics of the sword and it will be a genuine sword.
