      Pardon the personal post to the list but I don't have
      Gary Williams email address.

      Gary,

      Got you some starter info for your Gunto Sword. Here
      are what few folks I know have been able to come up
      with.

      "I get: a resident of an unknown provence with rotten
      handwritting named MasaNori made this. I am pretty
      sure about the MasaNori but have no clue on the first
      few kanji. There is a MasaNori listed as a Seki smith
      around 1939. There is a couple of other MasaNori
      listed but I think the mei looks Seki; only a guess on
      that. Harry?"

      there was a NORO EIKICHI ���������� ���� in Seki who
      signed
      MASANORI."

      Hope that this helps out in your search on more info
      on this particular smith I will probably have more
      information in the coming week. Send me a message off
      list so that I can get your email address. I will send
      the information directly to you instead of the whole
      list. My sincere apologies for posting this to the
      list. Thank you for the bandwidth.

      Bob R
