Hey everyone,
new to the forum and I'm after some help. I've had this sword in the family for awhile now and no ones bothered to have a look at it and admire it but me. I've got no knowledge on the sword and I'm not sure if its a real one or not, Also the translation of the markings on the side would be great if possible.
Any help at all to do with the sword would be appreciated!

Thanks, Jack.
