    Help Deciphering Tang Signature

    Hello all,
    This is my first post on the Nihon-to forum, I am usually to be found lurking on the antique military swords side.
    I am hoping that someone will be able to help me by reading the tangs of these two katana and telling me what they say.
    The katana are not old - no more than about 20 years old in fact but the seller says that they are traditionally forged Japanese katana. Are they?
    Sorry about the poor photos but I had to use the ones from the advert.
    Thanks for any help or guidance.

    Based solely on these two poor photos, I would say there is a high probability they are modern replicas. This forum has all but died out as it allows so little bandwidth for photos that translation are too difficult.
