    I am hoping someone might be able to give me an idea of what to do with this sword blade I aquired at an estate sale. I purchased a WWII USMC footlocker filled with quite a few things, one being what appears to be a (in not so great condition) Japanese Sword Blade. The inscriptions I was told read" Kawachi (no) Kami Fujiwara Kunisuke and it could date back to the 1600's.

    I was told it appears to be a family heirloom blade, missing the handle. It is pretty rusty looking, has a small chip in the middle of the blade. It is 25-26" in length. Hopefully the photo link below give a better idea....

    Is this even worth restoring and if so, where and how do I go about doing this being I have no clue who could in West Virginia.

    Would I be better off to just sell it to someone that is a collector and that would appreciate this item moreso then myself? I have no clue as to what it is even worth.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
