    Default Tang Inscription

    I wonder if somebody would be so kind as to translate the inscription on my sword? I seem to have lost the original translation provide by the smith, Enomoto Sadahito.

    Omote
    'Izu ju Sadahito saku'

    Izu is the old name for a domain in Shizuoka. Sadahito is the sword maker's name...saku is an honorific.
