    Hello!!! I'm new here and I kind of need a little help.
    I found this sword in our house and there's this inscription/signature. I'm trying to figure it out but I only know a few kanji and I'm really curious as to what it means.
    Here are the images.

    Those are false kanji inscribed by someone who actually don't know kanji. They might want to inscribe 八龍刀.
