Further notes (see Comments for full researcher’s details):  many Koto sword references checked,  but unable to locate this Tomonari signature.  A check of Juyo Token references found no Tomonari blades with this specific length being granted Juyo rank as of 1999.  The researcher believes this signature is worthy of further study / investigation.
