What is most interesting to me is that the symbols on the top line on each side appear printed in the reverse order. So it is not about reading this from right to left or left to right, but from point to hilt. The first symbol on the right is the Arrow, while the opposite side has a Buddha, these are followed by a triangle and then the same 4 words or symbols and another triangle. The second line of text, which appears only on the right side, might be the maker's name.
