Picked this up the other day in great shape. Straight quillon, birdshead pommel blued blade, wooden scabbard. I was wondering if anyone could offer an opinion on the painted characters on the handle. I can see t=7.

Thanks

I recognized the characters as 主五耳七, though the third one is somewhat blurry (could even be 亘). I'm unsure as to what it means since I'm unfamiliar with Japanese military markings, but you can see the meanings of these characters here.
