As of the short inscriptions on both side of the blade just over the grip are not clear enough to read them.
The main long inscription(s).
Sword given by the emperor (the bearer of which is invested with discretionary powers) - symbol of delegated power.
The imprints of the two four-character each stamps
under the long inscription are not good enough to read,too.

With regards,
