the first line, form left to right
every, flower, to flow

second line
to hit, beauty, to work

Note that this is the most common meaning of each kanji, and the meaning changes depending on the context.

Greetings from Canada!

I’ve been searching for the meaning behind some kanji I found on a photo but haven’t been able to find a reliable answer. Does anyone know what the kanji on the left side of the photo I attached says? (Ignore the red box)

Don't you have a clearer picture? It's the artist's name, probably a Zen Buddhist priest, anyway.

Don’t have one of the seal, but my parents were interested in knowing what that writing meant! Thanks again for the response

This might be needless to say, but the seal (落款 rakkan) refers to "the red box". Don't you have a close-up of it?

kō, makoto
truth, true heart

Note that this kanji is uncommon in Japanese. See the following page for the definition in Chinese. (Incidentally, the Japanese reading "mokoto" is a typo in the wiktionary page.)

I fixed the Wiktionary page. However, the error also exists elsewhere, including on weblio, so it may persist for a while.
weblio page: 悾とは - 漢字辞典 Weblio辞書

I thought weblio got all its data from the EDRDG databases, but I searched their KANJIDIC2 database, and it doesn't give a kun-yomi for this character, so I am not sure where the error came from.

Hi Guys! Can you please help me with these? I manage to find most of these names on blades, but these are particularly hard. I numbered them for reference. Thanks so much!

The right kanji is 練, but the left one is illegible.
Ah, thank you, yes. In that case, I think the other character must be 武. So the whole phrase, reading (vertically) R to L, would be 練武, (れんぶ), practise martial arts.
Does that make sense?

Yes, probably that's the correct answer. The position of the long cursive line from the upper left to the lower right is a bit irregular, though.
