Hello! I have an old Katana with a signature I'd love to have translated, i am trying to track down it's history. based on the poor quality of the wood in the handle and scabbard i'm assuming its at least a few hundred years old. thanks for any who can help! 2 Images with signatures are attached.

The left one would be the owner's name Futa/Fuda (surname) Gisaburō(male given name). The right one doesn't make much sense.
