Andy most people here cannot read Japanese and even those who can would be little help. There are thousands of Blacksmiths, makers marks and tools sold by wholesalers. Just because you can read the character they often means nothing, they are just sounds that make up a name. An example Ouchi a well known blacksmith brand - is made of two characters "O" sound means great "chi" part means inside.
Congratulations on your purchase and enjoy.

The one on wood reads Sora (maybe).
Second one...can't read well enough.
3rd ??Maybe Honna?? Hiroko
4th is same as second, hard to read properly
5th no idea
6th hard to read but some part might say something like authentic forge...?
If you could clean them up, take a proper in focus photograph the right way up (not on the side) it might be possible to get a bit more detail.Semtex fixes all
