Default Swords ?

A friend had these walk into his shop . It appears as they have been professionally re-done as the blades are very nice and they are in new bags and mounts . We are trying to figure out the smith and relative age . Any help would be appreciated .

The nakago doesn't look that old, unless it was cleaned during the polish.

Nihonto guys will have to chime in on age.

From the photos the polish looks awful
Western rather then Japanese
