Yes, I think you have the signature exactly right. The design is number 11, "Hikosan" 彦山, from the series "Shokoku katakiuchi" 諸国敵討 [諸國歒討] ("Vengeance in Various Provinces").

Here's another impression:

MFA Boston has a different design from the series:

Marks dates the series to 1851.

I take the scene to be from "Hikosan gongen chikai no sukedachi" 彦山権現誓助剣.
