WW2 Japanese Officer's Shin Gunto - Katsumasaimage 622 2

Sold Item Notice

This is a truly stunning shin gunto in very good original polish, made / signed "Nosyu Seki ju Kojima Katsumasa saku"; Kojima Katsumasa one of the more notable swordsmiths of the time. Complete with original blue and brown (for 2nd or 1st Lieutenant or Captain rank officer) sword knot, which almost certainly means this sword was taken from a Japanese officer as normally surrender swords had their sword knots removed beforehand.
