Sold Item Notice

With clear Nioi (cloudy lining) to the Yakiba (hamon), this superb shin gunto by renowned Rikugun Jumei Tosho swordsmith Muto Hidehiro, dated 1942, is almost certain to be a true Gendaito blade.

In original polish, the 65.5 cm blade has a few scuff marks and scratches here and there, but as the photos show, is in excellent condition and bright. The tiniest tip of the blade is missing but it is hardly noticeable, nowhere near fatal and would go with any polish.

The mounts in very good order, this is a stunning sword. Further / full sized photos available upon request. Item Ref: 786 (321).
