WW2 Japanese Gendaito Shin Gunto by Muto
A superb gendaito ww2 Japanese army officer's shin gunto from
one of the leading Rikugun Jumei Tosho swordsmiths, Muto Hidehiro.
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
The mounts in very good order, this is a stunning sword. Further
/ full sized photos available upon request. Item Ref: 786 (321).
