Sales enquiries

A 100% authentic Japanese world war two navy officer's sword in very good condition. I am certain it has a so-called "machine made" blade. There is no signature to the tang, just the number "559" stamped to it, along with the anchor naval stamp. Although there is a signature to one of the fittings (please do not ask for a photo of it, I just mention this as a matter of fact).

It is rare to find a kaigunto like this in such good order. Although the blade is machine made, the tsuka (grip) and saya (scabbard) are of rayskin, so I suspect the original officer had some standing.

The 62 cm blade is in very good order, a few minor scratches and saya scuffing, but not much; a very good example overall. Further / full sized images upon request. Our item reference number is 801 (341)
