Sales enquiries

Takeyama Yoshinao was a Rikugun Jumei Tosho sword smith who therefore received tamehagane which is required to make high quality blades; click here for details.

The 26 1/4 inch blade is in exceptionally good condition, with minimal marks / scuffs. The sword generally is also very good for its age; the same and bindings are very good, so too the scabbard with the locking pin mechanism present and working well. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Well, well above average shin gunto from a quality swordsmith. Yours for £x (too late, now sold - original sales price divulged for small fee). Please quote item reference AA93 (0067). Further / large images available upon request.
