WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Officer's Shin
Gunto Katana, Sold
In good condition, a WW2 Japanese Army Officer's Shin Gunto, signed,
post 1941 Seki stamp.
The signature is either Masatsugu or Masamichi. The post 1941 Seki
stamp makes this a showato blade.
The 61.2 cm Nagasa (cutting edge section) blade is in good condition
with hamon still clear. All the fittings in good shape. Everything
nice and tight. The locking pin mechanism still works well. The
sword sheathes and draws well.
A great, well above average example for just £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference AA97 (0074). Further / full
sized photos available upon request.
