WW2 Japanese NCO's Katana, Sold
In overall good condition, a WW2 Japanese NCO's Katana (shin gunto).
Matching serial numbers 35060 to blade and scabbard throat. This
is a 100% authentic WW2 Japanese NCO's shin gunto / katana, guaranteed.
The 32 1/16 inch blade is in good condition but has been field
sharpened and has a single nick to the cutting edge. A little, tiny
bit loose in the hilt (not much). The aluminium hilt retaining some
copper paint. The locking pin works but not enough to secure the
saya / scabbard. The saya has lost its war time paint (now with
patina) and inner lining wood slats, so the saya / scabbard is loose
on the blade.
Again, 100% authentic, guaranteed. Bargain price: £(too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference AD07 (0410). Further / full
sized images available upon request.
