WW2 Japanese Kyu-Gunto, family mon, Ichihara
A rare black same (rayskin) WW2 Japanese field officer's kyu-gunto
with family mon, blade by famous gendaito smith Ichihara Nagamitsu.
In original polish, blade made and signed by Ichihara
Nagamitsu, an Imperial Japanese WW2 army field officer's kyu-gunto
with family mon of the Maeda
The 20 3/4 inch (excluding habaki) blade is in original polish
and exceptionally good condition; it has a light misty dappling
throughout that a light professional polish would remove if required.
Everything else is good; the same is in good order as are the twisted
wire bindings, and the leather field scabbard is also good. A real
gem of a WW2 Japanese officer's sword. A great investment at £1800
as this sword will only appreciate in value. Further / full sized
pictures available upon request. The item reference number is B47
