Sold Item Notice

We guarantee this item is authentic, not a later reproduction.

A late war Imperial Japanese army officer's katana, the blade with some ware, no signature and no government stamps, indicating the blade was hand forged, though I doubt of the finest carbon steel, quite possibly a convict, railway worker or even retired / injured soldier made blade.
