1889 Model WW2 Imperial Japanese Cavalry Trooper's / Army NCO's Sword

Sales enquiries

100% Guaranteed Authentic. Most likely a japanese army NCO's sword (rather than a Japanese cavalry trooper's sword) (there is much photographic and other evidence to show the 1889M was used by cavalry and infantry), in great shape and, we think, matching serial number (the serial number on the saya is partially corroded).


A well above average example for only £300. Further / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference F41. Box 888-1m (2.495 Kg).

The 30 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The grip and guard equally good, a little wear and slight staining here and there, the leather thumb loop inside the guard has broken off (very common). The sword sheathes and draws well into its steel saya (scabbard); the locking mechanism works well. A very good buy. Please quote item reference F44 (891). Further / full sized images available upon request.
