Showato Japanese Katana in Civilian Mounts,
In very good condition / high polish, a Showato katana in civilian
mounts, signed by known WW2 blade smith Nobumitsu.
A stunning katana. Most likely the blade taken from an Imperial
Japanese gunto and put into civilian mounts. Signed "Noshu
Seki Nobumitsu" with post 1926 / pre 1942 Showa stamp.
The 65.5 cm (from mune-machi to tip / cutting section) blade is
in very good condition, some small flecks here and there but very
few. The mounts are all very good; this is one impressive Japanaese
katana. The sword sheathes and draws very well.
A bargain. Please quote item reference J40 (1127). Further / full
sized pictures available upon request. Box 1127-1.18
