WW2 Japanese Imperial Naval Officer's Kai Gunto Sword

Sales enquiries

This is a late WW2 Kai Gunto; the blade is unsigned (it has a couple of painted characters only) with the obligatory anchor stamp. Though the blade is not gendaito, it does have grain, so it seems a few steps up from the mass produced blades of the era.

The 64cm (nagasa / point to habaki) blade is in very good condition with some scuffs / light scratches but too many, and the hamon is still very clear. The sword fittings are all good. The rayskin saya with some cracking and scuffing etc. as is to be expected. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very nice, well above example with an above average blade. Please quote item reference J97 (1157). Further / full sized images available upon request.
