Sales enquiries

With hamon still very clear, this shin gunto was taken from the officer because it still has its sword knot attached (mass surrender swords had their knots removed by the Japanese officers to save some pride). Seki stamped, so post 1941. The signature a bit hard to read (not that is really matters with a Seki stamp on the blade) but appears to be Kanemuni.

The 26 1/2 inch Nagasa (cutting edge section) blade is in very good condition; some scuffs, but not too many. Overall the sword is in very good condition and with a full seppa set. The locking catch still works, but does not hold too firmly. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A nice example in very good condition and made highly desirable as it still has the original sword knot. Yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference O99 (0184). Further / full sized images available upon request.
