The 26 3/8 inch nagasa (cutting edge section) blade is in very good condition, a few small patina streaks, nothing much, and firm in the hilt. The aluminium hilt / tsuka has good amounts of its original copper coloured paint and is in very good shape. The saya / scabbard has quite a bit of its original war time browning and kink one side but is overall very good for its age; the locking system works well. The sword sheathes and draws very well, and the locking mechanism works very well.

A great early war example at a low price; yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference S72 (0690). Further / full sized images available upon request.
