WW2 Gendaito Civilian (for war use) Japanese
In aged as is condition, a WW2 Gendaito Civilian (for war use)
Gendaito or earlier traditionally forged unsigned family blade.
The 19 1/2 inch blade has a very clear hamon and some rust patches.
The tsuka / handle is aged but sound. The leather covered field
service saya / scabbard is aged (we used leather balsam on it as
it was bone dry, so it is now a little tacky to the touch) with
some patches missing.
A traditionally forged blade in WW2 (civilian for war) mounts /
furniture. Nice price: £? (too late, now sold). Please quote
item reference number AF04 (1054). Further / full sized pictures
available upon request.
