WW2 Type 95 Imperial Japanese NCO's Shin
In good condition, a guaranteed authentic early WW2 Type 95 Imperial
Japanese NCO's Shin Gunto, Matching Serial No's.
Serial number 30660 to the blade and scabbard. We have great experience
in these swords and guarantee this one is 100% authentic, not one
of the many reproductions be passed off as such.
The 26 1/4 inch (cutting edge) blade is in good condition though
with some small nicks, abrasions, etc. and firm in the hilt. The
hilt with wear (original paint loss) as to be expected from a sword
that likely saw use in battle conditions. The saya / scabbard is
good but most of the war time paint has come and there is some rust
/ wear, but not too much. The sword sheathes and draws well, the
locking pin mechanism works fine.
A good honest early Type 95 WW2 example with matching serial numbers.
Very good value, £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item
reference number AF05 (1053). Further / full sized pictures available
