WW2 Japanese Army Officer's Katana Sword, Civilian for Military Use

Sales enquiries

With much older tsuba, the blade has a post-1941 Seki stamp and is signed signed "Hayakawa Kaneyuki saku".

The 25 inch blade is overall good (some scuffing / age / wear / small inert patina / rust spot either side) with hamon visible (some sections very good / clear, others not so). A little bit of movement by the blade in the tsuka / hilt, but not much. The kashira (pommel cap) appears to be a replacement. Overall, all good. Leather with age to saya / scabbard; period ventral repair / strengthening. Sword sheathes and draws well. One scabbard retaining popper still works.

The tsuba alone is worth quite a bit, so our total price is very good; just £800. Please quote item reference number AD18. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 0421-1m (1.946).
