WW2 Type 95 Japanese NCO's shin gunto, Kokura,
In very good condition, a WW2 Type 95 Japanese NCO's shin gunto,
Kokura arsenal stamp.
Guaranteed authentic: A WW2 Type 95 Japanese NCO's
shin gunto, Kokura stamp. Blade serial number 71855. Later replacement
saya / scabbard (serial number 136071).
The 26 1/4 inch nagasa (cutting edge section) blade is still very
sharp (period) and in very good condition with no apparent nicks,
firm in the hilt. The aluminium hilt / tsuka has most of its original
copper coloured paint and is in very good shape. The saya / scabbard
has quite a bit of its original war time khaki green camouflage
paint remaining. The sword sheathes and draws very well, and the
locking mechanism works very well.
A great example at a low price, just £700. Please quote item
reference AD64. Further / full sized images available upon request.
