Sales enquiries

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. Box 0564-1m (2.302).
