1944M WW2 Japanese Army Officer's Shin Gunto
In very good condition, a 1944 Model WW2 Japanese Army Officer's
Shin Gunto Katana, signed Kanemuni
A showato M1944 shin gunto, dated to blade, signed "Kanemuni".
The 26 inch nagasa (cutting edge section) blade is in very good
condition, no nicks, very buffed, firm in the hilt. All the fittings
are in very good shape / condition. Saya / scabbard in good condition,
some wear. The sword sheathes and draws well. No seki or other stamps,
but we are sure this is showato (not gendaito).
A very good war time example. Just £? (too late, now sold).
Please quote item reference S23 (0606). Further / full sized images
available upon request.
