WW2 Era Japanese Junior Army Officer’s Parade Sabre With Acid Etched Yakiba ‘Tempered Edge’, Applied Family ‘Mon’ Badge With Cord, Portepee & Scabbard. Sn 12033 - 12033

An excellent Japanese Junior Army Officer’s Sword in its original scabbard. These parade sabres were made for Japanese Officers up to 1941. Japanese Officer’s would often, at additional personal cost pay to have an acid etched ‘Yakiba’ or tempered edge applied to the blade to give the effect of a hand forged ‘wave hamon’ (see Military Swords Of Japan 1868-1945 By Gregory Pages 22 & 66-67). This sword has the correct ribbed horn grip with wire binding which is tight and intact. It has its regulation knuckle guard with ornate cast decoration & the back of the grip is fitted with a family applied ‘Mon’ badge (illustrated in image 2). It has a clean, 31” fullered curved steel blade. The blade has an acid etched Yakiba which would have been commissioned by the Officer at great personal expense. The handle is fitted with original cord and portepee. It is complete with original steel scabbard with single steel hanging ring. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12033
