    ~ Late WW2 Rare Stainless Katana ~


    Here we have a near mint WW2 period Katana. This is an incredibly interesting piece I would say was made in the last few months of WW2 due to certain oddities regarding its fittings.

    The sword whilst an army gunto has a rare stainless blade, these were mainly for naval units but also for marine landing groups. This would make sense as in the last months of the war the Japanese government were calling out for all blades as they needed materials for the war effort so not too odd that a naval related blade would end up in this set of fittings.

    The sword is constructed of a beautifully machined blade with a hamon (possibly this sword being oil quenched), a wood and leather sheath, a cord wrapped shagreen grip with gunmetal fittings.

    Overall this is an incredibly clean and interesting example of a last ditch weapon and would look brilliant in any collection.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade is 28 inches (71 cm) long.

    The sword is 38 inches (96.5 cm) long.

    The sword weighs 1.16Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in excellent condition for its age and what it is with some minor scuffs to the leather and the catch has snapped.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £20, international at cost and it can be viewed in our shop....Read full description
