    This is an excellent original WW2 Japanese Officers sword and scabbard . The sword has a fish skin handle bound with cord. It has its original 1934 pattern copper and brass fittings and floral Menuki. It has all matching assembly numbers ‘118’ to the seppa tsuba, fushi on the tsuka. The pommel has a silver family mon badge of the Azai clan (Azai Nagamasa was a Daimyo during the sengoku period. His clan were located in Northern Omi province). The lanyard ring is fitted with an original period Japanese army Officers blue and brown tasselled cord.

Many of his blades are signed as prize winning blades (see Oshigata Book Of Modern Japanese Swordsmiths 1868-1945 by Slough). The blade is 27 ¼” length (38” overall). The blade is as found and unmessed with. It has no damage and has gunome hamon. The blade has small areas of staining consistent with age and would benefit from professional cleaning.
