Japanese Officer's Katana Sword With Early C1650 Fullered Blade With Horomono Dragon Decorated Blade Re-Hilted For WW2 Use & Scabbard. Sn 10152

This is an original Japanese Officer's sword with its scabbard. It has an early 22 inch fullered clean blade which dates to C1750-1800. The blade is beautifully marked on both sides. One side features the Horomono Dragon design and the reverse with stylised script markings. It measures 32 1/2" overall. The tang appears to have been signed but the markings have worn away. The brown binding over the fish skin handle is complete and intact and it's heavy brass tsuba, copper & brass fittings and scarab/ beetle mounts are original, correct and present (illustrated). The pommel cap is ornately decorated and the Tsuba has profuse Japanese script characters. The sword is complete with it's wood scabbard with leather cover. Price for this nicely marked sword with early blade no doubt carried by a Japanese Officer during WW2 and subsequently surrendered or captured includes UK delivery. Sn 10152
