**MATCHING NUMBERS, BLADE NUMBERED ON SIDE** Original, WW2 Japanese NCO's Type 95 Katana With ‘The Lijima Swords Factory’ & Kokura Arsenal Marks & Scabbard. Sn 18432 - 18432

This is an original WW2 Japanese NCO's Katana and scabbard. The sword has the typical aluminium cast handle with lanyard ring hole and fully functioning scabbard retaining clip. The handle retains traces of its original brown paint. Its early, fullered, 27 ½” blade is stamped on one side '45792' and with inspection mark (later examples were stamped on the spine). The blade has light areas of staining consistent with age. The hilt is stamped with Kokura (4 combined cannonballs) Arsenal mark and the Lijima Swords Factory roundel with crossed swords mark and inspection mark (see page 185 of Swords Of Imperial Japan by Dawson). It is complete with its original scabbard which has a single hanging ring. The scabbard has a couple of dents consistent with age and service use, but no cracks and is intact. The throat of the scabbard is stamped with matching number. This piece is clearly a bring back, surrendered or recovered from the battlefield. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18432
