    ~ WW2 Era Militarised 19th Century Civilian Katana ~


    Here we have a very unique item, a Katana with a civilian blade and civilian scabbard that has been wrapped in the military fashion without being fully converted, what we can assume from this is that this is a late war measure when there was neither the time nor the money to spare militarising this sword, in its way it is a different kind of ‘desperation sword’ to the ones we usually see.

    The sword is mounted with a white shagreen, a black fabric wrap with its civilian menuki that appears to depict a bird, the tsuba is of plain iron and the blade steel with a faint impression where the hamon used to be before polishing.

    Overall a strange combination with a nice history to it and a blade that can be dated by the mokers signature on the tang.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade is 27.5 inches (70 cm) long.

    The sword is 37 inches (90 cm) long.

    The sword weighs 1.25 Kg.

    ~Condition ~

    The sword is in a fair condition for its age and use.

    There has been some cracking and loss of shagreen.

    The blade is showing some patina.

    The retaining strap on the scabbards leather lining has snapped.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be inspected in our shop.
