    ~ WW2 Japanese Officer’s Sword With Hand Made Edge ~

    The blade of this sword is a factory made one as many other swords used in the Second World War.

    Being a factory made one the blade is missing the hamon.

    The sword comes with the brown covered metal made field scabbard and its suspension ring.

    The blade is made in the ‘shinogi-kukuri’ pattern.

    Its mune (blade back) is shaped in the 'Ihori' style and its kissaki (point) is ‘o’ (long).

    The swords fittings are made of brass, steel and copper and decorated with blossom flowers.

    The habaki (blade locket/ferrule) is made of copper.

    The brass tsuba (guard) is decorated with cherry flowers.

    There are four seppa (spacers). The interior ones are made of copper and shaped as the tsuba is and the exterior ones are made brass.

    The fushi (sleeve) is made of copperbrass and decorated with an embossed cherry flowers.

    The tsuka (grip) is made of bamboo covered with white rayskin and brown woven silk. The menuki (ornaments) are in the form of three cherry flowers, the emperor’s Hirihito mark.

    The saya (scabbard) is made of metal fitted with one kurikata (knob/suspension ring) and a brown military leather cover.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 27 inches (68.5 cm) and the overall length of the sword is 37 inches (94 cm).

    The sword with scabbard length is 39 inches (99 cm). The complete weight is 1.85 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The blade has one small nick on the edge and some amount of pitting. The metalwork darkened but still looks fine. Please refer to the images.

    The woven silk is shiny from wear has is worn in some places, as seen in the pictures.

    The rayskinn is cracked in several places.

    Some of its fittings have developed oxidisation. There is no end ring.

    The leather cover of the scabbard aged, lost some sections and is unstitched towards the tip.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
