This is an extremely nice example of a Japanese Army Officer Shin Gunto Sword that dates from the World War II Era. It is mounted with a beautiful hand-forged blade that wears a cutting edge which measures 26 11/16 inches in length. The blade remains in very nice original condition with a lovely actively wavy temper line that extends to the tip on either side. The tang wears one hole and is unsigned. All the very nice fittings have also survived in beautiful, clean condition. The metal scabbard also remains in very nice in its condition with only a few light scuffs to the finish. Overall measuring 38 5/8 inches in length. (please note other items shown as props are not included in this auction) TO SEE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS PLEASE SCROLL DOWN.
