To be kept informed of St. 1 Japanese WWII Army Officer's katana available.This World War 2 Japanese katana would make an important acquisition for any collection. This WW2 sword was crried by an IJA Army Officer. There are no stamps on the nakago/tang, so this may be a gendaito (traditional water-tempered sword). The blade measures 25 3/16 from the blade tip to the bottom of the notch in the habaki. This sword has a wavy hamon/temper line. The blade has no nicks. There is pitting on the blade in a few spots--the pitting will polish out though. The hamon is easily seen when held at the right angle under light.
It was difficult to photograph though, because of the scratches on the blade from when surface rust was removed by a collector. Croix Blades buys Japanese swords! 715 5 57 168 8.
