Katana officer japanese sword Kyu Gunto (旧 軍刀 WW2

Country: Japan
Type: Sword
Period: 20th - mid (WW II)
Condition: Used

This is a good example of the sword Kyu Gunto (旧 軍刀 of a high-command of Japanese naval force D-Guard, type 1933 is mounted, a blade of well tempered arsenal tamahagane and tempered steel oil, you can still see the line of the hamon on the blade, (very sharp) is 83 cm long and remains in very good original condition with only a few minor surface imperfections and a couple of small dents. the fabulous job of forging craft made us demonstrates the difference with other Kyu Guntos of the time. the beautiful handle Rayita also remains healthy and with its wrap original still firmly in place twisted wire. The wooden sheath and skin nice takes three trims and decorative protections, such saya not found in other swords so we believe it was designed as part exclusive and remains in very good condition in its condition and with smaller scales.Total measures 93 cm long is an extremely long sword for your model and very heavy about 3 kg approx.
These should be distinguished from police officer sabers which are similar to Army officer parade sabers but have a five petal cherry blossom mon. This same basic design was used by a variety of civilian agencies with different emblems on the backstrap and side panels.
The saya of the civil-type sabers were fastened to the belt with a bra of braided silk, they did not wear shackles for chains.
There were numerous civil agency swords. Some have emblems on the back strap to designate a specific civil agency. These swords are also similar to the Naval Prison Service swords. All are machine made and have chromed blades. The scabbards may be chrome or nickel plated. Some of the Naval Prison Service swords will have black leather scabbards with metal fittings.

This sword is worthy of being exhibited in a museum.
