Great WW2 piece.

Modern koshirae as a gift, sword in good condition.

It bears a signature (probably Munetoshi) and the Seki arsenal stamp.

The translation of the signature is quite complex due to the wear of the handle and the age of the sword.

The year is quite visible in the right light conditions. A restoration would bring shine to the blade. It should be repolished.

The hamon is notare-type with suguha finial. The Boshi is Ko Maru.

The sale of weapons to persons under the age of 18 is prohibited. By placing a bid, you declare that you are 18 years of age or older and that you have verified that you are allowed to legally buy such items in your country.

    Leider sieht das Lot nach einer Nachbildung aus China aus! Zu neu, Menukis aus Plastik und Kreuz - Schlitz-Schrauben waren in den 1940-gern wohl noch nicht zu haben
