This lot concerns an original Japanese officer’s katana from the Showa period (1925-1945). In Japan also called the 'Shin Gunto Type 98'. The blade is not shortened (Ubu Nakago). 91 cm.
This is a Shin Gunto where the numbers on the different mountings correspond to each other. So it is an original katana. Both the 'Tsuba' and the 'Seppa' are also original and are of course included.
In addition, this is a katana that must have been of an NCO (as far as my knowledge reaches), this I distract from the material and inscriptions used for the 'Tsuba'.
This katana is hand-forged and still exhibits no rust stains or other defects. However, the handle is no longer original and has been replaced. The original handle is still present and will be sent along.
