1 Japanese Chosen (Korean Territory) World War 2 and earlier Mounted Police sword. This normally hard to find sword (uncommonly there are currently two available on eBay—this one and one other) would make an important addition to any collection.
This sword measures 35 7/16” overall.
The book photos above are of pages 318 & 319 of Jim Dawson’s authoritative reference Swords of Imperial Japan 1868-1945 Cyclopedia Edition.
This sword is in excellent condition. The handle wire is in perfect condition. The leather finger loop is still present after all these years. The blade is in really excellent condition with only the expected darkening with age. The scabbard locking mechanism works perfectly.
