1 desirable Koa Isshin Mantetsu WW2 Japanese Army Officer's sword available.  This Japanese Mantetsu sword would make an important addition to any collection.

This sword has exceptional early mounts.  Note the deep red color of the lined habaki.  Note too the early War red color of the fittings.  

This sword is signed 'KOA ISSHIN  MANTETSU SAKU'--meaning 'Develop Asia by One Mind   Mantetsu respectfully made this'.  The reverse side of the nakago is dated.  The spine of the nakago is also marked.  This fine sword measures 26 1/8" (66.3 cm) (measured properly from the blade tip to the notch in the blade spine). 

This World War II Japanese Mantetsu sword is in excellent condition.  The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy.  The blade edge is excellent with no nicks.  The blade has occasional staining from past oxidation that had just begun to form, and was removed.  The blade is perfectly straight.  The handle and fittings are in excellent condition.  The sword locks tightly into the saya/scabbard, and functions perfectly.
