1 very rare 1920's through WW2 Manchukuo (Manchuria) Chinese General's Sword available. This rare sword would make an important addition to any collection.
The backstrap is decorated with the Manchurian plum blossom. The grip is tortoiseshell, which designates this sword as a Manchukuoan/Manchurian General's sword.
According to Jim Dawson's book, Swords of Imperial Japan 1868-1945--Cyclopedia Edition, the Japanese had influence in Manchuria, China, dating back to the Russo-Japanese War. Then later in 1932, the Japanese invaded Manchuria using an incident caused by the Japanese Kwantung Army as an excuse.
This sword is in excellent condition. The saya's drag fitting was removed by the Manchukuoan General. All of the wire wraps on the grip are intact still. The blade has occasional minor oxidation/patina.
