1 very rare South Manchuria Railroad Company World War II Japanese Samurai Officer's sword.  This full polish South Manchuria Railway Company katana would make an important addition to any collection.


The nakago/tang is marked with the South Manchurian Railroad Company symbol.  The reverse side is dated Spring, 1939.  

All military fittings are of excellent quality.  The blade measures 26 5/16" (66.8 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine.  The metal saya has a fine lacquered finish.  This sword has a thick pierced tsuba.  These swords were the forerunner to the Koa Isshin Mantetsu.

This sword has a straight temper line.

The nakago's mune/spine is stamped 'N574".  The bottom edge of the habaki is stamped with the same matching number 'N574'. 

This vintage Japanese WW2 Mantetsu/Machurian Railway Samurai Army Officer's katana is in exceptional condition. 

The blade is in full polish.  The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy.  This sword is guaranteed against fatal flaws. 

The saya finish is excellent with only an occasional lacquer chip.  The locking mechanism works perfectly.  This Manchurian Railway sword has its original silk tsuka wrap.

This exceedingly rare, early Manchurian Railroad Company Army Officer's sword would make an important addition to any collection.
