1 exceptionally rare Special Order World War II Japanese Samurai Army Officer's sword available.  This Special Order gendai sword would make a rare addition to any collection.


This gendai sword was made by 23rd Generation Kanefusa.  Kanefusa made just a few Special Order swords with the kiku-sui crest horimono on the blade.  See photos above from the Japanese Sword Index online site. 


All military fittings are of excellent quality.  The blade measures 23 13/16" (60.5 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine.  The wood saya has a leather combat cover.  This sword has a fine cherry blossom sarute.  Attached to the sarute is a fine silk blue/brown company grade Officer's tassel.

This sword has an excellent 'crab-claw' temper line.

This Special Order Japanese WW2 Samurai Army Officer's sword is in excellent condition.  There is not a single nick in the blade edge.  There are occasional small areas of surface finish changes and carbon staining on the blade from age.  The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy.  This sword is guaranteed against fatal flaws.  This sword will polish beautifully if desired, but is perfectly collectible and displays beautifully right now.  The silk handle wrap and same/rayskin have moved down toward the kashira 1/8".  In the hands of an expert, it can be moved up without a re-wrap. 

This exceptionally rare, Special Order Army Officer's sword, with kiku-sui crest blade horimono, would make an important addition to any collection.
