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


This 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 photo 10 above from the Japanese Sword Index online site.  Also, photo 12 above is from Jim Dawson's book Swords of Imperial Japan 1868-1945--Cyclopedia Edition.


All military fittings are of excellent quality.  The blade measures 25 9/16" (64.9 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.  

This sword has a beautiful temper line.

This Special Order Japanese WW2 Samurai Army Officer's sword is in excellent condition.  There is an occasional small nick in the blade edge.  There is occasional minor, light pitting on the blade (the camera's flash makes the pitting look pronounced, which it isn't--the flash brings out the hamon).  The pitting is slight--so a polish (if wanted) will easily take care of the slight pitting.  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.  

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