1 antique Japanese WW2 Yasukuni Shrine sword by Kagiyama Yasunori available.  Yasunori was one of the founders of the Yasukuni Shrine Forge.  This is a Special Order katana by Yasunori.  This rare Special Order Yasukuni Shrine sword would make a fine acquisition for any collection.    


This sword is of special importance.  The ura/inscription on the nakago reads ‘Commemorating the 2600th year of the founding of the Empire for the Aihara family and their succeeding generations’.  This sword was made on a 'Lucky Day in January 1940'.  


This sword is of an unusual length for Yasukuni Shrine swords.  This sword measures 27 9/16” from blade tip to the notch (mune) in the blade spine.  


A Yasukuni Shrine sword with these features is very rare among Yasukuni blades.  


The kabutogane has the mon of the Asano Samurai clan.  


The hamon is more complex than suguha—there are waved features within the hamon.  The tsuba has the harp stamp associated with Yasukuni-to.  The saya has been protected by the leather combat cover—the saya lacquer looks to be quite perfect under the cover.  

The blade is in original Japanese polish.  There are no nicks.  The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy.  The scabbard lock functions perfectly, and the silk sarute is still intact.    


This katana is an exceptional and rare Yasukuni Shrine sword.
