1 traditionally made water-tempered Japanese WW2 gendai sword available. This WW2 IJA Army Officer katana would make an important addition to any collection.

This sword was made by Tenryoshi Yoshitaka. This sword has a wonderful and beautiful hada. The hamon/temper line is suguha. The blade's cutting edge/nagasa measures 26 1/4" (66.3 cm).
This sword's mounts are of exceptional quality and condition.
The blade is perfectly straight. The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy. There are no nicks in the cutting edge. The blade has only occasional slight discoloration. The mounts are perfect.
