This is a papered sword--always nice to have a few papered swords in the collection. This sword was made by Yoshinobu between 1615 and 1624 A.D. This sword was carried by Samurai and then remounted for carry by an Army Officer during World War 2.
This sword has a silver Samurai family mon. The temper line on this sword is very beautiful.
The original Shinsa worksheet is also included with this papered sword.
