1 Japanese WWII Army Officer's gendai katana available. This WW2 katana has two bohi blade grooves. In the hands of a skilled Samurai or swordsman, the bohi grooves produce a terrifying whistle when the sword is wielded. This World War 2 Japanese katana would make an important acquisition for any collection.
This WW2 sword has a leather combat cover--indicating carry by an IJA Army Officer. This gendai is unsigned.
The blade measures 24 3/32" from the blade tip to the bottom of the notch in the habaki.
This sword has a straight/suguha hamon/temper line.
It's also super cool that the blade grooves follow through all the way down through the nakago--all the way to the end.
The blade has only two very tiny, nail-catcher type nicks--they are hard to see, more you can feel them if you run a fingernail along the blade edge. There are occasional minor scratches on the blade. The mounts are in nice condition. Just the leather combat cover has wear.
