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.
