1 antique World War II Japanese Samurai Army Officer's shin-gunto sword available.  A WW2 Japanese Army Officer's katana would make an important addition to any collection.


The nakago/tang is signed Masakiyo.  This sword is a star-stamped gendai.  Masakiyo was appointed the Head Swordsmith for the Izumo Seiko (Izumo Steel Works Company) in 1942.  Masakiyo was a Rikugen Jumei Tosho smith.  


The blade measures 25 7/8" (65.8 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine.  


This sword has a fine water-tempered hamon/temper line.


This WW2 katana has a Silver family mon on the kabutogane (see photos).  These Silver mon designate which Samurai clan the officer was from.  The mon is 'crossed feathers'.  

This sword is in mint condition.  The blade is in 100% polish, and the koshirae is in extraordinary condition.


The temper line and boshi are perfectly healthy.  This sword is guaranteed against fatal flaws.
