SWORD #245-59 - Kunihisa

This sword has a two character signature signed Kunihisa and it has a date carved on opposite side of tang as follows - the first month of Showa in the eighteenth year 1943. It is a hand forged blade which I highly recommend for the military collector. 

This is a military officer's Gunto with average width and length at 66.5cm. It has Muji-Hada and Gunome-Midare Hamon. It has Nie Deki and Maru Bochi all in bright sparkling Martensite crystals.

The Koshirae of this Shin-Gunto appears to be a civilian type minus the leather cover commissioned for military use.

This sword is in excellent condition.

Price is $3,500.00 plus shipping
