Item Description: I am pleased to offer this original hand-made Japanese army officers Samurai sword from World War 2. The blade represents the opportunity to own a historicKoto katana, ca. 1400-1500s, likely from the Uda School. The blade is inVery Good condition and the mountings are in Excellent condition. The sword has a blade length of 24.25 inches (62 cm). The blade features a well-graineditame hada that mixes with a running masame hada. The hamon is a well-implementedhoso suguha transitioning to midare that is present the length of the blade through the kissaki where it ends in amaru boshi. There are activities likenijuba, uchinoke, koichigaiba, and small yubashiri in and around the hamon.
The tang is mumei, or unsigned, and suriage, or shortened. Based on the shape and workmanship, the sword was likely made by a school such as theUda school which was prolific during the 1400?s and 1500?s. The Uda school was famous for supplying many swords during the Sengoku period of warring states. Their swords were renowned for their sharpness.
The mountings are Type 98 Shin Gunto and in Excellent condition. The tsuka is silk-cord wrapped with cherry blossom menuki. There is little to no fraying. The tsuba is classic WW2 with four accompanying metal seppas. The saya
scabbard) is wood with a leather weathering cover. The leather cover is supple and well-aged,retaining roughly 90-95% of original finish. The blade is in Very Good condition. There are a couple small micro nicks, some scattered small spots of rust, and some scratches along the blade?s length. There are no major flaws like hagire.
Given the age, reputation of the swordsmith, the high quality craftsmanship, and history of the sword, I think this piece would be an excellent for a collector of WW2 militaria or Japanese swords.
