Nice Japanese Army Officer Sword Wwii
This is a good example of a Japanese Officer Sword mounted with an old Wakizashi blade that dates from the Shinto Era and was most likely carried by a Pilot or possibly a Tank Commander during the War. The old blade wears a cutting edge of 18 7/8 inches in length and remains in good condition boasting a beautiful wavy temper line that extends to the tip on either side and has only a few minor forging flaws. The tang has three holes and is unsigned. The hilt is nicely fitted with lovely fittings which includes a pair of bow quiver menuki. The leather combat covered scabbard is scuffed but does remain in good serviceable condition. Overall measuring 31 3/4 inches in length. Be sure to add me to your favorites list.
