Made during WWII this Japanese Army Officers Sword is priced to sell. The blade is well signed "Bizen MasaMitsu" with a "Seki" stamp and was hand forged and clay tempered during the war period. The mounts are type 98 Army Fittings with the handle binding (tsuka Ito) fully intact and with good patination, and saya sporting the leather field cover. The blade is in poor polish with the hamon barely visible in places. The tip is badly damaged with damaged to the edge and the sword is priced accordingly. Would be a great way of getting into WWII memorabilia without the hefty price tag these type of swords have these days.
Blade length : 64.5cm
Overall Length : 92.5cm
