Ww2 imperial Japanese military sword. One month is required to obtain an export license in Japan. Thank you for your interest.
This listing is for a WWII era Japanese Navy sword made of stainless steel with an anchor engraved on the stem. This is a former Imperial Navy stainless steel sword with registration certificate attached, which was recently acquired from an old family member. The Navy was particularly concerned with researching steel materials for swords to prevent rusting due to the sea breeze, and developed stainless steel (stainless steel), which was resistant to the sea breeze and rusting, for use in naval swords. Unfortunately, many of the naval swords were sunk deep into the ocean floor with the naval officers and warships at the end of the last World War, so few of them exist today. However, this item comes with a registration certificate and is a very rare military sword made of stainless steel.
It was acquired from an old family member. The blade has a broad straight edge with a relatively clear appearance. There are many scuffs around the three-sided blade, which may be the result of use at the time. The cap is also flawed, but there are no blade cuts or spills.
On the relatively long stem, there is an inspection mark of an anchor in a circle, which is faintly stamped. According to some documents, the anchor mark was made at the Toyokawa Naval Arsenal. The sword is not inscribed, and the serial number of the sword, "790", is written on the stem with a pen of the time. The stem end has been cut into a unique shape, and there are several "kegaki" lines cut into the stem in what appears to be the number "790". There are also similar lines cut into the habaki.
The sword has been stored in a warehouse in a naval sword arrangement, but it remains relatively clean. The wooden scabbard is coated with black Urushi lacquer, and although there are some use marks from the time, it is in very good condition. The gilding on the helmet and the edge of the handle is still in its original condition without any peeling, which is very valuable.The sword has the characteristic rounded sword mount and 6 kiribane (cut feathers) on the top and bottom including the kairiha (important feathers). The sword guard and kiribane are numbered "790" as a serial number. The same number "790" is also written in red pen on the inside of the scabbard. The threads of the handle have no loose threads, and the coloring of the sword is the same as it was at the time of its creation. A good condition samurai sword cord is attached to the end of the round cord saruto.
The sword has been handed down from an old family member and has not been altered in any way. Navy swords made of rustproof steel with a certificate of registration are very rare and rarely found in the market. This is a very rare and valuable gem to be preserved for your collection or historical reference.If the pictures and descriptions are not sufficient, please feel free to ask questions from the question box.
