The sword represents the rare opportunity to own a historical katana from the Japanese Arsenal. , the first model of sword and koshirae for officers of the Japanese army, high-quality materials in its first models in 1933. The nakago also does not have a blacksmith's signature (MUNEI) and is mounted on Gunto racks of military order. The blade and the supports are in very good condition. The sword with a blade of (58 cm). It is also a large, thick and powerful sword, with a thickness around the world of 1 cm. The weight of the blade is almost 1.6 kg (2.6 pounds). The sword is well constructed and shows an itame fairy mixing with a tight ko-mokume fairy. The hamon is a bizen-style choji midare based on suguha. The hamon is present throughout the leaf through the kissaki, where it ends in a thick boshi midare. There are many activities like yubashiri, ashi, me and an utsuri in and all over the hamon.
