Description
Japan - munetoshi - seki - gunto - spada - katana
Good - 1940

Great WW2 piece.

Modern koshirae as a gift, sword in good condition.

It bears a signature (probably Munetoshi) and the Seki arsenal stamp.

The translation of the signature is quite complex due to the wear of the handle and the age of the sword.

The year is quite visible in the right light conditions. A restoration would bring shine to the blade. It should be repolished.

The hamon is notare-type with suguha finial. The Boshi is Ko Maru.
