I am pleased to offer this original handmade Japanese relic for senior officers of the Samurai army in the Russian-Japanese period. Shin Gunto Gendaito of World War II is mounted. The sword represents the rare opportunity to possess a historical katana of the famous blacksmith Seki Ju Kawamura Kaneri Arsenal. , dated 1926 of the 11 years of the emperor's government. The nakago also presents the signature of the smith and date and is mounted on Gunto mounts of military order. The blade and supports are in very good condition. The sword is long with a blade of (68 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 built and shows an itame fairy that mixes with a tight ko-mokume fairy. The hamon is a Bizen-style choji midare based on suguha. The hamon is present throughout the blade through the kissaki, where it ends in a thick boshi midare. There are many activities such as yubashiri, ashi, me and an utsuri in and along the hamon.

The peak is fully signed with Ju Kawamura Kaneri and is dated with Tensho Shichi Nen Hachi Gatsu Yoshi Hello, or a lucky day in the fall of 1926. Ju Kawamura Kaneri reflects a long line of blacksmiths who work in the province since ca . 1500 that are known and respected. They were known for making many swords to supply the sides in the Japanese civil wars of the 1500s. This seems to be a generation of the height of the Ju Kawamura Kaneri workforce in the mid-1500s. The full signature indicates that it belongs to their Best workmanship and a high class sword.

The assemblies are from the period -Japanese Gunto. The mounts are in perfect condition . The tsuka is shaped like a sabre and is in MINTY state and has the same gift. The saya (sheath) is plated in metal outdoors. The metal housing is in excellent condition. Given the protective cover, the skirt is expected to be in good condition, retaining approximately 95-98% of the original finish. The blade is in good condition during the elapsed time. There are no notches, little or no rust and few scratches along the blade. There are no major defects such as hagire.

Given the history, craftsmanship, signature, condition and exceptional assemblies, I think this piece would be a premium addition to a collector of military or Japanese swords from World War II, and I highly recommend it.

The sword is completed with the tassel of high-ranking official colonel and its original bag for transport and conservation.

    This is very disappointing. Looks and feels like a cheap toy and is NOT old. Communicating with the seller: not another reply was given than 'the person is not in the office'. Never buy again!!!

    Dear Gerbrand

    On July 9 I answered your message in which you indicated to solve this outside of Catawiki which did not seem right.
    A copy of the message sent to you is attached:

    I apologize for not being able to help you before, in the summer months I am full time with my work.
    Regarding your offer, I do not understand exactly what you want, the sword that you acquired in the auction corresponds to the Showa period in Japan, possibly the blade is earlier since the Nakago cut is appreciated and it was a tachi and the Koshirae clearly to have been adapted during this period, the description of the piece and the photographs specified the item in detail.
    Explain exactly your offer in order to find a favorable solution for both parties.
    Waiting for news from you.
    regards

    Jorge

    Mi è arrivato tutto in buone condizioni, tranne per il fatto che l'impugnatura si sfila dalla spada. Segnalato l'inconveniente il venditore mi ha detto che invierà la soluzione. Attendo.
