Product Description

A pre-WWII Japanese Gendaito Katana Civilian Sword in good condition.

The sword blade and the iron Tsuba are probably older, possibly 19th century, but the furniture is more modern. The blade is nice and bright, with a clear hamon temper line between the hardened steel of the edge and the more elastic steel of the body of the sword. The tang of the blade is unsigned with one mekugi ana hole for the retaining pin (mekugi). The civilian fittings are excellent. The copper habaki is plain. The Tsuba is an unadorned iron disc, with small copper studs to fit the tang snuggly. The handle is made of the traditional ray skin over wood, which is bound with flat silk cord. The cord binds the 2 Menuki family symbols to the grip. There are a few spacers, so that the tang fits tightly. The Saya scabbard is made of a lacquered wood with a metal chape and collar.

Condition is good, although the blade edge has had a small chip (see photo). The tsuka wrap is in good condition.
