Item Description:I am pleased to offer this original hand-made heirloom Japanese armyofficers Samurai sword from World War 2. The blade represents the opportunityto own a historic Shinto katana bythe well-known swordsmith Hoshu Yukinagain high end Kai Gunto mounts. The blade and the mountings are in Excellent condition. It is ahealthy and long sword with a blade length of 28.5 inches (72cm). It shows awell-grained and tight ko-itame hada.The hamon is a chu-suguha that ispresent the length of the blade through the kissaki where it ends in a maru boshi. The hamon is similar to theold Kamakura-era Aoe school with atight nioi guchi and ko-gunome, ko-ashi, and yo in andalong the hamon. It is a highly refined hamon.

The tang is signed HoshuTakada Ju Fujiwara Yukinaga. The tang is ubu, or unshortened. HoshuYukinaga was a swordsmith working in the mid-1600’s in Bungo province.Swords from Bungo were known as fighting swords for their prowess in combat.This sword looks to fit that description and based on the age would becharacterized as Shinto. It is avery healthy sword with a strong shape and good length. Probably it is one ofHoshu Yukinaga’s better swords and worthy of a restoration.

The mountings are naval version Kai Gunto and are in Excellent condition. The tsuka issilk-cord wrapped with cherry blossom menuki. The wrapping is tight with littleto no fraying. There is a type of tassel attached to the sarute at the end ofthe tsuka. The tsuba is solid black with a full set of eight accompanying metalseppa. The saya (scabbard) is rayskin and in excellent condition. It shows a few small scattered spots ofmissing finish and light cracking, retaining roughly 92-96% original finish. The blade is in Excellent condition. There are a few small micro nicks, somescattered small spots of rust, and a few scratches along the blades length. Thetip has been knocked off by 1-2mm. The blade would be an excellent candidatefor restoration. There are no major flaws like hagire.

Given the high-qualitycraftsmanship, reputation of the swordsmith, and rarity of an older Shinto innaval mounts, I think this piece would be an outstanding addition for acollector of WW2 militaria or Japanese swords.
