I have 3 swords FS/FT. They are cross posted and on eBay. 10% of sale to NMB. I would much rather donate 10% to NMB than pay the alternative 10%.

1) Muto Mitsuhiro in Type 97 mounts. $2995 shipped.
2) Muto Hidehiro in Type 44 mounts. $2195 shipped.
3) (Ichihara) Nagamitsu in Type 98 mounts $2195 shipped.

I recently came across the Muto swords and have decided to sell them as well as an extra Nagamitsu I have to fund some restoration work as well as new acquisitions.

7 day inspection period and return for any reason.

I also have decided to sell/trade my US fighting knife collection to move solely to Japanese swords. I have 1) Minty OSS Stiletto, 2) WWII named Randall 1-8 (no scabbard), 3) 3 or 4 1968 Gerber Mk2s, 4) 1967 Gerber Mk2. I believe that's all that's left anymore.

Good luck on your sale. I've always been quite impressed with the Muto's work.

Thanks, Joe! I meant to add - feel free to make a cash or trade offer.

Nagasa is 26 1/16"

Slight bend in blade

Maybe a few small nail hangers in kissaki too small to measure

Couple of stains and scratches

initials in habaki & scabbard

Confetti type naval scabbard

All fittings have matching numbers

Tip is scratched up, it appears that the tip could be worked on itself and look fine

Some scratches and stains

Dated 2602 = 1942 => very early blade in Type 3 fittings
