1 rare South Manchuria Railroad Company World War II Japanese Samurai Officer's sword. 

 

The nakago/tang is marked with the South Manchurian Railroad Company symbol.  The reverse side is dated Spring, 1939.  

 

The blade measures 26 5/16" (66.8 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine.  This sword has a thick pierced tsuba. 

 

These swords were the forerunner to the Koa Isshin Mantetsu.

 

This sword has a straight temper line.

 

The nakago's mune/spine is stamped 'N574".  The bottom edge of the habaki is stamped with the same matching number 'N574'.

 

 

CONDITION:

The blade is in full polish.  The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy.  This sword is guaranteed against fatal flaws. 

The saya finish is excellent with only an occasional lacquer chip.  The locking mechanism works perfectly.  This Manchurian Railway sword has its original silk tsuka wrap.

Hi Trystan.  Yes, it is the same one.  The collector that I sold this sword to sold it back to me about 6 months later.  He found something else to buy, his wife found out, who knows?  This isn't the first sword or knife that I have bought and sold, and then bought and sold again. 

 

Great piece.  In polish.  Hard-to-find.
