I got a chance to see this one in mpls. It’s a really nice sword! Had it been one from the group I collect, I’d have snapped it up in an instant.

Thanks Joe!  When Chris Bowen looked at it, and pointed out the utsuri I was very surprised--because I hadn't thought to look for utsuri in a gendai.   :)

Matt i had a yoshiharu and a munemitsu you see there all what you know.

Utsuri is not seldom in Gendaitos thats my opinion. Maybe the most didn't look to a gendaito in the same way as a older nihonto.

8th Dec in Japan, is 7th Dec Hawaii.  so it was made the same day as Pearl Harbour.

UPDATED INFO ON THIS SWORD:

 

 

This sword is dated on the reverse side of the nakago Dec. 8th, 1941--the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor (Japan time--due to the Intl Date Line; so Dec. 7, 1941 in Honolulu).  

For those of you who viewed the original listing of this sword--I had originally described it as having been dedicated the day after Pearl Harbor, but I received comments from a number of WW2 enthusiasts that in Japan, due to the International Date Line, Dec. 8th is the date of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
