Picked up a nice Asano Kanezane. Thought you military collectors might appreciate it.

 

Slough's has four pages on this smith. He made medium to high grade Showato and medium grade Gendaito.  This one is Showato, and by far the nicest example I have seen. Koshirae is nearly pristine as well. Missing sarute and tassel.

Nice one! It would equally sit well in the thread, "show us your high class gunto".
