I am trying to perform some research on Nagamitsu katanas and am asking for assistance in this endeavour. If anyone that owns a Showa Nagamitsu katana, would be so kind as to share pictures of the hamon, and nakago, focusing on signature and any stamps/katakana, I would truly appreciate it.

Have attached some photo's of my Nagamitsu...My poor photographic skills don't do the sword justice and my old camera doesn't help . The I-pad takes better ones but I don't know how to reduce them yet.....! If you want more just let me know...

The picture is made with flash. I'm sure when the pictures are made in Sunlight you will see much clearer. It's a nice sword. With a eye catching koshirae. You can be proud to have this sword.

Eric..pleasure...no problem..There are no numbers,stamps or katakana present..The nakago is nicely finished,quite tactile actually..As with many swords until you actually pick them up you cannot appreciate the skill involved in he manufacture..
Bruce..No,sword was bought as a "train wreck" and I should have taken before and after photo's...Koshirae lovely but blade was badly chipped and stained , I honestly didn't think it could have been saved but credit where it's due a skilled man resurrected it..! A few hours of uchiko and the ko-itame hada that my poor photography doesn't show will show through..!
Chris...I do like it and yes,like you, I think I have restored the sword to the level it was before it left the armoury on it's journey to be used by a proud officer in the Imperial army....Actually bought it as a comparison blade to the Emura I bought from a member of the board ( waiting for some time off to put them side by side...! )
Hamfish...Ah,ah,poor Beyoncé...I take it you mean shinogi ( I think you left your white stick in the other room) ..? No offence meant,taken or inferred..!
Good to raise a few pulses,back to the gin and tonic.

Hi Eric, attached photos of a couple of my NAGAMITSU swords. One in 98 mounts, the other in type 3. The 98 is the two character, and the Type 3 is the two character and SAKU.
An attempt at photographing the hamon on the unpolished blades also attached.

Thank you for the pics. By any chance is the picture named zzz24 the Nagamitsu Saku? Can you also provide pictures of the boshi please? Are there any katakana, numbers or arsenal stamps? Nice collection by the way, would like to see what they look like fully polished.
Thank you for the pictures. Interesting boshi, and the bottom picture shows a line of masame hada and koitame, normally hard to see hada on Nagamitsu, good shots. Are there any katakana, numbers or arsenal stamps?

Are you finding that all Nagamitsu blades are marked with a serial number? Seems like I've seen this discussed on another thread somewhere.

Not all of them have the serial number.

Hi Eric, you are correct, zzz24 is NAGAMITSU SAKU in type 3 mounts. There are no other numbers, no dates, no stamps. Picture of BOSHI attached. Remember, it is unpolished.
