This sword was made by Morita Kaneshige.  Kaneshige won the highest award in a national blade Kyoshinkai (competitive competition) in 1939.  

 

The saya is very desirable--it is a rare rayskin Army saya.  

The blade measures 25 5/8" (65.1 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine.  This sword has a beautiful wavy temper line/hamon.  This sword has a fine clasped hands sarute.  

All fittings have the matching assembly number '0307'.  

$3500 obo
