I strongly believe I have a Kyu Gunto blade that is without any of it's accompanying parts: tsuka, saya, habaki. I already know the last one will be hardest to replace. But as many were machine made, its worth a shot to see if I can obtain the habaki as well. The blade matches the profile type of a kyu gunto in all aspects that I can observe (shape, length, construction, etc.)
I would be very pleased if someone has one to put up for sale! I would really love to get this blade back in some proper wartime mounts. Right now, its just sitting in a display case with little else to make it look proper.
Thanks for the help!
I can post pictures if requested. It does have a clear straight (I believe that's suguha) style hamon with a slight wave to it.
