Fixable? No..not without a donor sword or considerable expense.
Looks cleanly done. Maybe damaged and so removed by the soldier? It's a pity, but the price will reflect that. Pity it is koshirae only.

Not fixable but the guard was notorious for breaking.

Definately needs to be put on the transplant list pending suitable donor...cost could easily exceed practical expense.  Too bad, the chasing on this one looks particularly good.

I AGREE, if you can get the part at a rational price go for it!  :thumbsup:

There are a few examples of these swords with guards removed. Pretty sure it was F&G who first make reference to one where the guard was carefully removed, though I don't recall whether a reason is given. If it has been intentionally removed or lost during war time and you care about such things, it is best to leave 'as is' .
