  1. I will advertise this sword once again, For sale is a wonderful Gunto mounted mid Edo period blade. The mounts are good quality early Type 98 Shin-Gunto mounts with a leather covered saya. The blue and brown company officers Knot is in unissued mint condition and the koshirae is in excellent condition. The blade itself is O-Suriage with a square cut kiri nakago-jiri. The overall look of the sword and the typical hamon point very strongly to the Edo Ishido School from the 17th or early 18th century. Hamon- Flamboyant choji midare in the style of later Ichimonji work. The hamon is nioi based with some ko-nie. The combination of Ichimonji style hamon and shape suggest Edo Ishido as a possible attribution. The blade itself is in good clean condition which is uncommon for a Gunto. There are two small bits of wear, 4mm and 5mm and the slightest indent to the cutting edge (pictured). Description: Shinogi-zukuri, ioiri-mune, tori-zori. chu-kissaki. Nagasa 63.3cm Motohaba 2.9cm Sakihaba 2.0cm Sori 1.9cm Kasane 0.65cm. Nakago O-Suriage Mumei 17.8cm. £1800 including postage within the UK Also comes with sword bag and stand.

  10. Perhaps every collector dreams of finding a Shin-Gunto sword with an old blade. This is such a sword. The mounts are good quality Shin-Gunto mounts with a leather covered saya. The blue and brown field officers Knot is in unissued mint condition and the remainder of the koshirae is in excellent condition (also has the so called cat scratch habaki). The blade itself is O-Suriage with a square cut kiri nakago-jiri. The overall look of the sword and the typical hamon point very strongly to the Edo Ishido School from the 17th or early 18th century. I have owned this sword for the past 3 or so years and am selling to fund another project. A beautiful sword for the Gunto collector, Hinomaru Yosegaki flag pictured also available. Details: The blade itself is in good clean condition which is uncommon for a Gunto. There are two small bits of wear, 4mm and 5mm (see picture) and the slightest indent to the cutting edge. Shinogi-zukuri, ioiri-mune, tori-zori. chu-kissaki. Nagasa 63.3cm Motohaba 2.9cm Sakihaba 2.0cm Sori 1.9cm Kasane 0.65cm. Nakago O-Suriage Mumei 17.8cm Jigane: Tight itame but difficult to see due to age of current polish Hamon- Flamboyant choji midare in the style of later Ichimonji work. The hamon is nioi based with some ko-nie. The combination of Ichimonji style hamon and shape suggest Edo Ishido as a possible attribution. £2250 includes tracked postage within the UK and a donation to the board.
