  1. Mune mitsu Gendaito signed: Mishimani Mai Oite Moriya Mune Mitsu Koreo Tsukuru. Date: Showa Ju Ku Nen Roku Gatsu Hi. This blade was forged by Mune Mitsu in June of 1944 in Shimane Province. It is 65.6cm or 25 13/16” long. It is ubu with 1 hole in the military mounts. Mune Mitsu is listed in Hawley’s on page 526 (Mun 234). He was relicensed after the war in 1954. He is listed in the Nihonto Meikan on page 452. , Gendaito Meikan on page 103, and Toko Taikan on page 630. Despite some really light pitting the hamon and hada are clearly visible. $2500

      I'm not really educated on that.  I believe you have to submit the blades to Shinsa.  They used to have traveling Shinsa events, but COVID pretty much shut that down.  The really big method is to ship your blade to one of the guys in Japan and have them submit it to Shinsa over there.  But that is time consuming and expensive.


      I would ask Brian or Stephen.  They would know for sure.  There is talk of one happening in San Francisco in August:


      The guys on that discussion could likely help you too.
