Mei Military Katana


Recommended Posts

Hi Rick,

Yes, pretty hard to read, especially the first two kanji.

Below the seki stamp I think it says:

EnDo IchiMonJi

There was a Seki gunto kaji working in WWII with this name Endo Ichimonji. He was registered as a swordmaker at Seki on 9 Jan 1941.

Probably made showato only but I'm not sure.

Thank you very much George and Morita san, I do appreciate your help and you effort reading my post!


I have two more photo's of this blade but they are even worse then this one and the photo's are of the blade. The blade is in civilian mountings but looks to be a Showato from what I can see. I will do some research on the the name now I know what it is.


Thanks again!
