Type 98 Gunto Mounted Edo Blade

Recommended Posts

For sale is a wonderful Gunto mounted mid Edo period blade.The mounts are good quality Type 98 Shin-Gunto mounts with a leather covered saya. The blue and brown field 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).

Very nice package Adam, however Blue/Brown is Company Officer rank, not Field Officer, which is Red/Brown.

Yes you are right, my mistake. A company grade officers knot.
