Yasukuni Shrine Army Sword W/rare Rayskin Saya

Recommended Posts

This sword was made by the Yasukuni Shrine smith Kotani Yasunori.  

The saya is desirable--it is a rare Army saya with same/rayskin.  A rayskin army saya is found on 1 in 10,000 army swords--so this sword with its rayskin saya is exceedingly rare.

The blade measures 26 7/8" (68.3 cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine.



The blade has a couple of tiny nail catcher edge nicks, and barely an occasional tiny pit.  The mounts/koshirae are perfect.  


The hamon is perfect.  The boshi is perfect as well.  




$7,695 obo


Thank you.

Nice one! If I win the lottery, you will find out about it before my wife does.
