Gunto koshirae with tsunagi?


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

This just popped up on my local Craigslist—never seen gunto mounts with a tsunagi and I wonder where the blade is living now?

Anyway, the leather looks good to me but I am very ignorant of all things gunto. Is this a Type 98? Is it an example worthy of scooping up ($200), or would you all give it a pass?

I’ve been looking for similar examples online, but have had a hard time finding gunto koshirae that doesn’t include a blade as well...

Thank you!

 Gunto mounts with a tsunagi turn up all the time on Ebay. If the blade is non traditional it has to be destroyed, so the mounts are left behind. In the other case, the blade is traditional and now lives in a shirasaya.
