Everything on this sword is of the highest quality.  Not the least of which is the red sharkskin-covered saya.  It has the over-sized tsuba, contrasting color seppa, premium sarute, family mon, etc.  The blade is a nihonto--it is signed Kaneyoshi.

Hi Tom. Sure you are. Maybe military koshirae isn’t of interest to you as a collector—which is fine, of course. To the military sword collector, this sword is among the best of the very highest quality military mounts made. Red sharkskin saya, the best fittings, family mon, etc. At any of our U.S. sword shows, this would be the very best Army koshirae sword there—hands down. I travel and exhibit at each of them.

 

What does one pay for an Army sword with a signed nihonto blade—with premium condition—and with premium mounts?? One that is among the prettiest most of us has seen—for many military collectors, a centerpiece Army sword. (Military sword collectors, you know what I mean).

 

Thanks Tom for your question.

Absolutely gorgeous koshirae, Matt. Well priced too for a traditional blade in what appears to be top condition. If I collected officer swords, this would be an irresistible package. Good luck with the sale.

Yes, you really don't see Type 94 of this quality very often and usually they were owned by high ranking officers or wealthy individuals.
