Japanese WW2 Wakawaka

Recommended Posts

  Gents,  Here is a decent project if you are in the market for a Japanese WW2 crewmember sized sword. Swords this size were often carried by soldiers in confined spaces such as tanks or subs or the soldier was a midget.

 

This one is a older blade, very thick and meaty. It has a nice wood grain (or mokume to those of you who only speak nihonto) to the forging. Blade is solid with not fatal flaws or nicks in the edge. Just spotting, scratches and being out of polish.   I bet it is one of the missing Tokugawa pieces from Kolby's stash.

 

You need to rewrap the handle which is quite satisfying if you have not tried it yet. It has a signed namban tsuba. Missing a few spacers, menuki and top cap.

 

Blade cutting edge is 15 inches.

Price is $725 + shipping / fees.
