Hello.  My first post here on this forum.  Can anyone provide me with assistance on the translation of the inscription on this sword? I believe that it is of World War II vintage.

 

Also, any feedback as to the rarity and value of the sword?

 

Thanks!

Yes, Miyaguchi Kunimori, a very fine sword and mounts. There is a fair bit of information about this smith out there, you have a very good condition & quality Shin Gunto there.

Boogie (name?), if you go back to July 27, look for the thread on Help with ... Kunimori, you will get some good information.

Value would be 3-5K USD. 

Thank you for the feedback. I am somewhat surprised that the value would be that high, considering the straight hamon and that the steel may not be tamahagane. I will look up Kunimori on this forum.

Is it typical that there would be inscriptions on both sides of the sword tang? And can a breakdown be provided as to what each side separately says?

Thanks!

Steve,

You didn't show us a picture of the other side.  It's likely a date.  If you post a pic, we can translate that.

 

Someone should be able to give you a full translation of the mei side.  If you don't get one soon, bring it to the TRANSLATION ASSISTANCE FORUM.

Hi Bruce:

I checked with the current owner of this sword and he informed me that there are no inscriptions on the other side of the tang.
