"General's" Shin Gunto Koshirae with Tassel


Recommended Posts

From my collection is an interesting early Shin Gunto Koshirae with high quality fittings, family Mon and General tassel. Sadly there is no provenance, this was purchased from Doug at Gunto Art Swords listed as a General's Koshirae found in Japan with a different General tassel attached. The current tassel is not original to the sword but is a good match patina wise. Anyway, I have enjoyed it for awhile and it has a few rare details that are of interest to collectors like the Kabutogane which is a reused Ishikuze (drag), this feature is listed in the Fuller & Gregory book (see pic). As there is no real provenance I'm listing it as an interesting early koshirae with worn General grade tassel, the tassel has seen better days  and has some fraying but is authentic.
