Help with a WW2 Sword

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

My great Grandad brought back a sword when he was a prisoner of war during ww2 and it has been in my family ever since. We were all wondering what the translation was on the handle and wondered of anyone can help. 

 

Apologies, I know nothing about the topic.

Hi Mike,

Nice sword. Signed UNRYUSHI MINAMOTO MASATOMO.

In fact, it hasn't changed since you last asked on June 15. 2018 (Ww2 Sword- Need help by Psychomantis95).

I'd look up the answers...especially from Stephen post #5.

 

That's about all I have.

Regards,

Yeah funny how inscriptions in metal do that isn't it? - stay the same. 

 

I appreciated the help then as well but as I said, I don't know anything on the topic and was hoping to find out a little more, like when it was made for example because unfortunately I can't find out a lot using that name.

Hi Michael,

 

try to search with “雲竜子” (unryushi) for the time being...

“源” (Minamoto) should  be clear, as the smith’s name “正儔” (Masatomo).
