From Gunto. Corroded. Interesting looking.

Hello Folks,

 

Hope everyone is well and staying safe.

 

This mei is from a 69 cm blade, sat in high end Gunto mounts, now in poor condition.

The blade appears like it might be saved, the corrosion here being the worst overall.

 

Requesting assistance or some pointers with this kanji...

 

Many, many thanks in advance.

Did you clean the nakago or just the active rust? Because it looks a bit too clean to me.

Hi, it had lots of red rust, I put a small amount of sewing machine oil on and rubbed it by hand and then dabbed the surplus off with a soft cloth.  Nothing drastic.

Could you please show us the mounts as well?

Shall do once home, might have the tsuka restored first. Thank you for your interest. The tsuba is the high end 'fat', pierced type, numbered.

So this is KUN1938 in Hawley.

 

Has anyone here handled work by this smith? Briefly described on the web as an early influence on Osaka Shinto schools.

Not adding pics presently as away from home.

 

Thanks,

Jon MB
