Gunto identification help


Recommended Posts

It is a late war NCO sword, from what I can tell, Pattern 6 wooden handle with wooden scabbard. Serial numbers start at the 300k mark for these. They are not very common and desirable for collectors of Type 95 swords. 

Please post some clearer photos here,

you will find more info in other threads on this forum and also over at the warrelics forum.

I've cropped and enhanced your shots a little.  Still would be great to see some clear photos when you get a chance, especially the serial number.

You can read about these on the following sites:
