Gendaito made by Niwa Kanehisa 1943


Recommended Posts

Hello members,


I am offering a Gendaito made by Kanehisa in Shirasaya. The habaki (silver plated) and the polish are from WW2. Shirasaya was made new in 2020. The blade has a very small chip and superficial scratches. No bent, no deep rust, no fukure.

In the download section you will find from M.Cox "GIFU TOSHO LIST 1937" the most important information about Kanehisa. Let me know if you want me to upload more pics or if I forgot something.


Price: 1700€ + Shipping.
