Fine & Rare Russo-Japanese/World War II Japanese kyu-gunto sword, in excellent condition.
The blade is in very good condition and still sharp.
The same/rayskin grip is perfect, as is the wire wrapping. The guard and backstrap are in perfect condition as well.
The scabbard has 70% of its nickel-plating. The lower hanger is still present on this scabbard--most are no longer attached. The presence of a lower hanger makes this an earlier type 19 scabbard--as the lower hanger was no longer added later on in production of this scabbard. The sword slides perfectly into the scabbard. The lock and lock release function perfectly.
