WW2 period made blade with star stamp on its tang.
A star stamp sword is made by Military strictly selected and approved smith using tamahagane and forged using the traditional method.
Most of the other stamps are arsenal stamps and are not traditionally forged. Most are cast out from one piece anti rust steel or using railway steel.
This gendai blade has a length of 65.5cm with beautiful subtle hamon with lots of activities running along its cutting edge.
The samurai koshirae as depicted in post photo is too mild and I feel the black original type 3 makes the sword looks better and fierce. The saya is made of wood with double lock feature.
