This is not only a historical artifact per say, but it is also a very well executed piece of Traditional Japanese Art of high aesthetic merit. We have a circa 1940 made Japanese Army Officers Shin Gunto Sword, This sword was hand made in the traditional fashion by the very famous Master Smith Yasuhiro of the Nihonto Taren Kai and was head smith at the Okura Tanrenjo, who also signed under the name Kunimori. He was a smith for a time at the Yasakuni Shrine and was rated 1.8 million Yen, who made high grade gendaito. These swords are all made to military specifications with the standard showa era straight temper line, however this believe the high degree of technical merit and superiority of his blades which show a lot of activity in the temper line. Overall this is a premier example of Japanese WW2 Military Sword, as nice as one could expect without paying into the tens of thousands. .
