    Hi Jacob, I don't know anything about Japanese blades, but I would really like to own an example of one someday.

    Hope you had a great birthday!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Jacob , just thought i`d show you one of my japanese shin gunto swords , this example is a lovely slender old koto period ( pre 1500 ) family blade , with an unmarked tang that has been fitted with army mounts and a nice top quality cut through tsuba . The balance feels fantastic in hand . I love this sword

    cheers Al

    Jakob-
    Congratulations on obtaining a nice example. The blade appears to be in quite good condition and without flaws. The mounting is 19th century pre Meiji period. The blade is possibly contemporary with the mounts. It is quite difficult to give an opinion on the age of a blade strictly from photographs. Certain aspects can be seen such as type and color of steel utilized. The blade was likely one of a group order from a feudal daimyo for distribution to his samurai. This would account for the lack of signature. Contract mass order pieces were not signed.
