    I believe this to be a good Nagoya IJA type 95 sword. This is a late war with the side release and is a matching number scabbard.

    Thanks for the comments Marty. I think the camera angle may exagerate the tip damage. Overall it is a nice sword but probably not as good of quality build as the Tokyo arsenal swords I have IMHO.

    Max, still another nice sword for your collection and again great photography. This collecting thing can get out of hand.....nah....you can't ever collect to much. Marty

    An authentic example of a less often found version that will be a nice addition to your collection although I don't categorize them as "late war". I think of the wooden tsuka versions as the late war types.

    I agree Max although I think it's a reflection of the time line rather than the maker. I believe these side latch versions were all made by Seki Sword Co. and distributed through Nagoya Arsenal. I suspect that had examples of the same type been made by others and put out through Tokyo First Arsenal they would have been of the same quality.

    Still a very serviceable weapon and not something that I'd lack confidence in if I were depending upon it to save my hide.

    Any fuchi stampings visible Max? I know they are not present on all examples but some do have them to one degree or another. Here are the ones Seki-Nagoya-Nagoya on mine.

    Stu,

    Thank you for your input, it is appreciated. Even using a jewlers loop I cannot detect any stampings on the fuchi.

    Looks good.
    Had once the sidelock version without stamps on fuchi too.

    A good example of the later produced blade.
