    Default My first sword

    I finally picked up a sword after along time searching, its not the officers sword I wanted but its a great first sword.

    Its a later war Japanese Nco sword made at the Nagoya arsenal, it also has matching numbers in the blade and Saya (number 201332)

    There is very high percentage of its original paint to the Saya & Tsuka. There is also a personal initial scratched into the top portion of the saya which is either a Z or an N, maybe the original owner or a vet?

    If you want to learn a bit about them have a look at the Type 95 NCO sword thread pinned to the top of this forum.

    These Type 95 are very collectible and a great first sword as you say.

    The iron tsuba versions began to appear in mid 1941 and yours appears to be well preserved.

    Would you be able to post a photo showing the serial number relative to the cutting edge and also one of the seppa and scabbard lock lever on the front side of the tsuba?

    Thanks for those extra photos. They show that you do indeed have a Nagoya blade and also version 2 (as per Dawson) in the developmental line of the Type 95. Version 2A has a cut away front seppa. For those who might not have noted the difference I'll add a photo depicting the change.

    Regards,
    Stu
