An NCO samurai sword

Article about: This is an NCO Samurai I picked up. I'm not the biggest on these but I must admit these are a fierce looking weapon.

    Thanks. They assist me to confirm that is a 2A version with the cut away front seppa (washer/spacer) and the shape of the saya (scabbard) drag is as it should be for a Tokyo First Arsenal sword.

    The absence of stampings on the iron fuchi versions is not unusual.

    Regards,
    Stu

    Stu W. Thanks again for the response. Is there anyway to determine approximate date of production?

    I like this one!

    In hand these Gunto's are well balanced and i agree they are fierce looking blades!
    Stu helped me out with my first one also!

    Although there are a couple schools of thought on dating these swords I subscribe to the Dawson timeline. Have a look at the pinned thread and you can see where yours fits in.
