    The stainless steel blades were made to use. Officers proudly carried their blades into battle and used them when and where they had the opportunity. They would kill as fast as any other sharp piece of steel. They were not just for looks.

    i fouStainless steel blade.
    A navy has much use of a stainless steel blade. The blade had the necessity for the measure against damage from salt water in a sea service. A stainless steel blade is a product made from a machine of an one-piece no forging. These blades were made from Toyokawa Naval Arsenal or Navy Kamakura Tenshōzan Workshop. Situation: There was the first - sixth charge part in the Seki Cutlery Industrial Guild those days. The sword making of the stainless steel sword was almost carried out by the swordsmith of Seki. Each swordsmith inscribed the Mei on swod-tang of the no forging, and supplied it to Navy Kamakura Tenshōzan Workshop in the state of the rude polish. The navy technical official of Navy Kamakura Tenshōzan Workshop stamped the inspection mark on the acceptable product. And the commandeered polisher gave the last polish of those blades.
    It is surmised that Toyokawa Naval Arsenal was also in the same situation.nd this abought my sword

    this goes for the army also,The army also used the stainless steel sword. Officers were afflicted the rust of a blade, and the rust by blood in the environment of an inferior front For the reason, the teachers' manual about the method of taking care of a Guntō is published by those who call a sword specialist those days. However, there is no margin of time for officers to take care of a Guntō under the combat operations which take a stand against an enemy. The feeling of the sword persons concerned behind the lines who explain the method of taking care of a Guntō by feeling of the Japanese sword for appreciation decorated in the alcove itself is only an impracticable theory after all. It was a necessary result that "the unti-rust Guntō" was required reflecting such a situation. It is proved from Mr. Naruse's work having description with "the stainless steel sword of fashion of a Kanenaga Mei" that it had spread considerably. In addition, the sword which carried out the one-piece forging of the steel not rusting, and carried out the sword making completely by the swordsmith exists

    wow. You've been busy. I can relate. FWIW, I was reading page II on that Japanese military sword gunto site:

    Military Swords of Imperial Japan (Gunto)

    Some interesting stuff on usage, maintenance, and psychology of swords in the war. Indicates that cutting test showed arsenal swords of machine make were often more practical than old swords for the business of actual. Makes the clear point its weapon first, art second, much to the chagrin of those nihonto boys.

    'Seki' is a 400 year old blade making center that still produces swords, knives and cutlery today. Although most Samurai style blades currently available are for display, there are also very fine and rare blades made in traditional ways by a very few master swordsmiths for use by masters of Japanese martial arts.
