    Sorry, even though you have some very high-resolution photos, I cannot make out the kanji. Perhaps the Tokyo Kokura stamp:


    The one I can clearly make out is in photo#1, which is a wide 5-pointed star.

    Frankly I can't see them well enough to offer an opinion but will remind you that several maker and arsenal marks are shown in the pinned Type 95 NCO thread above and could perhaps be of assistance when your sword is viewed/compared in hand.

    Regards,

    Hello Guy ... you sharp eyed youngster ... as mentioned above I can't really see it but will comment that the Tokyo Arsenal mark is a five pointed star. It's shown in the pinned thread I mentioned earlier.

    Hi Stu,

    Thanks for the tip. The star (double-stamped) on the OP's sword looks like the broad-base Tokyo star but without the circles in the center.

    Stu and Guy thank you for all of your insite when it comes to any Japanese items. The blade is a Nagoya blade. Would the hilt come from a different arsenal? And why so many stamps, are they different inspectors? Marty

    First stamp from left , looks like the one unidentified in the book military swords 1868-1945 fig. 62 xxxii and next is NA ,and the single is factory stamp from Chuo Kogyo Co. From 1936-45.

    Inspection and acceptances stamps on kabutogane is not common.

    Thank you for your vast knowledge. Why do or did they stamp the kabutogane if it is not a common practice? I have not seen any others on the internet. Marty
