    My latest purchase, A type 98 IJA officers shin gunto with company grade officers tassel. I had to sell both my type 95 NCO guntos but it was definitely worth it.

    Blade specifications,

    Shinogi-zukuri, ioiri-mune, tori-zori, chu-kissaki
    Nagasa: 63.3cm
    Motohaba: 2.9cm
    Sakihaba: 2.0cm
    Sori: 1.9cm
    Kasane: 0.65cm
    Nakago: O-Suriage Mumei 17.8cm

    Though the Nakago is mumei (unsigned) the blade has a possible attribution to Edo ishido school (300 years old) due to the shape and choji style hamon.

    Adam that's a beauty! One day I might have something like this too, until then I'm more than happy with your Type 95 I'm glad the money went towards something as great as this.
