    Hello Fabio,
    I think you received very good and accurate information over on WAF and some of the people that commented there will also be the ones who will comment here.
    I think you will get the same answers here.
    A couple nice examples of late war army officer shin guntos.

    Both swords are 100% genuine with factory made blades. I do not believe there has been attempt to copy these YET!

    I suspect the iron/steel mounts and subdued look put the forgers off. Brass can be cast relatively easily, steel or iron less so.
