A Shinogi zukuri Shin Gunto Katana with original mount type 98 or the 1945 mount, Signed; NAGAMITSU SAKU, in a beautiful original Koshirae. Nagamitsu and Emura were employed as superintendent/director in a Japanese prison in Okayama, where swords were forged in view of the great need during WW2, both forging many swords that are of a high quality and better than the average Shin-gunto blades. The blade is not machine made but forged in the traditional way and hardened and not shortened and therefore Ubu with original Nagasa with 65.7 cm and has 2 Mekugi ana. The polishing is very good and the Hamon and Jihada are very good to see, unfortunately there is some surface rust on the kissaki.

The striking thing is that this blade has 2 Mekugi ana which was typical for Nagamitsu blades from mid-1944 when the new simplified mounts were introduced because there was a huge deficit in Japan of precious metals. Also, 2 unlock buttons were used before the sword could be removed from the saya.

The Hamon is a Suguha Gunome and the blade has a Chu-kissaki with a standard Sori. The Koshirae is in good condition with the typical 1945 black lacquered saya.
