Lot 121 Japanese Samurai Sword. This sword was brought back as a war trophy for WWII by a personal friend of mine who pulled it out of the closet and asked me to auction it for him.

The sword itself is hand forged, has a nice temper line, and running a light down the length of the blade there are no major fold marks detectable. It is an Imperial Navy sword with the appropriate markings, and produced very early in WWII. Please see photos for more details. (The metal piece that butts up against the tsuba was not removed, so we do not have info on ordnance marks that might be under that). The sword has been taken care of over the years and not abused.
