KUNIYASU GENDAITO IN GUNTO KOSHIRAE
Sugata: shinogi zukuri katana
This is a beautifully made and traditional gendaito by Kuniyasu. He was a rikugun jumei toshi smith and was of the mon of Yoshihara Kuniie and Kato Sadakuni. Kuniyasu won a nyusen award during the war-era Rikugun Gunto Gijutsushoureki Kai.
This sword has a very nice jigane and a notare hamon in ko-nie. It is an unusually long sword for a gendai at 68.3cm.
There is also a gunto koshirae in fantastic condition. This is a typical type 95 gunto koshirae with a leather covered saya.
