Description Item Specs
This is almost an exact replica of the Type 98 Katana carried by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. Before World War II all of the swords carried by the Imperial Japanese Army were equipped with two carrying rings. On the advice of a renown swordsman the swords were given one ring. This allowed the sword to be carried much more easily and drawn more effectively. The Type 98 sword was one of the only swords used in combat during World War II.
  • Attributes of the Weapon:
  • Blade: The blade has been handmade with high carbon steel and features a clayed Midare hamon. It has been sharpened. It also features a chu kissaki and medium sori, giving the sword a very good balance.
  • Saya: The scabbard is hard wood with an olive green high gloss finish and a brass Koiguchi (scabbard throat). The pommel is a cut out design with Ume blossoms in antiqued steel. A steel fitting has replaced the sageo of the traditional katana. Consistent with World War II katanas there is only a single carrying ring made of steel. It als features a leather saya cover, consistent with the World War II Gunto.
  • Tsuba: The habaki is a two piece antiqued brass construction. The Tsuba is an almost exact replica of the Type 98 Officers sword used in World War II. There are four Ume blossoms on each corner of the guard, one of the beloved flowers of Japan. The guard has been given an antique finish.
  • Tsuka: The Fuchi is decorated with more ume blossoms in relief. The Tsuka is constructed of hard wood over the tang of the blade with army colored itomaki and authentic samegawa. Two bamboo mekugi secures the tang to the Tsuka. A brass menuki is found on each side of the handle. The Kashira is cut to match the pommel with an eye hole cut out and steel ring.
  • Note: Specs will vary slightly from sword to sword.
