|International||$75.00 ($50.00 as additional item)|
This is a stunning Japanese Navy Officer's sword which was definitely a higher-quality option for a higher ranking (or wealthy) officer. Condition is 99% mint. I rate nothing at 100%, so this is as good as it gets. All exterior gold fittings show bright mercury gild gold finish at 100%. Shark Skin covered scabbard is perfect, with a very nice join seam on the reverse. Grip is tight and unmessed with. Tassle is a later war tassel with no distinguishing coloration. Blade shows an amazing water-temper line, and blade is razor sharp with no flaws. Tang is signed WWII Era Noshu Ju Katetoshi Saku. Price is high, but the condition is without equal.
