This elaborate Katana sword is original with the proper scabbard (saya). The sword was surrendered in 1945 but the sword is quite elaborate and thought to have been made prior to 1941. The sword is 39 in. overall with a 10.5 in hilt or meniki (grip). There is a push-button release that properly engages the scabbard. The wrap is of an olive colored wrap (or ito). The guard is of brass and has copper chollars. The pommel cap is of brass with a pull ring and the ray skin is very pronounced, several menuki ornaments are visible. The blade shows a very soft hamon line and the blade is sharp.
