JOSHU Ju IMAI KANETSUGU SAKU Gendaito WWII Japanese Army Officer’s sword

JOSHU Ju IMAI KANETSUGU SAKU Gendaito WWII Japanese Army Officer's sword…A very well made blade with a brilliant choji hamon and very tight well defined hada. The blade has some old dried grease and had not been cleaned when the photos were taken. A much better quality blade than commonly seen.

“His real name is Imai Kenzaburo. Kanetsugu began his training as a student of Kiribuchi Kanetomo, but later studied under Kasama Shigetsugu. He used the Go (professional name) of Ryuminsai. During WW2 he served as a Rikugun Jumei Tosho. Kanetsugu died on February 6th, 1971, at the age of 77.”
