WWII issue. Painted cast hilt with a top latch to the scabbard. Blade oval iron tsuba. 26 ½” blade serial numbered at the forte. Blade excellent in original polish. Khaki green scabbard, unnumbered as made. Hilt and scabbard with virtually all original finish. Just wear to the high points of the “lace” on the hilt. Good exceptionally clean example of this iconic weapon.
