Rare WWII Swordsmith Masterpiece

Introducing the Raikou Select Ittosei Yasutsuna Katana: A Rare WWII Swordsmith Masterpiece. This authentic Japanese sword was crafted by Ittosei Yasutsuna, a renowned swordsmith from Seki City, Gifu Prefecture, active during World War II. With no post-war examples found, this katana represents a unique and valuable addition to your collection.

Preserved in a Type 98 Army standard military scabbard from 1938, the sword's iron scabbard features a faint dent near the kojiri (the small metal fitting placed at the end of a scabbard). Although the sword knot is missing, the overall condition of this katana is impressive. Measuring 62.0 cm in length with a 1.5 cm curvature, this exquisite piece showcases the timeless elegance of Japanese craftsmanship.

*Each katana sold on our site is one of a kind. Prior to fulfilling your order we will personally reach out to confirm your details and information.

Each Japanese sword is registered under the Agency for Cultural Affairs in Japan. Upon transfer of ownership, such as through a purchase on our site, a new registration paper must be issued for its owner to legally possess it. This registration paper serves to authenticate the origins of the blade.

To legally export a sword such as this from Japan to other countries, we will have to apply for a transfer of ownership permit from the Agency for Cultural Affairs and return the original registration paper to Cultural Affairs. This process normally takes 4 weeks. And so please be aware that it may take 1-1.5 months before you may receive your blade.
