    Another ww2 used sword

    Hi,
    thought I would share another of my ww2 used swords this one is particularly nice as it is circa 1350 it must have belonged to a high ranking officer with Samuri ancestors as I assume that it is a hand down over the generations the mon I believe is Nakano so due to the size of the sword it is a lot bigger and wider that most shingunto mounted ww2 swords it it my imo have once belonged to
    Hidemitsu Nakano who's father was a former Samuri there is a photo of him with a sword that could be it. sword is Bizen opinion on the smith is Bishu Osafune Ju Yoshikage.
    Thanks and any input is appreciated.

          Congratulations on finding such a wonderful converted naginata sword. If only it could speak!

          Regards,

          Kevin.

            Hi,
            I'm sure it has seen many battles down through the centuries until it's final surrender at the end of ww2.

                Curious as well, looks like a pretty impressive size Nagamaki naoshi. Surprised that it only has one mekugi-ana.

                  The tang was shortened. The cutting edge was moved up. So it may or may not have another ana, but we'll never know.

                    Wow, Beautiful blade. It has obviously had a good home. Everything I find lately looks like someone used it to chop firewood.

                      Hi,
                      Its obvious someone treasured this sword down through the centuries imo it stayed in the same family and at the beginning of ww2 it had its specially made fitting for it made,it is a monster of a blade I will take some better photos and a full tang close up for you, The nagasa is nearly 27in long.

                        Looking back I didn't realize that shear size of this. I'm guessing originally the naginata was at least 30" long and the nakago would have been at least 2 feet long.

                        Truly impressive.

                          I’m thinking it was made as a sword in shinogi-zukuri (think of “Kogarasu Maru” except with a normal kisaki).

                            27" cutting edge is not particularly long. Most Shin-gunto are about 26.5". Maybe the blade is extra wide and thick?

                              Hi,
                              tried to take some better photos the blade is 28in from tip to tusuba a lot deeper and thicker than my standard size ww2 Shingunto hope the photos portray it better.
