Here we have a honest example of what is becoming a hard find. This is a Nagoya sword produced under Kokra administration. I do like these as they are unique and always desired by experienced collectors. The 26 1/4" inch machine made blade is in fine shape, As with all Nagoya Arsenal blades the numbers are read with the cutting edge up. rating Exc+ with some age. The fit is nice and tight and the tip is perfect. The scabbard has period green paint. It does have several wear spots / loss of paint throughout yet it continues to remain dent free. The throat is stamped 115863 matching the blade. As with all known examples of the Nagoya sword the scabbard throat retention screw is to the reverse. The tsuba is a steel construction with a hole being utilized by the release mechanism. The cast grip is painted showing honest wear and I seen no evidence the sword has been disassembled. As with all the Nagoya grips exhibit a different "wrap pattern". Look at how far forward the meuki to the obverse.
