NCO Gunto

Japanese ww2 sword of the Non-commissioned officers.

All Japanese officers in 20th century wartime Japan were required to wear a sword as a badge of rank.

These mass-produced military Shin Gunto swords substituted the complex hilt construction of traditional blades with an aluminium-cast painted false Tsuka-Ito lacing.

The blades were stamped with factory numbers and the hilt and scabbard feature a simple locking mechanism. The blade is made from tempered high-carbon steel and the scabbard is steel with a wood-core and drab-painted exterior.

The tsuba is made of brass.
