Rare complete foul weather package ww2 Japanese Imperial Army officers sword. This is a highly collectable item as it still has the rare button blade lock, and the leather cover for the handle, both of which are in very good condition. This piece is a must for any serious military collector, even we do not see these this complete (i already have one in my personal collection or I would keep this one). A big plus is the fact that the blade is a very nice traditionally made sword by Imai Kaneyoshi. The blade has a very nice sugu gunome hamon with activity. This blade will be gorgeous when polished by a professional(we can recommend a very reputable polisher for this sword). All in all a rare and nice collectable item at a fair price.
