This could either be an officer’s private purchase example, or perhaps a private order for a yeomanry cavalry regiment. Either way, it has some interesting non-standard features, such as the side-slot for the sword knot on the guard, the broader than normal knuckleblow, the lack of ‘ears’ to the backstrap and the grip having an unusually high number of wraps of wire. The sword is overall in very nice condition, despite lacking a scabbard.
Everything is quite tight and the leather and wire of the grip are in very good condition for their years of age! The blade is also in good condition, with minimal patina for the age and everything straight and in good shape.

The basket-hilted sword is a sword type of the early modern era characterised by a basket-shaped guard that protects the hand. The basket hilt is a development of the quillons added to swords’ crossguards since the Late Middle Ages. In modern times, this variety of sword is also sometimes referred to as the broadsword.. The basket-hilted sword was generally in use as a military sword, in.
Traditionally made swords were produced during this period but, in order to supply such large numbers of swords, blacksmiths with little or no knowledge of traditional Japanese sword manufacture were recruited. In addition, supplies of the type of Japanese steel tamahagane used for sword making were limited so several other types of steel were substituted. Shortcuts in forging were also taken, such as the use of power hammers and tempering the blade in oil rather than hand forging and water tempering; these measures created swords without the usual characteristics associated with Japanese swords.
During this wartime period antique swords from older time periods were remounted for use in military mounts. Presently in Japan showato are not considered to be true Japanese swords and they can be confiscated; outside Japan they are collected as historical artifacts. Murata Tsuneyoshi — , a Japanese general who previously made guns, started making what was probably the first mass-produced substitute for traditionally made samurai swords.
To distinguish individuality, wealth or craftsmanship, many swords were produced in batches as small as 1—25 to maintain the legacy of sword culture. Styles varied greatly, with inspirations drawn from swords of early periods, familial crests, and experimental artistic forms that the Meiji Restoration period had begun to introduce.
These swords will have serial numbers on their blades and are nearly always machine made. If the sword is all original, the serial numbers on the blade, tsuba, saya and all other parts should match. During most of that period, the swords were manufactured at the Toyokawa Naval Arsenal. In response to rising nationalism within the armed forces, a new style of sword was designed for the Japanese military in
