Can't believe it. i finally got one. Its a decent sunto period sword i believe. Two minor nicks on the blade a few marks, but its over all a nice looking sword. The tang has writeing on it which i believe is the maker of the sword. Wondering if any one has info on this maker. Very psyched on this sword. Direct Veteran purchase.

Hi From Japan

Hisa Mitsu. Is that the name of the guy who made it? Do you know where it would have been made. Thanks for all your help.

K Morita and Brannow

Thank you for all your help and knowledge. This is a part of collecting i want to get into but don't know alot about it. Just want to Re cap on the info that was given to me and make sure i am on the right page.

Blade was made in Fukuoka, Kyushu Japan

The name of the sword smith was Mitsuo Koga

How would this sword have been made. Is it an oil tempered blade or would it have been traditional folded. Also can any research be done on the sword smith. Thanks for all your help.

Spencer Victory
