CAS Hanwei Yasukuni Captain's Gunto
This sword replicates the Gunto of a high-ranking Japanese army officer of the Pre-WWII and WWII era. These swords were made from 1933 onward by a group of highly-skilled sword smiths at the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo and are known collectively as the Yasukuni swords. Only 8000 of these swords were made and many were destroyed, so in recent years they have become highly collectible. Hanwei is producing these very accurate replicas for collectors unable to afford or obtain originals. Hand-forged blade. New, no box.
