Beautiful Japanese WWII high officer navy Sword made by Ishido Teruhide 1943


Japanese WWII navy sword made by Ishido Teruhide.
Ishido Teruhide (1900~1982) was the 10th and last generation of the prestigious Ishido Korekazu line of swordsmiths in Edo/Musashi Province (Tokyo).
He was the descendant of the infamous Musashi Daijo Fujiwara Korekazu.
During WWII, he produced many swords for high-ranking military officers and also made blades for civilians.
Ishido Teruhide was ranked Betseki in the 1943 swordsmith rankings by the Nihon Token Tanrenjo and the Nihon Token Shinbunshi.
As in all Ishido swords the construction is sublime.
Teruhide Ishido is a swordsmith who inherits the name of Koichi Musashi, a master craftsman from the Edo period.
It is blessed with a fine ko-itame jihada and muji-hada with a subtle suguha hamon mixed with small meandering waves (ko-midare).
Blade is housed in its original WWII Japanese Navy Officer Kai-Gunto Koshirae that includes the traditional brown Navy tassel and the matching serial number 1 on all fittings.
This blade would be outstanding in a fresh new polish with the original koshirea.
