Gunto military swords for collectors

Gunto are Japanese swords created since the beginning of the 20th century. This sword, as large as a Wakisashi, were produced in large numbers. They were used only by military because a Japanese law in 1876 forbade the usage of swords to civilians, it is after that law that samurai joined the army. During WW1 and WW2, most japanese militaries wore a gunto with which they were forced to fight even if the enemies were more numerous. The famous kamikaze pilots were flying with a gunto on board even during their last suicide mission. You can find several authentic gunto swords here. Some WW2 Japanese swords have been used to commit the famous seppuku: the equivalent of hara-kiri suicide for Japanese soldiers.
