Nagasa: 67cm (26.5")

This sword was brought back by a GI from WW2.  Based on the length and shape, appears to be a very long tachi made in the 1500s in the Soshu tradition, and later cut-down.

It is mounted in a full rayskin wrapped tsuka and saya, with a mix of fittings from 70 to 150+ years.  With one leather seppa, it is likely that the tsuba and other metal pieces were damaged in the field and replaced with scavenged parts.  Fuchi appears to be the newest of the pieces,
