This much anticipated work addresses the large gap present in sword scholarship as related to gendai-to - modern Japanese swords of the Shinshinto, and more specifically, W.W.II era. Includes excellentoshigata and extensive documentation. Each smith is referenced to his listing in Hawley's Japanese Swordsmiths, Toko Taikan, and the Shinto volume of Nihon Toko Jiten. This high quality publication is further supported by vintage b&w photos, period advertisements and exhibition results. With very few entrants to this specific field of study, this English language work is a must for those interested in the study ofGendaito. This hardcover edition was produced in 2004.  272 pages
