The Shin guntō (new military sword) was a weapon and badge of rank used by the Imperial Japanese Army between the years of 1935 and 1945. Based on the traditional katana, traditionally made swords were produced during this period, but in order to supply such large numbers of swords, blacksmiths with little or no knowledge of traditional Japanese sword manufacture were recruited. In addition, quicker methods of forging were also used, such as the use of power hammers, and quenching the blade in oil, rather than hand forging and water.
Most of these swords, both "true" and new models, were destroyed by the Allies but they can be made with the right knowledge and materials.
