John Lee Katana Gunto As Gunto is called the Japanese military sword. Late 19th century, the design was inspired by the French military saber. In order to bring closer the troops the spirit of the samurai code of honor (Bushido), the decision was made in 1934 for a front adjacent to the Katana appearance. The swords of common soldiers were mostly produced industrially and thus of simple Quality. By contrast, the high-ranking military swords were often stocked with traditional blades from the family heritage. The rank of an officer could be seen from the color of Sageos.
