Koshirae: Japanese navy sword mounting.

From Aoi Art: A swordsmith was made during the war with the Navy sword mounting.
As you know, most of the Navy’s soldiers were read on the sea. Therefore, unlike Army swords, there are almost no Navy swords or Navy sword
mountings left. The Saya was made by sharkskin so the sword was kept by high-ranking Navi.
