Thought you all would like to see this Japanese Shin Gunto and its bullet impact. Given to me by the widow of a WWII Pacific Theater Army Vet. Oral history is that he picked it up on one of the Pacific islands. Wife said he never talked much about what happened. A 30-06 bullet fits nicely. The sword can be removed from the scabbard with a bit of difficulty and is very slightly marked from the impact.
