    The blade is Japanese but no temper line. The scabbard and handle are unusual in the fact that they are carved wood.
    I cannot date the blade with the pictures shown but the mounts are attractive.

    Yeah, I am beginning to think it is a hara kari knife....I hope it has not been used...

    My friend (he is Asian, and studies Asian history) is 99% sure it is a hara kari knife...and that it is old, but authenticity is in question...and neither him nor I know how to judge.
