Nice original example..the washer surely preserved the blade from any age and moisture. The crossgrain is very nice. Grip plates are unmessed with. Great investment type dagger! Regards Larry

Those daggers are not only expensive and rare but as we all know highly faked.
Before buying a dagger like this study is needed.
You have to have had a few originals in hand to get the feel of them.
Not having any dealers like Wittmann or Paul of LST in Holland to show any real examples its hard to go after one, if your not willing to pay topdollar.
So thx Stu for some more reference material, it sure is a good looking one.
btw: Stu did you already framed the Japanese flag i sent you?
Would be pleased to see how it looks like in a frame on your wall
