    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be

    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    For us less informed ( under educated ) in Japanese sword reading this was a real education - thank you all.

    Michael , i think i can just see a Nagoya arsenal stamp on the tang !
    Yes! It is very clear in the new photos.

    [na], short for the city of Nagoya 名古屋

    Good job on the new photos, Gary.


    My question: when were Nagoya arsenal inspection marks initially placed on swords? This sword cleary is dated Showa 10 which is 1935. The "Type 98" did not appear until after 1939, so this must be a 新軍刀 Shin-gunto "Type 94" gunto (1934); ... right?

    Aside:
    My wee doggie's name was "TJ". She died about four years ago at the age of nine years. Sweet dog, and sweet breed -- Golden Retrievers.

    Hi Guy, Thank you once again for the information and your comments. Very sorry to hear about TJ, she looks like a "Sweet" little dog. Although I have had 5 and lost dogs over the last forty odd years, my favourite was Abbey, a long haired Jack Russell referred to by my daughters as "Daddies little princess" and she was. Still miss her and her antics.
    Cheers MR
