    Hi Again Alan, The wear and tear are, to me, the only saving grace for this sword. A poor quality example but perhaps original??? This sword has certainly got me thinking!! None Japanese manufacture? Yes, why not. The fact of the matter is that I am cluless!!!
    Cheers Michael and thank you once again for your input on this subject. I'll detail a "real" Japanese sword next!! LOL

    It is real and original Michael and comes from the Pacific Theatre , and has its own story to tell ! I like it

    Yes Alan, so do I. In less than an hour this sword, in pictorial terms, has travelled the world and has gone from, in my opinion, a heap of repro crap to an interesting and, again in my opinion, quite desireable piece of interesting military history. And, all due to the time, interest and knowlede of the supporters of this Forum!!!!
    Thank you Alan and all the other people who have responded to this and my other threads
    Best wishes All Michael R

    As this sword was made by craftsmen who likely did not posess the intricate workmanship of a Japanese arsenal, the reason for every loose part being numbered makes sense. Not an art sword but a very interesting locally made military sword for native troops loyal to the Japanese.
