    Well, first learn how to take it apart. The maker should be on the tang(?) Value, all depends on the maker, condition etc. I'm not good with Japanese items, sorry. This is all I know.

    there is no harm in taking one apart, just make sure you don't misplace any parts, and make sure you remember the order they came off.
    as for taking it apart, somewhere in the middle to top third of the handle should be a small bamboo peg (or two) that tightly holds the handle to the tang, just take another small piece of wood (or something that wont damage/mark the peg) and gently push on one side of the peg if it does not push out relatively easily, try the same thing on the other side, as these pegs are sometimes bevelled.
    once the peg is removed, gently hold the blade (wear gloves so as not to get oils on the blade) and the handle and pull apart. voila, you are done.
    i would love to see pics of the tang. it sure looks great as it sits, but the makers mark really tells the tale. i do believe that this is a factory made shin gunto blade , but you never know until dissassembled.
    every now and again you do see a sword in these "shin-gunto" fittings that was a "family' sword that has the tang ground down to fith the handle... these are usually much older blades.
