I got this 20 years ago found these forums and others. I think its real but have some slight doubts. Namely the blade is not sharp. It might have been at one time. The blade seems rather shiney for a carbon steel as well.
Here are the photos:
There is some staining and a fingerprint etcth on the blade. They were there when I bought it. And the scabbarde had pencil crayon or crayon on it. I removed much of that with an erasor. Any opinions or comments or evaluation about my sword would be appreciated.
