    Default Crude Japanese Fighting Knife?

    Hi all i picked up this ugly knife at a yard sale. I got it from an old lady who said her husband was in WW2, and fough in the Pacific. This is one of the items he brought back. Any idea what this is? The total length is 14 inches.
    Thanks all

    Looks like a bayonet blade.
    It definitely is a field made item.
    Cool, nonetheless. Did she have anything else?

    Hi thanks for your input! Unfortunately she sold everything else before I got there. I believe that included his medals, uniform, and helmet...

    AFter looking this over a bit, I believe this "knife'' is made from a sword blade. I am not sure what type of sword, albeit I am sure it is not from a Japanese sword.

    My guess is that this was made by a native person from, as you said, an old sword blade. It is definitely not Japanese.
