    Stu and Bob, is the combat cover something that can be repaired or replaced?[/QUOTE]

    With enough money anything is possible but really until we see what you are dealing with any answer to that question would be premature.

    It appears to ge a Russo-Japanese war era sword. As it has a removable pin, it possibly contains an older hand made blade. Better pictures will tell us more. I have seen these with combat size blades and also with lighter parade size blades.

    Not what I was expecting but still a cool sword, it looks like a officers Kyu Gunto.

    Here are some better photos of the sword that I rushed to take. This is the best I'll be able to do until later today.

    Hi guys,

    This era is one I'm not comfortable working with but... am I seeing a police sword with five petal cherry blossom?

    Looking forward to seeing the nakago.

    Regards,
    Stu
