    Default Help ID, authenticity of Samuri Scabbard

    Hi. I recently found a,suspected WW2 Era Japanese Army Samuri Scabbard. The person I got it from claimed to getting the Samuri sword and scabbard from a WW2 Vet. He stated that the sword and scabbard was caked in casmoline and the Scabbord still has that smell on the inside. For some reason, this person canabalized the sword for parts but was just getting rid of the scabbard. I have been trying to search the forum for similar scabbards and hardware.
    If I can get any input as to this scabbard s authenticity and identification, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Nothing to do with Samurai but it is for a WW2 IJA Officer sword. Have a look here ...
