    Not sure what you are after. Its a repro. you could spend money on a better scabbard, but why? Fine for re-enacting as is, as long as that does not involve cutting, which is likely dangerous with this blade.

    Not the worse repro, and the money was right. Some pay 600 for such on ebay, or a rather low price with 100 + shipping, so you did alright.

    If it were me I would save up for a real period item. A real gunto w.machine made blade should be doable for 600, but have seen them go for 1200 +. Prices have shot up.

    Regards

    PS> I posted a link to a Japan gunto site. in another pammy thread. Check it out. More than you need on what is right/wrong for a gunto.

    Cheers
