Brought back from a cousin of mine in ww2 and was given to my father 25yrs ago. I've had it for a while thought I would post some pics. A little rust pitting toward the front half. Ive never removed the Tsuka(Handle) and dont care to either Its one that will stay with me till Im am not breathing anymore. It has a taperd pin that screws in on the handle most are bamboo as most of you know that Im sure.
