    Default Japanese Navel Dirk

    This is my latest "acquisition" A lovely Japanese Navel dirk circa 35 ish, I think. It was picked up a couple of days ago along with the Wakizashii and Katana blades.

    This was purchased in the 60's here on the Island and it is the first time it has been anywhere else.

    Am I right in thinking that the blade, although displaying signs of being hand forged, is in fact a mass produced blade? There are no markings on the hilt, but I've just seen one on Whitman's site, and I believe he must be on drugs!!

    Only on the very rare occasion is the blade a special made to order blade and they are signed..the vast majority are just factory made examples
