    A genuine IJA offcier's katana. It appears to have a contemporary factory made blade. If you can show us the tang, more information can be given to you. If you show the tang, it should be shown in it's entirety with the but at the bottom and the end towards the point at the top.

    Interesting fittings.......... never seen any like that, even in both Fuller's and Dawson's books.
    Could you post some of the tsuba also?
    Thanks

    I think the sword may be good but i do agree with Thomas something does not look right. For me it is the scabbard I would like to see more pictures. Marty

    Hi,

    Just wanted to point out that the chape, end of the scabbard, was manufactured to be the kabuto-gane, the pommel of the hilt. Whether the original owners idea or a post war thing who can say.

    Thanks, everyone, for your comments. I will post more photos, but, it probably won't be until Saturday. Rob.

    I've learned never to say never with these but it's certainly not "textbook" and in my view requires further analysis. I look forward to seeing more photos.

    Regards,
    Stu
