    You have been given accurate information on the piece. A person should always collect what they want accompanied by accurate information, not what others think. Only you can decide if this is something you want.

    If you wish to learn more about the version you have you can read the pinned thread on the Type 95 as it is one of those mentioned.

    We are looking forward to more photos. Congratulations, there is just something about owning a Japanese blade from the old master all the way to the war time blades. Marty

    I think you made a good decision Douglas , Japanese militaria is not easy to come by over here and the price compensates for the blade condition and mismatched scabbard . It's an original " been there " collectable and not some obscure repro ! Enjoy it

    Well the sword took three weeks to arrive but I am really delighted with it, and I didnt get charged any extra customs fee. By the standards of my collection the condition of the sword is entirely acceptable.

    Congratulations on your latest score! As always, your photography-skills are the best, I'm always impressed by the way you arrange your groupings for photography...well done, friend!
    By the way, I had no idea that shipping/customs costs were so outrageous in the UK...
    cheers, Glenn

    Thanks Glenn for your kind words. Customs charges seem very random and can be very expensive, but recently I have had a run of good luck in avoiding them.
