    Definitely. Gendaito are found in the pattern with a heavily lacquered wood scabbard and lacquered tsukaito. The pattern with the metal scabbard are always mass produced factory blades. I have seen 100's of these and never found an exception to the variance of the two patterns.
    Hello Bob,
    I have one that has a hand folded blade in a metal scabbard with a leather weather cover.
    I have posted it here, please have a look and let me know what you think. I am not saying that it is an old blade, but it is hand forged.
    My small Japanese collection.
    Thanks,
    Ralph.

    Hi Ralph-
    Your sword is mounted in the traditional IJA mounts. The sword that started this thread is mounted in the 1944 pattern mounts. We are discussing two different things.

    Ralph,

    I translated the previous owner's name of your sword. I thought it was in the Japanese Militaria forum and would show up here ... but it doesn't.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread.

    Not a problem;I enjoyed seeing your beautiful sword and other things.As a collector, it is good to go down all paths to view, to be awed and to learn .

    It looks like your stamp is the more uncommon "gi" stamp rather than Showa.
