I have recently began researching a Gunto I inherited from my grandfather who served in the Marines during the WW2 Pacific campaign. He was in many historical battles including Iwo.
Parts of the Gunto seems to be unique. More specificly the Tsuba. the menuki's and the stamp on the tang. Any help in pulling somne history from these would be great!
If the pictures are to big for uploading they can be found here.
