    Not a Japanese sword expert far from it have owned a few in the years looks like a Japanese Army mounted Katana missing its handle wrap and scabbard covering if it had any most were in metal scabbards I have encountered I know that the handle is held by one or two wooden dowels that run through the blade tang and normally they may be punched out and the handle removed. I am sure some of the Sword guys will come along. timothy

    The mekugi or mounting pin is in the handler. It is tapered so drive it out correctly. Use a mallet to pound the handle off the tang. The seord appears to be a WW2 standard factory issue blade.
