The fully restored Katana has arrived.....please later posts starting at #33 for updated photos!!!!!
Can anyone help me identify what type of sword this is. Someone said it was for pilots but I have nothing to back this up.
It's shorter than the typical Katana's. Blade is ~23 inches. Overall length is around 32 inches.
No markings on the tang.
Blade is razor sharp but with some pitting and stains.
Condition otherwise is good.
Could not get a good shot of the blade but can try again another day.
As usual, any and all comments are welcome.
