    Default Last ditch Japanese military sword

    This is the last type of Infantry sword produced by the Japanese during WWII.
    This sword was captured on Saipan by:
    John Scott
    US Marines
    2nd Division
    110th Artillery

    It has a metal scabbard, plain steel hand guard and wooden handle with diamond shape designs.
    The blade is machine made and has no temper line.
    It is crude compared to earlier machine made Japanese military swords.

    Hi Steve , thanks for showing this sword , it`s basic construction really highlights the desperation in Japan towards the end of WW2 to manage to keep their troops supplied with arms from a severe lack of materials . A piece with provenance , i think it`s great
    REGARDS AL

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...
