    Nice blade.

    A open thought on the where this was picked up from. Would assume a blade like this would be picked up from the occupation of Japan (or maybe Okinawa) and not from the one of the many other island battlefields.

    Just curious on views.

    My thoughts exactly. Not something you would expect to pick up from a battlefield or discarded weapons.

    Thanks!

    Wow I'm loving the work on the tusba and the kozuka.
    The expert on these and the translators should be along soon.

    Pictures the right way...but think the guys will need clearer shots. Some of the Kanji is hard to read.
