    During WWII a large number of military as well as civilians smoked, as a result you will find military items with smoke stains on them.
    In Germany the black market economy through the late 40s ran on cigarrette exchange.

    in japan they must held there sword clean at all times even the same as a german soldier whoult maintance his rifle

    but i found out it also could be a plastic rayskin type as this is an early made katana whit waterproof grip[something like the english radios back then]

    cheers

    oh i bought something else a whakizashi from the 19th century
    in good mounting i`ll show it later this week
