My mother's uncle served in the Pacific and saw quite a bit of combat. He brought this sword back from the war. This sword was passed along to me and I have been trying to research it, but it's difficult. There are so many variants.
Most swords that I have seen have a leather covering over the scabbard, this is just wood. I don't know if the cover is missing, or perhaps this was just a machine made sword for the civilian population.
I appreciate all of the expertise that I have seen on this forum, and any information is appreciated.
