    I also agree that it appears Japanese due to the markings and decorations.
    @Larry, the bottom photo shows the blade. The spine of the blade is ground about 3/4's the length of the blade.
    Possibly described as a cutlass.

    Since this sword has been identified as Japanese,,I will move this thread to the Japanese forum. Regards Larry

    The blade looks new. What I mean is, there is no pitting or accumulated
    dirt/rust on it anywhere.........

    I think it is a modern copy, probably Chinese.

    Hi. I would also agree with the theory that it is Japanese, although I cannot say wether it is legit or not. The only other one I could find on the net was here:

    Vintage WWII German Military Cavalry Saber Sword Rare-in Crafts from Home & Garden on Aliexpress.com

    and they seem to be under the impression that it is German but thats probably mis- identification on their part. Either way its a great looking sword for a bargain price

    That is definitely a fake.

    The original sword - I agree with Walkwolf on the blade. I also think the patination on the hilt looks a little contrived, and having had a look through eBay at what's on offer from China, I will stick my neck out and say the first sword is a fake.

    If it only cost 20 euros - polish it up and hang it on the wall.
