    Hi Nikolaus,, can you pull it out of the scabbard so we can see the blade both sides? although there may not be markings on the blade,,someone who collects these type swords might be able to identify a blade pattern which should at least identify what year it was made,,or who made it.

    @Sultan....Welcom to the forum.....Do you collect these types or possibly might want to share some information on this type of sword that will help out on the Identity? Regards Larry

    I would have to agree with Glenn it has the floral pattern that most Japanese swords have.

    If I was to guess I would go along with Japanese too. Parade sabre circa 1900.Have a look over it for any arsenal stampings on it.

    I agree it looks Japanese from the profile and the cherry blossom decorations. A nice sword.

    I don't collect swords, and most my info on swords is in The classical antiquity, but from its looks, I Could say it could be a 1860 era or a cutlass sword, western made, the Decoration look semi-japanese but they could be western


    it resemebles a cavalry saber from the american civil war called the M1862



    here below is a Gunto, it could be a Gunto with a different scabbard

    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.
