I have been pouring over posts on this website for days now and there is a lot of great information here. I was recently given some WW2 "bring backs" from my deceased Grandfather. I am charged with taking care of these items and passing them to my children, selling is not an option. It seems Japanese swords are fascinating items that require a great deal of knowledge to ID. Any help I can get here is appreciated. My 6 year old says its a Power Ranger sword but I am certain he is mistaken, I am posting a few pics but have a lot more in a dropbox folder if I can post a link to it here. Thanks in advance for any help.
