WW2 Kai Gunto identification.
Article about: My friend purchased this sword quite cheaply from an antiques dealer last year. The low price was because the gentleman specialised in antiquities and apparently obtained the sword in a lot
Hi and welcome to the Forum. I think 'Fake' is a suitable
term for this sword.........
Well this is weird. I tried posting this a week ago and its only come through now. I put up another post about the sword because I thought this hadnt worked. I'm sure someone will know how to delete the thread.
Thanks steve, I was very doubtful myself! I think the idea of a 'fake' is very misleading though. I prefer to see items like this as bad reproductions unless there is an intent to fool buyers!
I understand. I do not own one myself, but a friend
has a couple. The workmanship is of very high
quality, which this one does not exhibit.
Others with more experience will be along with
comments, I'm sure.........
