    Default WWII Katana ID?

    Can anyone identify the maker and tell me about this katana please? The pictures of the blade do not show the heat treating on the edge but it is very nice. I used flower to bring out the writing. There is a S/N on the brass at the top of the blade #26976. Starting at the blade end of the brass the blade is 29" long

    Thanks

    Youir pictures are not clear enough to see many details. However, the Japanese never put a serial number on the habaki(metal collar between the tang and cutting edge). That is a common characteristic of the modern Chinese replicas. I would try to return this piece if possible. Where did you get it?

    I'm trying to clean out some of my more questionable items from my collection. I'll add this one to those.
