    Hello, here is julekpl again. I am interested in a type 95 Japanese katana, but I am not too familiar in what to look for for authenticity. The owner would like $250, but there is room to barter. Any thoughts on this piece?

    Thanks!

    I am interested in it but the writing does look a bit suspicious...looks as if the owner was trying to wearing it down? It seems to have been done on purpose maybe?

    I have seen lots of fakes with this writing on the blade

    Ah I see. I have noticed that many of these "Japanese" katanas are coming in from China, and are always available on ebay.

    Indeed a Chinese made fake.

    Had it been genuine, $250 would have been a considerable bargain...
