    with a stamp on the blade resembling the Mukden stamp found on firearms and bayonets, but it's not what I'm used to seeing.

    Anyone see this as a Mukden stamp, or is it something else?

    I say NO. It looks like something that was replicated at home.

    And, the location to put an inspection stamp is totally wrong. In addition, there would be more than one stamp.

    Ok, thanks to Kiipu's Enlightened searching skills, we now have another. Posted here on Warrelics by Stegel, and one of them is next to the "Emergency" stamp we know is put on blades made, late-war, in the occupied lands (maybe Nan-Man/Mukden) for Japanese officers. So, this is starting to look like a real arsenal stamp, late in the war, from ...... Mukden? Nan-man?
