THE FAKING OF THESE SWORDS IS A RECENT EVENT.

I must agree with Bob.The fakes are recent but dangerously devious. I believe yours is original.from what I understand the black iron fittings are of late war production.I have heard that contrary to popular belief,some late war blades can be made by genuine sword smiths!!!perhaps someone can help shed some insight.

GEOFF-
I HAVE ONLY SEEN ONE NCO SWORD WITH A HAND FORGED TRADITIONAL BLADE. IT WAS MOUNTED IN EARLY MOUNTS I AM SURE THIS WAS PRIVATE PURCHASE. IT WAS NOT SIGNED AND POOR QUALITY WORK.

Bob,I must agree with with you.I have recently found a piece,granted not an NCO piece,but a late war sword with black iron fittings,lacquered Ito,and a chocolate brown rough textured Saya.I have posted it as "Tang translation needed"I have always heard that these late war blades were of inferior quality.This blade has an unusual curvature,and a polishers marks.Much different from the other swords of this nature I have.The tang markings are also different.For lack of a better term,they are more "Swirly" I would like your opinion.Best wishes ,Geoff.
