I always liked the combat wrapped japanese swords!

Just something that brings a visual vison of Japanese officer with sword!


My friends son just did a little talk of ww2 at outside show!

I took a few pics of a sword and will try to add more!

Lets see yours!

I like them!

Japanese swords are very popular things and nobody including the moderator has not even said a peep!

If I would show on other forum it would lite up!

I have some other swords to show and things but if collectors here are not interested I will just post on other forum!

I hear that a few hard core dagger collectors are the only ones keeping this site alive. This used to be a great site and it's a shame what it's turn out to be particuarly for us old timers.

Thanks for looking and responding! Andy! Your alive!!!! wink

Nice to see you post and share your thoughts!

I have seen many and might have pics of bottom wrapped in leather!

Do you think its the elements in jungles maybe for protection!

Bob

At Roberts Center this week I bet we see a few!

Any other collectors see them or have!

I think the moderator is in jungle! grin He is putting up a good fight on WAF island!

Hey Paul!
Nice swords and accouterments! The leather combat cover is to protect the tsuka under it, simply for protection. And yes, there is another type that fully covers the handle.
See you at the SOS!

Here's one fresh out of the attic. standard Gunto with a seki blade so nothing special. Signed Hidetoshi.
Interesting part is it seems to have a field repair to the leather saya cover with another piece of leather have been put on the lower part and the joint covered with a canvas cord wrap.

Has a surrender label on it but kanji are too faded to be able to read it.

Didn't pay a lot for it (well not on the UK).

Regards

Mark
