Hi All,

Many of you know that I have been collecting these Japanese dirks for years. A couple weeks ago I picked up another meiji period naval dirk with a traditionally made blade. Here are a few pics of it.

Hi Bill,
Very nice, I have one just like it,lol. I'm very happy with the one I got from ya. Here's a pic. of the display I came up with for it. Pretty basic, but I kinda like mounting'em on plaques. BTW, I meant to ask you if all of these blades had signatures on the tang. I removed the cherry blossom w/stud in an attempt to check, however the grip was so tight on the tang I didn't want to force it and just put it back in rather than risk damaging something.

Best Regards,

Mike
