Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Hello, I would like to see if you guys could please help me identify this sword. I am due to look at it tomorrow and I would like to know what the engravings mean, and if it is a quality blade or a cheap knockoff. The person says it was given to as a presentation gift by a large company as some sort of bonus along with the stand and plaque and knows it cost them $1200. Any input would be great. The person says the blade says Taiwan--does this immediately make it a cheap knockoff in itself? Thank you.
