Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Hey, Just trying to determine the authenticity and price of this "World War II" NCO Katana. The guy says on his ad: "I picked this up while I was living in Okinawa Japan", and goes on to talk about the features of the sword, describing that the green scabbard and green hand wraps are standard issue, most of what he says was added after the first time of me talking to him and asking for more details. I looked high and low, far and wide for information and details of WWII Japanese katana's and couldn't find much information or many pictures of similar swords. I'm just here looking for some help on identifying the sword and seeing if it's authentic so I know if it's worth adding to the collection. Any help is appreciated, thank you.
