WW2 Japanese Naval Officer's Dirk (1883 Pattern),
In overall good condition, an 1883 pattern WW2 Japanese Naval
The 20.5 cm blade good, some age / very light rust splattering
/ wear. Blade a little loose in hilt and showing the ha-machi (blade
notch). The fishskin / same grip is good and both Sakura (cherry
blossom) embellishments / screw covers still present, which is nice.
The black same / fishskin saya / scabbard (nicer than leather) is
aged but overall good. The dagger sheathes and draws well, and the
locking pin mechanism works well.
