I have been trying to find examples of the proper way to tie or display the tassel on a type 98 Shin Gunto.  Here is how mine is tied\displayed.  Is this how the Japanese soldier tied the tassel in the field or was there a specified tassel tying protocol for field use?  

 

Sorry, I'm a newbie here, and have to apologize, since this post is referring to a Type 98 Shin Gunto I I think the better place for this post is in the Related Topics section under the "Military Swords of Japan" (sorry I didn't see this section prior to posting here). An admin will have to move it on my behalf.  

 

Thanks, 

 

Darren

I just ordered the The Samurai Sword: A Handbook, by Yumoto, John M.

 

Got it used for $4,51 with free shipping.  

 

and ordered the MILITARY SWORDS OF Japan 1868-1945 by Richard Fuller and Ron Gregory used for $15.00

 

Thanks,

 

Darren
