Kanji On Nakago Mune
Posted 12 March 2017 - 12:14 PM
found one small topic on this while searching around. got mantetsu to today and apart from regular markings on nakago (inkluding the mukden arsenal stamp), I discovered these markings on the nakago mune. Fuller and Gregory I think makes no or scarce mention of these markings.
I will proceed in trying to decifer, but if those are further arsenal markings then they might not translate I guess. so: were such markings om nakago mune commonplace anyone know?
this is first post from cellphone, hope it works out.

I don't know the top kanji, but the bottom 3 are "479". It is not known why Mantetsu numbered their blades. Some have speculated that they relate to a contract or batch numbers.
I have found an interesting thread, though, on other things written on nakago mune: http://www.militaria...on-nakago-mune/
