Dear All,

 

would appreciate your opinion on this sword.

I know that the pics might not help much.

I'm just looking for confirmation if it's a WW 1 sword, and how much you'd think it is worth to pay for.

 

Appreciate all help I can get.

Regards

China version of a ww2 kai gunto. What is worth? It's a deco piece. How much would you pay for deco.

Thanks a lot, the owner says it has only been polished, that's why it looks like this.

Price is EUR 1,5k :)))

Yeeeowww! Don't do it! The steel is "damascus" steel which is used by Chinese fakers, NOT Japanese. NONE of the fittings are accurate for Japanese. Like the guys said already - it's a Chinese fake of a WWII Japanese sword.

The Chinese sell these on fleaBay for 150 USD.
