Interesting read on a Warrelics thread about a commonly seen style of fake sword. Guy and Nick go into the accurately written Japanese, and that a slogan normally wishing good fortune in war is rearranged to wish for continued war (against the Japanese!). The kanji and serial number on the blades are all identical as if stenciled and etched, and are obviously made by the same shop.

Ah Bruce, I nearly spat my coffee out, what a laugh!

At least the fakers have a sense of humor too.
