Hello everyone,

 

This piece was basically pulled from a pile off trash and is in pretty rough shape. Can some please help identify age and inscriptions?

 

Length approx: 26 inches.

 

Thank you all in advance for your time and help.

 

Kind regards,

Jo

You have a late type 3 sword dated Feb 1945. The makers name should be on the other side. It is most likely not hand made from tamahagane and not a true gendaito, but rather an oil tempered piece of modern steel.

Perhaps YOSHI (?) TADA.
Grinding a NAKAGO is a bad idea, but in this case it may not be so damaging as it looks like a late WWII factory blade.

If you find another trash find. Take a old oiled terry cloth rag and do some wiping of rust. Never remove patina. Ya never know it could be a lost treasure.

One man's trash is another man's treasure. I met three ladies over the years who told me they threw away in the trash daggers and swords that their deceased husbands acquired in WWII.  The little darlings bring joy to the world, if you happen to get lucky. Nice find JoJo. I would loved to have been a garbage man fifty years ago in,  Beverly Hills, Scarsdale, NY, Palm Springs,  Bethesda,  Maybe not that long ago. The WWII veterans were the greatest generation. We owe everything we have to them, never forget it.  Peace.

Sheesh! I wish I could find these sorts of things just laying about. Its absolutely crazy to think that they'd end up in the trash! Also really saddening to think how many antique blades have met their end this way. :(
