Hi Guys,

 

I'm new here and am interested in this WW2 sword I found. I just wanted to know if this is fake or not?

 

Thanks!

Yes, a fake of the NCO gunto, the giveaway is the chinese characters on the blade most of the time.

 Traditional Chinese military swords often have writing on the blade, unit designations, location, date and etc. They carry this practice over to their fakes of Japanese swords.... thankfully!
