Contacted by a friend as to what his military wakizashi, (which was given to him was worth).

He supplied photos, and I requested more from him.

And this is what I got.

Have not read the Mei!

Over to you for your thoughts, I have already formed my own opinions.

Dear Dennis, terrible Nakago, sloppy work, steel looks like cheap pattern welded steel. So I believe this to be Chinese made fake.
