  1. I wasn't planning on it, it has always served as a display piece and nothing more. I luckily have healthy respect towards weaponry and as such I wouldn't want to use it for anything else either without at least studying proper handling techniques and the likes first, even if it was a real sword
  2. Ah, it's a shame but it doesn't surprise me. Thank you both so much for taking the time to look at it and reply, at least I can say with some more certainty what it is now.
  3. Hey guys, I bought this katana from China nearly two decades ago and it's been serving as a display piece ever since. I realize it's very likely a cheap reproduction but that hasn't stopped my curiosity, so I've recently decided to disassemble the sword and interestingly enough found signatures on both the tang and the tsuba. But not being Japanese myself or having formally studied Kanji or such I have absolutely no clue what I'm looking at, so I was hoping someone here would be kind enough to help me in the right direction Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance. *note: it might not be significant considering the swords origin, the the other side of the tang also seems to have a small figure 8 stamped into it near the bottom.
