A look at the Japanese Imperial Household Dirk

Recommended Posts

Just because they are so hard to find--here are photos of a desirable Imperial Household dagger I just picked up.  

 

Enjoy.

On Bill's page,the box says 朝鮮 總X(督)=Choson(North Korea)  Governor.So ,it might be a gift from 天皇 Emperor to the occupied North Korea  Governor.

For those not on Warrelics, I thought I'd post this link. Nick Komiya uncovered a document about non-standardized Navy Police Dirks. Prior to 1891, when the standard was set, they were up to personal taste and designs varied greatly. The post originator shows one that seemed to have a navy dirk in a police saya, but there were things not right about the saya, too. Nick found out why!
