Meiji Era Enlisted Sword


Recommended Posts

I have only seen (via pictures) one Meiji era Type 8, ever, but it was like the ones seen in Dawson's book, pages 30-31.  He has a close one, thought to be custom made on pages 40-41, but there are differences.  Of course, all Type 8s, 19s, and Kyugunto had multitudinous variations, so it is possible Dawson's is simply a shop variation of this model.


But the short answer is - no haven't ever seen one.  Interesting bit of history there!
