Thoughts on ww2 Japanese double knife set

Recommended Posts

I think this is something put together late Meiji or maybe after the war, to be sold to western tourist or occupation forces.  The finish on the saya is suspicious and the ko jiri is klunky at best.  It was a bargain only because the price was so low..

But better minds may know better.

Hi guys, out of interest, have a closer look at the Kojiri, imagine it without the applied Pseudo Tokugawa Kamon.


Looks like a repurposed Kojiri from a longer Koshirae.


I wonder if we are dealing with early Meiji?


If so, then this falls into the category of Hama Mono i.e. things from the Port, made up from bits and pieces to be sold to the Tourists.


An interesting piece of History nonetheless.
