Re: Japanese Dirk identification
Could it of been a ''personal'' item that someone took into battle...they sometimes did that as dad told us...my dad was on Guadalcanal Nov14 1942 to sometime in Jan 43...his ship was sunk on Nov 13th 42 and was floating around the bay for a day until Marines picked him and the other shipmates up....
very cool heirloom
