WW2 PERIOD JAPANESE TANTO KNIFE.
Measuring 315 mm end to end in the scabbard with a blade length of approx 165mm, this Tanto is slightly longer than traditional Tantos. It has an exceptional polished blade with a pronounced wavy Harmon. I have had the tang inscription deciphered to read EN- DO ICHI MON JI SAKU with a showa date of the 21 January 1941.
This is an exceptionally nice Tanto.
