Japanese Katana Sword
After World War II countless US servicemen were coming home with souvenirs from the Battlefield. For a few Pacific service men lucky enough to find one they were clutching one of these bad boys. The Japanese Empire in the days of WWII had never really faced defeat, in fact in the minds of many of their officers it was nigh impossible. Thus when these young men went off to war they brought with them their family sword, in many cases one that had been passed down for generations, never considering that it may be lost.
Older Japanese katana blade remounted during the WWII. It was a common practice to remount antique blades for use during the 2nd world war. Many of these blades were family heirlooms.
