|A good example of the Japanese M1899 Saber for Army NCOs and Superior Privates as well as NCOs of the Kempi (Military Police). Steel hilted with both the back strap and wood grip checkered. The steel scabbard has a protruding lug on one side which engages the spring clip on the hilt. The metal of both the hilt and scabbard are blackened with blue beneath the black. The blade is in very good condition with no rust or damage and shows about 90% of the extra cost hamon. There is one dent in the scabbard, as shown. The finish has some scattered areas where the blackening has slightly bubbled. Overall a very good addition to any Japanese sword collection Length 36.25"..|
