WW2 Japanese Kamikaze Pilot's Dirk / Knife,
In good condition, a WW2 Japanese Kamikaze (Divine Wind / Suicide)
Pilot's Dirk / Knife.
These are very rare pieces but hard to prove authentic as very
few survived WW2 by nature of the pilots who carried them. Plus,
the style varied enormously, though the basics are the same. This
one has age which lends itself to being authentic, such age is near
impossible to fake.
5 5/16 inch unsigned blade in good condition. The leather sheath
and hilt with clear age but are good. The neck rope is possibly
a later addition. Total length when sheathed 9 7/8 inches. Great
price £750. Please quote item number AF25. Full sized pictures
available upon request. Tube 1087-50x8 (0.363).
