In overall good condition, an 1883 pattern WW2 Japanese Naval Officer’s Dirk.
The 20.5 cm blade good, some age / very light rust splattering / wear. Blade a little loose in hilt and showing the ha-machi (blade notch). The fishskin / same grip is good and both Sakura (cherry blossom) embellishments / screw covers still present, which is nice. The black same / fishskin saya / scabbard (nicer than leather) is aged but overall good. The dagger sheathes and draws well, and the locking pin mechanism works well.
