Sword ID?

Recommended Posts

Hey, This sword was given to me by my grandfather, supposedly it was taken on Iwo Jima. I don't know where it is originally from but when I removed the bamboo peg to see the tang, all a could see was file marks, no characters or anything. I'm pretty sure Its not one of those standard issue swords, but I'd still like to know the origin if at all possible. Thanks for any help.post-23181-0-29332300-1352991547_thumb.jpost-23181-0-47483300-1352991663_thumb.jpost-23181-0-44697100-1352991927_thumb.j

on a different note, does anyone know how to re-size pictures?

Steve,

I will attach a picture of the tang. This camera can't pick up the file marks that well because it is so bad so i will also attach a drawing i made that shows the rough pattern of the file marks. also, It came with a leather cover for the handle. that's all torn up though post-23181-0-98551000-1353027738_thumb.jpost-23181-0-62420400-1353027827_thumb.j
