1 desirable early custom Japanese Navy Officer's dirk available.  The Japanese dirk would make an important addition to any collection.

This dirk was carried from the Russo-Japanese War through World War 2.  See the custom features on this dirk--the custom kashira (pommel fitting) and saya/scabbard drag fitting.  Another custom Naval dirk is shown on pages 28 & 29 of Ken Banks' book Japanese Pattern Dirks, The Banks Collection.

This dirk measures 13" overall.  The blade itself measures 8 1/4".  

As can be seen in the photos, the sharkskin has deteriorated.  With a little vision for this dirk--the fittings from this dirk can be added to the sharkskin saya from a different--even later, dirk.  The wire handle wrap is perfect.  The blade has some oxidation.  The locking mechanism functions perfectly.
