The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
This is a Tanto that was given to me by the widow of my best friend that died a few years ago. He loved the Japanese swords, and unfortunately I know little of its history. I did have an expert look at it, who determined it was made from a cut down (or broken) WWII Japanese sword. The polishing is not correct, the shape of the blade tip is a bit off, but the parts are all authentic and someone put a lot of time into this piece. The collar was noted as being very unique.
