Physical Description

Dagger - tanto. Hilt, scabbard and mounts made from tubes of bone carved with Japanese figures in traditional costume. Bone kurikata with loop of orange-red cord attached. Temper line is a very regular zig-zag line unlike any illustrated in books on the subject - likely to be faked as dagger was probably made for the early tourist trade.
