Japanese dirk by unknown zoom

Japanese dirk

Japanese dirk, the hilt of the dirk consists of a gilt brass pommel, which is cap-shaped and is decorated with an embossed design of a cherry flower. Although this weapon is not made in the Japanese tradition of sword design, it bears many similar features, which illustrate its origins. The cherry flower motif is the same as that appearing on service swords - the cherry being auspicious and widely used as a decorative form. This is a factory-produced weapon, which compares favourably with similar articles in the West. It seems likely that most Japanese Officers could wear dirks from about the time of the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905) onwards.
