Japanese Bayonet - Words on Handle???

1730 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  monkeyboy
I have a Japanese bayonet I think it's a Type 99, on the handle there are Japanese characters, I had them translated and it's somthing like "Spirit under 3" or "Mind under 3" or some variation thereof, the yellow chord came with it though had a fancy knot that I mistakenly untied. Has anyone seen a bayonet with similar writting and any info would be greatly appreciated.

There is no Type 99 bayonet. They are all Type 30's, just many variations abound. This is a trainer bayonet, based on the pommel, crossguard, riveted grips and especially the fuller in the blade.
