Son of a %^&$*! I just got an LB-140, Toyoda early bayonet with the flipped arsenal symbol. It's a nice piece......except for the fact that some bunghole destroyed it as a collector's piece, at least in my opinion. I know you guys have all had these experiences where somebody says "EXCELLENT" condition, and then it really ain't. Well, I've had good luck until now. Either the seller is ignorant of what a Japanese bayonet is supposed to look like, or is was "under represented". The blade has had so much metal removed, it's literally about half as wide as a blade should be. Nice and super-shiny, I can't imagine an arsenal would have done that. My guess is that it was allowed to rot somewhere and somebody "de-rusted" and "de-pitted" the poor thing. I typically ask questions of my purchases, but I've never though to ask if the blades have been sheered to half their normal width! I just didn't pick up on it in the pics. Really pisses me off, I was looking forward to adding that one to my collection but he has a money back guarantee, so I think I'll be sending it back.
