      To me it looks like a samurai, Japanese sounds right to me.

      Definitely a samurai and I'm pretty sure Japanese. Hoping to find out time period and a little more info about it. Thanks

      Omg. That's amazing. I have googled all kinds of things and looked on eBay and you found what looks to be very much the same. Thank you very much now I'm going to Google all about that that's great.
