    Japanese Bayonet I think Type 99 the writting translates to Mind under 3 or Spirit under 3, in all my searching I have never found another like it. It has been in my family a long time though the person that had it is long since passed away. I would love additional info.

      It is a standard Japanese bayonet, and for some reason this phrase meant enough to the soldier that he carved it into the wooden grip. It is always more desireable to have something that is personalized. Tassels were not used on Japanese bayonets, and this tassel is not a Japanese officer sword tassel. This was probably added on at a later date. Very nice.
