Just saw this on eBay and was about to message SKIPH.  Knife and scabbard definitely repro.  Thanks for posting.

Greetings all,
 
Today's entry, a Japanese copy listed in the original category, which the seller indicates "this is not a Japanese copy." Bonus, "the original sheath is in nice condition and has the 2 tabs on the side of the sheath." Yes, the scabbard is a modern reproduction as well.  At least this seller is fully embracing their convictions by stating the knife is "original." Most of these reproduction sold as original types add some obligatory "I'm no expert judge for yourself" blurb in their item's description. By indicating the knife is specifically not of Japanese origin, this seller is basically indicating they know exactly what they are doing. You can't make this stuff up.  :dry:

 

Best,

So much great information in this thread.

 

I just got one of these that has had the knuckles removed so I came here to see what I've got. I'll take some pics and post them up, in case they will be useful to anyone.
