The sharp blade under the cold light-Japanese style 95 saber
In Japan, in addition to the Katana, there is another type of sword that has always been loved by domestic and foreign swordsmen. That is, the Japanese saber. The Japanese saber and the samurai sword are not a concept. The Japanese samurai sword refers to the traditional craftsmanship. The saber is different from the saber. Most sabers in Japan are made by machinery and not purely handmade. Therefore, in the eyes of the Japanese, sabers are not Japanese swords. Even so, the Japanese sword also exerts its extraordinary power. In 1935, the non-commissioned officer was also issued a saber, called the 95-style saber. The handle imitates the pattern of the officer's saber handle (such as cherry blossoms and ribbons wrapped around flowers) and is made of copper or aluminum. The locking device of the knife is similar to the Japanese 32-type cavalry saber. It is a bridge type, but it is not on the side of the handle, but on the upper part of the handle (the mouth of the palm when holding it). In addition, the sergeant saber has a blood groove on the blade, which is shaped like a "stick groove" in the Japanese sword, that is, a blood groove runs straight through the tip of the blade. As the successor to the 32-style saber, the 95-style saber is mechanically made and belongs to the actual combat saber. Although it is not as well-forged and beautifully decorated as the general saber, it is equipped for the frontline sergeant and Cao Chang. A very sharp weapon. It can be seen that the Japanese High Command has carefully considered the design of various actual combat sabers. It is necessary to allow the holder to fully feel the samurai spirit to boost morale, and it must also allow the saber to perform well in actual combat. which performed 95-style saber can be said to be a combination of the two.
The Japanese saber under the traditional standard refers to the saber worn by the old Japanese soldiers "land, navy, air officer and noncommissioned officer. The more familiar sabers include the 94 series, 95 series and 98 series sabers. Regarding historical events, their performance is indeed Very tough.

The most eye-catching feature of Japanese military sabers is that there are many cherry blossom patterns on each metal decorative piece. Someone used a knife to count the number on the handle, guard, locking button, and knife ring. There are 31 cherry blossoms of various sizes in places such as the scabbard copper ornaments and the hanging ring seat. There is a Japanese saying: "The flowers count the cherry blossoms, and the number of the samurai." Ancient Japanese samurai professed themselves with the cherry blossoms and died like the cherry blossoms withered, which was regarded as an ideal destination. The Japanese soldiers in the era of militarism continued this tradition. The students who graduated from the noncommissioned school at the same time called each other "Sakura of the same period." The military anthem even sang: "We sacrificed our lives for the country like the cherry blossoms withered."
