Enshrined in Japanese history as a badge of honor, one of these dirks was presented to each WWII Kamikaze pilot before his last fateful mission. Very few originals survive but this beautifully crafted replica faithfully replicates the piece for the serious collector. Encased in polished rosewood, the aikuchi style dirk features hand-forged edge-tempered blade with the “Must Win” motto of the Kamikaze Divine Wind inscribed in Japanese characters on the habaki. The full-length combat cover is fitted with the traditional neck cord. The Kamikaze head band, emblazoned with the characters for Divine Wind and the Rising Sun, completes this memento of one of the most dramatic moments in the history of warfare.
