    Hello, my grandfather has recently passed and I've obtained some of his personal items and I'd like to know a bit about them if anyone knows/is interested. I've found what looks to be an old Japanese fillet knife and a Japanese generals sword

    Welcome, Emeritus! My condolences on your loss. Things like knives and swords are often posted in Militaria or Metalware, even though many were not meant for use by a soldier.

    That's good - and as you post, you'll see an option to make your image "full size." Always check that box; and for now, you can just click the edit button on your post, select full size for the image, and like magic, your image will be full-size instead of thumbnail.
    It is just more convenient for others if it is bigger.
    And welcome!
