Default ww2 japanese sword??

Hello, my grandfather bought this sword out of impulse... Its suppose to be a world war two japanese sword but I have my doubts, I don't know anything about japanese swords so I was looking for some help and opinions and possible a value. Not looking to resell it but trying to see how bad my gramps did.

Hey man, hate to break the news, but it is a Chinese fake. The blade's shape is bad and the horimono (artistic engraving) is a sure giveaway with the terrible drawing.
