Interested in Samurai swords...Here are a few of the things you should know when looking at them:
  1. Never touch a blade with your bare hands. Our hands contain oils which will rub off onto the blade in the form of finger prints, which will then form rust. Use a soft cloth to hold the blade.
  2. Check to make sure the blade is straight by picking it up to eye level and looking at it from the handle to the tip of the blade. Hand made blades don't normally break but rather bend. This is due to the multiple layers of metal created during the manufacturing process.
  3. Swords have appreciated considerably over the last fifteen years and it is getting increasingly harder to obtain them. Especially at a reasonable price.
  4. The quality of the blade and general condition of the sword are the most important factors in determining its value. Always go for quality rather than quantity.
Sword collecting is a fun activity and an investment. Swords also make a good addition to the decor of a home. We hope you find the information contained on this page useful. If you are looking for swords as an investment and are torn between buying a newer (WWII era) or older (1800's on down) the best thing to do is to figure out which attracts you the most and stick to that.
While currently the WWII era appears to be in more demand, not that long ago it was the older blades that were going up in value.
