We strive to provide a quality service to our customers.

To the best of our knowledge we have tried to verify the signature; the signature of the sword is not guaranteed as there are no NBTHK or NTHK origami (certification papers) to go with the sword.

To be reasonably certain as to the maker of a specific sword, it is necessary to submit the sword for shinsa (judging) by one of the major Japanese sword study associations (NBTHK or NTHK). These organisations will judge the sword and issue appropriate papers (origami) attesting to the sword's authenticity and/or historical importance.

The sale, purchase and possession of arms are subject to national laws and regulations. Please ensure that you are familiar with the laws and regulations of your country BEFORE placing a bid. The sale of weapons to people under the age of 18 is prohibited. By placing a bid, you declare that you are 18 years of age or older, and that you have verified that you are allowed to legally buy such items in your country.
