Welcome to ejapaneseswords.com...

After 30+ years of collecting swords and 14 years of living in Japan, I have decided to offer my services to the collector community on-line...

ejapaneseswords.com is your source for high quality, collectable Japanese swords. Most swords offered are in fresh, top quality Japanese polish and come with N.B.T.H.K.  kanteisho. These are investment grade swords. Many are mine, others come from collector friends from around the world. They are not cheap, but they are of high quality and represent good value.

I also offer shinsakuto, which are traditionally made new swords, made to order, by today's top swordsmiths. These are the antique treasures of tomorrow; heirlooms you participate in creating today. They are available for collectors as well as martial artists, at prices a fraction of what you will pay elsewhere.

After 14 years of living in Japan, I have developed personal relationships with many top craftsman who are fully trained, highly experienced, and take pride in their work. As a result, you will not find better prices anywhere for quality newly made swords, polishing, or restoration work. I can provide numerous references on request.

I often come across books and other items of interest to the collector. I will offer these items on a limited basis.  If there is something specific you are looking for, please let me know.

I am also happy to assist should you need translations, appraisals, or wish to buy or sell a sword. Feel free to contact me with your questions. I will make every effort to meet your needs...

Please enjoy the fascinating world of the Japanese sword!
