Samurai Swords was exclusively used by samurai warriors
Historically, many mistakenly think that Samurai Swords was exclusively used by samurai warriors. While this is true in some respects, it is definitely not the case. While samurai warriors did indeed use Samurai Swords, they were not solely… confined to using these weapons. In fact, there were a number of other weapon forms used by them, as well as hand-to-hand combat.
While Samurai Swords is most commonly thought of when one hears of Samurai Sword fights, they were in fact used in a variety of other situations, including: fortress defense, hunting, fortress defense, fishing, fencing, fighting duels, etc. All of these activities involved cutting down other people or their armies and using these swords. So, if you have any doubts about whether or not you can buy a samurai sword, I would like to present you with the verification of a verified purchase.
One of the best places to start is with a name-brand manufacturer
There are several Japanese sword manufacturers, so I would expect that any of these companies would have a website where you could do research on their products and get details about the type, style, and dates of production for each sword. In addition, I would expect that these companies would be more than happy to offer pictures and a description about each of their products, so that you could be sure you are getting an authentic piece of Japanese Samurai Swords. Please note, however, that all of the information provided regarding dates and types of production is from a general overview, so it is possible that dates and types may have changed since this information was written.
If a company cannot or will not provide you with any photos or information about the type of sword(s) they produce or where they get their blades, then I would consider that company to be of limited reliability. Many companies have a very quick turn around when it comes to receiving orders for authentic samurai swords, but also many of them are very selective in who they choose to supply their customers with. If a company cannot or will not give you any specifics as to how they get their blades or which swords they produce, then I would stay far away from them. Any company that won’t tell you how you can obtain their product is likely a scammer. Please note, however, that it is possible that all of these companies could be scams, but if you take the time to conduct research on each company, there is a good chance that you will be able to separate the real from the fake.
Japanese Samurai Sword
There are a few other things to look for in a sword that you are considering purchasing as a Japanese Samurai Sword. First, look at the blade edge – does it have a fuller or ridged edge? A fuller edge will create a fuller, larger appearance to the blade edge, which will enhance the blade’s ability to cut. A ridged edge, on the other hand, gives the impression of a smaller, sharper blade. While this will probably not affect your typical slicing situation, you may want to be sure that the edge has been professionally done and is as realistic looking as possible.
You should also take into consideration the scabbard. If you are purchasing a single-handed sword, then there is no reason that you should have to worry about your scabbard. On the other hand, if you were looking at two handed samurai swords, or a banana, you would want to check out the quality of the scabbard and be sure that the leather is well constructed and fits comfortably on your arm. By checking each of these things before you buy your samurai swords, you will be sure to make a great purchase that you will enjoy for many years to come.
