More tips before you part with your hard earned cash and buy a Samurai sword.

If you don't like our recommendation, here are some additional tips to help you find something else suitable:

  • Avoid stainless steel blades. They are not safe for cutting and most really look quite atrocious compared to the real thing.
  • Stick to well known brands. While ebay can be a good place to buy a Samurai sword once you have some experience, there are too many scammers and overly hyped swords for sale for the first time or casual sword buyer.
  • Before deciding where you will buy, ask some questions of the seller. Check their return policies. A good seller will take a little time out of their day to answer your questions, as long as they are to the point and reasonable. If they don't answer a basic question, imagine how difficult it will be trying to deal with a customer service problem..
  • Before you make a decision,read as many reviews and learn as much as you can before you make a decision to buy. 

Finally, if after doing all that you are still unsure what sword will suit you best, feel free to drop us a line and we will do our best to make a recommendation or two (though please allow us time to reply, we get a lot of emails every day and it takes time to get back to every single one).
