Opinion about Dongbei katanas market

by Jaime Cascante
(Valencia (spain))


This week I met with a store (http://stores.ebay.com/weapons-world-N-1) that sells antique katanas collected during the 1937 war in Dongbei.

Such sales are legal? katanas are authentic?

I would appreciate an opinion on these sales.

Thank you very much.

ANSWER: Hi Jamie,

Unfortunatley - these swords are far from authentic... I wouldn't mind so much if the sellers didn't pretend that they are Gunto (Japanese WWII swords) - but the way they present it is extremely dishonest...
