And get a chance to become a member of SBG's elite 'inner circle' of reviewers!

As much as I'd like to be able to, I can't possibly buy every affordable good quality sword on the market (though I'd love to give it a try!) :-)

And since moving to Japan in 2011, it's been a LOT harder for me to get hold of swords to test and review myself, so the time has come to take a back seat and pass on the flame to a new generation of sword reviewers..

Below is a simple form that you can use to submit your own short sword review that will be included in our database of user submitted reviews. While the best reviews are fairly detailed, and include videos, tons of pics, etc all that is really needed is a camera to take a few pics and the willingness to give it a go!

It doesn't matter if you are an experienced sword collector or not - all that matters is that you are willing to give it a go, and EVERYONE's review counts!

But it gets even better because if you submit several good, unbaised 'tell it like it is' reviews, you'll get NOTICED.. And if you get noticed, I might even be willing to SEND YOU SOME FREE SWORDS for some heavy testing out of SBG's coffers (we DON'T accept free swords from manufacturers unless they are totally open to a critical review of their product, so I prefer to fund them myself).

It's really easy to get in on the action, all you need is a digital camera to take a few snaps and to write a few lines and we will take care of the rest (some reviews may be edited for spelling or grammar and may include links to recommended vendors at the end, but are otherwise are unchanged, if you don't like the end result you can request it be removed or changed in the comments section at the bottom of each review).


All reviews and pictures that are approved and get posted on become the property of and are protected by our general copyright.

Reviews MAY be changed slightly when brought across the Sword Buyers Guide for keyword density (SEO, so people can find the review when searching for related terms using google, etc) and to recommend a SBG affiliated vendor as an editors note to keep us funded. However, under no circumstances will these changes alter the nature of the review or your impressions of the sword and will be as minimal and unobstrusive as possible. is NOT responsible for the abuse or improper application of information contained herein, nor is responsible for injury, loss of health, or loss of life.

This offer is subject to change without notice and may be withdrawn at any time. Individuals can also be removed from the review team without notice and at any time at the sole discretion of sword buyers guide.

Swords offered to review team members are at the sole discretion of Sword Buyers Guide. While this offer is open to all countries where swords are legal, choices outside of the USA may be limited by physical shipping restrictions from our wholesale and retail partners.
