    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Here are the pics I took this morning. I was in a hurry so if they seem crappy I'm sorry. And if someone could post them in that site to appraise it, that would be awesome.

    Thanks

    Your sword looks like a sword of one of the fraternal orders, but take it to swordforum if you want a better answer. If I recall correctly their policy is that they won't provide value estimates but they will try to ID if for you.

    Yeah… it looks like a ceremonial Freemason sword… not that well looked after, but not necessarily anything that old, or valuable, bluntly… and, as for swordforum.com… dude, it's a forum… if you've got time to post it here, you have time to post it there.

    It never ceases to amaze me the sheer amount of misinformation that is readily available on the internet. This is despite how easy it is for people to properly educate themselves. Too many people would rather perpetuate misinformation than take the time and effort necessary to really learn about the subject they are writing about.

    I really appreciate your feedbacks. :) Well, experience is still the best than just reading articles over internet.

    I think that Samuraise's sword's were truely great think for any collectors of the ancient weapons, straight lines, it's nice peace of art any way, but I would like to know, if some body know, how to distinguish the true weapon from the false ?

    It depends on what you mean by "true" and "false". If you're looking for historical originals, then you buy from dealers with good reputations, which are easily searchable in this forum. The swords have papers and all that.

    If by "true" you mean a functional japanese-style sword, there are excellent modern smiths all over the world. Pick one.

    If you mean "how can I tell if a random Japanese sword I find in a shop somewhere is actually from the feudal period" then you need to get educated as a collector of such objects, which is no small task. Start studying.
