Before you go on your Sword Purchase Quest, the first thing you need to do is be honest with yourself and figure out what you really want to buy. Do you want a Replica or an Original Sword. An Original will cost you many thousands of dollars, and you’ll only be able to pick up one of these at a Museum or possibly from an Oriental Master. However you can still find Swords For Sale Online that are historical replica models if you are one of the serious collectors out there.
Just about any Sword you will find online will be a damascus steel katana Sword, and these Battle Weapons are generally accepted by the public and the Replica World as Collectors Items. There are a few reasons you may want to purchase a Replica Sword For Sale. The first reason is that just about all of them these days look so cool. And if you’ve taken Karate and are a Green Belt or above, you probably know at least the basics of using a Katana Sword.
So the first reason would be for self defense, and keep in mind these reasons are personal preference and don’t meant to be given in any particular order. The 2nd reason is that they look so cool, and believe me, these Battle Weapons definitely are impressive and worth showing off. Some of these weapons really spice up fireplace mantels and look terrific hung up on the wall. The 3rd reason is possibly someone you know would love to have one of these as a gift.
Swords were the primary Battle Weapon used not only by the Japanese Bushido, but by European Viking Warriors like the Romans, and even the Calvary until guns were introduced. They have a history that goes back a lot longer than guns do. Replica Swords these days are mass produced, which makes them much more affordable these days than they were say 50 years ago. You can pick up just about any Sword these days for under $100.00, although the very crafty ones can run much more.
So my point is even if you own a Replica Sword, you still own a piece of history. You can feel what the Japanese Bushido or the Viking Warriors felt when they held their weapons hundreds and thousands of years ago. You can say it’s just one of those you’ll never know what you’re missing until you try it scenarios in action. If you don’t believe me, ask any Sword Collector.
