    There is a sight on the internet called japanese woman with swords. the trick is you have to marry the japanese girl and bring her family with you to the US to get the sword, thats the easy part. The hard part is bringing the sword back

    Well, do you know how much an authentic/ historic Japanese sword may cost ?
    Nihonto.com. Go look at sword porn. I have dealt with this guy in the past, honest, reasonable.

    The Japanese Swords that bring premium prices are the ones made from true Tamahagane Steel.

    Since there is a market for Japanese Swords, many sword smiths have come into the market. But be warned, beating a truck leaf spring into the shape of a Katana is not the same as producing a blade from true Tamahagane.

    Since the production of Tamahagane Steel is tightly controlled in Japan, only the top craftsmen get the choice pieces.

    If you want a sword from Japan that is in the shape of a Katana, these can be had at a very reasonable price. But if you wish to purchase a true Tamahagane Steel Sword, be prepared to pay thousands.

    Contact Steve Grosvenor in Beresford S.D. He is a bench rest shooter and nice guy. More importantly he is a winner on the Forged In Fire (or is it in Steel?) Show on TV. He can hammer anything into shape.

    I did, entertaining movies.
    But I thought the guy was being serious.

    There are quite a few people who are interested in that sort of thing. Owning a Blade that has a history is probably no more strange than someone like me who has spent $300;000 in the quest to own a $30,000 car that in todayís world is probably about as practical as a sword
