Antique Japanese Sword& Export Process

All the antique Japanese swords we sell are hand-forged edged swords, which are at least 150 years old or older. Also, the blades were made of Japanese special carbon steel called TAMAHAGANE. 

 The Japanese sword is considered a cultural article for the Japanese Cultural Agency(Bunka-Cho). Therefore, we will need to obtain its export permit from the agency before we ship any Japanese swords overseas. It might take a long time to receive this permit so, we would like you to expect at least 2-3 months for us to ship the sword you ordered. We have shipped antique Japanese swords to USA, UK, France, Australia, Canada(BC, AB province), Mexico before. Once we receive the permit, we will ship your sword with a PVC pipe, which is one of the most secure packages because of its durability.

We ship by EMS(Japan Post Office), an international shipping carrier based in Japan, and inform you of a tracking number for your sword. We will put 100 % insurance for your sword without any extra charge.

*Please keep in mind that due to the spread of COVID-19, there are delays in shipping to many countries as most of the airlines are reducing the number of flights from Japan. If you like to know the detail about shipping, please feel free to ask us.
