“It was outstanding. Nothing short from what I would expect from Japanese people. Takaoki-san and Gin-san treated me to the best purchasing experience I’ve ever had. They were honorable, humble and dedicated to duty. I felt like a family member. I would highly recommend the Samurai Museam Shop to anyone looking to purchase an authentic antique Japanese sword with certification paper work.”

■Customer from Washington, USA
“I received the katana a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it! I only finished gathering everything for my display today so I thought I’d share the finished product.

Thank you again for everything, when I visit Japan I will make sure to stop by.”

I often contemplate if perhaps I was Japanese in a different life. Thank you so much- attention to detail always makes me appreciate the small things in life. I do hope to visit Japan someday. Stay safe and healthy.”

■Customer from Finland
“The sword is magnificent! It is a great honour to be an owner of such a masterpiece. Indeed, I am proud to be trusted to preserve it for coming generations. I will explicitly state in my testament how it has to be taken care of when I am not able to do it myself anymore. Even if the pictures on the web pages are great, it is always different to see it in reality. It is incredible how well it has been preserved up to now. It looks like it could have been made this year.”

■Customer from Hawaii, USA

“Just one word: Phenomenal!”

■ Customer from the UK

10/10. They went above and beyond all expectations. Would recommend to anyone in the market for Nihonto shinken.

■Customer from Georgia, USA
“I wanted to let you know the swords have arrived safely and I had the privilege to unwrap them very carefully. I really appreciated how well you all packaged them in these PVC pipes. They were very well sealed when I received them and I had to remove the end caps with a Dremel carefully and successfully. The swords were very well packaged and preserved inside. I really enjoyed reassembling them as well, appreciating their craftsmanship and detailed artwork. I was careful and wore gloves and made sure I reassembled the wooden pins perfectly where they were intended. I can’t tell you how impressed I am with these beautiful antique heirloom Japanese swords. They are beyond my expectations and I am very proud to own them. I already have them proudly presented in our home. Once again, thank you so much for these incredible pieces which we will cherish forever. ”

I have had an excellent experience purchasing a katana from Samurai Museum, and would recommend this website to anyone interested in authentic Japanese swords and Japanese history. Both Gin-san and Takaoki-san were extremely helpful and knowledgeable; they answered every one of my questions about the katana, and I am very grateful for the help. The katana arrived perfectly and the packaging was impeccable. I look forward to more purchases in the future, and taking care of this magnificent katana for many years to come.
