Description

This course will introduce you to the fascinating world of Japanese Swords or Nihonto. It is designed as an overview to expose you to the many different styles of swords you may run into on your appraisal assignment. Mountings, fittings and construction will be examined for you to be able to distinguish the differences between a Chinese reproduction blade, a machine made blade and a traditionally made blade. Also examined will be flaws that can affect the value of a sword. My goal is for you to be able to identify key indicators for you to value the sword on your own or know when to get help from an expert.
