Antique Japanese Blades (including Gunto, Gendaito, etc.)

I do not currently offer any services for repolishing existing Japanese blades. This is by choice. I feel that proper restoration, especially of antique blades, requires a background in not only proper technique, but also the full history of the Japanese Sword. I do not feel I know enough of the history to feel comfortable working on an antique of value. Frankly, there really aren't many people out there to whom one should even consider sending their antique sword.

 

See my links page for a number of quality polishers in the US. If you'd rather send your katana to Japan, contact me via e-mail and I can make some suggestions on who to contact.
