  *Each katana sold on our site is one of a kind. Prior to fulfilling your order we will personally reach out to confirm your order.

Each Japanese sword is registered under the Agency for Cultural Affairs in Japan. Upon transfer of ownership, such as through a purchase on our site, a new registration paper must be issued for its owner to legally possess it. This registration paper serves to authenticate the origins of the blade.

To legally export a sword such as this from Japan to other countries, we will have to apply for a transfer of ownership permit from the Agency for Cultural Affairs and return the original registration paper to the Board of Education. This process normally typically takes 4 weeks. And so please be aware that it may take 1-1.5 months before you may receive your blade.
