Swordstore.com is wholly owned by Cutting Edge Technologies Inc. (CET, Inc.) and we have been in business since 1991 and on the internet as a web store since 1996.
Japanese swords (Shinken) are made by master smiths called Toshyo. Each smith must be licensed by the Japanese government and must use traditional methods in Japanese sword making. Each sword is registered by the Japanese government. The Japanese government also controls the number of katana length swords each smith can make. There are approximately 300 registered smiths in Japan ranging from once in awhile hobbyists to full time smiths. SwordStore.com only works with smiths that depend upon their craft for their livelihoods and do not work with hobbyists.
We are committed to providing our clients the best customer experience possible. We strive for uncompromising integrity, thoroughness to detail and to selling only the best products available.
Besides selling swords and iaito, Rick has been studying various budo since 1968 and iaido and jodo since 1974. He was motivated by the absence of quality products for sincere martial arts students to try and obtain the best products available.
Thank you for your interest in SwordStore.com and for giving us an opportunity to earn your business. Only SwordStore.com offers the finest products, services, and warranty support for Japanese swords and accessories - accept no compromise
