Heir 's Duty

Maeda clan's warrior

Swordstore now offers Japanese art in both antique and high quality limited reproductions. We also have the ability to produce any size (within ratio) reprint that you desire whether your intention is to place in a frame, use as a banner or decorate an entire wall space – we can do it! About this scroll: This scroll was commissioned for a 1st son’s (Inuchiyo) first battle. It is unlikely that he would’ve been allowed anywhere near a battle but the number of heads taken is meant to exaggerate his prowess and as of yet untested courage. Original with kantei (documentation) available.

    A-Shinken-Quote Request

    As much as we would like to fully automate the Shinken purchasing process for your convenience, the fact is that identifying your needs and matching them to the appropriate smith takes great communication and must be a thorough process.  We don't believe that this can be done simply by showing you a pretty picture of a pre-existing sword that might not reveal all the information needed to make a good puchase decision.  It might not even be available at time of purchase.

    We will ask some basic questions which when answered will probably lead to more questions once the dialogue begins...

    Here are the first steps towards building your dream shinken:

    Complete the pull down menu to the right.

    Submit the quote:  NO PAYMENT INFORMATION WILL BE REQUIRED!  We will review your submission and respond within 2 business days.  Your submission will generally categorize your needs and allow us to develop more specific questions and/or comments to consider.  

    We will then match the smith to your specifications and target budget.

    Upon acceptance of terms by both you as the client and the smith, we will formalize the process, generate an invoice and the smith will accept the commission.
