Do you make authentic Japanese swords?

Our swords aren't made in Japan. Otherwise you would pay at least $ 7000 for our swords. But we use the same traditional techniques. All our swords are handmade, differentially tempered and custom made to your wishes. So do we make authentic swords? Yes we do. Actually we make very good authentic swords.

.

But your swords are less expensive. Where's the catch?

Actually, the catch is in the Japanese swords. Laws in Japan make it very difficult to become a sword smith. And those who are, can only make a few swords per year. This makes these swords difficult to come by. And ofcourse the smith has to earn his money on only a few swords.
