The authenticity of the swords will be in the tang of the handle. Can u remove the tang from the handle. Is it a full tang or half tang. Once u remove the sword from the handle the sword should have the master folders name written on it. It will not be in English. I would love to c who made the sword for I am a huge sword collector my self. If u cannot remove the handle of the sword that's a huge indicator that it is fake. How many times has it been folded. Just because it is sharp does not mean it is real either. Any wet stone will make steel sharp. But with real Samaria and Katana u don't use any kind of stone. What do u use to polish the piece. Like I said huge sword guy. Nice to meet another sword collector. I have pommel guards that run 6 to 7 thousand just for the guard. No sword at all.

The swords are full tang. I clean and oil my Katanas monthly the traditional way. Both swords are made in the Islands by reputable forges. They both cost a lot of money. I have practiced Iaido for 22 years and have taught my children. I use choji oil with rice paper. The folding is what made the Katanas expensive. The blades sing in the air. Nothing like the sound of the Hi swooshing through the air. The same is made of ray skins. The Ito and sageo is made of silk. The furnishings are brass. I do not know why you made the statement they are not real when you know nothing of the swords. Please explain. If you are asking if my swords are an original heirloom, well of course not. You would not use one to practice and fight with. They are priceless. Look at Katanas collected by US troops after world war 2, they are very plain looking. No Samurai would take an heirloom into battle. Oh, I am not a collector, I am a practitioner. My Katanas do not hang on walls to rust, they are respected in the old cultural traditions.

Very nice swords then. They looked similar to factory line swords from the pic but ur right it's a pic. I'm not looking at them in real life. My swords r not hung either. So they r not battle ready. The swords I have r 100% battle ready. I would not fight with them because of the price but they could be. However a few of my pieces were used for battle in their day.

8mm mouser, marlin 22 and a hi-point 380. I have two steal
made all black machete' when the ammo runs low or when
needed for stealth mode. My cousin owns the top AR and the SKS.

This is my zombie medicine. Yes, I know you guys with the 30 round magazines can reload faster than me. But this is old school medicine, 500 grains, and ball and buck, and from what I have seen, zombies are not that fast

I guess my wrist rocket sling shot with 50 cal lead ball should do the job on slow moving zombies. And no worry about running out of ammo, if I do I can always use rocks. (LOL)

You better hope the bands don't break or a pack of walkers don't corner you.
