Conditions of Sale for Antique Arms:

We personally select every antique sword advertised and guarantee them to be at least 100 years of age. As a martial artist with over 30 years experience in both European and Asian martial arts, owner, Scott M. Rodell, selects swords not only for their beauty and collectablity, but for their utility in modern form practice. However, it is not recommended to use an antique sword for test cutting practice. Martial artists may purchase with the confidence that our swords will meet your expectations. Please keep in mind that while these pieces are sold as art, they were originally made as weapons. At times, swords are sold in polished condition. That means that they may be sharper than razor sharp and can easily cut. When handling any piece you alone are responsible for your safety and the safety of those around you. All antique items are sold ‘as is’. If any item is in anyway altered by the purchaser, the sale if final, no exceptions. This includes polishing a window on any blade.
