About Us -

The principal of Nihonto Australia has been training in various martial arts, including karate, for over 20 years. His interest in Japanese swords - Nihonto - developed from there.

Since obtaining his first Japanese sword when he was 17, he has been collecting and studying nihonto.

Traveling to Japan on a regular basis allows for furthering his study of the Japanese sword with sword makers, polishers, and other experts in their fields.

Nihonto Australia can  offer genuine, authenticated antique swords and fittings from these Japanese specialists, as well from its own collection.

Nihonto Australia will also provide Iaito training swords, and shinken made specifically for martial arts training if requested, please ask.

INFORMATION AND SALES POLICY -

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OF OUR SWORDS ARE GENUINE JAPANESE SWORDS NOT IMITATIONS OR REPLICA’S.  THESE ARE AUTHENTICALLY MADE IN THE TRADITIONAL JAPANESE WAY, AS IT HAS BEEN DONE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS.  MOST ARE ANTIQUE SWORDS, SOME ARE SWORDS MADE DURING AND FOR THE WAR AND WE ALSO HAVE AT TIMES RECENTLY MADE SWORDS BY PRESENT DAY SWORD MAKERS STILL MADE IN THE TRADITIONAL MANNER HANDED DOWN THE GENERATIONS.

SOME OF THE SWORDS HAVE CERTIFICATES OF AUTHENTICITY ISSUED BY VARIOUS ORGANISATIONS   IN JAPAN, THIS IS THE OPINION OF THESE ORGANISATIONS WHO SPECIALISE IN SHINSA (SWORD APPRAISAL & JUDGING).  NORMALLY OUR SWORDS HAVE EITHER NBTHK OR NTHK CERTIFICATES, BOTH OF WHOM ARE HIGHLY RESPECTED ORGANISATIONS IN THIS FIELD. OCCASIONALLY WE DO HAVE SWORDS WITH CERTIFICATES FROM OTHER ORGANISATIONS IN JAPAN. 

SOME OF THE SWORDS ON OFFER DO NOT HAVE ANY CERTIFICATES, SOME OF THESE SWORDS CAME BACK TO AUSTRALIA AFTER  OR DURING THE WAR AS WAR TROPHIES WITH A RETURNING SERVICE MEN.  WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THE MEI (SIGNATURES) ON THESE SWORDS, AS WE HAVE NOT SUBMITTED THEM FOR SHINSA, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GENUINE.  ALSO  MODERN MADE SWORDS DO NOT COME WITH CERTIFICATES, AS CERTIFICATES CAN ONLY BE ISSUED FOR SWORDS OF WHICH THEIR MAKER HAS PASSED AWAY.

ALSO WE ARE NOT JAPANESE AND OCCASIONALLY ERRORS MAY BE MADE IN THE TRANSLATION OF A MEI OR DESCRIPTION. ITEMS ARE DESCRIBED AS ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE.
