Japanese Sword Appraisals

When my husband died, he left two Japanese swords. I knew very little about them and approached Armoury Antiques and Militaria to see if they could translate the inscriptions. Neil did an appraisal of each sword, and his research surpassed my expectations. He translated and explained the inscriptions, gave the swords a cultural context, and provided valuations. For the modern sword, he gave an interesting summary of the maker's background and importance. From the start, Neil and Angela were friendly, helpful and made everything easy. I sent photos and Neil did the appraisals in record time. The price was definitely value for money. I would highly recommend Armoury Antiques and Militaria to anyone who wants to find out more about their sword. The information about Kobayashi Sadateru, the maker of the modern sword, is very detailed and interesting. I knew very little about the swords and am very grateful for the time you have taken to research them.

You are indeed an expert and I appreciate your help!
