Major Sword Shows in the U.S.
There are major token kai (sword exhibitions) in the US every year. At each show there is a large showroom filled with vendors with everything from swords to fittings to trinkets and clothing. There are always displays and educational seminars as well. Come see the real thing. I am usually at the shows in the US as well as the "official" NBTHK show in Japan in November.
Postponed until further notice. Please check the show website at the link shown for future information.
