Most common mistakes when you buying a sword

When you are buying a sword you are investing in a stunning display piece or a magnificently crafted weapon. Those are the main reasons customers purchase a sword, but sometimes they make a mistake. Here are couple of reasons where we are purchasing the wrong sword.

Decorative or Functional

When you are purchasing a sword, you have to understand the difference between decorative and functional sword. A functional sword must have razor-sharp and crafted steel, so he can slice through grass mats or any different objects. And if you are looking for a sword that is more safe, then you are looking for false-edged blade. You can use them as a unique wall decoration in your home or office, it’s a great piece of art.

Display of Sword

If you are going to buy a sword, you should already know the way you are going to display it. It would be really sad, if your brand new sword is not displayed in a appropriate way, and suffer some minor damage. Actually, if you are planing to let him hang on 2 nails on your wall, it’s not a good idea. So the point is that when you are going to buy your new sword, it’s more then a needed to buy a display stand or display unit where the sword would stay. If you are going to purchase a display for multiple swords, you can rely on it for any upcoming swords in your gallery.

Often Expectations

Most often people wanna use the swords for tasks they wasn’t meant to do. If you are expecting from a low carbon display sword to cut a tree, or any similar object, then better don’t buy one. The high carbon steal axe is meant for that kind of tasks, or any other high carbon steel functional sword. So one more time, display sword is not for that kind of action, that’s why it’s called display sword.


If you are already sure that you are going to buy a sword, don’t let the cheap swords to be your main choose. Yes, they are more affordable, and from financial perspective the right deal for you, but they don’t offer the quality as the other more expensive swords have. So, sometimes is better to pay more, and be fully satisfied with your product, then to pay less, and regret for that decision.

Blade Maintenance

So, don’t buy a good quality sword, and just like that let it languish. If you have a fully functional, high carbon steel sword, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to take a good care for it. If you perform with your sword over and over again, the blade have to be properly sharpen and cleaned after the action. That’s why you will need to buy a sword cleaning kit, and a sharpener as well, so your sword always be in a best shape, and never fail you. Take a good care for your sword, and he will for you.
