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.
