Absolutely Beautiful " Sword of the Samurai " by the Franklin Mint Collection
You are bidding on a real nice collectable sword. This sword was a gift to my husband several years ago as he is an avid Martial Artist. We're downsizing and no longer have the room for many of our collectables. The blade is somewhat sharp and is made of stainless steel. The cloth embossing is beautiful and the detail is quite intricate. The sword comes with a stand that is made of black wood. T is real gold inlay and the blade is very detailed as well. I tried to capture this in all the pictures taken. This exact sword is being sold for close to $500.00. I cannot find the COA though it's probably still in a box somew that's never been unpacked when we moved into our new home. Rest assured though, this is the real deal as far as it being a Franklin Mint collectable. For the sword lover, this will make any person proud to display! T's so much fine detail to this sword, that it's difficult to think of everything to say about it. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
A couple of things, this sword has never been used for sword fighting and I don't believe it's meant to be. You could poke your eye out kid! Speaking of kids, I'd keep this out of reach of the young ones and perhaps even not so resposible older kids. I guess you could say, Not recommended for anyone under 18. In case you are wondering about the dog, well she's not for sale. She just loves mugging the camera! Besides, the shipping cost for her would have to be freight shipping!
Alright, I'm over the sillyness now and all of that aside, I'm sure you'll love this sword for it has such depth and charactor. Also, the price is right. I don't believe these are that common. I may be wrong, but when I did a search on the net, I could only find one like this for sale on the web and it was going for the price mentioned above.
So without further ado, Thanks for stopping by and Happy Bidding!
