Everyone is welcome
at our meetings, you do not need to be a NCJSC member to attend.
If you have questions about a Japanese sword, or related item(s), bring
it/them to a meeting! Many knowledgeable collectors, and even a few experts,
attend our meetings and are happy to help. Meetings are a good place to
obtain many opinions with just one visit.

Please understand that we will study these items for learning purposes
as what to watch out for when buying sword, etc. Having problems, such
as excessive tiredness, flaws, damage, etc does not automatically mean
that an item is worthless because we all love these items and they all
have some redeeming value either historically or emotionally to us all.
Knowing what to look for when purchasing them will make one all the
wiser when considering value, however.
Don’t be embarrassed, bring in your “dogs” and we will take them for a
