Care and Maintenance
In the past owning a sword was a matter of high prestige since people’s life depended on it and last but not least it reflected the wealth and status of the owner because it had a seriously great value.
Even the fencing techniques had been developed during the years taking into consideration the quality standards of the swords.
With this introduction I just wanted to give some valuable guidance for customers about real expectations on swords.
My best maintenance advice would be to take care of swords by choosing the appropriate fencing techniques. This way you will respect your sword and also the bladesmith.
After a certain period the use of the sword will be visible on the blade.
From time to time, it is important that deeper nicks on the blade should be smoothed out with a file or grindstone as in most cases a break starts from a crack originating from a deeper nick that represents a stress point.
It is advised to clean blades with alcohol and protect against rust with oils or vaseline. In case of rusting, blades can be polished with grit paper.
