How to hold a samurai katana sword correctly?

Posted by zhang 07/12/2018 1 Comment(s) Swords Buyer Guide,
1. Lightly align the palm root depression with the tiger's mouth above the handle ridge.
 
 
 
 
2. Grasp it gently with the radian of handle. Do not hold tightly. The front hand does not touch fuchi, and back hand does not touch kashira, and distance between two hands is 1 to 2 fingers wide, avoid rusting or wearing of metal fittings.
 
 
 
3. Check to see if the blade is naturally in line with arm. If your first three fingers exert too much force, the wrist will be bent by muscles traction and sword blade can not be in line with your arm.

I find it interesting that you said that one should hold a samurai katana sword 1 to 2 fingers wide in order to avoid rusting and wearing of metal fittings. Reading this article reminded me that it's my uncle's birthday next week. With that, I thought about buying one for him to display on his man cave. The question is: where should one buy it online or offline?
