Query by Serim: What is the greatest book for a start Japanese sword collector?
My father has recently bought his 1st Japanese samurai sword and I am searching to buy him a handbook about them for Christmas. I’m searching for a good guide that presents specifics in the diverse types of swords, how to appropriately consider treatment of the swords and a thing not too expensive. Any suggestions?
