Antique Japanese Swords are usually defined as any weapon in the Nihonto family of blades made thoughout the Heian Period from 782 to 1184 and the Meiji Period from 1868 to 1912. The majority of surviving Antique Japanese Swords come from the Edo Period from 1600 to 1867 containing the Shinto Era between 1597 to 1780 which translates to "New Sword Era", and the Shinshinto Era between 1781 to 1876 which translates to "New New Sword Era". After many periods of war throughout Japanese history the art of sword making deteriorated and it was not until the Shinshinto Era that sword smiths returned to the forging of superior quality blades after rediscovering several lost techniques. As quickly as the Era began however the Meiji Restoration was passed which banned the possession of all Antique Japanese Swords as arms except to a certain privileged class. As a result the ancient master sword smiths began to conceal their forged blades in simple walking sticks so that the soul of the samurai would live on, and the art of superior sword making would survive and not be lost again.
