The word antique is usually defined as an item which is at least 50 to 100 years old, however Antique Samurai Swords are typically classified as swords that were forged by a sword smith prior to the 1900's. The reason for the distinction is that officers of the Imperial Japanese Army and Imperial Japanese Navy between 1934 and the end of World War II had a sword designated as part of their uniforms, the Shin Gunto, and although these swords do technically fall into the Antique Samurai Swords category based on age, they were all machine made. Another typical distinction of Antique Samurai Swords is a signed tang, the portion of the blade concealed under the tsuka handle, however some manufactured military swords were signed as well, so identifying the actual symbols or translating the markings is extremely important in dating true Antique Samurai Swords. Most dealers agree that dating the rust on the tang is the best way to properly classify the sword. Modern swords will have a metallic grey tang with a little rust, but older Antique Samurai Swords will have very rusted tangs that range from brown to almost black in color.
