Tips for learning about Japanese Swords:
1) Buy Books: Start with John Yumoto's The Samurai Sword: a handbook . This book will give you a good background in all the terminology that needs to be learned.
2) Download the information from the NBTHK American Branch website at www.nbthk-ab.org on how to handle and look at a Japanese sword.
3) Join a Japanese sword club near you, go to the sword shows that are held around the country. There's nothing better than being able to see and hold the artwork to learn about it.
4) Most importantly learn what not to buy. Learn how to look for all the faults in a blade.
