The Blades Pro for many is a work of art. So we all want to keep it beautiful and perfect forever. However, if the sword is not treated correctly then it will not last very long. Here are some key things that must be done in order to maintain your sword and the beauty it holds.
You can use synthetic or natural oils. Oiling the blade will prevent rust from forming. Many times touching the blade is the main cause of rust since our skin has acid in it. Now if you are using the sword you will need to oil after each use. If the sword is just for looks then it needs to be done every three months.
Now it can be hard when showing the blade off to friends that they do not touch the blade. If the blade must be touched then the oiling process will need to be done every time it is touched. It only takes about five minutes so no need to panic.
Do Not Bang
I know that it looks really cool when we see banging swords in sparring. However, this is very bad for the katana. Not only will it be an eyesore from all the notches it will make, it will also make loss of value. For safety purposes I would not even recommend using this sword in this manner. These swords are very sharp and should always be handled with care.
Make sure that you are treating your katana properly so that your work of art will remain perfect for years to come. It does not take much effort for this to be accomplished. All that is needed is a little time and effort. Make sure that you are present when people are admiring so that you can over see and make sure that it is being treated like you wish.
