Numerous sellers on ebay and other online auctions have been stealing graphics and other material from this site. I am not a dealer. I do not sell on ebay or other online auctions. I do not endorse any online auction sale. If you find a seller using material from this site, I would appreciate it if you would report them to the appropriate fraud department. If I find a seller stealing material from this site, I will report them for theft of intellectual property, stealing graphics, copyright violations, etc. Nearly all sellers doing this are in fact selling fake or misrepresented swords, not authentic Japanese swords. If you find an auction that has stolen material or graphics, chances are 99% you are bidding on a fake or misrepresented sword or tsuba. Do not use graphics from nor link to this site for any commercial purpose, auction or otherwise! Sellers be warned and buyers be aware.
