Buying from aoi-art

Hey all!

Any opinions on purchasing from Aoi-art, or e-sword? I would like to know any and everything, positive and negative before buying. Hope someone out there can help.


opinion only

Don't know who "e-sword" is. Do you mean (Chris Bowen)? If so, I can recommend him, although I have never actually done business with him. I believe he has a very positive reputation, and is a foremost expert on modern smiths.
Aoi-art has been around a long time also. Don't know of any problems. Don't know if their pricing is good/bad or not...


Thank you

Thanks Pete!

The other site (e-sword) is at but I think I'm staying with aoi-art. Feels safer some how based on what I've read so far.
