Sword Image Identification
This a new system that uses computer image recognition to try to assist you in idenitifying your sword.
It will provide images of what it thinks are possible matches. The correct match may not be the first and some may seem very different from your sword.
It will primarily only match official military patterns athough it may provide 'very brief' information on other styles. We do not provide any identification guides for Japanese swords.
If you do not find a match please use our established database searches, which has been used by collectors for over 20 years with great sucess.
For best results
As it is computer intelligence it cannot identify very small differences between similar patterns, therefore the results should be used as a guide to steer you in the right direction. Once you have a close match look at this website and others and learn about the pattern to see if it matches exactly and what alternatives there may be.
Good luck and I hope you find this tool useful.
