Tips on how to start with your replica anime sword collection

Origami

Samurai

Manga

These are just some of the things that Japan is famous for. Another pop culture that has gained popularity, not only in Japan but across the world, is the world of Anime.

Anime is a style of Japanese animation which started way back in 1917. It has evolved since then and is so popular that there are a lot of TV shows that are being created which are inspired by the Anime culture. Many Hollywood movies have also been produced and have become blockbuster hit like Transformer, Astro Boy, and more that is based from the original Japanese animation.

If you are an Anime fan, one way of showing your love for Japanese Anime is by starting your anime sword collection. Collecting the original swords can be really expensive especially since Anime started almost 100 years ago so some of these original swords can be considered as antique and hard to find already. But there is no need to fret as there are a lot of stores where you can find replica sword for sale. These replicas are made from highest quality material that it can pass as an authentic sword.
For those who want to begin with their replica sword collection, here are a few tips that can help them get started:

  1. Only buy from reputable store. There are a lot of online stores where you can buy different swords to add to your collection but you have to check first the reputation of the seller. Buy only from stores that use good quality material to ensure the durability and craftsmanship of the replicas. When buying online, check for customer feedback to see if the store can be trusted or not.
  2. Do your research. Before purchasing a replica of a zelda sword for example, do your research so you will know the exact look and material of the original sword. If you are armed with this knowledge, you will be able to compare the quality of the replica with the authentic sword so you can make better judgment.
  3. Checked the material used to make the replica. When buying replica sword, make sure that the material use in making the replica is close to the original. The blade for example should be made from carbon steel to make it more realistic.
  4. Learn how to care for the sword. Since sword collection is an investment, you should learn how to take good care of your collection so it will stay in its perfect condition. If possible, purchase display cases to protect the sword from humidity and temperature to prevent rust. If you can’t afford to purchase display cases yet, make sure that you clean your sword often using non-organic oil, especially after somebody touches the blade of the sword.

Sword collection can be fun and it need not be expensive if you know how to find the best store where you can get high quality replica sword.

Protecting Ourselves from Payment Fraud and Identity Theft with a Secure Wallet

Wow, how many times we have heard stories about people being asked by their credit companies to pay an ample amount of money in their credit cards eventhough they have not used it? I have friends gone mad when they learned that their credit cards have been used by others in purchasing even though the crooks don;t have my friend’s credit cards on hand. Their credit cards are have been “stolen” thorough what they call credit card skimming. They learned that their cards might have been skimmed on a skimmer apparatus by employees of a restaurant. They credit card’s info are stolen and they managed to make a new fake credit card t be used.

Anyway, not that credit cards’ info can now be stolen without being skimmed because, those cards with RFID (radio frequency identification) chips can be read by machines and your data can be stolen. Wow.  We need to buy  rfid blocking wallets from secure wallet to protect ourselves from that modus operandi.
