Frequently Asked Questions
How do I price my books?
Some books are easy: I've sold enough copies of Hawley's Japanese Swordsmiths Revised in the last few years to know a fair price, but most of the books I get in are one of a kind for me and I have to research their values. I usually check the other online Nihonto book sellers and do a google search of the title, and note the prices of all copies I find for sale. With rare exceptions I set my price less than the lowest price I find. It's great to have this amazing library but I need to sell books.
Do I offer discounts for members of Nihonto Message Board or other sword study groups?
Consider my answer to the 1st question above, and consider also that I try to be fair to the people from whom I buy these books, and you'll understand that my margin for profit is small and that I have to be careful with discounts. Doesn't hurt to ask, though. Let me know what you have in mind; I'll tell you what I can do.
