Welcome to Nihonto Art. Although we live for all aspects of the art of the Samurai, the word Nihonto itself means “Japanese sword”, which is our specialty. Founder Nick Ricupero has fostered this lifelong passion as both a collector and dealer. His high regard for such a timeless art means that each piece is hand picked and carefully selected. We make an effort to search out the most interesting and unique items we can find and as a result have a very diverse inventory spanning the past eight centuries. All of our artifacts are directly sourced from Japan. If there is a particular item that you would like to acquire and does not appear on Nihonto Art, please let us know and we will seek it out for you. Preservation of these artifacts through education is of utmost importance to us and it is our pleasure to help collectors find the piece of history that awaits them along their journey.
