Please find below a 12-point document. This is a code of good practice, which we are confident makes sense for any collector or user of Japanese swords. It is essential for us all to acknowledge, endorse and act in accordance with these guidelines. They are set out in order that we may continue to collect and study Japanese swords with impunity and to demonstrate that we do this in a responsible and safe manner.
If you download and sign the guidelines document, and return it with a £20 subscription (£15 for the first year), to the address shown below, you will be included on the To-Ken Society’s database and issued with a membership card. Please note that our membership year runs for twelve months from April. It is also possible to obtain a life membership for £150 one-off upfront payment, which will dispense with annual membership renewals.
Memberships are renewable on an annual basis, from 6 April, for a further £15 per annum. It is possible to renew existing memberships by a bank transfer and we shall provide these to existing members upon request.
If you are in possession of a membership card, officers of the society will be able to testify, should it become necessary, that you have agreed to be bound by our guidelines. You will also, of course, be fully entitled to attend meetings and enjoy all other privileges of membership.
