About Us

The To-Ken society of Great Britain is an organisation dedicated to the study and preservation of Japanese swords, fittings and armour. We have been in existence since 1964 and enjoy an international reputation for our studious approach to the subject. Our membership includes corresponding members from all five continents.

Amongst our membership we have a number of restorers who are independent workers rather than being employed by the Society. These include tsuka-maki shi (hilt wrapper), Saya-shi (scabbard maker), habaki maker, tsuba-makers and a polisher. Their help and advice is always available. For those who require work done in Japan, our close contacts which number some of the best restorers and artisans in the world may be utilised.
