You aren't allowed to carry them around even if you are a true descendant
of a samurai family (something like that). These swords can do an amazing
amount of damage, that is hard to grasp if you haven't actually seen it.
Putting a fine sword on display though is dandy for a corporation etc.

As far as the chrome goes, I hesitate to even clean some of the things I
find, ie I have a old copy of the Complete Service Manual for American
Flyer trains with what looks like some paint or whitewash type stuff
splattered on the cover. Better to sell it as is to a collector who knows
what they are doing.
