Most Expensive Swords in the World | Top 5

This is dedicated to all the collectors across the world because we’re going to present to you the most expensive swords ever sold at an auction!

Many people out there don’t pay that much attention to this particular item, but the swords have been a crucial weapon for thousands of years.

But these swords I’m going to tell you about next aren’t ordinary swords, no way. We’re talking here about specially made swords or about the property of great historical personalities.

And I have to tell you, a sword with such an impressive historical background is a collector‘s dream!

5.13th Century Kamakura Longsword – Price: $340,000

We start this list with the 13th Century Kamakura Longsword.

The item was sold at an auction in 1992 after Dr. Walter Ames Compton passed away and his collection of swords were taken to auction.

It was then when a man named Mr. Inami bought, besides many other items, the Kamakura Longsword, a weapon also known as tachi.

I don’t even want to know how much money Mr. Inami spent at that auction given the fact that only the sword itself was $340,000!
