A work of art can be many things besides actual pictures or paintings. Swords is a big collector item for many people. So just as with a painting or other collection item you want it to last forever.
Look not touch
Now it is not as bad as it sounds. Many times people want to touch every thing. Now it is better not to touch but it can as long as you are careful.
First off your Blades Pro will be sharp so handle with care. Watch children closely when they are around. Next if the blade has to be touch make sure it does not rust from the acids in our fingers. This is done by oiling after it is touched.
Prevent nicks and notches by not banging against stuff. Now I know that it was bought to be seen not used but it can get damaged even if it is not used. Make sure when showing and handling to not drop.
Make sure that you are storing it correctly. Many times we want to display the katana. This can be done as long as you do it properly. So make sure that the stand that you get is steady and can handle the weight. If you are doing several levels then make sure that you take all the weight into consideration. There are also covers that you can put over the blades to give extra protection.
You want to be sure that you can cherish the work of art for years to come. Make sure that if you are wanting to keep it in the family that you care for it. It only takes a couple of minutes for it to last a lifetime. Make sure that you are following all the rules of thumb when it comes to oiling as well as storing.
