Real Katana are super expensive, take about 1 to 2 years to make, and the master sword makers are dieing off.  US Customs should recognize them as art, but being government just might in some benighted way consider them subject to the Trade in Arms pact if they are of recent manufacture.  Genuine antiques are a no brainer if properly authenticated, but recently there is a Katana repatriation movement developing, so you might be prohibited from exporting a true national treasure.


Yep, you're better off finding one in the US and WWII Katanas are rare to be 100% complete with matching numbers.
