Is it against the law to own Katana swords surrounded by the UK?

I know it is illegal to sell or trade them, but what if you owned them beforehand the ban came into effect?
Answers:
samuri and other curved blades over 50cm are prohibited, at hand are exceptions like genuine Japanese swords and other things. If you own a sword it is criminal to have it in a public place, so hold it at home and dont be a naughty boy, you will be fine. If you bought the sword before the restriction, then its exempt, it would only be banned if you took it too a public place.

Most swords are illegal as they are classified as offensive missiles.
