i love the sword Reviewed by Timothy De La Rosa on Dec 26, 2014   5 out of 5

I am happy with the sword I cut throw thick bamboo and it still holds its edge so I recommend that do your homework on how to take care of a katana and warning its very sharp I already cut myself cleaning it!

Very Sharp and Pretty Reviewed by Frank Hobson on Oct 25, 2014   5 out of 5

I bought this I found the quality excellent, I have read some of the other reviews that gave 1 or 2, I have never owned a 10,000 dollar sword but this one feels like a million bucks, the handle has ray skin which give a good hand feel. Blade very good looking, I gave a hard wack at a bale of hay to see if it would break, I think with this blade if your strong you definitely could cut a person or animal in two. for the price, hard to beat

Not sharp? Reviewed by Kim on Aug 29, 2014   2 out of 5

Dual, Dual. Razor sharp? I had to grind on wheel and scratch up etching to get slight edge

Not Damascus Reviewed by Robert on Jan 27, 2014   1 out of 5

What a disapointment. Took it out of the box and case. What a beautiful sword. Very sharp. A few weeks later, I checked the spring in the metal of this sword. I held carefully one end and the other, expecting the sword to return to it's true shape. Damascus? Not a chance! Very disapointed.

Not a Katana Reviewed by Nick A. on Dec 26, 2013   2 out of 5

The sword is beautiful and well crafted. My wife bought this for me as a gift to practice kendo. The only reason I give it two stars is because I debate that this is not a katana as it claims. This weapon is double-edged and straight while a katana by description has a single edged, curved blade. This more closely resembles a ninjatō.

Nice, but.. Reviewed by Isaiah on May 23, 2013   3 out of 5

Really nice, but the blade is more brown then black, almost looks like wood.. There are spots of glue on the guard, and there is a loose peg covered with glue residue on the hilt.. But a side from that I still really like it.

Beautiful sword Reviewed by Mel Hixson on Mar 30, 2013   5 out of 5

Purchased this sword for a vacant spot I had on a display stand. Thought I might as well get a piece that was also functional. Arrived quickly and in good order in a nice bag and display box. The sword is a beautiful work of art and much prettier than I expected for the reasonable price. It's sharp and well balanced but it's much too nice looking to go out and chop stuff with it. The Damascus steel with the dark black and orange tones is awesome to look at and looks as though it would definitely do a job on a target but this type of Damascus might be a bit risky to swing at any kind of medium or hard target. Overall, all the fittings are good looking, tight and seem solid, it will make a fine display, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Black Fire Reviewed by Nickolas Arnold on Jan 20, 2013   5 out of 5

I am a practicing martial artist and instructor. I am 3rd Dan in Ninjutsu, and I specialize in the sword. I have had many, many so called "battle ready" blades, and have spent a pretty penny on them all. I have NEVER held a more perfect weapon in my hands. The balance is unreal, it is light as a feather in my hand, and is has cut everything I've taken a swing at. In my opinion,(and I do know my blades) this is one of the best Swords ever forged. Thank you Shinwa, and thank you BUDK!!!!

Initial impession Reviewed by B on Oct 31, 2012   3 out of 5

The sword I received is a little flimsy, but I think I can fix it once I disassemble it. The sword I received was also completely dull, so I will have to sharpen the "f" out of it before I start whacking things with it.
