Great Sword Reviewed by Edmond T Siwecki on May 27, 2016   5 out of 5

This is the Second swordI bought that had some Bad Reviews! Why? Because Dan Voges of Nebraska explained some failures and he highly recommended the products! I have Many other Shinwa swords and all are well made so I have to agree with Dan in his acessments. These are Swords, not baseball bats, as such they are made to slice, not Hack! Thanks Dan, because you can explain Quality, I now own another Fine Sword!

Excellant Sword Reviewed by DANIEL VOGES on Jan 23, 2015   5 out of 5

I have sold a few of these swords and have one I practice with often I bent the blade once, it's easy to bend any blade, as you go to strike if you turn your wrist even a little bit you won't strike square with the blade that is how you bend a blade all you have to do is bend it back. This double edge sword is great, when it comes to double edge swords the Black Dragon is lighter than most, this makes the Black Dragon a very swift sword. If you are a true Swordsman you will Love this sword. Thank you, Daniel of Nebraska.

I own four swords and they are great if you people that say you do not care for what you got? Then spend 5000.00 on up for a highly ture made sword and then you won't have to complain.

do waste your money Reviewed by Bruce on Mar 25, 2014   1 out of 5

This is my first order placed with this company and the item is not worth it . The handle wrapping glue is breaking down and unraveling the glue is all over scabbard and blade it looks like dried fish scales and wood on the scabbard is paper thin.their is nothing about this item which is not a negative.

good deal Reviewed by lowell bradley on Feb 24, 2014   4 out of 5

I got this sword to replace one that was stolen from me. I like the weight and balance of it. As far as it being Damascus steel, I can't tell. But it seams that the coating would come off verry easy. It is far from Razer sharp, like advertised. If I sharpen it , I would likely have to use gun bluing to make the sharpened edge black again.but I am satisfied with it for the price.

DISPLAY ONLY Reviewed by Alexander on Feb 11, 2014   1 out of 5

I tested this sword on a plastic bottle full water and it bent almost 90 degrees it looks good but it is NOT battle ready as advertised.

Shinwa Black Dragon Katana Sword Damascus Reviewed by Robert on Feb 06, 2014   1 out of 5

I can not believe you called this damascus steal. Lightly took this very sharp sword , from one end to the other and checked the flex of the blade. Whoa! This is not damascus. Why don't you try it! What's left of this $130 piece of garbage is in a junk pile, and will be taken to the dump this spring. You people know better than this.

Great sword Reviewed by Adam sanchez on Dec 26, 2013   4 out of 5

recently bought this sword and i gotta say its pretty good not as sharp as i wanted and theres small wood chips in the scabbard but over all its great. You can tell its real damascus steel ( mine came with red and black streaks ) and its strong I wacked it as hard as i could agenst a tree ( aslo capting of the wrestling team so im not weak) and didnt break or scratsh when i pulled it out all there was was some weird tree goo This is a sword that in the olden days soldiers in japan were give cause they were relyable and not to much to manufacture so if you're looking for A good sword thats not to much this is a sword for you

POOR QUALITY Reviewed by Clint P on Dec 23, 2013   1 out of 5

I got this sword on a BOGO sale, not very impressed. This sword screamed poor quality! When held up to a light you can see many imperfections in the blade,and my handle on both swords were very loose and the fittings were not what I expected, again poor quality. For a $129.99 sword this is bad, maybe worth the money for $19.99. Cheap storage box made out of thin plywood that you can crush with one hand. Used one sword to test as in the videos and the blade bent beyond all repair, I then sanded down one side of the bent blade and to my amazement the "Damascus" markings disappeared. Just regular steel. I've seen good reviews of this sword so hopefully I received a cheap knockoff that BUDK did not know about. Returning the unused sword for an exchange for something worth $129.99. I've always received good quality blades from here so this is hopefully just an oversight.

Well built Reviewed by Luis D. on Aug 25, 2013   5 out of 5

This is a well built sword for the price. The fit and finish is more than adequate. I'm amazed at the quality for the price. It is a heavy sword, which is good since it will be a practice piece. The steel is beautiful. I suggest since this is a black steel, you shine a flash light or bright light on the blade to really bring out the beauty of this sword. Since this is a double edged sword, extra care and precautions should be taken. This is definitely not a toy or a novice sword. All in all this is a great purchase.
