Georgous Sword Reviewed by on Nov 09, 2016   5 out of 5

This is my first Damascus blade and I love it. I knew it wouldn't be razor sharp, so that wasn't a problem with me. Is everything I expected and more.

Nice sword to say the least. I have several authentic vintage Japanese swords and although it is not up to those standards or to those of a modern combat blade I believe it is an exceptional value for the price. My sword and it's fitting are nice and tight. The blade is sharp but not razor sharp. A beautiful display piece that would be functional in a pinch.

Beautiful blade Reviewed by on Apr 06, 2016   5 out of 5

This is my second Shinwa sword. Now im no expert and have read the reviews. The blade i got was "fecus brown" (as another reviewer wrote). It is BEAUTIFUL!! You can see layers of steel from black to bronze & brown. I thought the blade would be black layered and im sure some are. I love the blade i got!! The handle and tusba are tight. I cant tell you in words how nice this sword really is. It will be on my wall with my first Shinwa. I would also recommend a cleaning kit as it will need to be cleaned when you get it. Also remember this type of blade will need to be cleaned and oiled periodically to prevent rust. But thats just fun stuff to me. Thank you Budk. WARNING! Sword Collecting Can Be Addictive.. ;)

Impressed Reviewed by Glen Stockdall on Apr 01, 2016   5 out of 5

This is my first battle ready sword and I'm impressed with it. I've always wanted a real katana ever since reading the book and seeing the movie "Shogan" as a kid.

The Damascus pattern, on mine at least, is a beautiful black and red. Very good fit and finish. I don't plan on using/abusing it so I can't comment on its strength or durability.

Shinwa Damascus apparently gets waves in the cutting edge and bends when it hits anything harder than leather. I literally bent my blade hitting the broad side of the blade against the stalk of an umbrella plant. Great show pieces, not meant for any actual use; cut things at your own risk!

so, the handle was amazing, the tsuba made me happy & the sheathe was awesome... Then I pulled the blade out. For 1, the sheathe must've been badly made because every time I unsheathe the blade, sawdust is on the blade. Plus, the blade isn't black like they said... I was so excited to own a beautiful blade that resembled black wood... But it was like a feces brown. Not pleasant to look at... At all. Nevermind that the sword isn't actually Damascus steel but rather just folded steel... Damascus is stronger. But yea, I wish the sword could've at least been the right color

Pretty Good Reviewed by Ryan Evernham on Jun 08, 2015   4 out of 5

Great sword for the price. Only three small complaints. First, it was not as sharp as I hoped. I'm going to try to sharpen it but with only a small sharpening stone it will be difficult. Second,the hand guard was not sturdy when I fist got it. It rattled and shifted. It was an easy fix though with putting glue in it to keep it in the right position. The guard has been great since. Lastly, the wrapping on the handle is loose, it shifts around a little. Not a big problem though as it is easy to move back and it is still a nice feel and easy to grip. I really like this sword, I would recommend it to others. As I expected, it has small flaws as it is inexpensive for a nice fully functional sword, but is still very usable and very sturdy other than the guard. If the guard moves around a little, don't worry. Just try some glue. It is still a very good sword and there is nothing else to complain about. Good shipping speed too.

Great Sword Reviewed by Thomas White on May 27, 2015   5 out of 5

I bought this sword about a year ago and it came extremely sharp. All the swords I have bought from Bud K have had good sharp edges with the exception of the barbarian sword which I know would not be a sharp edge. If I wanted to make the edge better and sharper I could hone the edge but as they are the edge is plenty sharp. If I was not happy with the item I bought I would call customer service and get the item replaced.

It's.... ok... Reviewed by Tyler Stallard on Apr 24, 2015   2 out of 5

Well... The blade seems stable and has a good weight to it... The metal isn't black and just painted and the blade I got had a HUGE flaw. Near the tip there was a very small nik of metal sticking out awkwardly to the side. Regardless, it can still pierce with a thrust extremely easily with almost no effort unlike a slash. So doesn't cut very well but I'd imagine that can be fixed by sharpening it which might take off some of the black paint. The sheath is made of wood and the wrapping is pretty poor... Dunno if it was just the one I got in particular that was pretty shitty... That being said... I wouldn't pay 90 bucks for it. More like around 40 or so.
