not just for display Reviewed by on Mar 05, 2016   5 out of 5

first let me say that i’ve only had this for a few hrs. the scabbard was broke badly in shipping but the sword remained rock solid and it's very sharp and well balanced. the lining in the blade is gorgeous. the ray skin might be fake. i did a simple experiment were the peg is in the hadel, i used tweezers to pull off a small pice. unlike normal ray skin with is hared and krusty, this stretched and snapped like rubber and it’s white underneath too, so it may be real juts sprayed with some coating that makes it soft who knowes. as for the other review about the lack of full tang, "display only" i got this off wikipedia (A full tang extends the full length of the grip-portion of a handle, versus a partial tang which does not. A full tang may or may not extend the full width of the handle.) it's done for handel strength and or balances too. if you want a sword that is functional this is a good one “i wonder if i can just send back the skabber to be replaced, i don't want to let the sword go.” lol

Beautiful!!!! Reviewed by David Soderquist on Mar 18, 2015   5 out of 5

I bought two of these to see what they looked like. I do my own castings and wanted to see how good these were. I was very impressed with these. The Damascus is beautiful and from what I could tell the tang was forged and not welded, it also goes an appropriate distance down the handle to be considered full tang (3 - 4 inches shy of the end). I like the feel and they are beautiful overall but I am going to refit them not because I am dissatisfied with them but that is the reason I bought them.

Good sword for $$$ Reviewed by Steve on Jan 12, 2015   4 out of 5

I am overall very pleased with this sword. It is a real Damascus blade and reasonably sharp. My only concern is with the so called genuine ray skin wrap on the handle. It appears to me to be some kind of rubber. Still for the money spent it is a very good purchase

I purchased this one with the Odachi Black Damascus Sword. These are both True Works of Art.

Beautiful and functional Reviewed by David Canoy on Mar 09, 2014   5 out of 5

Beautiful sword, the oil sheen is subtle but visible and the blade is beautifully shaped and honed. Someone stated the blade was not full tang - I feel the blade all the way down the handle - I don't know how this could be proven short of deconstruction but I highly doubt that is the case. the construction is solid, it feels like a million bucks! Shinwa does not have a reputation for skimping on quality and I will not be the one to say they did so. A great buy.

This piece is Beautiful to behold although I would never reccomend this sword for any practical use. I expected this sword to come fully tanged but this wasnt so. I digress, this is still a great buy.

Nodachi "a favorite" Reviewed by Kevin Stutler on Mar 02, 2012   5 out of 5

I bought this sword when it was more expensive (now it is even a better bargain) This is the best looking Damascus Sword of six that I now own- and it is a GIANT SWORD. The Tsuba (guard) is great looking- it reminds me of an "oriental" St.Michael tossing "Old Nick" out'n of da Holy Place! I pull this out just to show it off to friends- and they don't impress easily. One nag'-I don't like the same' (rayskin) if it is genuine the dye is too thick to see the grain well. Functionally gorgeous !!!

gorgeous! Reviewed by scriley on Sep 20, 2011   5 out of 5

I purchased this sword for my husband and when it arrived I must say it was breathtaking! It was very long, being only 5 feet tall I had considerable difficulty getting it out of the sheath, but for a tall man it would be perfect. While I am no sword expert, I did my homework purchasing this blade and I am not sorry I did, for the money it is a thing to behold. Highly recommend.

A true Masterpiece! Reviewed by Drogaria on Aug 15, 2011   5 out of 5

I collect swords and let me just say, this sword is a wonder to behold. Razor sharp, tightly woven grip, beautiful guard, this is a sword worthy of battle in days of yore! The delivery was exceptionally fast as well.
