very very pleased! Reviewed by aaron waltz on Jan 16, 2016   5 out of 5

For starters for the money you absolutely cant go wrong... It is a very very nice sword, it has a solid feeling and well finished... Theres no rattles or bad gaps, And the Handle and saya finish is deep and glossy and is flawless I'm very surprised and impressed with the craftmanship of this piece. I really was not expecting it to be of this level of quality for the price i expected it to be just decent not great. There is one big problem and that is it is so beautiful i dont want to use it! So its going on the sword rack on display next to my Hanwei and Ronin and others, its defiantly worthy of hanging next to swords of much higher prices. Did i mention its drop dead beautiful!

Very Surprised Reviewed by Frank Calhoun on Nov 17, 2015   5 out of 5

I read the comments before purchase and I was very unsure...I thought it was a good buy, Whats the worst that could happen, Right? Got my package today and was very happy. The Blade was very sharp at the tip and the edges felt like they could do damage. Im not sure if it was full tang or not , and the scabbard had glue and woodchips inside. It didn't bother me. This is my first Purchase from BUDK and a Shinwa product. I will be returning for the holidays :)

Poor Quality Control Reviewed by les brumwell on Nov 10, 2015   2 out of 5

Sword arrived in a crushed sword box, NOT FROM SHIPPING as the shipping box was fine. The red sword box was crushed BEFORE it was shipped. Result was a fingernail size chunk of the handle missing and several marks throughout the entire sword. Other than that it was sharp enough and fit scabbard OK. Sad how someone would ship a very visibly damaged container with ZERO consideration for the costumer. Not worth the effort and cost of returning. I have bought ALOT from BudK but this was the worst experience.

True Review Reviewed by Prof.D.Shelton Parker on Sep 19, 2014   4 out of 5

I would have given this 5 stars, if it had not a saya that that was so loose the blade fell out. But, I do have a fix for this problem. Coat the bare wood inside the saya with SUPER GLUE. Be very careful to keep the glue inside the saya. You may have to do this more than once to build it up to the point the blade will not fall out. Do not put the blade in before it is dry ! If you do, it will never come out.

Always wanted one of these Reviewed by dnaz@comcast.net on Sep 21, 2013   4 out of 5

I'm glad I waited for what I really wanted in a Katoshi sword cane. Love the red, and I must say that the blade is more red than black, but that looks great with the wood. This sword was not as sharp as the other shinwa blades I own and that was mildly disapointing, so no 5 stars. Beautiful but will need a little sharpning.

If you are looking for a real funtional Chinese Sword (although it's said Japanese), this is it. It will be a sword you will be pround to own with very affordable price.
