PERFECT for the price Reviewed by Jarren on Jan 19, 2015   5 out of 5

Folks, this is $129 Katana. So what do you expect? Well, I expected close, but probably not perfect. What I received is actually a very nice sword indeed! The blade is perfectly true, the handle and white lacquered scabbard are very nice quality and to look at. And it appears very solid. You can argue all day whether the mimicked modern Damascus forging process versus high carbon steel is better. But it doesn't matter. For $129 you will get a sweet sword that is very solid. It's mass produced so I wouldn't compare it to any true craftsman's hand-forged blade, but I'm guessing it would hold up quite well if put to the test. Beautiful black marbled Damascus blade, white scabbard and wrap...its a sweet look. I researched these Shinwa blades on other sites since I'm not a sword purest, nor do I want to pay $1500 for an elite blade. They have decent reviews, even from people claiming to be sword-smiths and enthusiasts. It's like everything else...there are different levels of product. This isn't your Porsche 911, but it IS your Ford Mustang GT! See what I mean? It's not black and white (the subject matter, since the sword colors actually are black and white, it's either fantastic or junk. It's a great sword. Bottom line: I haven't defended my homestead against Samurais or zombies (and yes, I WILL be, but this sword is beautiful and elegant, very sharp, and appears fairly well balanced. Its PERFECT for the price (you may have seen that written somewhere lol). I did like another reviewer suggested and kept the plastic wrap on the white cording on the handle to keep it from getting dirty. Awesome sword BudK. Thank you!

great sword, but... Reviewed by trouble on Dec 15, 2013   4 out of 5

It's a nice sword, but mine was not razor sharp out the box like others say, it couldn't cut through a plastic bottle, but stabbed through it nicely. The scabbard is really soft wood and dings easily. Also I was hoping for an authentic Japanese sword, and was disappointed to see handcrafted in CHINA on the blade. I am happy that it is handcrafted, and it has a very nice weight to it. As for stabbing through a zombies head it'll defiantly do nicely. And with a good sharpening I'm sure it'll slice them up too. Over all it is a very nice sword, very thick and heavy blade, won't bend easily. I really love it, despite any minor flaws.

Good Gift Reviewed by P on Mar 02, 2013   2 out of 5

This was a gift to me, The handle wrap is not silk so it moves if used a lot, but the blade is very sharp and weighted well... I suggest getting if you have not bought a real sharp katana and payed with it.

it is okay Reviewed by justin on Jan 30, 2013   3 out of 5

it is an okay sword very nice to look at but there are a couple things wrong the handle wrap is a little loose and the metal on top and bottom of the guard is not held together all the way it kind of rattles a little bit but it is still a very nice sword to own i love the weight it deffinately could cut a zombie down.

Looks Nice Reviewed by Jolly Rogering on Nov 07, 2012   3 out of 5

It's not full tang, probably closer to 2/3 to 3/4, which is fine. The balance is off, but it is pretty to look at. My two complaints are first the "same" of the "tsuka" seems to be plastic, second the steel seems to be some sort of "pot" metal. Not sure if it has a high tin content or whatever but, meeting my other forged swords edge on edge would crack it for sure. So great for zombies, bad for invading Europe, great to look at. As far as whether it's a "ninja-to" or a katana, historically it can be both. But that debate is about as relevant as a broadsword or claymore debate. Kinda' depends on the one holding it I guess.

Shinwa White Knight White Cord Katana Sword Damascus Reviewed by Evan Ramos on Jul 22, 2012   5 out of 5

Love that i actually own this sword.. it is a fantastic piece of my collection. The sword is well fitted and its black blade is Razor sharp + full tang. (Not a Toy!!) Something you definitely don't want to play with. I like this sword so much i keep the plastic on the handle so it stays white also love the details on the guard (just below the blade + blade collar) and the pommel. (butt of the handle)

review Reviewed by HALOBMX on Aug 11, 2011   3 out of 5

First this isn't a "katana" its a Ninja-to (it is not pronounced how it is spelled). Second this sword is not meant to be double edged but otherwise this blade is very well. I was not so happy with the tang. The tang wasn't full tang the suba was a little loose but nothing a small fix wont change. Also the blade is colored when it was folded but the dye wears off if you will actually use this sword, but that's no big deal. I would definitely recommend this sword to a friend!!

Katana Reviewed by James on May 24, 2011   3 out of 5

The "katana" is great. It is a well made battle ready weapon. I gave this sword a 3/5 because the katana's saya is ill fitted and the sword does not lock in place. I might be biased, however when I opened the box and picked up the sword and held it horizontally, the sword started to slide out. I would have liked it if the sword would be curved and a little longer to be like a true katana.

amazing sword Reviewed by blaze on May 08, 2011   5 out of 5

an amazing sword and great quality very sturdy what u want in a sword and for the guy below me its a katana not suppose to be dual edged

White Katana Sword Reviewed by on Jan 26, 2011   4 out of 5

I enjoy the sword, very sharp and sturdy, however the blade was not actually dual edged. The sword did come with a How To care guide to help clean the sword if you get their sword care kit. Overall I enjoy the sword and the How To guide was very helpful, just wish it was dual bladed. :)
