Shinwa Zatoichi Black Sword Damascus Reviewed by Kurt on Dec 25, 2014   5 out of 5

This is the best sword I have out of 4 I have purchased. It is indeed BATTLE READY. The Damascus steel blade is razor sharp on both sides of the blade. It is well balanced and blade is flexible yet is as sturdy as a single long ingot of steel, even after several long training sessions. It has a deep, long blood groove on both sides of the bald. It is elegantly colored, the scabbard holds the blade well without interfering with a very smooth draw. You can tell that it is indeed hand made as opposed to being pressed out en mass in a factory. It is a very good sword made better by having a very reasonable price. I strongly recommend this sword to anyone who wants a good, battle ready sword.

The Best Zatoichi Yet Seen Reviewed by Daniel of Nebraska on Aug 20, 2013   5 out of 5

This is the strongest and sturdiest Zatoichi I've ever had the pleasure to swing, the blade is beautiful the steel thick with a wide blood groove and double edged with a clip point as it should be the hilt is quite nice with cotton wrap on the handle. The sword looks straight but it truly has a slight curve a great buy, you won't find a more beautiful fully functional sword anywhere especially a Zatoichi. Every swordsman should have one, it flies practically on it's own. Thank you. Daniel of Nebraska.

Zatoichi Black Damascus Sword Reviewed by Swordsman on Jan 29, 2011   3 out of 5

It is a great looking sword, but it has a few imperfections. When I got it, it looked and felt great, but after a few training sessions the handle started to rattle. I love the sword and what it represents, but I don't think that it was made to be battle ready. Don't get me wrong, it looks great on the wall.
