Surprising sword here! I bought it just for a display piece in my shop, but I'm impressed with the fine finish and quality appearance. Great price, too! I had it engraved and that came out perfect! Thanks!

Good Sword Reviewed by on Sep 03, 2016   5 out of 5

This is one of the best swords I've ever seen for under $30. It's razor sharp out of the box. (I just cut myself on the serrated teeth today) It can take more abuse than some other swords I've seen, though I still only recommend it for light brush work and self defense. Only complaint is the length. The picture looks like it's as long as a standard katana, but it's actually a lot shorter than I expected. Still for $30 you can't go wrong.

Pretty cool sword Reviewed by aaron waltz on Jan 16, 2016   4 out of 5

the concept i love it, i always loved my kabar but it was stolen and there pretty expensive so havent replaced it yet, so i see this an absolutely loved this sword version. My only gripes are theres a big grinding swoop right in the middle of the back bone at the factory so it Does look flawed (but i imagine its not on all of them) and i dont get the feeling its super stout but i could be wrong? The handle is well made and the blade is very sharp it swipes through cardboard boxes easily and clean and wow especially the serrated section thats like beware sharp.....

USMC Short sword Reviewed by on Dec 07, 2015   4 out of 5

This was the first sword I have ever gotten and it will always be one of my favorites. The blade did not come as sharp as I would have liked but that's okay because I was able to use my new sharpener I got with it. I know its not full tang but is still very well made and feels sturdy. I plan on joining the army pretty soon and If they will let me I will gladly carry this beautiful weapon with me into combat. Thanks budk I am guaranteed to have business with you in the future.

Great looking sword. Worth the price. Sharp blade. Only complaint is the safety strap broke very easily and the wood maakes your hands smell funny. Overall a great sword

1942 USMC Katana Reviewed by stephen pettway on Jun 27, 2015   2 out of 5

I tested blade strength against a tree stump using moderate force needed to separate a zombie's arm. blade broke about an inch or so below the crossbar within the handle. Disappointed but not heartbroken would rather find out in testing rather than when I really needed it. Removed the pieces of the grip to get at the tang and saw that it had broken at a weld. Other than the weld, it would have been quite adequate for any appropriate use. I used a metal cutting blade on my table saw to continue the tang a few inches down the blade (lost all the serration in the process),filed and fitted as needed and reassembled the handle. It's about 7 inches shorter now but it passes the 'tree stump' test. The pommel is aluminum so drilling out the steel pin was a bit of a challenge. xFilled in the damage with a metal paste and painted it with black insigne paint. Quite a nice tool now. Overall length is now 21 blade length is 15

Awesome Sword Reviewed by marcus connor on Jun 03, 2015   4 out of 5

I love this sword, it has a US 1942 on the blade, KA-BAR looking handle, nice sharp blade. But the two things I don't like about it is I wanted a longer blade and a better sheath like leather or stronger material.

Broken tang Reviewed by Sam on May 14, 2015   1 out of 5

I loved the smart military look of this blade but I discovered it is ONLY FOR LOOKS. The tang of the blade is welded at one inch from the hilt and here was almost no penetration of the weld and after a few taps on a log in the fire it just snapped.
