Nice Reviewed by steve waters on Nov 26, 2016   5 out of 5

Just got mine this week. Heavy, well balanced sword. Very sharp. Not cheap in any way. Instantly one of my favorites. For the price you can't go wrong.

Sharp baby! Reviewed by on Nov 18, 2016   5 out of 5

I just got this and the Honshu war sword from Budk and love them both but this one the most. It is scary sharp out of the box has a nice weight and I like the curved pommel design. If you are on the fence about buying either I'd say just go for it. I'm going to keep this as my go to quick home defense sword. I like it that much. It does not fit too tight in the sheath but does not fall out either, just a nice fit! Sheath is a good looking one as well with the leather wrapping.

For the price its Graet! Reviewed by Edward Tibor III on Nov 04, 2016   5 out of 5

For the price it is great! It is functional and could be used in a battle. But that does not mean I would go and fight the 300 Spartans with it . (lol). I collect many different types of swords by many different makers. They all would have different purpose if we were in medieval times. As an example, a sword like this I might take to the village mart with me for protection from thieves. If I was going to battle on a field against a kings army I may look for a more expensive well built sword. If you want a better built sword from this website you might want to check out the cold steel section. Cold steel swords are more expensive but they truly are stronger. I have both Honshu and Cold steel swords at home, as well as other names I wont say because this site does not sell them and that would be unfair to budk. Lol

Very Good Blade Reviewed by on Oct 21, 2016   5 out of 5

Not Exactly What I Was Expecting, But Its Really Nice Still, I Was Expecting It To Basically Mirror The Honshu Tactical Wakazashi In Every Way But Its Not Anything Like It Really, Doesnt Have The Habaki, Has A Hollow Grind And Secondary Edge Bevel, And Is A Tad Bit Longer Overall! The Only Issue I Have with It Is When I Received It, It Had A Thick Coat Of Wax On It That I Had To Wash Off, It Felt Like The Blade Had Been Diped In Rubber But A Quick Wash With Hot Water Fixes That.

Crappy build techniques Reviewed by on Aug 07, 2016   2 out of 5

I bought mine back in January, and used it exclusively. The blade was decently shaped and(from my knowledge) was tempered and stood up to its tests. The blade came pretty sharp, but not as sharp as it should be. I was pretty happy with the purchase, until today I was doing some very soft cutting on water bottles when the pummel popped off. The tang inside had broken and it was held on by appoxy. When it comes to the scabbard( not that this matters) it was poorly made and, though the Saigo was well tied, the "leather" wrapping became undone when the appoxy wore off. For a while there, I was happy with the purchase until it showed its huge flaws.

Perfect!!! Reviewed by jason hoffman on May 10, 2016   5 out of 5

Sorry, i apparently bought the last one... I just got mine in today and I'm extremely happy. Mine came to me razor sharp and not one flaw, I know I looked. It has 1060 high carbon steel written on the blade. This sword feels like on extension of my arm, it's well balanced and easy to swing with one hand but even better with two. I can't believe how beautiful and functional this weapon is. This is no wall hanger, its an actual functioning wepon. I ordered it on Saturday and got it Tuesday morning, now that's fast shipping that only Budk can do. This sword is definitely worth every penny.

Well Done Modern Sword Reviewed by on Apr 18, 2016   4 out of 5

I received mine today. I was impressed is an understatement! It is a sword. It matches the other Honshu knives I have. It is a solid piece. The balance is fine. This is a bit heavier than other Wakizashi's I have had because I believe the blade is a tad bit thicker plus the full tang being a bit beefier. The slip free TPR is a bit sharp at first but I imagine in time will wear a bit. The guard is adequate - too shallow on top but fine on the bottom. Definitely swings better with a two-handed grip but manageable with one. The scabbard is adequate - holds the sword well. I only wish they used a more modern means of attaching the sword to a belt rather than a traditional look. All in all it is a solid home defense piece, a battle ready weapon should Zombies knock at your door, and a great modern rendition of a Wakizashi.

No complaints, first "real?" Sword Reviewed by on Apr 16, 2016   4 out of 5

Some will argue its not a real sword, but for the price absolutely stunned!!! :) Good size curve weight and sheaths nice, can hold upside down and even jiggle a good amount with no worry of it coming out. The absolutely only complaint i have is only once in a while its seems to get caught up when its almost all the way in, and i gotta take like half way back out and put back down again.

good Reviewed by Anh Nguyen on Apr 06, 2016   4 out of 5

I just received this sword in this morning. It came with a nice box. Everything is good, but the blade look like the knives than a sword!
