Not bad... Reviewed by on Dec 30, 2016   4 out of 5

I love this sword except for one or two small details. First the blade on the one I got has a slight warp in it. Not enough to really hurt but it is there just the same. Second there is no hardness rating, ok its made out of 1060 steel but if it wasn't hardened that doesn't really mean a whole lot.



Awesome Reviewed by kurtis daniels on Dec 27, 2016   5 out of 5

I wanted it the moment I saw it and I absolutely love it. There was a bit of a sticky residue on the blade but I cleaned it off so no big deal



Innovative success Reviewed by Jeremiah Mangrum on Dec 08, 2016   4 out of 5

Just got mine today and very excited to get to start using it. I only had a chance to handle it about 20 minutes this morning before heading to work and a few things i wanted to mention. I really like a lot of the modern designs of Honshu and United Cutlery. I've ordered several products from the tactical wakizashi to the tantos, the gladius and jungle toothpicks and tanto machetes. The machetes have been great, super affordable and pretty cool and fun. The tactical waki and tanto on the other hand i had problems with. They looked great but in regards to function they seemed to not have a lot of heft in the blade. This Boshin Wakizashi has exceeded all of my expectations and is by far the best Honshu product i've purchased. The leather wrap on the saya has a nice feel and look. Saya is wood which is a plus, decent quality too from what i could tell. Handle has a recurve to it and I believe the tang runs all the way to the pommel at the bottom of the handle. The angle the pommel takes grips your hand as you swing preventing it from sliding and gives a great grip. That pommel is heavy duty metal too, could be a serious "attitude adjuster". Blade is thicker and heavier than their tactical wak/tanto which i think is a huge improvement on these smaller/shorter blades. I'm 6' 3'' and although this is a "Wak" the handle is large enough for two hands comfortably for power cuts or parrying etc. Seems fairly sharp, will have to do some test cutting over the weekend if i don't freeze and die with my heat being broken (:D). The tsuba (handguard) is similar to a simple bayonete protruding disc which is thick enough to be functional. Has a tactical feel and Is something I could see strapping to my back or waist. Only downside i see so far is that my blade came with a very sticky glue substance coating the blade. I don't mind wiping that off and cleaning it but worry that the glue is on the inside of the saya and will need repeated cleaning. All in all very pleased, think this product has made a lot of improvements where other honshu products have come up short.



Nice option for a contemporary piece Reviewed by Christian Heath on Dec 06, 2016   4 out of 5

Although this is not a show piece or something I would take into battle I am very satisfied with my purchase of this item. It is a modern take on a a classic type of weapon. Fun to hold in you hand and practice with, if i was to drop it etc. I would not be as bummed out as if I had a more expensive show piece in my hand at the time. Heavy piece made out of quality materials, I have to say I like it very much and the people at United should be pleased with this design as I am. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this piece. The scabbard is well made and holds the blade nice and snug.



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.
