For one, I feel the need to debunk my friend here who said Damascus steel cannot be created today. According to a 1981 New York Times article (http://www.nytimes.com/1981/09/29/science/the-mystery-of-damascus-steel-appears-solved.html) and various other news sources which you can google, modern Damascus steel can be "synthesized" by sword makers today. It cannot be called true Damascus steel because it is neither made in the middle east or is the process exact down to the letter. Torture test results : A. I have left this is high humidity. Even without oil, it is difficult to rust. Recommend keep it oiled with a light oil such as olive. B. The spine appears to be soft life most katanas, but not so soft that it easily bends. Although not spring steel, the sword is very flexible and does not bend easy. C. The edge can cut through wire at least 14 gauge thick. The point has managed to keep it's shape even after thrusting, although you might find yourself using a small hammer to bend the point strait after thrusting into hard objects such as solid wood. The edge is sharp enough to slit fingertips if run across. The edge also appears to be somewhat softer than I expected. Metal on metal, the edge can nick. But that can also be repaired, wherein when a hard edge is chipped, you need a professional smith to repair it with new material. D. The hand grip appears to be well made and formed, but after whacking stuff for a while I did notice some play. When I removed the handle, the tsuba and the mekugi (which is impossible to do without destroying the handle as the cord, decorations and ray skin are all lightly glued together, I discovered the issue has to do with inferior mekugi. For those that don't know, mekugi are the little bamboo pegs that hold the sword's hilt into the handle. Anyways, the Mekugi are brittle and cheap. Overall, it is a very flexible weapon that can easily be maintained by the layman, but would suggest replacing the handle and mekugi ASAP.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Just received my ninjaken and it appears to be well made and as far as being sharp, well I believe that there are 5 levels of sharp. Out of the box I consider the blade to be a 2 and after about an hour on my wet stones it is now a 3. I was hoping for a Katana not a ninjaken (straight blade) and above all I was hoping it wouldn?t be made in China. These are the three disapointing things I have found in the first day with this??..sword. Someone with better eyes could possibly see the grain in the steel, I need a magnifying glass. It appears solid and well made so I?ll keep the thing.Would you recommend this to a friend? No

I received my Shinwa sword the other day and I must say it's worth every single penny - and I was fortunate to buy it with a 25% off promotion! I own a few cheap-o swords that are nice and all, but there is a HUGE difference between those wall hangers and this battle-ready sword. The metal is high quality and it is RAZOR sharp. I pity the burglar that breaks into my home! The purple color stands out against the black scabbard and it looks great. It's now my favorite samurai sword! Buy one, you won't regret it!
