This sword has a standard length handle that is a tad thick with the leather. The blade is a inch over average length and has a heavy guard, which is why previous posts have said the blade feels heavy I'm sure. The swords top notch the fittings are tight, the metal passed cutting and bend tests without a hiccup . Only seen 3 swords in the hundred or less category even come close to this level.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

this sword is an amazing katana. it is slightly heavier than my others but this is a katana that will have your friends jealous. it is tight in the saya at first but it later finds the perfect fit. when in a slow practice with shikyo and one other katana, the edges accidentally met yet there was not a scratch on it(the other has a notch). if you take good care of this sword and keep it oiled, it will remain sharp and beautifulWould you recommend this to a friend?

I got this sword as a birthday present and it is okay. I personally think it could be a little less expensive. It's unusually heavy and has a bit of a difficulty drawing it from the Saya; it needs a bit more umph than usual. I don't see how it could be drawn with the thumb. However, That being said, its very nice on the eyes. The black finish on the Saya is glossy and nice, and the tsuka (handle has a nice grip, although it's a little short for my preference. All that aside, however, it is a pretty nice sword. I have another from united which is my all-time favorite but I'm not sure bud K sells the product anymore, much to the dismay of many. But this is quite nice and I would probably buy it again.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
