One look at these out of the box and I loved them. The handle has an excellent grip and it fits my hand real nice. However, the handle seems clunky compared to the blade a little. It's not too bad though. Also the blade is very thin, but at the same time, it is very felxible and sharp. I wouldn't use them for throwing. The swords are also extremely light, perfect for a ninja. I highly recommend them.
This is the number one item in my Zombie Apocalypse bag. Sharpened up nicely and does great damage to my overgrown Crape Myrtles in my front yard. I liked it so much I'm buying another for my kit, two hands two swords.
