I like the sword and recommend it. However I do wish I could get a Japanese sword, one with a slight curve in the blade.
I love the sword its beautifully crafted well balanced and is an excellent showpiece for any collection
Handle could definitely use some reinforcement, especially around the tang (considering it's quite small for such a large blade) my handle began to split after a few swings (never hit anything with it) but some electrical tape fixed that. overall for the price it's not bad at all it is quite sharp and handles nicely.
amazing swords. literally sharper than most of my knives. although i lost one and one eventually broke because i was messing aroun and threw it ( on purpose) and broke off the tip. it then looked crappy so i slammed it lightly against a rock. it broke!. its my fault though
Its craftsmanship and appearance are first rate! the work done and effort towards beauty and detail have gone far beyond my expectations! Well done people!
