i bought the sword, it came in, in a good amount of time (about a week and 2 days) the sword was very sharp and looked AMAZING aside from the tsuba which idk what it was made of but looked like plastic, so after replacing the oil on the sword i decided to go and slice some water bottles and it went well until I tried cutting through 2 at once where it went through the first one alright and cut through about half of the second one and when I looked at the sword there was bends in the blade! the bends were on the edge where it made the edge almost go down! and the tsuba was also loose and when you tapped on anything lightly with the sword it felt like it would break. basically an amazing looking blade but not made very well at all, sending it back

i think i selected 2 day delivery but it seems like it got here in 1 day so very awesome...absolutely love this piece, just stunning, and sharp. It was exactly what i was expecting, another Masahiro for my collection, now i am just waiting for the Musashi Three Tier Wall Mount to put them on display when im not practicing with them.

This is my first real sword so I don't have a comparison but I really like this sword. It could be a little heavier and longer but it was what i expected. I had a few minutes of fun hacking up the box it came in.

I just purchased this sword and put it through it's paces. It's a very fine katana and extremely sharp.

The steel is well folded, with no major defects in the forging process. (The layers are all tight and there's as little porosity as possible). The balance point of the sword is about 4 inches up from the tsuba and it's relatively light. A very fast cutter and as sharp as it gets.

I'm not sure about the hardness, but it's definitely monotempered. So far it has been able to cut through it's own box, several rolled mats of varying thicknesses and some jugs with no signs of ever being used. (As it should be) The acid bath they give it to darken the folds is only a surface treatment, but has held up very well so far.

Overall I give it a 5/5 for it's price range. Best Katana you can get for the money. It is, however, not the best in the whole world. Great for an entry to light/medium cutting and a lot more attractive than a normal carbon steel katana.

This blade is a beautiful work of art. I never thought I would have a blade of this quality. Every detail is stunning. To top it off it's sharp. Really sharp. It cut throught the box it came in like butter. I almost fell over from the lack of hesitation. Oh and like the other reveiws said, the oil container leaked out, but other than that, this is a must have Item.
