    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.

    Review of: Black Tiger Full Tang Katana Sword
  • Jarod


    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.


    Review of: Forged Warrior Chinese War Sword
  • Daniel of Nebraska


    This sword is a razor blade it's sturdy and strong, the scabbard is slender and smooth a very beautiful sword. With respect, if your going to chop wood with a sword especially a slender bladed sword like a Nodachi you deserve to have a bent blade, remember what swords are designed for.... Soft stuff. Thank you Daniel of Nebraska.
