Awesome! Reviewed by on Jun 08, 2016   5 out of 5

I did a lot of research before I bought these, as it was my first sword. I felt confident when I pulled the trigger on these and I absolutely love it! I have sliced a few odds and ends and it is holding up perfectly! I would highly recommend these!

Good Enough? 3.5 Reviewed by on Mar 15, 2016   3 out of 5

With help from customer service I was able to find out these have an HRC of ~45. This is a beautiful sword. Very well put together and the tsuba (guard) has a very cool design. The wrap is very tight and looks good too. Came sharp right out of the box but could have been sharper I think. I got this during the bogo deal and am I glad I did. Only real complaint is that one of them curves ever so slightly to the left and the other slightly more to the right. These are my first swords so I don't know if this is something that just happens and how much it will affect cutting.

By far best sword I have seen!! I love japanese culture and blades this one is detailed and brown Damascus blade impresses all I show it too. I will be buying other swords soon.

Beautiful sword Reviewed by Neal on Mar 10, 2015   5 out of 5

Previous review is totally valid, this sword is even more stunning when it has a fresh coat of oil on the blade. The sword stays in the scabbard fairly well, can spin the scabbard an the sword doesn't come out, but its close lol. One of my other swords from BudK sits super tight and I really like that.

Exceeded Expectations Reviewed by JDW on Nov 26, 2014   5 out of 5

I am new to collecting bladed weapons, and I have been on this site building an extensive wish list. It paid off this past birthday when I received this sword as a gift. From the pictures on the site, this sword was aesthetically pleasing, but when I took it out of the box I realized just how beautiful this sword really was. I'm 45 years old and I was acting like a 12 year old boy over this gorgeous weapon. This thing is razor sharp and ready to perform as intended! I have my eye on a couple of other higher end swords offered by BudK.
