This Shinwa Red Nodach swordi measures 40 1/4" overall. Features a stunning heat tempered, heat-forged Damascus steel 28 3/8" blade that is built to perform with a razor sharp edge. The beauty of the Damascus steel is highlighted by the blazing red lacquer finish of the hardwood handle and scabbard. This is yet another example of the true beauty and functionality produced by the masters at Shinwa!
It is very true that this blade is a little off balance, but than can be easily fixed. And, as for those saying not to hit anything with this are simply not true. Since I have received the blade it was not only beautiful, but I have cut through several 3 inch pieces of wood and water jugs. The only problem I have with the blade of course is the rusting, so make sure to keep it dry and oil it up.
Nodachi are to the Katana, like the hairless cat is to cats. lol, it looks cool, but I had to get use to it. I had to balance the sword which helped it feel more secure in my hand and also increased it's over all performance. I bought this sword because it has a Shinwa blade and looked cool!
"i was disappointed the balance is off. it fells like holding an axe. it has abut a 1 1/2 inch"" tang. blades beautiful though."""
