It was priced at $110 retail and on sale for $50 so I honestly did not expect much, especially after seeing so many other poorly constructed katana at a $100-$150 price range. I was pleasantly surprised.
The katana had a good heft and there was absolutely no rattle or wiggle in the whole length of it. Such looseness is a hallmark of cheap katanas.
In all knives and swords there is a fit and finish rating. For this katana the fit, the degree to which all parts meet and are mated, was very good. I would give it a B+. The finish, of course, is less. There are light grind marks and there is no mirror finish. The Habaki is ok but nothing but functional.
That is why I bought it. I wanted something to use as a bokken for training and as a training device to practice positions and strokes.
It looks absolutely beautiful
After scowering the internet for hours wondering if i was going to be dissapointed or not. I took a gamble and bought it at the close out price(amazing deal!) when it got here today. I looked at it and admired the beauty before i opened it. The blade is extremely sharp and i have no complaints other than the common trueswords signature "weird mucky stuff on the blade" a couple wipes off with a paper towel and it shows the real beauty of the blade!!
