My experience was a complete 180 of Ian's. These swords are all solid. The Damascus layers are clearly evident in my set and the blades are beautiful. They are all extremely tightly fitted with no rattle and sharp as hell. None of the scabbards are loose on my set. If anything they're overly tight, but I wouldn't say it takes an absurd amount of strength to pull the swords. It does take some effort though. Also the pearl design on the scabbards is gorgeous and the box was fine. If I was any more satisfied they'd have to arrest true swords for a happy ending. It's unfortunate Ian may have gotten a "dud." I personally would highly recommend this set.
I've used true swords a lot over the years. This is the first time I was dissatisfied. The product didn't come as advertised. Instead of Damascus steel it was regular 1060 carbon steel (im not 100% sure on being 1060 but i could guess based off other purchases). Another issue is that the sheath practically falls off of the katana and it takes an absurd amount of strength to take the sheath off of the tanto. The box also came with some light damage. I normally wouldn't complain over small things like this, but being $400 i at least expect to receive the product I payed for.
