The blade looks very nice. I am pleased to see the grip/pommel has a slight influence from the Cossack/Kazak Sahsqua.

Amazing Wakizashi! Reviewed by Don Gannon on May 16, 2016   5 out of 5

Mine arrived on time and undamaged. This is an amazing sword. First off, the saya is exceptional for this price point. It has a real koiguchi to support and protect the open end of the saya, and fits the habaki very well. There is absolutely no rattle when the blade is properly seated. The kurigata is nicely attached, and has inset, metal, shitodome to support the sageo. The sageo itself is nice woven cotton that is soft and feels very traditional. The leather wrap above and below the kurigata makes this a saya that will will STAY in my obi or in the K clips on my backpack. As to the sword itself. This is a nicely balanced blade made of 1060 steel that has a solid temper. It passed an ANSI file test at more than 40 HRC, probably closer to 50. There is no hamon, so this is that hard all the way through! Mine came perfectly straight, with a very even geometry. Not a wave or ripple in any of the curves or angles. The hi and shinogi are very well placed, and I must say, this sings with a very nice note when swung correctly. I distinctly heard all three notes of the traditional tachikaze when my sensei demonstrated that it was possible to get this modern weapon to do traditional things. I am very pleased with this sword. This is a weapon. It has now become my primary home defense tool. I still have the Musashi Bamboo Warrior in the bedroom, in case the zombie gets that far, but this one has pride of place next to the front door to greet any unpleasant callers.

Superior quality Reviewed by on Apr 30, 2016   5 out of 5

I'm glad I purchased this sword for my collection; all new technology is applied to a classic weapon and the results are a line of products both practical and incredibly aesthetic. The sword is well balanced, handles as if it was part of your arm. The blade is sharp, thick and strong yet easy to maneuver. The handle is solid and ergonomic and the pommel counterweights and complements the whole sword for swift and powerful thrusts. It's perfect! Thanks!
