Located within the border of South Zhejiang, and under the Fengyang Mountain, Longquan is rich in resources which are ideal for crafting swords. During the period of Warring States (770-476 B.C.), a famous sword maker named Ou Yezi created the most renowned sword in Longquan. Since then, the secret arts of crafting swords have been passed down from generation to generation. Ryumon and Masahiro swords are hand forged by master craftsmen with years of experience from Longquan.

When I first opened this up it had the nasty gunk they put on these swords to store in wearhouses and shipping, which i fine but takes away a bit of the awe and majesty of this type of sword. It cleans up very nicely and looks fantastic. The blade however doesn't feel quite right in my hands but it does in my wifes so we kept it. It was a little to heavy on the blade side for my tastes. The sharpness of it was amazing and the sound of it as it swings. This was a very nice blade 4 stars because it was a little off in the balance, but still worth buying.
Excellent sword, while I have yet to put it to use, it is very detailed and feels great. Its not balanced 100%, but its close enough to give a great feel. If you are merely a sword collector, then this will put a few other swords in your collection to shame. It is very sharp as well so do not play with this if you dont know how. Swords like this will keep me coming back.
