Real nice sword. It was a tad heavier than I expected (mostly because before this I only had stainless steel) and the design you can actually feel so it is true with the lairs. If the design was painted on you wouldnt be able to feel the lairs which makes me confident this was a good buy. This sword is also razor sharp. I ran my fingers along the blade to see how sharp it was and I barely even wanted to have a light touch on the blade because it felt like if I put any weight on the blade it would slice my finger off. Awesome sword. Ranks 2 on my most favorite list. Number 1 is the Shinwa Damascus Double Edge Dragon Ninja Katana Black. It has nice design and has a nice double edge on it and is also razor sharp and a tad more weight. If you like this sword you will love the shinwa damascus.

First of all this sword is razor sharp, I have no idea why a person posted at the bottom that it comes dull. It shaves paper, I ran it down my leg and my shin is bald, granted I always hone my blades just a little to bring out that razor sharpness, but I made maybe 5 passes with my accusharp and it's crazy sharp now but it WILL shave paper out of the box.

I wish I knew what type of steel it is, other than folded Damascus, I read somewhere it was 1055 carbon? Not sure. At any rate, I tried bending it (within reason) it doesn't take a set, it just bends back. The fittings are high quality, most swords under 300 use those ugly cog-like spacers, not this sword, it uses high quality fittings, comparable to my best sword, which is my Ronin Katana. The blade itself is beautiful, as I said comes sharp. The saya (scabbard) feels for some reason higher quality than normal.

The tsuka is wrapped in black cotton, but it doesn't feel like cheap shoestring like other swords. Real rayskin bamboo pegs. A hardwood storage box (higher quality than my cheness Kaze came in). This sword is extremely tight, there is no rattle, no movement, just straight business, even the cotton wrapped handle feels like it's wrapped tighter than normal, which is good.

My only complaint about this Katana, and it's mainly just me being has "china" stamped on the lower part of the blade, from an aesthetic point of view this just ruins it, sure I plan to get some polish and clean off the stamp, but I don't know why they do this. We all know that ANY katana bought outside of Japan is going to be made in China, there's no need in stamping it on the blade of a sword this nice. That and it has "Musha" branded on the hilt.

However don't let this sway you, this is the 2nd best Katana I've bought on trueswords, the number one being the cold steel warrior katana. All around, this is my favorite Katana at present.
