This might not be a "sword" blade, but this spike on this Honshu sword cane is incredibly sharp and I would hate to be on the business end of it. I tested it on 1/2" particle board and it penetrated with hardly any effort. Not to mention it just looks awesome!

The whip is too short to have any real value as a weapon, but as a collector's piece it's quite nice. It's sturdily made, and I haven't had any real issues with it. I'd recommend it, ESPECIALLY given the price.
Very light weight, easy to swing. Excellent for concealment, I can put it in my pocket. I would like it two or three feet longer. I cannot actually use it as a whip, but a spinning mass of hard steel in front of you is nothing anyone wants to fight through. This is a great deterrent and will avoid a fight.
Excellent price. wonderful weight to the product but not quite as long as i thought it would be. i think it would be the best with 1 more link in the chain. aside from minor paint flaking after use and the need for a little bit of lube to stop the chain from locking up, it handles wonderfully. good buy for the price.
i use mine more for counter weight on a polypropylene sword i purchased than as a whip. i guess i like my eyes and walls too much. with practice, it could be a great training item.
definatly an effective weapon. its solid, good weights on both ends. swings and spins well. only issue i have with it was when it came the metalic paint didnt flake off but for the first few times i used it and even now after use my hands are covered in shiny speckles of something. other than that its great!
very satisfied, although i mistook the tip in the picture as a blade... don't make that mistake! anyway it is very solid and well made. the tip is not as pointed as the picture depicts but it doesn't affect the fact that it is still very effective and potentially discrete weapon. also be advised hat the ends of the links can bend if used on a solid object. overall great buy.
Quite a nice weapon. I really enjoyed this... until the chains broke. i would often smack it against boxxes for fun. It pierced cardboard Very well. The color stayed the nice chrome until i stopped using it. The only part that faded was the tip of the one of the piercing side. Beneath it, was a copper or bronze color. Some of the chain parts also flaked, very minor though. Overall, this item was good for the 10 bucks i paid. I am most likely going to buy another one, just cause it was so much fun swinging around.
this thing is a lot longer then i thought, made of heavy duty steel. the handle needed some oil to turn smoothly but over all a great buy for the price!
This whip is pretty bad ass. Its very sturdy, and looks even more epic then in the picture. It handles well, there was no rust on any part of the whip. When swinging be careful as it will come back and hit you.
The whip is very nice, it has quite a bit of momentum once you get it swinging around, the only problem I've had with it thus far though, is the first time i hit something decently solid with it, the links flew off. I took the time to weld all of the metal rings that connect it together and I haven't had a problem since, hitting the same things.So, It is worth the money, cant beat 10$, but if you plan on using it a lot and hitting more solid things with it, you should definitely take the time to weld the links together if you have the ability to do that.Also, I was expecting it to be slightly longer, but considering they provided measurements and I didn't look at them, I wont put that into consideration when rating.
