    Second Purchase Reviewed by Travis Spears on Jan 27, 2017   4 out of 5

    I finally received the blade today. I checked the for abnormally noticing the blade contained excessive lubed which was easy to solve via decent whip down. The blade was overall balance but I was disappointed this one wasn't as sharp as my first purchased sword. I wish I purchased a sharper with the order. Overall I like the sword and plan for it to be my practical work sword while my high end blade can be use for special occasions and contest. Overall Satisfied

    My expectations were surprisingly exceeded. I wasn't expecting much for around 50 dollars(with shipping and handling). Everything was very uniform and straight, however the blade was slightly curved to the right. But it was very slight, I had to really look for it. The tang seemed to be full, I did locate the bamboo pegs, but I still haven't swung the sword at full strength. I'm sure it would hold up, but I'm not quite ready to try it (also not mentioned in the description was the specific kind of carbon steel, but I can tell you it's 1045)The blade was pretty dull (not "very sharp" as advertised). The pros outweigh the cons though. It was actually a very detailed katana and though you can't see it well in the picture, there is a dragon design on the handle of the sword. The sheath is covered with a matte black coating that I surprisingly like. The shipping was nice and quick, and it came on the shipping day determined. For the money, I definitely give this five out five stars.

    Just got it today. Love it! It came with a sleeve so that was cool also very nicely weighted, sharp, everything was held together nothing loose. My one concern was the swords sheath, don't get me wrong beautiful design but the blade doesn't slid in like I thought it would if you shake it the blade won't come out but it wiggles.

    Overall beautiful sword, great price, just need to fix the sheath my opinion.

    the first one I got was a small crack, was dull, unbalanced, and had a little bit of rust. so called them up and asked for a replacement and oh boy was there a bid difference in the second sword. it came extremely sharp, well balanced, and in very good condition. basically its a hit or miss but this can def be a good sword if is cared for before they ship it
