Decent sword but,the chord started fraying for no reason, the handle started splitting and it started falling apart . no, I haven't used it. I swung it around a little, to get the feel of it but, that's all.

Amazing sword, blades made of great steel, worth at least 100$, awesome for the price, one problem was the faux ray skin handle began to get loose on the handle, but still pretty awesome

Great sword good balance good weight overall great sword almost what i expected. The sheath feels a little light to me but is sturdy, had to glue the metal cap of the sheath down cause it kept coming off but that's not a real issues at all. great buy and would recommend to anyone looking for their first Katana

I bought this weapon for my brother a month or so ago along with another samurai special. I can honestly say I'm's BIGGEST fan and will continue buying from them til I drop. That being said, I give this sword 3 stars because it was way thinner, lighter and weaker than my Sam special. After a few water bottles, the blade began to warp and we are adept if not expert swordsmen. I would recommend another Sam special unless the one I got was faulty, otherwise perfect beginner weapon. Sharp, the build was sturdy and went into the days perfectly. Only complain was the blade but for the price who am I to complain.

Very very nice, I was suprised to see how nicely it was crafted, and boxed. To me it was well worth the money and I will bye more of these blades in the future.

If you are starting or growing a collection, this is a deal you cant miss! I got it a few months ago,and on my first day I tried to cut a milk jug, I missed and cut 1/2 an inch into the table, leaving only a VERY small dent. I also tried the blade on palm tree branches. Suprisingly it held up, and went clean through easily,as long as you have room. Beautiful sword all in all, and well made.

I got the sword this morning, after ordering it Sunday. VERY quick shipping. So far I am quite pleased with it. My thumb learned the hard way that its quite sharp.

After a little bit of test chopping, so far only a small nick in the blade has appeared, but thats to be expected when your chopping tree limbs. There is a small rattle in the handle that bothers me slightly, but its likely nothing much.

I wouldn't trust this sword in a Zombie apocalypse (And the chances are i'll never need a sword for chopping up zombies), however I'd rather be caught with it, rather than nothing.

All in all, limit it to light cutting and training, take care of it, and you should have a nice Katana for quite awhile.

OMG, not sure where to start. Love the sword, and really cant say i dislike anytthing about it, been over it a few times now and wow, completely amazing in all areas from what i can tell.
shipping was fast and when i opened the fedex package (there were other swords in there i order as well) was actually suprised to see the Musha boxes.

beautiful sword, feels great when you hold it, killer looks, no complaints
