The kit is perfectly adequate for properly maintaining a katana, Wakasashi or Tanto. However, the Choji oil is not traditional Choji oil, rather some sort of light oil with no aroma, similar to sewing machine oil. It had also leaked out to the point of leaving just half a bottle full. True choji oil has an aroma of clove to separate it from the common cooking oil of the time. I rectified this by tossing out the plastic bottle and replacing it with my own Choji oil made with mineral oil and a toch of 100% pure essential clove oil (eugeni caryophyllata).

I'm glad enough for this product since it was affordable and got the job done, but the box was broken when I pulled it out of the package and I'd very much prefer it if the maintenance kit itself didn't need it's own maintenance (the brass hammer's headpiece kept coming loose)
just got the package today, very fast shipping. the box it was shipped in had apparently been dropped as it was bent but the actual box I paid for was decent, but made of very cheap wood. everything on the inside that I actually need is in perfect condition. I recommend it if you need the tools inside but if you want a decorative box to go along with it I would pay the extra $2 for the other box.
very excited to have received my cleaning kit through the mail today, only to discover that the bottle of oil was partially open on arrival very disappointed about this, but to my understanding products from trueswords are usually in good condition. Everything else is in good condition, apart from it all being saturated in the leaked oil. over all I understand that there are issues with shipping so I'm not completely irate about the whole thing, I would just like some more oil.
I love it! It's a cool kit just wished it came with instructions.
Smaller then thought but still happy the oil i was afraid was gonna be half empty was not it was completely filled everything is in great condition if your looking for cleaning kit for your blades/ swords i recommend it 5 stars
The cloth it comes with is a little shabby, but the oil and the powder are nice. Does it's job nice price.
Not the best cleaning kit thus encountered, but adequate for very basic sword maintenance, provided the included oil arrives undamaged.
good product alls great about it came with instructions and only 1 downside no dripper for the choji oil so you need to get your own dripper
Everything you need to clean and oil your blades in a expertly made box and tools.
