I got this for my birthday about a week and a half ago, and I must say, I am impressed. The "Hanging Medallion" it comes with is just a little piece of plastic with the company name on it, but I don't particularly care about that. There was no damage to it during shipping, and according to my mother, it got here within 3 or 4 days of her ordering it. On to the blade itself. Exceptional craftsmanship. It feels nice in my hands and has a good weight to it. The balance is a few inches forward of the handle, but that's really not much of an issue. Really everything about the sword is beautiful, and the only thing I can think of that mars that in any way is the CHINA engraving on the back of the blade, just above the Habiki (copper blade collar). The blade is extremely sharp and comes with a light coating of oil. While I was wiping the oil off of the blade, I ran across the edge by mistake and it sliced straight through the rag and into my hand. I chopped up the packaging it came in and it went through the cardboard like it was warm butter. I've noticed that the blade is extremely durable as well, due to the fact that I did a full force swing through a cardboard box and into the concrete below (I didn't think it'd go all the way through, but I guess I'm just undercrediting the blade). The only damage to the blade itself were a few nicks that took me 20 minutes of paranoid inspection to find. I highly recommend this blade to anyone who wants a unique piece to add to their collection.
