    Too high of a price for a low grade carbon steel katana.

    Unbelievable sword, and can't beat the price. Rather than the older model that had the listed iron guard and fittings, I received one of the extremely handsome newer swords that feature nickel-silver brass for those parts.
    One of these swords would run you $874 if you bought directly from Cold Steel, making this an almost $1,000 katana that you can have for less than $500.
    Quality is of course top notch. The entire sword is well balanced, extremely sharp and well polished, and all pieces are put together exceptionally well. There's not a rattle to be found. The weight is good, and it's simply a joy to swing.
    Anyone who collects should jump on this deal, you're getting a very high end Cold Steel katana for what is effectively 50% off.
