Amazing Blade

I got this sword BOGO with 25% off (all together under 100) so my opinion might be skewed. First off this sword is amazing both in feel and look. The Blade is a work of art and very sharp to the touch. The Tsuba has a cool look to it and doesn't wobble. The handle is quality and the pegs show that it is truly a full tang blade. The scabbard isn't the best quality but better then expected. I have bought many things from Budk and this is by far the best purchase. Thanks again Budk!

my opinion

You shouldnt judge a handcrafted sword because of imperfections. These are handmade, and humans arent perfect, so you should return your lemon product and pray the next one will be better. btw, martial arts doesnt change the perception of a product, only if the person changes their own perception itself

i just got this sword in the mail, was impressed with the blade itself but very dissapointed in how it was made!!! my tsumba is loose causing my blade to have a slight rattle and not set well in place!! i understand it was an on sale item but that does not mean it should be more poorly crafted! this was my first purchase and as an avid collector and martial artist i am quite upset

This sword is very well made as stated above. It is extremely sharp!! Cut the hair off my arm like nothing. If you are looking for a cool looking and well made katana to add to your collection, I highly recommend this one.

Dark Dragon Katana Black Damascus

Very solid sword. It has an amazing feel and is very well made. The only reason(s) it did not get five stars is because it isn't a true katana. The sword is perfectly straight. I personally would have preferred not to have the black finish on the outside of the scabbard as it hides the fact that it is made of wood, not plastic, and the black Damascus is not as obvious as other types of Damascus I have seen, but this changes nothing about the sword and I don't regret my purchase. However, I payed only $99.99 for my sword and I would not have spent the full $189.99 if it wasn't on sale. Overall though it is a great sword, both as a display piece and as a functioning sword. The other reviews cover all of the good aspects of the sword so I thought it would be more helpful to mention what little there is wrong with the sword.

Dark Dragon Katana Black Damascus

This came a Surprise to me. I thought this was going to be just OK, Not at all Very Solid. It does need to be sharpened all in all 4.5 on my scale, since there isn't a 4.5 Stars I give it a 5. This is my second Katana but first Damascus. I don't think you can go wrong on this 1 for the money.It Has a the ability to do alot of damage

Dark Dragon = Painful Death!

I got this Sword for my birthday and its a Razor Sharp beauty! I new from history class and from movies that War in the past was brutal, but when you hold this actual Real sword and Slice through gallon jugs of water, pumpkins, and a 20lb Turkey, you can really be thankful we are in modern times! Getting hit by this beast Mine came Razor sharp, I turned it on its back and dropped a tomato from about 12" and it sliced it in half like Butter! This is my first real sword but not my last! BudK shipped it super fast, and the Black Damascus Blade is awesome in person, High Quality, sharp, strong and a Great price! Very Happy Thanks BudK!
