It's a $40 tanto...

Not sharp. Fittings a little sloppy. Artificial hamon. It's ok for a $40 tanto.

Very nice blade

I received this today (after waiting for FedEx to figure out what state they were delivering to) and I was very happy when I opened it. Genuine rayskin and leather wraps are nicely done, nicely laquered saya. Then, I unsheathed the blade. Very nice. Appears to be a quality piece of steel and is nicely buffed. I personally like the faux hamon, too. The only thing that needs mentioning that is slightly negative is that it isn't very sharp. A little time and attention will mend that, however. Overall, very nice. I am satisfied.

A fine piece for the money. It is indeed fully functional with a nakago that is nearly as long as the Tsuka. Mine came in great shape, razor sharp and very sturdy. Disassembly was fairly simple, but took a bit of doing since the Nakago fits very well within the Tsuka. The only thing I had to do was shim the inside of the saya so the Habaki would fit in snugly according to my preferences. The Ito is indeed real leather with a nice brass menuki on one side. The Fuchi and Kashira are also tightly fiting and very well done in brass. Good job offering this piece at such an affordable price, True Swords. Lyle D. Yates Master Instructor
