This Kama set is perfectly balanced for precision performance for the amateur or the professional. The hardwood handles are lightweight for quick maneuvering.
Just so people know they are a type of Carbon steel not stainless! They are a deferentially heat treated Carbon steel! That's why they have the burn marks on the steel and why they get so sharp. They will rust or stain if you don't take care of them. I can't say for sure but I'm assuming they're 1095 or similar white steel or maybe even super blue. Overall they are good blades I wish I could get a knife of this quality for this price.
I ordered these 6 days ago. The reason that I'm writing this review is because I've only been using these for 4 hours and on of them bent at the tip... twice. I had to hammer the tips out so that they were usable again. Definitely worth 10 dollars, but the kind of disappointed me.
I have really mixed feelings about this set...my initial reaction was disapoint because these things are super light. The one decal peeled off my first time handling them and showed that the blade only goes about 2 inches into the very light wood handles. But then I remembered they only cost less than $5 a piece. They are razor sharp...literally takes the hair off my arm in one swipe. They are very interesting wall hangers or honestly feel like they would be very useful cutting down tall grass without having to go through the trouble of plugging in a trimmer as some other reviews stated. Utility over weaponry...mini sickle rather than a ninja weapon (I know ninjas repurposed farming implements but they had to be more heavy duty than this). For self defense...they are visually very intimidating but if it comes to blows you better land the first blow because they might shatter after that. In short....pretty neat.
Got these for pruning tall grass in my garden. They work excellent, as these things are incredibly sharp, and surprisingly durable. They admittedly look like they wouldn't hold up well, but I've use these on a very regular basis in my garden for a year and a half and I prefer to use them over any of my other sickles or shears. The blades are well-seated in the handle, as I'm not easy on these blades, and there is not any play in them after all the times I've used them. My only complaint is not a complaint really: you have to oil the blades because they are carbon steel and will rust easily, but I don't mind this as I prefer carbon steel blades because of their superior sharpness to stainless. Great item.
Good deal for the money, if you get them like I did, $10 for the set. This is my first experience with Kama's so I have no point of comparison but for $10 + postage for the set? Great deal. Very sharp. Be careful. I removed the sticker immediately, not sure what that sticker is about? I then painted mine flat black. They look bad a** now. VERY sharp, I cut myself while painting one of them. If you're looking for bulletproof, beat against a tree toughness, look elsewhere. If you want a good deal for the money. Here you go
I don't quite understand why these are top rated. If I hadn't gotten them on sale for half price and free shipping, I would be very disappointed. The blades are nothing more than thick, stamped sheet metal that has a very sharp edge ground on them and wedged into a light weight, cut off dowel. There is also a paper sticker with tape holding it on and a mysterious #6 painted on each handle. Display would be the only use for these, but at $20, plus shipping the recommendation is definitely a NO. BudK has much, much better merchandise for that amount and less.
I use them for skill and balance of movement ,technique , training ,if you are not mentally adept to adjust to your environment what ever it be ,then you are short on skill of mind
The wood used is a somewhat soft wood for this application. the blades seem well connected though. The blades are rather thin and I am not sure what type of steel they are constructed from, but it has a good spring temper and heat treated. They are absurdly sharp. With out exaggeration, these are shaving sharp. Shaving is not a recommended use for these, but it did work well with my beard hair.
People, Kamas are traditionally farm tools used to cut wheat and canes like a scythe, if you will. Thats why it may feel flimsy or break easy. The tests they put them through are hardly mass-produced crops. Thank you.
Poor quality. The wood feels as if its old and splintery and could break at any time. These felt as if they were being held together by the sticker. The blade is SHARP, but made from low quality iron. These look like they were put together by children.
Although I cannot attest to the durability of these kamas, as I just received them, they are very sharp and seem well attached to the wooden handle. I wouldn't recommend heavy cutting as the blades are not thick enough for heavy duty usage but for light cutting, hacking at cardboard boxes, or for display purposes these work very well.
this is a winner in my collection. by far sharpest i would say. out of the box razor sharp. i dont think the stickers on the kamas were important so i took um off. shipping was FAST, 2 days. for me that is, im in georgia. anyways best deal, so good im might order me another set. and yeah these do some major damage on my budk boxes.
one of the sharpest weapons in my collection. the shipping was fast but when they arrived the handles were splintered. overall great i might order another
Im a huge ninja weapon collector and out of my 27 other swords and daggers this is by far the sharpest, but you have to know how to use them because its not a very strong design and may break if used incorrectly.
I totally agree with bill. These things seem like they will fall apart if you hit something with them, but instead they keep on slashing. They are SUPER sharp, and cut through cardboard for hours very easily. ( i get lots of orders in large boxes from BUDK haha) These go great in my collection. The only thing that was a problem for me was the sticker things near the top of the handle don't stay on very well with frequent use.
as an avid collector of weapons and knives. I have NEVER seen a blade sharper. I have a two thousand dollar sushi knife, and it doesn't even come close. they are literally razors. Amazing. An exceptional value. i just can't figure out what the number "6" means stamped on them.
The blade was attached to the handle by a bent nail and only went into the handle 1" I would not classify this as battle ready only for display
i got these and they are SHARP, it got 4 stars because they are cheaply built, well worth the money if you know how to use them.
if you buy these and you should do that be careful they are beyond razor sharp and will cut you in an instant i almost had to get stitches the cut was so deep but very fun to use if you are experienced with them (which I'm not) but even if you aren't they are a great show piece
this kama set is really cool.they did far exceed my expectations.i would replace them if something happend to them.these are my first kamas so i cant compare them.well worth the price.highly recommended for any enthusiast or samurai warrior.by the way these blades are really sharp!
These Kama are awesome! BE CAREFUL, I CUT MYSELF WHILE CLEANING THE BLADE, THE ARE LITERALLY AS SHARP AS A RAZOR BLADE!!! But the metal points are a bit flimsy, I used them on a tree and the point bent and broke off, but the blade is still very good. Awesome weapon!
Good weapons. Very sharp. The only flaws are the blade is VERY thin so it can break easily, the blade has a nasty burn stain and hammer hits on it, the wood is very light and feels like it could break easily, it came in almost 1 week (it says 2-4 days). besides that it is awesome
Nice and sharp. I've only tested it on cardboard, and it cuts through it with minimal effort. A good buy at a very nice price.
Very sharp, very lightweight and very easy to handle. My only complaint is that they don't have a sheath or sheathes of some sort, which is a minor flaw with an otherwise wonderful set!
I just got these in today...they are freakin' amazing. The orange sticker on the handle is like a dog with japanese writing and the blade has some writing too. The blade has the sharp, silver part at the bottom and the dirty chrome color on the top with some markings but in the middle is a weird mark like it was joined together by heat. Really sharp and cuts through card board like no tomorrow. If you don't mind the few Japanese markings and heat stain in the middle these are DEFINITELY worth the money.
just got these in, and im real happy with them. but i warn you, your blades may have a weird color to em. still too cool though, and real sharp
Excellent. Very sharp. I tested them in some cardboard. Barely applied force and it sheared through it like nothing.
