A blade made for resonance and require great control from the user

I love this blade it would be even more deadly if it was full T'ang but it depends on how you use it not how it was made

Great sword for the money

This is the only Shinwa sword that I own, but I plan to purchase one of the more expensive ones because of it. The blade is solid and the damascus pattern is beautiful and subtle. I the steel itself seems to be high quality and razor sharp right out of the box. I cut a large TV box in half in one swing, including the metal staples in the cardboard. My biggest complaint is the design of the sword as a whole. It's cool when its in its sheath because it looks like a walking stick but when unsheathed the handle is not easy to grip because its not wrapped in anything. Grab it with one of the many promotions (penny shipping, percentage off, etc) that BudK offers and you wont be disappointed. SHINWA NODACHI!!!!

not quite what i expected

I will start off by saying im overall satisfied with the sword. the Blade is sharp enough to pass the paper test rite out of the box. the blade is not as thick as i expected it to be and the handle and sheathe seem like there wrapped in thin plastic and it is very light. Im not sure it could hold up to heavy cutting without the handle splitting as it seems to be glued together. The decorative box it comes in is quite beautiful yet cheaply made.

This is a sharp sword. It stabs into things well and cuts at an angle like a laser.
