This sword is amazing

This sword is absolutely stunning and powerful. I was not a die hard katana fan but this sword instantly became my favorite sword in my collection. I haven't got to really test it but it was strong enough to cut through an old broom handle like it was nothing. If you're thinking of buying this sword do it you will not be disappointed.

Fine Art or Fine Fight

I just received my Shikoto and I am very pleased. This sword is not only most handsome but it appears ready for battle. The fittings are tight and the edge is ready to shave!

Honestly I bought this sword to add a little diversity to my collection, and I was not disappointed. Although it is not my favored sword for the feel, it is my favorite for the looks. The pictures do not do this sword justice, it is truly beautiful and breathtaking. It feels solid and sturdy and is slightly heavier than some of my other Katanas but it doesn't feel unbalanced. The blade came quite sharp and well oiled. Overall I would say this is a great buy for anyone who wants either a decorative or a functional piece.

Awesome! This is one beautiful sword and my second United Damascus sword in my collection, which both are quality works of art. A sword worthy of ceremonial and public martial arts exhibitions. Sharp out of the box and ready to slice. I have no regrets on this purchase and would recommend it to friends.
