Very nice right out of box. Some imperfections in blade, still very nice for the money

First time buyer. Was very.. very pleased. Very good quality, sharp right out of the box. Well made, not loose at all. Will be purchasing more styles in the future.

This is my second Musashi from the 1060 line, and overall, it's a great sword. When I first opened it, I was a little worried because the bamboo pegs were not slotted in very well, they stuck out on one side of the handle quite far. However, I was able to use a small brass hammer to tap the pegs into place, where they now site very will and even on both sides. It looks and feels much better! Once I had fixed that, the blade was fantastic. I cleaned up the shipping oil and polished it, and it's a gorgeous steel. The hamon line is very pronounced and it looks great. I haven't done any cutting with it yet, but it seems to be very sharp. The fittings, cord wrap, and blade are tight and feel very solid. As for the saya, the color is a very nice, deep red that catches the eye. The only problem I have with the sword is that, while the sword grips snugly into the saya and won't fall out, there is a little blade wobble in the lower half, so you can hear the sword rattle in the saya ever so slightly. My other Musashi doesn't do that. However, I don't believe it's enough to damage the blade at all, and therefore decided that this small flaw didn't outweigh the rest of the sword. Like I said, overall a fantastic sword. The peg issue was easily fixed, and the only problem was a bit of blade wobble: that I actually can reduce by swapping sayas on my two Musashi swords. The other sword doesn't wobble nearly as much, and this blade fits snug into the other's saya. Easy fix! All in all, 4/5 stars for the blade wobble, but I would still recommend any sword in the 1060 line to someone looking to get a few starter blades.

Very nice all over. Blade is quite sharp, though not RAZOR sharp. Don't think it'd be hard to make it razor sharp, if you really wanted to. Feels well balanced and not flimsy or shaky at all. All the wrappings and parts seem quite snug too.

For 80 bucks this thing is wonderful

Phenomenal sword for $80. Buy it immediately. The blade is exactly as advertised, and more. I almost salivated when I opened the packaging and first saw this beauty. Very light blade, much lighter than my practical plus katana, which has a thinner blade. Bo-hi for the win. It has a true hamon, but the blade actually seems to have minimal differential tempering, as the blade has quite a bit of flexibility. I bent the blade cutting a 2" sapling with a horizontal cut, but it bent right back. Very Sharp in every way.

Btw, I'm 43 and didn't buy this to swing around and chop stuff up.
Bought for the visual aspect.
They sent the wrong color. Ordered red, received burgandy. I'm glad they messed up because it is beautiful. Sits on a marble table and looks like they were made to be together.
Not a sword expert, but seems solid and it's sharp as all hell.

I ordered this sword on wed and got it on sat. The shipping on this blade was fantastic. The sword is all that it said it would be in the description. Very sharp and well constructed. This is well worth the money. Very pleased customer here.
