Wow, Just Wow.

It is a great sword Love it once I got it, Although I was wondering if 41' was a normal Katana length, although it isn't the normal 60', I'm still happy with it, reason being is it fits me well. And I recommend anyone this Katana for any usage (No not for cutting ._.).

Not good don't buy

This product arrived poorly packaged. The sword itself is ok but the saya poorly fits and the sword rattles within it. The black finish on the saya looks cheap and part of the saya was cracked with a piece falling off. If you are determined to buy a sword I got a sharpened mushahi 1060 carbon sword which was better quality for $100. This sword was a disappointment.

Musashi Iaito

I just received this a few days ago and I am very pleased with it. The Musashi Bushido line has been known, for the most part, to deliver quality swords at extremely low cost, and this item is no different. The shipping took about a week, and there were no dents, dings or scratches to the product when I received it. The wooden saya is a matte black and the sword fits into it perfectly. The fittings are tight, leaving the sword with no undesirable rattling. The sageo and ito are of cotton. The fuchi, kashira, and menuki seem to be of cheaper materials, but the tsuba is solid. The same is in panels instead of a wrap, but it still allows for a tight tsuka-ito. The point of balance is a bit higher than normal leaving the sword more blade heavy than what is traditional, but nothing bad enough to make it unwieldy. In my personal opinion, this iaito would serve any student of iai who wishes to have the feel of a shinken quite well.

I got this sword and it is pretty darn awesome! I love it because when it is raining outside I can swing this one in the house instead of my sharpened katana I got from this website which would be way too dangerous. This katana is very awesome and I recommend it to anyone who has to have a real practice katana for inside practice or for inside kata practice or for non deadly self defense.

Purchased this iaito several months back. It's held up really well, it's perfect for kata practice. Few really minor imperfections; the dye on the ito has rubbed off a bit so it's kind of a grayish color and not the black it was when I first unpacked it, one of the menuki is placed down by the kashira, and the same is wrinkled so it sometimes scrapes my palm but otherwise it's a fantastic training tool, especially considering the price. Got my eye on the wakizashi iaito next!

Fast service and delivery. Exceptionally well made. Great weight and balance, looking forward to practicing with it.

The sword came promptly and I was kept informed on its progress through the shipping process. I am not an expert on swords myself and cannot speak too much towards the quality of it beyond a layman's understanding, but it is a solid sword and is relatively unmarked - only upon close inspection did I see minor scrapes (which is the only reason this was given 4 instead of 5 out of 5). I would recommend this to anyone who's in my situation - buying an item more for aesthetic purposes than functional ones - but I'm not qualified to actually say whether or not this sword would hold up in a more-functional setting.

Got this to replace my other Musashi Iaito after the saya on it broke (it was pushed off a stage and the saya hit the ground on a corner.... swords, even when bagged, and misguided children do not mix). You really can't beat these iaito for the price. Blade is nice, and fittings are sturdy. Of course I'm going to have to retie the sageo for a proper way to attach it to my hip, but that's of little concern. The tsuka-ito may need to be re-wrapped at some point as well. It moved around quite a bit on my last one. But again, no big deal. Only thing I don't like is that the blade rattles in the sheath a bit when moved side-to-side. Though I certainly was not expecting perfection for a $50 dollar sword. looks great with the wakizashi iaito.

Really surprised by the overall quality for the price. Really good starter economy blade. Slightly point heavy, but not bad at all. The Sageo is cheap, basically a big shoestring, but it severs the purpose.
I purchased one for me as a trial and liked it enough to by one for my 16 year old son to practice with.
