Authentic details such as the antique-finished tsuba, menuki and kashira add historic provenance while the brass habaki adds a splash of elegance.

Great sword

Very well made and tight. Sharp, sturdy, and well balanced. Excellent sword for the money or much more. Highly recommended.

A Great Sword without Breaking the Bank

Great value for the money. Weight feels nice, tachi kaze is loud, the pics and video just don't do it justice. The tsuba is darker than what is shown in the pics, which I think makes it look nicer. The saya is well finished, very glossy, but is a fingerprint magnet, so if that bothers you get the black one. The kissaki is well defined, and looks proper, unlike those cheaper katana. My favorite part of the sword is the hamon, which really stands out against all the etched/brushed ones. There's just nothing like a true hamon. My biggest two complaints are the fact that the rayskin isn't perfectly meshed with the fuchigane, the part near the tsuba. And Etching on the Seppa. I think the etching would be better placed on the Nakago along with the craftsman's name. PROs Value for the money Tight fitting saya Loud Tachi Kaze Bohi (if you want a lighter katana) Good well defined Kissaki True Hamon/deferentially hardened Well oiled Saya is well finished, and fitted to the sword Great sword for customization work CONS Ray skin wrap isn't a perfect fit near the Tsuba. Mekugi pegs stick out a TINY bit too much Not as well polished and reflective slight rattle in the lower half of the Tsuka Maru/Muku kitae (mono steel, no lamination) Seppa has "China" and "Musashi" etched onto it.

Good value for money

This sword is very nice overall for its price range. Blade is sharp, but not exceptionally so. For the money, very good value, Nicely executed workmanship. Would recommend it over many others in it's range.

Beautiful katana for the price. Everything was very solid feeling. Nothing loose. Everything was in mint condition except the Saya had 2 small scratches on it which both were on the same side so no big deal for display purposes. Other than that very, very pleased with this low budget katana.

This is my first katana that i've purchase, so take that for what it may be. It came looking even more fantastic than it seemed online! the handle felt solid, no rattling or looseness, pretty much everything feels sturdy and strong. The only drawback was that they wrapped the blade in oil-soaked saran wrap, which must be for a specific reason, i heard someone else say theirs did too and damaged the blade, but i haven't seen any damage as of yet. Blade looks sharp, but not incredibly so, i tried doing a paper cutting test and couldn't make it work. All in all a fantastic start to my collection and definitely happy to call this my first Katana.

Dear Sirs,
I would like to review the 1060 carbon steel Musashi line of Katana.
As far as value goes,these katana are a great deal for the money.With a real ray skin same and a true temper line these katana are a great budget entry for someone who wants to buy a katana and not break the bank.
These swords have bohi or blood groove and are a bit light for heavy cutting but for Iai Jutsu or Pool noodles and water bottles these swords are great.
The saya could be tougher as there is no protection for the bottom of the saya.I dip mine in a liquid rubber used to coat tool handles that can be found in most hardware stores.
Remove the handle and you will find the mei done with an engraver.The blade is numbered as is the handle and come with a certificate.
The handle is double pinned with bamboo mekugi.
Enjoy this blade,I enjoy mine.

My starter sword, however having handled many battle ready and very expensive swords in the past I could not be happier with this Bamboo Warrior. I've watched videos on it and they've all been positive and so is my review. It feels very quality, it doesn't feel like an $80 sword, it feels like a $300 sword. Balanced and sturdy. Love it, you can really feel the quality when you're holding it.

It's Musashi....what else can I say? If anyone reading this owns any 1060 musashi katanta you know this is amazing! But for those who don't, with a flick of my wrist, this will cut inch thick rope clean! and with both hands, any tameshigiri mat is toast! Plus it's beautiful in every way a sword can be! It's a functional work of art for under $ it!

I bought this after reading a very positive review and am extremely happy I did. The sword showed uo the day following the order which was great. The sword was as close to perfect as you could ask for in a sword at this price point. beautiful hamon and sharp!!! The Saya is a beautiful red and the sword feels really great in the hand. I had a issue with some low hanging apple tree branches in the yead so out I went sword in hand to do some pruning the Samurai way. I handle had to swing to sever 1" limbs like butter. After cleaning the sap off the blade it didn't have a mark on it!
Fabulous sword with terrific customer service, can't beat it. I'm going to buy another Katana right here!!
