Love it

Simply beautiful. It comes in a nice box. Has a beautiful inlay that shines rainbow colors when it catches the light just right. Solid construction. Sharp and feels sturdy and looks straight. It shipped in 3 days witth standard shipping. I must say I'm pleased with this. Also I love how the blade looks.

This sword is beautiful overall. The pearl dragon makes it look absolutely stunning. The box and bag it comes in are simply stunning and I was fairly pleased with the purchase. However I would like to point out that although it looks great and it isn't a super cheap sword, the sharpness is simply non-existent. This sword is not one that you would use to cut anything. For the price I paid I'm not really sure what I was expecting, however I was disappointed that it could barely pierce cardboard or even make a cut in it.

I received this sword through the grab and go. And although, of course, it was a little beat up it was still beautiful. The sword is balanced perfectly and you can tell real care went into it's crafting. Truly an amazing weapon.

Beautiful Piece

This sword is a beautiful piece of art. Extremely well balanced and very sharp right out of box. For my first big sword purchase over a year ago now, by far is my favorite and most beautiful piece to add to my collection. I look forward to buying another Damascus sword in the near future!

I was not sure how much I'd like this, but I must admit I'm impressed. This sword is elegant as it is deadly, with a blade that I cut myself on almost immediately. The Scabbard, with it's dragon design, is lovely. The Damascus steel is sharper than I can honestly do justice with words. Also, just a side not, but it comes with a nice box too. Overall, great sword, both as a piece of art, and a weapon.

this is a shirasaya not a nodachi. also to johnny hopper, the hole and plug are not rivets that is the hole for the meguki peg to hold the blade in place. the reason there is only one is because this is a sword to be stored. the blade is most likely glued in at the end of the tang. making a nice secure fit.

Well made.

Beautifully made Nodachi with nicely done pearl inlay. The came very sharp and has good balance. It claims to be full tang and from where the balance point is, it would appear to be. The blade is a very tight grained damascus.

Pearl Nodachi

The "Pearl" inlay looks ok but does not look like real inlay. For some reason it looks fake. The Handle looks very bad. There is an unsightly hole with a brown plug through the handle. I suppose this was a bad rivet job with some filler that looks like crap and is not finished. At least they could have filled the hole well and black lacquered over it so it was not evident. The supposed MSRP on this sword was ~$500. NO [email protected]#$*n way!! If you are looking for a real nice looking sword just to hang on the wall or make a center piece don't buy it. You will be disappointed. There are much cheaper swords that "look" better if that is all you are after. With this sort of finish work I have high doubts that the rest of the quality of the sword is much better. After I have had the time to put it to the test I will let folks know the quality on the rest of it. I also highly doubt that the handle and the scabbard are lacquered bone. It appears to me to be fiberglass but who wants to start scraping away the lacquer to prove this? Right?? Too many red flags on this sword for me. SORRY guys. Unless you understand what you are getting then don't buy it.

great sword

this sword is a beauty. Razor sharp blade ,handle and scabbard beautifully done. Even came with a storage box. It would be a shame to use such a nice sword. This was my first shinwa sord. I own many other more expensive ones and this is by far the nicest. Solidly made and looks to boot. Very impressed!
