(5 out of 5)
I got this sword recently and I have to say, it surpassed my expectations. The pink cotton wrap is tight and even, very well done, and the blade itself it extremely beautiful. The edge is fairly sharp, sharp enough for melons and other things like that, which is all I'll being using it for. The only issues I have is that there appears to be a large amount of gunk inside the scabbard. Every time I draw the sword, there's a whole bunch of grime on it that I have to wipe off, which is drying up the oil. Hopefully the gunk will eventually clear out, but as the sword itself is fantastic I'll keep it at 5 stars.

Cotton on handle was wrapped slightly less than tight, but al in all, a beautiful sword...

Got it for my wife, because she loves pink.
It states that it is real Ray skin.
I have many katana with Ray skin, and they are all like sandpaper to the touch. And I have a lot with faux ray, and they are smooth to the touch.
This Pink Katana is smooth.
I do not think the skin is real on this Katana.
If I am wrong about this, let me know.
I have been buying swords now for over 40 years and I am not a novice. But who knows, maybe they have a way to make it smooth now.
