What a beautiful sword

I bought this on the recent closeout and decided to buy a second one. The first one arrived yesterday. What a beautiful sword. It is bigger than most other swords by a couple of inches. Very nice Damascus steel blade and fairly sharp. Well made and tight fitting. My favorite sword now.

Beautiful Wood!

The over all appearance of this Shikoto Sword is exstreamly nice! All aspects of fit are very good. I bought this Sword because I like the look of Gold on Black as long as it is tastefully done as on this piece. I got it for it's display Quality and it fits that bill completely. Probably the least important part to most is the wooden sheath but it is the most amazing piece of beautifully finished wood on any sword I own! I question the Damascus blade being real only because my Shinwas are all Damascus and are super smooth, no texture can be felt, none should be. I have Hammer forged steel many times and the surface is always beaten absolutely smooth just like the Shinwas! I don't have any idea where the texture would come from during the forging process and believe it was added after forging. Plus the fact that while most blades are ground to final dimensions the surface would again be smooth! Over all a nice sword though, fitting for a spot on my display shelf! If anyone can fill me in on the texture reasoning if there is one I'd be interested in learning about it!

What a Sword!!

What a great all around sword and piece of workmanship . Having bought and collected many type of Japanese swords over the past couple of years. This piece ranks up there with one of the best made and best looking swords in its price range. You can definitely display this sword or go out and use it with confidence it won't let you down either way. I personally display it proudly in my living room

One of The Best

United Black swords are by far the best I've seen in this price range, they are top quality from tip of blade to tang, I disassembled a United sword and two others and showed them to my wife and a friend they were amazed at the difference in the quality. I recommend United swords over all as they compare to any sword that will cost some what more. Lastly the Kanji symbols on the blade says "United Strong Steel". Thank you Daniel of Nebraska.

Very Nice Sword

I was very pleased with this sword when it arrived based on the fit and finish. After a closer inspection I am even more pleased with this Katana. The Damascus blade is beautiful, not to mention it is very sharp. I was so impressed that I ordered two more for my sons. I would recommend this sword to anyone who appreciates a well made weapon.

Great Sword, but not perfect.

First off, the blade is gorgeous and the balace feels great. I've had other damascus swords that feel like you're swinging a sledgehammer, but this feels wonderful. Taken as a whole, the sword is fantastic, but I do have some gripes. The design pitting on the tsuba looks kind of cheap, the blade is sharp, but could be sharper, the wrap is (as mentioned in other reviews) cloth, and not leather and worst of all, the pegs were not ground down sufficiently. On the sword I received, the peg closest to the tsuba protrudes on both sides nearly a centimeter. I'll have to grind it down myself unless I want my hand impaled each time I use this sword. I suppose with a dremmel, it's possible without messing with the handle wrap, but it's a pain in the butt. I'm very pleased with this purchase, but I wish, for the price, they had paid a little more attention to detail.
