Very Pleased!

Well I've had this katana for about a month now, and I must say I am very happy with my purchase. The sword came sharp enough to cut but not quite as sharp as I would have preferred. Good solid tsuka (handle) with everything tight and secure. Very slight rattle while in the saya but not at all bad have to shake it fairly vigorously to get the rattle. You really cannot ask for a better sword at this price. Hamon looks really good and adds a touch of authenticity. I even got my name engraved on the blade not a true engraving more like an etching (which is actually better) and looks nice. Once again I am very pleased with this purchase.

Outstanding for the price

Just received my sword, haven't cut with it yet, probably won't for a while. First off let me say this is a beautiful sword for the cost. It has its flaws, but it's not a multi thousand dollar sword. My sword has a couple of small discoloration on the blade, doesn't effect anything so it doesn't bother me. The mekugi are not flush and are in at a bit of an angle, but they are secure, so again, I don't really care. The handle wrap is cotton; functional and price effective to keep the sword price down, so I'm happy with it. The blade is beautiful, the hamon is real, the saya is solid and well finished, it's balanced we'll, razor sharp, and feels great in the hand. You want a display piece? But a display piece. You want a sword to use, even if it's only in the back yard, this is a great deal. And if you damage it, so what...it was inexpensive, but another.

Well made

Just after WWII, the Japanese government ordered all family heirloom katanas to be turned over (public disarmament), and a friend of mine bought one and brought it home in 1945 from the Sasabi Naval Base in Honshu, Japan. It has since passed to me, and comparing the two, this Musashi katana is much better made. It fits in the saya very well, the habaki and tsuba are very tight and not loose. The sword feels balanced and not overly heavy, and you can tell by the scouring on the blade that it's been handled correctly at the forge. For a cheaper-priced katana, I'm very impressed. Also... the blade's edge isn't rounded like most, including my old one from Japan. It's very sharp, handle with care.

Words cannot even describe how happy i am with this product!!!! Everything about this sword demands respect! The order came fast (2-3 days) and the sword itself had no real scratches on it. Unfortunately the Seppa had the word CHINA written on it which i didnt like but its kinda hard too see so i didnt really care. I highly recommend this sword too anyone looking for their first real battle-ready katana
