You will not find better. It's not just great products. Chris is extremely professional and amazing to work with. If you don't believe me, see for yourself. You will be very happy with this sword. Don't waste your time with eBay crap. I learned that the hard way.

Just received the Wakizashi model #2 today. Came in a long rectangular box. Protected by another box which has Styrofoam pieces to prevent from moving. The sword comes in a bag. Not sure exactly what kind of fabric(shiny cotton?). First impression was wow. Saya was scuff free. Ito wrap shining away. Nicely tight. Sageo is wrapped properly. The buffalo horn are a nice touch. Once I pulled the blade out slowly. It was a little tough but that's good sign. I definitely wouldn't want it loose. Even though the blade was glopped with oil, I was able to wipe it off to inspect some more. The blade is plain with no hamon but is flawless. Not razor sharp but that's ok cause I didn't expect it to be. Tsuba seems nicely fit. Sword is well balanced and solid. I would have given it 1 star for taking forever to get here(actually didn't take that long. I was impatiently waiting, haha) but then I changed it to 5 stars cause I got what I wanted
For anyone looking into this wakizashi for the first time. The tsuka isn't meant for 2 hands. I have big hands and I can barely put both on. And the blade is shorter than a katana. Just keep that in mind.
My next purchase will probably be the Dojo Elite Katana. That blade look so beautiful. Unless Ronins tamahagane line looks more convincing.
