I’m novice on this but sword was very well build super sharp and fast shipping . As I said I’m novice on swords . Have not sliced or diced anything with it yet . Was supp to be decoration for my loft but now I have to figure a way to secure ( in wall or display ) this and two other ones that also were great ( one Katana one tanto ) so no one gets hurt . And maybe I get inspired to take some sword lessons
Fast shipping, product as described. Katana was very sharp, no scratches, well balanced. very well packed. amazing price for the quality.
this is the second ko katana #10 I've purchased. Excellent quality IMHO
Well packed,tight fittings, tight ito, habaki doesn’t shift, no scratches on the blade, no dings or scratches on the saya. The habaki style looks nice. The blade is pretty sharp. The balance feels good. BUY IT! LoL
This katana came fully sharpen and oiled. I had to wiped off excess oil. It is a balanced katana. Sword is short enough for indoor practice and would recommend it if you want a katana that is shorter than the normal length
Very stout which makes or a little slower. Ito wrap is superb - as is everything else. Blade didn't come too sharp though. I can't help but think a bohi would help this item out. It's a little front heavy. Very nice piece though.
With out a doubt hands down best katana I own. You will be impressed
This sword came in really solid condition. The weight and balance are a dream. The tsuka, ito, and other fittings on the sword itself are tight as could be, which I really appreciate. I only have 3 criticisms which I'm hoping are easily resolved. 1) the blade didn't come SUPER sharp from what I can tell. I wiped the oils off the blade with rice paper. To test the sharpness, I folded the rice paper over the edge and ran it along the blade to see if it would cut through—it didn't. I'm convinced that one could easily "cleave into" a target, but I'd prefer it to be able to cut THROUGH one. As someone who's been training in kenjutsu for over 5 years, I know how important form is to a cut, but sharpness of your blade is almost equally paramount. I'm not really experienced with sharpening, but I really hope to resolve this issue because I see a lot of potential in this sword. 2) although the buffalo horn koiguchi is nice to look at, it doesn't fit over the habaki quite as snugly as I would like (I can always use a cheaper, but tighter-fitting saya, but still) 3) The tsuba of the blade is a bit of a turn-off for me, personally. I like the shape and color, but the edges of the design are pretty jagged, and have already scratched up my right thumb. I tried replacing it with a guard from another sword, but the nakago was too thick :/ You probably won't find a better kodachi for the same price because overall this sword is really well-constructed.
very nice perfect size
