    minimalist and tough - perfect first katana

    Posted by Alex B on Jan 23rd 2021

    The Dojo Pro Katana Model #12 is a value-oriented mid-range product focused on being as functional as possible for the price. The blade is excellent in terms of quality, balance, sharpness, niku and very tough. The bo hi makes the blade noticeably lighter and has a satisfying tachi kaze - sound of the air being cut. The koshirae are basic and plain, with limited decorative details, but not at all bad. It's comfortable to draw and hold. The ito wrap is very well done. Not my first katana but the one I wish I had bought first. The perfect beginners katana for someone who wants to be able to learn to cut. It's tough and it looks good.

    Fantastic for a first time katana buyer

    Comes sharp enough to cut what it should, strong enough to survive hitting what it shouldn’t. No nonsense simple yet attractive design. It’s everything I could ask for as a starter to the whole sword hobby. The only issue I had is that the scabbard is easy to chip, but that’s not too much of a problem if you’re being careful as you should be.

    High quality cutter

    Posted by Morten Christensen on Oct 25th 2015

    This blade cuts through water bottles and newspapers like it's nothing! It's incredibly sharp and the balance seems nice for a novice like myself. The bohi looks amazing, the saya has a nice finish, and while the diamonds on the handle are not all perfect they're tightly wrapped and seem very solid. My only real gripe with this beautiful sword is that the blade was completely covered in oil and even some sawdust from the saya when I unsheathed it the first few times. All things considered, this is a strong and well made sword for a very friendly price. Highly recommended!

    Amazing in every aspect

    Posted by Jordan Brist on Aug 8th 2015

    This sword is fantastic. The bohi makes a nice sounding tachi kaze and the blade just looks and feels amazing. It is surprisingly sharp right out of the box. The finish on the saya is super awesome, I haven't found any errors on it. The ito and tsuka as a whole are very sturdy and the blade fits very nice and snug into the saya. I am very happy with this purchase.

    A favorite

    Posted by Howard Webb on Jun 4th 2015

    Bought as S&D last year, couldn't find any flaws. First Ronin I bought with bo-hi. The bo-hi makes it feel and sound different. Cut pool noodles, water jugs, and banana trees with it. Pickle chipped the noodles with it! Of the seven Ronins I have, it"s become my favorite.
