I have many Katanas, all of which are really good but this is one i primarily use. Ive used it quite a lot already and it will be used a lot more.
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!
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.
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.
