The things I appreciate about this katana are: the saya is a nice dark and pale green with black speckles, the blade is razor sharp from the tip almost all the way down to the tsuba, the tsuka and fittings remain tight after disassembly and reassembling, the tang extends almost all the way down the tsuka, the tsuba and fittings are simple yet solid, the tsuka is very comfortable to hold both single and double handed, the sword is well balanced and does not feel front heavy. A couple small flaws: the ray skin is strips and some wood is visible through the tsuka-ito, the saya is not tight at the tip end of the sword and sword rattles when sheathed. Neither is a deal breaker for me, the saya is an easy fix and the tsuka will stay the way it is. I will be cutting with this sword so the flaws are no big deal to me.
This is a good sword for cutting, a couple minor issues but they are cosmetic and will not affect function. Well worth the closeout sale price, I will shop again during their scratch and dent sale.
Money well spent.I already have my eye on my next purchase from you guys.
i got this in the s&d sale, as a factory second i didn't expect much but holy heck this thing really held its own. the blade only started taking damage when i got bored and stared cutting up a stainless steel sword and the damage isn't to horrible if you had sharpening stone you can fix it. only complaint is the grip severely cracked and became loose when i swung missed the target and smacked a tree with the blunt end of the blade. but for a factory second blade i am very impressed. looking forward to buying more swords from ronin.
