Wonderful sword, fast shipping
I got myself this katana to learn, and once I received it I was in awe! The fittings are tight and good quality, the blade is razor sharp. The only issue I have found is a small Crack at the mouth of the Saya, making the blade not stay in as tight as it should. I want to glue it back to its proper size but would need some advice so as to not ruin it. In all I am pleased by the product and how fast it got to me,but a little bummed about the crack in the saya
Fit and finish are excllent. Bull horn is more black in color. Weight without saya is 2.4 Came very sharp and a strop made it even sharper. Ito is very tight. Beautiful katana.
I love every bit of the sword it is made with care and precision I recommend ronin katana for any sword you buy.
The craftsmen's ship on this sword is amazing you can tell it was made with care out of the package. You will not find a better website for buying sword than Ronin Katana.
Dojo Pro Katana #3
Wonderful sword. Every bit as nice as it looks, clean lines, amazingly sharp.
Dojo Pro Katana #3
So many times I buy something online and find it isn't as nice in person as it looked online, especially true with swords. This is an exception. Every bit as excellent as it looks online. Amazingly clean, straight lines. Very sharp (Very!) Quality fittings. I have no idea how they produce a sword this nice at this price. I couldn't be more pleased!
Good quality for the price point
The only thing i felt was cheaper then it should have been was the cheap looking butt of the handle. I dont think it would have cost much more if any to put a nicer looking piece here
Dojo Pro Model 3
I am recently new to katanas, but have been into swords for a long time. My wife actually bought me my first "real" sword - a Valiant Kriegschwert - which I adore. If I'm honest, it was my recent acquisition of the Ghost of Tsushima video game (and subsequent re-watching of Yojimbo and Seven Samurai) that made me fall in love with katanas all over again. See, my grandfather had a daisho from Japan, from just after WW2. As I was growing up, it fascinated me. So I went out and first bought a cheap, beater katana off of Amazon because I thought I just wanted something cheap to mess around with. It was a mess indeed, and I quickly realized it lacked all the quality of my grandfather's set. It was almost painful to see something so like those glorious swords, but such a pale imitation. That's when I started to do some serious research and found Ronin. After a lot of internet sleuthing, hemming and hawing, my wife (bless her) once again for my birthday said - just get it. So I did. And I couldn't be happier. I study martial arts at a dojo called Way of the Crane, so the tsuba for the #3 was special for me. The silk ito and sageo were just like the ones from my childhood, and the horn accents on the saya really drove it home. But the blade was something else. Straight, sharp, the geometry just says CUT. Drawing this sword lets you know that something is going to be in more pieces than it was, real soon. But it's responsive and agile, while still wanting to shear through whatever is in front of it. It's a workhorse, yes - but a workhorse like those Budweiser Clydesdales - it's gorgeous. There are now a total of three swords in my collection. A beater, and two amazing blades. The Valiant has a brother now in this Ronin and I couldn't be more pleased. Now I just need to get it some friends!
This sword is amazing! It does not rattle or shake at all. I will probably buy another.
