    Well made

    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.

    Model #3

    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

    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.

    Great sword, some minor issues

    I've really only heard great things about Ronin katanas. I think that holds true. Very excited to get this katana so quickly from Texas. It was a quick ship. Upon opening it though I was surprised to see so many 'made in china' labels: on the box, the sword bag, etc. VERY glad it doesn't say made in china on the seppa or habaki, so many out there do. I'm guessing that some of the parts are purchased and then assembled by Ronin. They did a good job too. It's solid, everything is tight and smooth. The brass had some tarnish to it upon opening, after using some Flitz it cleared right up. For some reason I thought all Ronin blades had a bo-hi, and was happy to see it didn't have one. The blade looks great after a polish to get some of the long term storage wax off the blade, though it's troublesome removing the remnant in the Saya though, but I'm sure over time it will disappear. Biggest complaint is that the cord or Sageo end on one side is fraying badly. The other is held together with thin string. It must have come off after opening, even though I'm careful with my swords. Within a day it had loosened and fell off. So for now its held together with a hair tie until I figure out a way to make it permanent and not unravel any more... As far as the cutting goes, it is sharp but needs some more sharpening, so that was a little disappointing to those who might want to use it right away. The buffalo horn ends of the saya look great! Good color and polish. One minor scuff on the kurikata. Overall it feels and looks good, and after some sharpening performs well. Good steel for a fair price.
