    General overview

    Posted by Brenda Soltis on Dec 13th 2020

    Model 8 RK dojo pro I have owned both a chenness tenchi and a dynasty forge musha. And a few others as well. Most reviews will tell you that for fit and finish the musha wins easily and cuts slightly better. I have not cut with it yet. But it's sharp. Well balanced. And absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Fast delivery- (2 or 3 days). Upon inspection-and looking for flaws- theres about 1/16th inch of rayskin being short and showing the wood underneath... That is almost impossible to see. If you shake it vigorously there's a slight rattle while in the saya so it's not a perfect fit....but close. That's beyond nitpicking. Otherwise, smooth transitions,the ito is wrapped tightly on the handle. The fittings are tight. Buffalo horn on both ends of the saya as well as the eye- something the musha doesn't include. I would most definitely recommend this sword. you won't find many katana at this price that can compare. 5 stars so far. Awesome katana.

    Very nice sword. Has proven devastating to water bottles, pool noodles, and a couple of errant tree limbs. Seems to be a very nice and well made product.

    Awesome #8

    I have abused this poor sword for the last three + years and it's still going strong.It cuts through 1.5'' tree branches pretty effortlessly if you get your technique right. This is a well built sword with a really sharp edge and purposeful balance. On the downside, the tsuba has a lot of sharp edges and the polish on the blade wasn't as good as my first katana ($95.00).

    My 1st Katana

    Posted by Justin on Jul 23rd 2015

    This is the first katana I have ever purchased. I've been looking online for quite sometime and have been trying to pinpoint and ensure I get a high quality, genuine katana. I am very happy with this purchase and looks even better in person. The grip feels and forms perfectly to my hands and the blade feels light. The only thing I personally didn't like was the glossiness of the sheath. I personally prefer a matte look. Overall, this blade was an excellent purchase. I hope to buy another one soon. Cheers
