On paper this is a very good sword: titanium coated so it won't rust, 26 inches for close quarters, and differentially hardened for durability. However the square shaped hand guard is a bit pointy and hurts when wearing this on the back or belt. I should've chosen the Kill Bill one. I really don't like the scabbard though. It's cheaply wrapped and the back strap ripped within 5 minutes of wearing it. The scabbard is also coated with wax on the inside which prevents the blade from getting dull but since the blade is black, it really shows up on it. Overall the sword itself is a great sword and I would buy again. It just needs a better scabbard which isn't a huge deal.
Just got my sword yesterday and was overall impressed. Good strong blade. Good edge. Great balance between blade and grip weight. Makes for great handling. Blade length is perfect for close quarter combat. Nice tight cotton wrap on handle. All fittings are snug and secure. My only real disappointment with this sword is the use of fake leather as opposed to real. The pleather used on the sheath fittings and shoulder strap could never hold up to any real use. It's weak a d easily broken. For a sword with a $10 difference to a dojo pro I expected better.
