I picked this up on the scratch and dent sale, and other than a small scratch on the saya I can't find any flaws with this sword. It is well balanced, the hamon is clear (but not overpowering) and the fittings are great. I haven't tried any cutting with it yet, but plan to soon. This is a great quality sword for a very reasonable price. I am just blown away.
for the price it is worth it, full tang and a solid build. 1040 so is perfect for Zombies when I watch the Walking Dead TV show....
I am overall pleased, but did notice a slight bend in the sword I had to fix. The only thing that I would change is to have an iron or brass tsuba instead of the zinc alloy one that came with it. I am surprised at how many items were out of stock
This is a very good entry level katana for people on a budget, it looks pretty average, feels very good to use
