I have to say that I am very much pleased with this #11 katana. The fit and finish is very nice and well worth the price and will exceed your expectations for a entry level katana. It came nicely sharp and the hamon is really nice and visible which makes you want to show it off. You can't go wrong with this or any of the offerings that Ronin katana offers. I will be purchasing yet another in the future.
For the price, and the price point this katana is in, this gets 5 stars, at least the particular one I received. The fit is great, no loose tsuka as of yet, not too much rattle in the saya, The ito wrap is pretty tight and the diamond patterns are very consistent. The katana is very light and feels almost like a toy, due to its lightness, but it definitely is not. As a starter katana to learn kenjutsu, this katana is a great value. Ronin Katana, please bring back the hammer forged katanas.
Great quality and sharp. No wobble , no play. Very nice for the price. If you want a katana to cut with, this is a great start.
Best beginner katana I've had.nice visibility hamon and it comes razer sharp.the kissaki has an even polish too.ito does not lose its color with use.
Great Sword, sharpened and the hamon looks excellent
