    A wonderful sword at a great price.

    Posted by Dlatrex Swords on Jun 13th 2023

    This sword was recommended to me by Matthew Jensen, and it more than exceeded my expectations for functionality and aesthetics. In the sub $200 category buyers almost always need to compromise on how a sword looks or if it will be able to perform tameshigiri, and have adequate durability. This sword looks great for its price and holds up wonderfully as a backyard cutter. Infact it even holds up favorably when comparing it to antique nihonto. I have a short video review for those interested in greater details, but on the whole this is a very easy endorsement.

    Ronin Katana Entry Level Model 9

    Posted by Brandon on Feb 20th 2023

    Beautiful katana. I couldn’t be happier. Ronin Katana has earned their good reputation. This katana is a wonderful piece for the price. The real hamon by itself is worth the price of admission in my opinion and it is spectacular to look at. I’m not great at test cutting but I’ve cut a few water bottles and it held up perfectly well. I’m sure it is a better cutter than I am. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a functional katana.

    The real deal

    Posted by William on Aug 2nd 2022

    My daughter wanted a real katana for her birthday. One that will stand up to cutting tests. These are the real deal. Blade is stout, sharp, well ground, and springs just like it should. Handle wrap is nice and tight, rayskin is nice. All fittings are tight and well made. It’s a great deal for what we paid and she LOVES it. Couldn’t be happier with the sword, or dealing with Ronin Katana. Ordered on Monday, got here Tuesday! Packed securely, nice presentation.

    Very Nice!

    Technically the sword was a scratch and dent but all it had was a very small saya scratch that I easily covered up with a sharpee. The sword was made very well from end to end. Beautiful blade, no saya rattle (fits very snug), really tight ito, very well put together in every respect. This is my new dojo practice sword and I really like it and recommend the RK series swords.

    #9 Green and gorgeous

    Honestly pics do no justice for 130$ I cannot begin to explain the fit and finish of this thing. There is the smallest burr on the mune down about 4 inches from the kissaki but easily fixed so if that is the only error I can find well I’m very happy! Ronin makes great quality. Stop looking and looking if your a beginner just get a ronin entry level period. These and the musashi are best bang for the buck. My next will be a dojo. Ronin is the best sword buyers guide gives valuable info!

    As I put in all caps above, it's an amazing katana. It stood up to some heavily rolled and overnight soaked newspaper rolls (sometimes, these can be tougher than tatami.) My only complaint was that the habaki and tsuba were a little loose even before cutting. I don't think this is due to manufacturing or stocking, I think it might be due to the shipping process. Chris was really good about the shipping though and got it to me in less than a week so I'm very happy. I plan to purchase more from Ronin in the future

    Not a bad katana for the price. Very surprised at the quality. Would like to one day see a matching wakizashi and tanto.
