I love this katana so much. Great quality and very sharp and beautiful
Great sword, as I expected before buying it ! Not disapointed at all.
This is a good quality product for your buck
Even the entry level sword is beautiful, sharp, and battle ready! I will be ordering again from this company, as I’m very happy with my purchase. I’m going to put this one through some tameshegiri. I know it will perform great. Thank you Ronin Katana!
This sword is really good quality for the price point. Everything is fit really well, it's comfortable and well made.
Hello everyone, I am quite new to sword collecting but I do have many years of martial arts experience having been an amateur MMA fighter and boxer. Now, I am just a student nurse blowing off steam by collecting katanas. Anyway, when looking into buying an entry-level katana, I came across the RK#13 and I have to say that I am really happy that was the case. The RK#13 has a tight construction in which all the furniture feels specially made for this individual sword. The furniture itself is exceptionally crafted and features a wind motif. The blade is straight, sharp, and has what looks like a beautiful genuine hamon. In hand, the RK#13 feels very wieldable and a pleasure to swing. The RK#13 lives up to its wind motif as it effortlessly pierces the air to strike its target.
I purchased this sword after viewing a destruction test by reviewer Mathew Jensen on his you tube channel. I own several Dojo Pro Katana's from Ronin Katana however i wanted an entry level blade that had the fit and finish I expected from Ronin. It didn't disappoint. I recommend the entry level blades for persons who are just starting out in Martial studies or just want to have fun cutting water bottles in their backyard.
I’m giving it a 4 star because there is a little rust (small dots at least 4 spots) on the blade. Also, Every time I sheath back in the sword it always catches dirt from the saya. Im not sure if that’s normal. Other than than, it’s a beautiful sword and very sharp too.
