I was hesitant about buying this sword,but at the price I thought I couldn't pass it by. The sword is handmade and excellent craftmanship was put into making it. I looked up the history of the makers of the sword. The Longquan Sword has been made in China for several generations and has been presented to people as a gift of friendship and loyalty. President Nixon was presented one of these swords when he visited China. All I can say is that anyone who purchases swords know that this sword is worth $250.00 to $350.00 at any dealer who sells martial arts weapons and collectable artifacts. The sword is made very well and the case it comes in is ideal for showing off or displaying for others to see. Right now I'm thinking of buying a couple more for gifts to my other friends. Anyone recieving this will be pleased with it.

When this sword came in I was very impressed with the quality for the price. Even the the case it came with gave the whole kit a nice touch. The only reason it did not receive a five out five from me was because the box came in damaged. However as usual overstock immediately sent me a new one and it arrive fairly quickly. Overall I would definitely purchase this item again as a gift.

Very happy with the mirror. Arrived well packaged and not broken. Had bad experience with two previous mirrors purchased from another site,. which arrived damaged. Overall looks very pretty and impressive in the room. The only thing that's not my taste is that you can see the board that the mirrors are attached to, but it's painted high gloss black so it's part of the look. I would also recommend removing the hanging brackets and replacing with a good quality French cleat, just make sure to use the right size screws as not to go through and crack the glass. With French cleat it will hang much nicer, more flush. Nice modern yet classic look. Would recommend

This coat rack was easy to assemble, once i slowed down and paid attention. There is a very minor difference in the length of the screws (as was clearly indicated in the instructions), but i rushed through assembly and had to go back and replace a few with the correct size. The weight of the materials is very sturdy and durable- I carry a heavy oversize purse and fully expected it to pull the rack over, but the rack supports the weight when placed close to the center. It has adjustable footers to level it, which was really helpful. The only drawback I noticed was a bit of a 'line' where the sections of the center rod screw together and somewhat prominent screws holding the arms on. I felt like it made it look a little 'home assembly,' but I'm a little particular to begin with and both of those drawbacks will be covered with coats, bags, scarves, etc. Overall- a great price on a high quality item!

For the price, it'd be hard to find anything better, especially when you factor in shipping. The sheath is decent enough and even has a zipper, but this isn't something you buy to keep in a sheath. I mounted it to a plaque and hung it on the wall LIKE A BAWSS.

Classy, elegant and perfect in my powder room, does not compete with the crystal chandelier over the sink...

Mounted on a column on our back porch, this classically styled hurricane sconce provides a warm candle glow at night. Its narrow profile allows it to be placed on even a small column without protruding past the edges. A reflected image from the glass behind the candle creates a 'double flame' illusion. We like its simple but elegant style.

As other reviewers noted. Nice size and weight. Not real heavy but adequate. Really needed something to hide the new gas logs and this works great. Really "dresses" up the look of my newly updated fireplace and mantle. Arrived quickly and all I had to do was take it out of the box.

I ordered 5 pillow for my dining room and this is by far my favorite. The print is bold, but the colors are classic, which is exactly what I wanted. The colors are true to the monitor display, the seams line up, and the zipper is concealed at the bottom. If I had to change anything, it would be a more full down insert, but for the price, you usually just get a cover, so I can't complain. Out of the box it just needs fluffing to be ready for displaying. Would purchase again, and I wish I had bought more of these! Fabric looks and feels high end in person, much better than big box store pillows with cheap poly inserts and mismatched backs.

My 12 year old black belt got these for Christmas and is REALLY in love with them. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because the picture is very deceiving as the sword cases are not red. They are more of a brownish/burgundy color where the picture clearly shows a bright red color. The "stand" is also quite flimsy (but what 12 year old is paying attention to that?!). In all, they are very nice swords, absolutely beautiful for the price and my son LOVES them!

I don't know about the other reviews complaining about the "wood chips" on the blade etc. I've been a collector for years, and that is common in samurai swords. When they are new, you have to clean the shavings and oil off of the blade. This sword is easily worth $150 or more. It is made by a very reputable company. The blade is high quality steel, and comes with a decently sharp edge. The maintenance kit with the hammer, resin, and cleaning cloth along with the wood storage box is worth the price alone. The box this sword came in is very well made, and appears to be cedar. The sword itself could easily fetch $200 in a specialty sword store. It blows my mind that this sword is available at this price. If you are a collector - get one, or two at this price.

For what you pay, this is a good buy, however there are some details that are NOT correct in the description. I just finished dissasembling mine and heres what I found- Yes, it is full tang, but it has only one pin and the blade is glued in. The tang is extremely rough and unfinished. It's a tight fit because the grip is hammered on. I needed to take mine apart because the fittings were loose and I wanted to see the quality of construction. The sword has a fake wire-brushed "Hamon". It is supposed to be differentially hardened, but the fake hamon covers the real one if it has one. I think I might be able to see a little of it in a tiny spot on the blade. I do not see any evidence of the sword being made of folded steel. There are no layers or patterns at all. The blade is also not very sharp. It doesn't slice paper. It does feel very heavy and solid. The surface and polish of the blade is good. The scabbard is well made. Overall I would say it's a great buy for the price, just know what you are getting. Looks like a strong blade but the fittings are cheap.

I got this for myself and am not happy. This sword set is dollar store cheap plastic. The only thing that was right about this sword was the blade. I wouldn't put this on display in my house. Maybe if they paid me good. This is not for practice or anything else. It looks as if tou touch it to much the dragon will rub off. A few hits and it will fall apart. As Julius Caesar would "Thumb Down.....

Classic oval style mirror with a stylish variation . Only downside is that the two hooks for attaching to the wall are visible from the sides of the mirror.

Item arrived very quickly and just as described. I went online and purchased a upright stand to compliment its beauty, now no one has entered my living room without asking me where i bought it. Very glad I bought this.

I was hesitant, but, finally, decided - what the heck - and I bought it. Most swords are machine made in China. This blade, though I couldn't find a manufacturer's location on it, is clearly above the normal mass-produced swords you find on the internet. The presentation box was awesome, the scabbard, stand, and cleaning kit were of excellent quality. My brother was amazed and excited by this sword. You can, if you so desire, tell everyone you paid five times as much as you did for this blade. Thanks, Overstock - this was a steal of a deal!!!

We bought this for my son's 12th birthday. This is a great sword for the price. The satin display box it was shipped in was flimsy. Overall, we were pleased. A lot of extras for the money.
