I bought these swords as a birthday gift for my husband! They looked great and of course the price was great as well! Read all the reviews and description of swords, so I thought I would take a chance and purchase! When I received them they were nice on the exception of 2 things! The first thing I noticed is that the shiny parts on the holder and handle were PLASTIC!!! That was a huge disappointment to me, especially after seeing and holding others swords that were metal in these areas!! And no where in the description this was mentioned!! Also the biggest sword, the blade was loose and wobbly when we took it out of the package!! Other than that the sword blades were fabulous and sturdy!!!

If you're into swords and weaponry as display objects, you can't go wrong with the Ying Yang 3 Piece set. Price alone seals the deal since the difference between just the 40 in sword and the whole set is about 10$. Being in college shouldn't stop you from decorating your room to fit your style

The swords are beautiful and well sharpened. Very sturdy. The stand is cheap though. id recommend getting your own. It's wobbly and a pain to push into the right place. Overall product is good though.

I ordered the product on a Friday evening a received the product on the following Wednesday. The product perfectly matched the online photos shown. I read one other review that mentioned the "color" was a darker color than displayed on the photos.....I found the swords to be of a brillant red orange color exactly matching the online photos....I am very satisfied with this product the quality exceeds the price paid by far!

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.

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.

The pillow is really cute, but a bit overpriced, as it is very simple, small and not filled with down. It looks exactly like the photograph. I ordered it because it coordinates perfectly with a chair in our formal living room that was otherwise almost impossible to match.

I bought this sword for my boyfriend, who turned 20, as a fun birthday present. I didn't realize that it was extremely sharp and pretty dangerous. It cut through the sheath and part of the cardboard box that I received it in. I was expecting it to be more dull and more like a toy. But it's real metal. My boyfriend really liked the gift a lot. I just wish it wasn't as sharp. Overall, it's great!

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.

Bring honor to your home with a hand-forged Japanese Samurai sword -[pwz] Be sure to study up on your feng shue Sword placement in the home is extremely important to Prosperity an Health. Collectible sword features a high-tempered carbon steel blade - [pwz] blade is of average composition and presents well. Razor sharp sword comes with a solid wood scabbard - [pwz] not hardly, although definitions vary as do opinions, what they call razor sharp, I call it barely sharp. Scabbard is wrapped in genuine ray skin and heavy gauge cotton for superior grip - [pwz] as I am not able to test the claim, I’ll have to take their word for it, it looks good though. Full tang - [pwz] yes Blood carving line on blade - [pwz] nice touch since the Japanese were the first to incorporate the feature into their weapons, for obvious reasons. Comes with a solid wood display box, cleaning kit and protective cover. - [pwz] probably the best feature of this buy, although the bottle of blade oil had spilled out in shipping and the cover is not the customary raw silk but it looks good none the less. Overall length is 41 inches – [pwz] the length varies, the one I received is 40.2 inches, Blade length is 28 inches – [pwz] as above, the blade is actually a little shorter than advertised, but nothing to get in a twist about, after all these are not from master craftsmen (made in china) in the manner of the Saichō monks of Japan or other sects for that matter. All in all I give it a B+ it looks good on the wall and it has some weight to it when handled. Since it is for decorative use it’s was a good buy.

These pillows were a great price for the pair. Same style/quality from other retailers would have been double the cost or more! Love the subtle sheen of the fabric - can be used in a casual space but also look luxe enough to use in a more formal room. I bought the navy and am thinking about getting another color.

I liked everything about this sword except for the handle. The wood on the handle is too small for the machetes grip. When you hold it, it hard to get a good grip with the metal part of the handle protruding out past the wood attached to it. It makes it really unconfortable if your holding it for any length of time. For the price it's a good buy. I suggest making your own handle wood covering if you buy 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.

I would say the quality is 8/10 but for the value I gave it five stars for two simple reasons: it looks great as a decorative piece and IT IS usable with a bladed edge. Great price for the sword, comes with little accessories and a storage case. If your looking to buy a sword, I recommend buying this one. Note: Sword is greasy and may be covered in sawdust. Made in China and has that branded on the blade.

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!

These pillows are stuffed with a fiber that is not stiff. They are very squishy and are perfect for a sitting room but they will get out of shape quickly in a room you use a lot. They are very soft and luxurious and are better for a bed than a couch because they will get completly out of shape if used all the time. They are for a formal setting and make a room feel rich.

Only problem was slight damage to the wooden gift box, and the oil container had sprung a leak and there was oil soaked everywhere in the cleaning kit box.
