I really like this set. It is reasonably priced. I do wish they were slightly bigger but they are really nice and a good quality.My husband has them on display in our room. He wants to add more to his collection and he is happy with these. they're quite lovely to look at.

This was sent directly to Recipient, who was initially challenged arranging and preparing the product for the final display. The final results were amazing, and graces the new office setting perfectly. It brought a lot of "chi" to its environment, very pleasing to the eye. Great product for the price, with the added FREE SHIPPING feature! Thank you, very pleased with this product. Would send again.

I received my sword yesterday and was totally impressed by the craftsmanship that went into it. It is simply beautiful in every aspect. I also loved the wood storage/presentation case and the sword care kit that came with it (which I immediately put to use to clean and oil the blade. There are very good video instructions on how to do this at Youtube). This was a great first-time Overstock.com transaction for me and I have already recommended this sword to a fellow taekwondo student.

After UPS screwed up the delivery of this item and I had to go to downtown Los Angeles to retrieve it, I opened the box to find a dark brown stained wooden case. Opening it up revealed the sword in it's black bag, a small cleaning kit with powder ball, awl/brass hammer, mineral oil and a soft cloth. I took the sword out of it's bag and was immediately impressed y the detail of the wrapping, the fitted pins holding the blade in place inside the handle, and of the blade itself. This sword is extremely sharp right out of the box, but covered in grease and sawdust from the wooden scabbard, but cleaned up very nicely with the enclosed kit. I was a little disappointed when, after cleaning and sheathing it, I redrew the blade to find it covered with grease and sawdust again. I imagine this will go away with time and use as the offending materials work their way out of the scabbard, but it's kind of a pain to have to clean it every time I show it off. I did not buy this sword as a display piece, I bought it for home defense, and I feel better already just having it around. It's heavy, solid (no wobble or give to the blade or fittings at all), and reliable. I'm going to shop around and see if I can't find a replacement scabbard, but if you need a sword for recreational or personal USE, this is your deal. All in all, totally worth the money, this sword will be with me for many, many years.

It is so terribly made, it doesn't even try to be nice. Let's start with the best part, first. The firebox. Visually it makes an attractive approximation of a fire. It never looks real, but doesn't look cheesy. The compliments end there. The worst part is the wood mantle. It's so bad, I'll cover it at the end. That is, if you're still reading by then . . . Firebox: The fan/blower in the firebox sounds as though it is suspended on raw metal, as in no bearings. It makes disconcerting rattling and brushing noises. These noises don't resemble soothing in any way shape or form. They sound like the blower is about to fall out. You should hear nothing but the whooshing sound of air. The rattling is so loud, it actually drowns out any sound of moving air. Nowhere in the instructions or on the realflame.com website is there a rating for heat output or power consumption. I can tell you why. Had they supplied a rating, you wouldn't have bought it. It's that poor. Think of it this way: It runs on a standard 120V / 15A outlet. Using standard electrical resistance type elements, it will put out no more heat than a hair dryer, as a hair dryer maxes out the outlet. Just imagine heating a room with a hair dryer. Had they used something like ceramic heating elements or another technology, it might have been a reasonable amount of heat. Even compared to a hair dryer, this realflame heater can't keep up. Plan on standing right next to it, else you'll never know it's on. It's funny, too, because there are caution stickers all over it, warning of the heat. Really? If it ever got hot, the stickers would burn right on the metal casing. They don't. Nothing ever gets even hot enough to be uncomfortable to the touch. Sure, if you restricted the airflow it would be dangerous, but in normal use it's never more than warm. Wood mantel: The best thing I can say is about the color, and it's not good. It's far darker in person than in the picture. Know this up front. Pecan? Looks nothing like pecan. Their pecan finish is the color of dark mahogany. Therefore, I can't even imagine just how dark their dark mahogany is. The two corner vertical pieces of the mantel that look like nice heavy pieces of wood? They're an illusion. Rather than being the wood posts they try to visually evoke, each one only has two sides, and each side made of thin partial board bolted together at the front corner. Like an L-shape. The side pieces are so badly warped, that even using the supplied bolts and brackets, you can't get them to straighten out and line up with the front pieces. Therefore the corner has a gap where the two pieces meet, from top to bottom. Not attractive. Cabinet makers use cabinet-grade MDF (medium density fiberboard) on select panels because hardwood will bow, twist, warp, and expand/contract unevenly. So, certain pieces should be MDF with a veneer because MDF is prized for it's stability of shape. In a mantel, it should be all hard wood. This is not. This is 100% MDF with a veneer. The MDF used is such low grade, it twists, bows, and warps. That's right, the material known for it's flatness and stability has warped and twisted. And, far worse than any piece of hard wood would have. The fasteners (bolts and brackets) used to assemble the 11 pieces that make up the mantel are good. Yet, you can't screw bolts into MDF, they would instantly strip out. So, threaded metal inserts are pressed into the MDF for the bolts to screw into. The threaded inserts are so cheap, when you attempt to tighten the bolts, the threaded inserts just pull out of the MDF. All of the cosmetic pieces are bolted to each other, even if they're merely cosmetic. The only structural pieces in the entire mantel are the two vertical strips that the firebox bolts to. However, rather than bolt those two structural pieces to the rest of the MDF, they're nailed with the smallest brad nails I have ever seen. They must be about 24 gage, they only protrude about 1/4" into the next piece of wood, and there are hardly any of them used. It's a joke. The cosmetic pieces are bolted together while the structural pieces are poorly tacked in place. The top horizontal part of the mantel has trim all around it, secured with the same tiny brad nails. When I attempted to bolt the top onto the rest of the mantel, rather than close the gap between the two pieces, the brad nails gave way and the trim pieces fell off, leaving the top piece just sitting there with nothing to secure it. All of the through-bolts in the mantel, save two, go through 2 pieces of wood. Those other two go through 3 pieces of wood. Wouldn't you think they would provide two bolts longer than the rest? They didn't. No surprise, those last two bolts are too short. They can't even reach through far enough to get threaded into the threaded insert. Again, these two secure the top of the mantel. So, of the four bolts securing the top of the mantel, two are too short, and the other two screw into tacked on trim pieces that have broken free. Packaging and defects: At the factory one of the front pieces was damaged. It had to be at the factory because it was all sealed in thin foam wrapping paper that was undamaged. Yet, it passed inspection and was put into the package. Another piece was damaged during shipment, and NOT by the shipper. It was damaged because it was improperly packed. See, all the pieces are flat. They are laid in the box and separated by thin foam wrapping. They're all different lengths, as well. Yet, there are no foam inserts to accommodate the different lengths of the pieces. So, once packaged up and sent on it's way, the short pieces inside the box are free to slide around and smash into other pieces while in transit. I just can't comprehend how anything costing nearly $500 could be so poorly packaged. Even the cardboard was thin single layer. The firebox? It's package was double corrugated cardboard with thick foam supports. The firebox is metal. You would think realflame would have protected the delicate fragile wood as well or better, not less. If you want one of these, don't plan on using it as a heater. Just turn on the fake flame and appreciate the faux fire image. If you're going to do that, you can easily get a screen saver for your computer that does the same thing for a fraction of the cost.

I purchased the samurai sword set as a gift to my taekwondo teacher. I was surprised at the attention to detail. The criss cross wrapped handles, the golden dragon on the scabboard and the solid carbon steel blades, and metallic details were beautiful. The item was well packaged and it arrived in perfect condition. For the price I definately got my moneys worth and my teacher was impressed. The only thing I thought was not of high quality was the wooden stand.

This is the perfect table centerpiece. The vase color is rich with variations that highlight the grain of bamboo. The lilies come to life with misting and yield readily to molding to your desired shape and design. It is a great purchase that I highly recommend.

Absolutely great sword! It is sharp and is full tang. It has a nice balance to it as well. The box was very nice to. I can't believe the price. This is a steal. It could be a high end sword.

I bought this for my boyfriend for Valentines Day because he studies martial arts and is extremely knowledgeable about weapons and he loved the sword. He only found ONE imperfection which was that the sword falls out of it's cover after removing it a few times.. it gets kind of loose. But he fixed it very easily. I was extremely impressed with this sword, especially for the prices! You won't regret it. It's heavy was 10 pounds pulling it out of the packaging. Including the cleaning kit and wooden display box.- which by the way was not carefully crafted however we liked the imperfect look to it. But if you want a sword to actually carry around and play with this one seems to be working for that purpose. If you want something for decoration you might get a prettier one. This one is more plain and durable.

I was expecting better quality from so called Japanese swords but low and behold the first thing I see is Made in China , and equally so the sheaths were cheap plastic, as were the flimsy hand guards, the only positive thing I can say about them is the blade is actually metal. The other people that 'Reviewed" are either flat out lying about the product or are completely ignorant to what a quality sword is supposed to feel and look like. In short its a cheap decoration that does an injustice to the Kenjutsu these swords claim to hail from.

This decorator item is spectacular. The assembly instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I was so proud of myself after assembled and displayed. It looks just like the picture displayed on line, but you have the ability to change it a bit to suit your own taste. Linda B., M., CA

This sword looks amazing and feels great! The only problem I have is that it isn't as sharp as I expected it to be, but I'm not really expecting to have to cut a lot with it, so that's okay. Other than that, it's perfect. Definitely worth it.

Quality exceeded expectations. For the price, it was a perfect 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.

This required a lot of work to put together. Since I, like some others am not very crafty - it was too much work for me, especially since I wasn't expecting. I couldn't quite get it like the picture so I'm disappointed with that. Otherwise, the vase is beautiful.

This sword was as advertised. A very nice blade and handle. No plastic, no cheap metal. Came wrapped in a nice cloth bag nestled inside a lined wooden box. Also included a paper explaining the history and parts of the sword. A cleaning kit was also included. I would have given it five stars if it had come with instructions for how to use the cleaning kit. It was easy enough to look it up online. There was also some adhesive stuck to the outside of the cleaning kit box, but it came off with a bit of Goof Off.

Had to spray water and open petals. It's delicate but well worth the time and effort.
Every Valentine's Day, hearts, flowers, and lace are often all you see for sale, making it easy to find gifts for girls. Finding Valentine's Day gifts for boys, however, might seem like a challenge. But it isn't really that much more difficult to buy gifts for boys than girls. You can actually give a lot of similar things; just choose items that he would like and use less feminine packaging. After all, a gift just needs to show that he is special to you.
Sunglasses were invented in China centuries ago and came to Europe with Marco Polo. Initially, sunglasses were used to hide one's eyes and thoughts. In the mid-1700s, they began to be used as eye protection, and, in the early 20th century, they really began to take off in popularity with sun-struck beachgoers. In the decades that followed, sunglasses became, like any clothing or accessories, a fashion statement. In the 21st century, both protection and style are equally important. This sunglasses buying guide contains basic information to help you wade through the available options so you can choose the sunglasses that work best for you.
