Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
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.
Got it as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, everybody was impressed by it and he was in shock! He love it! No plastic or lacquer, has weights and a lot of presence. The wood box got screwed up by shipping but overstock immediately send a replacement. Overall Awesome good product and perfect unbeatable costumer services. Thanks Overstock!
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 blade is traditionally hand-forged and folded powdered steel that has been differentially tempered. We will research the exact specifications and will provide a more specific answer as soon as possible.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 18, 2012
