If you have no plans of going to Battle (joke), this is the one to purchase. It has nice craftsmanship for displaying on wall or in stand. The sword has nice weight and balance. I have seen other swords for three times the money and not feel as good in the hand as this one. Nice product for the novice collector or martial arts fan in your life. Also know that the blade is sharp but I would not try to chop anything with it. Excellent Samurai swords have two types of metals forged together for strength. I'm sure this sword is massed produce but still a nice product.
This Samurai Sword, was shipped with reg. service around Christmas and was received quickly. The Sword was great my boyfriend loved it and took it in to his Martial Art instructor to look over and they both agreed it was very well crafted!! If he only knew I paid so little for it he would have fainted... lol ya, overstock.com
no kidding was i surprised.... i got it as a xmas gift and didnt open the box since it was received on dec 22. so i just wrapped it. i was stunned to see how amazing it looked, and everyone else in the room thought it looked amazing too. the picture really doesnt justify how nice and authentic this sword is. i am very impressed and he was very satisfied
CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR MY 16 YEAR OLD SON. HE COLLECTS KNIVES, SWORDS, ETC. SO HE KNOWS HIS BLADES. HE WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE WORKMANSHIP AND STYLING. I AM VERY PLEASED AT THE PRICE AND QUALITY. I COULD NOT FIND A SIMILAR PIECE ANYWHERE FOR $20-$30 MORE, AND THEY WERE WAY LOWER QUALITY.
