The Dragon Samurai 3-piece Black Katana Sword Set looks very good as a “decorative piece”. This set fits the ornamental bill “very” nicely and it complements my living room well. If you want a sharp sword that will cut, you should not order this set. Plus, I don’t want anything around that someone can easily hurt me with in my own house. All of my guests comment on how they love the katana sword set.
