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.
