    • Fantastic sword!
      Verified Purchase

      I'm no expert on swords in general, but being paranoid I did a lot of research on purchasing one before I got this (a great place to look for guidance is Sword Buyers Guide Online). I was nervous, initially, because I didn't know what the manufacturer was (It's a reputable one, btw). It had all the right stuff (folded steel, mid-grade carbon steel, differentially hardened, full (not 'rat tail') tang), so I took a gamble and went for it. I was not disappointed in the least. I have not put it through any abusive tests, but I've cut plenty of milk jugs well with no problems and the sword is still holding up well. I have not tried cutting the box it came in (standard fare, apparently, when you get a new sword) since I want to wait until after the 30 return period but I have little doubt that it will do well (cardboard is a stiffer target than milk jugs FYI). The sword weighs 2lb 9oz and the point of balance is 6 inches or so from the tsuba (I didn't measure it), making it heaver than I initially expected but fantastic for cutting. The wrap is "shoelacey" but that's what you get for a cheap sword; not a big deal for a beginner. I can't comment on the edge geometry since i'm no expert, but I do really like the wavy grind pattern on the edge. I didn't measure the blade width but it feels pretty thin (which is good, btw. Sword's aren't generally very thick) It did arrive with some slight blemishes near the tip but they are hardly a big deal. Also, YOU DO NEED TO CLEAN IT when it comes out of the box. There are several great videos online that show you how to do that. Over all, this is a fantastic buy and if you want to own a real deal sword this is absolutely perfect. Ignore the negative reviews; I suspect they're coming from troll country. ;D

    • Nice quality for the money
      Verified Purchase

      I was actually surprised when I received this it is good quality for the money the box it comes in was cheap and slightly damaged but that's no big deal to me overall I think it's underpriced for what you're getting

    • Was a great gift!!
      Verified Purchase

      This sword was delivered quickly and was a gift to my son for Christmas. It had a good feel and weight to it and was sharp right out of the box! My only complaint is that the box it comes in was cracked on one end. I would suggest Overstock put a thicker piece of styrofoam or something else to help protect it. It isn't noticable and can be fixed with a tiny amount of glue, so not worth sending it back for another in our case. I was skeptical that for the price we would be getting something super cheap looking/feeling, but this was a good purchase.

      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.

    • Worth every dime and then some.
      Verified Purchase

      I don't know about the other reviews complaining about the "wood chips" on the blade etc. I've been a collector for years, and that is common in samurai swords. When they are new, you have to clean the shavings and oil off of the blade. This sword is easily worth $150 or more. It is made by a very reputable company. The blade is high quality steel, and comes with a decently sharp edge. The maintenance kit with the hammer, resin, and cleaning cloth along with the wood storage box is worth the price alone. The box this sword came in is very well made, and appears to be cedar. The sword itself could easily fetch $200 in a specialty sword store. It blows my mind that this sword is available at this price. If you are a collector - get one, or two at this price.

    • Awesome sword & more!
      Verified Purchase

      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.
