Good sword overall in my opinion. Used it a few times on some softer materials (only because i wouldn't trust using it on hard woods/surfaces). Some simple sharpening made it easier to cut with, which wasn't a problem since i like sharpening things. I got this sword when it was priced at $40 which is a great price, even for a sword this good. Current price still makes it worth it, for sure. You Get What You Pay For, i always say. With my previous purchases through BudK, sometimes you get more than what you pay for.
This is a good sword,It's balenced well and feels good in your hand. Normally I wouldn't consider a stainless steel blade on a sword to be battle ready especially 420,but in this case the broad blade gives the blade greater strength.420 is a soft steel but is easy to sharpen,and doesn't take much to put a razors edge on the blade. This sword can be used in cutting practice but only on soft objects like melons or pumpkins,I would not try anything harder. Please be careful when useing your sword it's a good idea to wear safety glasses when cutting anything.thank you Daniel Voges.
This sword is an amazing sword the hand is great doesn't not come loose easily has a nice feel to it swings well and the scabbard is very nice and very sturdy and durable this sword didn't come very sharp though so i suggest u get s sharpener also with this sword if u plan on getting it the scabbard has nice leather on it and the pummels are perfect and don't come loose and the blade is durable don't matter if its 420 stainless steel or not get this blade its worth the 40 dollars.
This sword is great! The edges were sharp which is good and the handle was nicely wrapped and has a good no slip grip. The only thing I noticed wrong with it was it was a little oddly balanced not at the tang but at the top 2 Chinese markings. Other then that it is WORTH the buy.
This is my first sword that I own but I do know enough to know that this sword is good. The only problem so far is the tsuba has come loose partially, but isn't to much of a problem and is fixable. My only reason for giving it 4 stars was the metal as it is 420 stainless, and not so "battle ready" as advertised, It wasn't very sharp.
Any sword made out of stainless steel whether they claim it's tempered or not is a wallhanger, period. Stainless steel is too weak for a serious sword, that's just the laws of chemistry and physics. If you cut anything that's just a bit too hard for the weak bonds between the molecules the sword will shatter, just like on the now infamous YouTube video which shows this guy on the Home Shopping network banging a stainless steel katana on a table to demonstrate how "sturdy" it is? He ends up going to the hospital after the sword shatters and the sharp end of the sword impales him! These stainless steel swords are fine for non-cutting techniques and display, but a sword for cutting needs to be either tempered high carbon steel or Damascus!
So I placed an order for this Friday, too late for the order to process until yesterday....looking forward to it's arrival! Piece looks rather nice, though the 420 stainless construction has me weary, as it is a very low quality stainless alloy....unless they use 420HC. Can't wait to show it off though!
Fastest shipping I have ever seen! As a Martial arts practitioner and teacher, I am very critical of equipment used in our arts. This Katana however is one of the best made I have ever purchased outside of Nippon irregardless of price. Well balanced, correctly sharpened, handle wrapped to fit with "NO-SLIP-GRIP" and a no-mistakes wire wrap foundation on the handle. The blade has the beginnings of a true soul and can be bonded with by the owner. Domo sumimasen to ja mata BudK!
This item is just as advertised. Not a display piece. It's sharp, and ready to go. Very Nice.
I purchased this sword as one of my first two. However I do know a bit about swords. To be honest, without taking it apart, it does NOT feel like full tang, due to a faulty handle design, but it is. The blade came reasonably sharp, but curved at the end to the left. When I sent it back I received another that's curve was not as noticeable, but is still there. Also that handle was secure to the tang. This sword makes a great show peace, sleek, simple and elegant. It also makes a good weapon if need be, but I would not rely on a weapon of this metal for everyday use. Who am I kidding though. We live in America; a gun is far more useful.
I enjoy this sword. I am a bleach freak so i call it my zanpaktou or however you spell it. i haven't chosen its name but anyways the sword is amazing. its beautiful and along with its beauty it is amazingly great feeling and i cut through things pretty easy from the box still needs to be sharpened a little.
this is the best sword i have. its sharp and i cut my hand when i unsheathed it, its also light weight. the sheath got cut open, it was my fault but it was easy to sew back up. so yeah i highly recommend this sword.
This sword is very solid and well put together! Needs some work to put a sharp edge on but worth it. It is heavier than I thought it would be but feels good in your hand. I am glad I made the purchase when I did.
I have bought alot of swords over the years and i can honestly say that this sword is of top quality. The full tang makes a complete difference when being put to use; it sturdy and reliable unlike those pieces of crap with a steel pole connected to a metal plate. If you are looking for a blade that he can put to use this would be the one
Out of all the swords I have bought, This is my favorite. It has heavy but good weight to it. The sheath is real nice, it's wrapped in leather. Like the other reviews noted the wrap on the handle gets a little loose but it isn't falling off, in other words the handle just doesn't look as neat after some sword play. It doesn't matter the sword feels solid and the sheath does too. the one down fall is there is no belt connection on the sheath, but I'm still stoked. Peace A2
A verry nice sword for the money.Its put together rather well and it holds a decent edge.The hilt does losten up a bit with usage but its still not a problem.The leather and wire wrap construction ads to its appeal.
this sword is one of a kind for the price. i use swords in functional sword play instruction. the full tang construction makes it better and the fact that it is tempered, even moreso. the hilt loosens up some from shock absorbtion, yet due to it's construction being so good, it will not be a problem. keep up good work.
