I am glad that I purchased this sword. As soon as I got it, I immediately took it out and began inspect the blade. It is very sharp as advertised. I am very happy with my purchase and will be buying more in the near future.
Just what I asked for and more

I researched a great deal before buying this sword. I was cautious because of the low price but I saw so many good reviews and now I see why! I ordered the sword on July 28 and it came in on August 1st. I received extremely speedy shipping and a great sword. The sword is a gift for my boyfriend who is really into weapons. He loves katanas and the longer the blade the better. I found that this sword was perfect for him. It looks almost exactly like the picture, it's pretty long, and I didn't expect how sharp it was for a 60$ katana. I had to be really careful with it. All in all I'm really happy with my first purchase from the site and I encourage others to buy this sword. It's a genuine katana.
Great sword for price

I got this sword and as soon as it came out of the box it was well made. Everything was perfect, there were no issues at all.
As i began using it, namely on some small ceder trees, it cut very easily through. Now, of course, when using it on trees, the tsuba came a little loose, but it's not a problem. It's full tang, so looseness of the tsuba is not a big deal. It became dull soon, so i decided to sharpen it. After a rough 30-40 strokes of both sides with a whetstone, it became just as sharp as it was. Absolutely perfect sword for the price.

I just received this sword today and I am very impressed with the quality and functionality. I did some light cutting using cardboard moving boxes, a 2 liter bottle filled with water, and a gallon milk jug filled with water. I couldn't believe how effortlessly I cut through all these targets, particularly the moving boxes due to their thickness. The blade came EXTREMELY sharp and I found no discernible flaws. For $60 it's a tremendous value!
