Excellent Sword, especially at this price!

My need for a katana is not for play. I work in Alaska in an area where firearms are not allowed because of the possibility of damage to pipelines, but there are still bears around, and once in a while one gets stupid. Two months ago I broke my blade practicing and needed a very strong blade as replacement. James recommended this particular model, and I could not be happier. The fittings are tight and well made, and once I finished the sharpening, the blade cut four-inch bamboo without a whimper. I have since purchased a Horse Katana to go with this one, which is exactly the same blade. This should tell you how much I like these swords. Highly recommended for any use, and they will do ANYTHING reasonable that you demand of them. Thanks, James!!!
Great sword

So I noticed there are many ratings but not many reviews on this site. Due to that fact and the fact that this should not go as a rating alone, I decided to do a review. I have no major complaints whatsoever, blade came in sharp, could be sharper, but then it probably wouldn't retain an edge as well, they are sharpened to a certain point for a reason. Also, it still requires caution, it is definitely sharp enough to cause a very serious injury. main thing I liked was the fittings, this is very important to me. the showcase swords always have the blade wobbling in the tsuba, and the tsuka is usually loose. If I seen this on any functional sword I would be very displeased. however, all of the fittings are tight on this piece, the ito is wrapped quite exceptionally, I would go with 4 and a half stars if it would let me because there is always room for improvement, but 5 stars represents my feelings on this blade better than 4. The blade itself is very nice, I would have like to see a better grain pattern, but beauty came in second to functionality in my mind. it has a great feel to it, for the price you are paying this is such an amazing piece. if you want any better you would have to save up a lot of money. however in the $150-250 price range you don't get much better. like I said if you want better save up and save up, maybe even take a trip to japan and see what you can find. but if you want a functional sword now and do not want to cough up $1200 go for this piece.
