Looks awesome. Nice pointy tip, good for poking stuff. Looks great in OR out of scabbard, good for putting on display. All steel, no cheap plastic. Unique
Blade drags against the inside of the scabbard. Not a true Katana at all. Blade isn't very sharp. A touch heavy.
Don't expect to cut anything with this sword, I tried slicing through cloth with it, no luck! This sword's useless for cutting things but PERFECT for acting as a gorgeous display piece. Don't bother sharpening it like I did, a few trips in and out of the aluminium scabbard and any sharp edge gets worn down, the blade drags on the inside of the scabbard as it travels, this causes no damage but it blunts it. The blunt blade is a blessing in disguise as you can play with the sword, swing it around, have fun with it but you won't get cut or seriously damage anything in the process. The tip of the blade is lovely and pointy, great for casual day-to-day poking of inanimate objects. The handles are 100% machined steel and the blade is made of top-quality 420 J2 stainless steel. It seems a little heavy to me but it's my first sword so I can't compare. When swinging it around it can be a bit painful as the machined metal handle has some cruel corners, you may break a few capillaries in your palms. As for the style, it looks great, very futuristic, well made, it has a style of its own that you won't get on any other sword (apart from the Neo Assault Katana which seems to be just a cheap rip-off). If you want a traditional Japanese Katana, DO NOT buy this sword, if you want a good cutting sword, DO NOT buy it... If you want a gorgeous, hot hot hot one-of-a-kind sword to add to your collection: BUY IT
I'm glad I bought mine!!!
