Build quality is superb. Everything is tight. I am yet to pull it all apart though.
It looks just like the pictures.
The blade is quite sturdy. Thicker than the traditional katana, but perfect for my needs.
Cuts through branches with ease. I think it will handle bamboo wrapped in tatami too.
All in all, a phenomenal sword.
Fantastic quality, 2nd time ordering and very happy, thank you.
