The Sakai Katana is the main primary weapon used by Jin Sakai during the Mongol Invasion on the Island of Tsushima. It is used alongside with the Sakai Tanto and makes up the "Sakai Steel".
I originally bought this sword solely for the saya and planned on selling the sword. However, I ended up liking this sword way more than I expected so I decided to keep it. Shipping only took about a week so that was great. The sword I received was exactly as pictured. From what I can tell, the sword/saya is of great quality for the price and is well assembled. Super shard blade, excellent grip on the handle and nothing feels loose like it's about to fall apart. The grip on the handle is the main reason I kept the sword as it feels so comfortable in the hands and gives you a really firm, secure grip. My only complaint, as others have previously mentioned, is that the handle is slightly offset from the blade. Not a huge deal for me but definitely worth mentioning. The saya is excellent as well. I was looking for a saya with a matte black finish and this one definitely checked the box. I really wish some of these companies would stop advertising these swords as battle ready when they obviously aren't. There was a little paper booklet that came with the sword informing you of all the things you shouldn't do with the sword. I had a laugh at some of them such as "Don't lick the sword" or "Don't put the sword in your mouth". They obviously have to include this for legal reasons but most of it is just common sense lol. The only thing it said you should use the sword for is pretty much display, which contradicts what is stated in the description on the website. I bought this fully aware that this isn't a battle ready sword knowing I would only ever use it for display. If you wanted a battle ready sword, you would be paying $500 minimum likely much more than that. Could you use this sword to defend yourself if it came down it? Absolutely. It could definitely save your life. But I would never trust this sword with my life out on the battlefield knowing full well that it will most likely fail and break. I just wanted to bring this to light so any first time sword buyers know exactly what they are paying for and that swords in this price range are not battle ready. I just wish some of these companies could be more honest and upfront about what their swords can and cannot do. With all that being said, I still do like this sword very much and I can definitely recommend it to anyone who's interested. Just be aware of the limitations of swords in this price range.

Thank you. I’ve wanted one for 10 years. Affordable, fine craftsmanship, and genuinely makes me feel safer. Worth the purchase.

Have not tested it out, but out of the box it looks great, just like the pictures. Feels like excellent craftsmanship, the only reason why I gave 4 stars and not 5 is because there's about a 3 inch section of the blade that is not sharpened properly. Cuts paper decently well but when it hits the dull section it tears. Will have to touch it up on the wet stone. For the price it's a great katana especially if it's true t10 steel that's properly forged/hardened.

Great sword for any anime lover. It's not too sharp so you won't hurt yourself but also sturdy and strong.

I purchased the Handmade Japanese Katana Sword 1060 Carbon Steel With Blue Blade And Scabbard and the Handmade Japanese Katana Sword T10 Carbon Steel Real Hamon. Both swords look some what cheaper in person than the sales picture. The hilt seems to be a colored plastic with cord wrap not wood. Having said that the swords feel solid and all the fittings are tight. I have not and won’t be doing any destruction tests of these blades so I can’t say how durable they truly are but I would not trust my life on these swords in a fight unless I had no other choice
Overall: collectible pieces but questionable strength and durability
