The Katana is Absolutely Beautiful. Masterfully made. The Blade is Razor Sharp and the design from the folding and clay is Magnificent. This is Exactly what I've been wanting. I was hoping the Sword Master who built this for me would have engraved his name like I requested. Thank you for forgeing such a Beautiful Katana for me

I admittedly bought this sword and its shorter companion with the intention of cannibalizing their koshirae to be put on another blade, so I wasn't particularly concerned with the utility of the sword. However, I'll admit that when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised by it. The construction seems pretty tight, the blade while flat ground and through tempered has a pretty good geometry and feels solid. For the money I gotta say this is a really good buy.

This is my 4th sword from TK. Once again, nothing beats these. Came razor sharp, fresh coat of oil, and it doesn’t rattle either. Love this golden look as well.

The sword is really nice. No complaints about the sword itself. But, during shipping, something happened that caused the guard to punch through the shipping material and get damaged.

Nothing else was damaged on the sword. It’s unfortunate that it happened because everything else looks great and it arrived quickly.

5/5 for the sword
3/5 shipping
