Neither the description nor any included paperwork describe what kind of carbon steel this is. Absent any such documentation, I am going to assume it is only 1045 carbon steel.My blade came somewhat sharp, but it was neither dull nor remotely razor sharp. As another reviewer noted, there is no hamon, and therefore no differential hardening. This same reviewer got a katana with a blade loose in the tsuka. I too, originally got a loose blade, but I complained, and found out this was not usual. The seller (got mine on Ebay) informed me that the others in stock were not loose, and sent me a replacement. The replacement is not at all loose, and it is double-pegged, although one peg is under the thick, leather ito wrap.

Regarding the ito wrap, it takes some acclimation. It makes the tsuka larger in diameter than usual, and is rougher on your hands when put through the motions. The overall weight is heavier than average. So my final sword is a sturdy sword... for a 1045 knock-off. I would not want to take this thing into battle against anything other than another 1045 carbon steel blade or less, however! That being said, though, it is a gorgeous piece. The bronze anodized coating, the leather ito, and the attractive, if plain, tsuba make this a fine addition to a well-rounded sword collection: definitely among my more attractive pieces.

If you aren't a collector, however, and seek one, battle-ready katana, do not be hypnotized by the beauty of this katana, and look elsewhere. It takes more than "full-tang" to truly be combat sufficient. If you aren't both 1. dealing with at least 1060 carbon steel and 2.

The handle was my favorite part of the sword it feels and looks like true quality. The blade comes greased/oiled , unfortunately it has china anodized on the,blade I do not believe you can scratch it off. This is one of my first swords and I believe it will have the most quality out of all the others I will buy. In conclusion its a steal for the price.

this magnificent blade came on time and when i got home from work today and opened it i found a glorious box and a very beautiful sword. but i will say for the collector of weapons that you can use i would not buy this with hopes as a combat weapon. i noticed that the blade wobbled when i would trust it forward and backward. also that there is no hamon (temper line) on the blade so cutting is out of the question, plus the yakiba ( blade edge of course isn't razor sharp although they didn't say that it would be. so its really a show piece. but all in all this blade is very impressive and i would definitely recommend adding this blade to your collection. its is truly one of a kind.
