It is not a bad katana for the price. I chopped up a box but noticed a dent in the blade's edge. This was quite distressing and I believe the steel used isn't that good, or the edge wasn't properly hardened. It is made in China so I suspect the cutting edge wasn't heat-treated the way it should have been. It doesn't rattle or shake, the scabbard is well finished and the katana is overall, complete. The design is unlike any real katana though, with a sort of 'tribal tattoo' design.

The only drawback to the sword is it's not very sharp.I did buy a knife sharpener and used it for this blade and when done I wiped the blade down cut through the rag with scary ease.So sharpening the blade is the only thing I recommend.

My first ever Katana. Very nice and well balanced. It has a decent edge and does the paper slicing thing well. Could be sharper but in a self defense situation, it would cut my attacker with ease!
