This is the newest innovation from the Musashi brand, two swords sheathed in one saya. The saya splits down the middle to reveal a wakizashi with the sageo as the handle. When the sword is sheathed it is as solid as any katana.

I originally bought this sword as a novelty simply because of the way they combined two swords into one but I believe this sword might be usable once it is checked out by an expert. I'm sure the balance is a little off due to the way the blades are offset so that both swords fit in one sheath but it felt good in my inexperienced hands. I also like the fact that the handle for the short sword is fatter and longer than a normal Wakizashi handle due to being part of the sheath.
Overall an excellent value for the money I paid.
By "low quality" I mean the materials used, not that it's not well-put together. On the contrary, it's been done rather neatly despite being low-cost. The blades are stainless steel with a fake (wire-brushed on) hamon. The handles & scabbard are real hardwood, shiny black, with synthetic sageo (wrap), and all the metal aside from the blades are silver-plated cast zinc. Someone in another review mentioned that their katana didn't lock into the sheath, and was loose & rattled around, and slid right out. With mine, however, both blades slide tightly into the scabbard and actually make a secure "click." The sword is rock-solid when all together, it doesn't rattle & the blade wouldn't fall out if you held it upside down & shook it. I guess there will be discrepancies in workmanship with a cheap sword...hope you get one as nice as mine.
There are no pegs on the handles so I am not sure how far the blade tang goes down or how the blades are even secured, therefore I would not go crazy with actual use. When I put my swords to "actual use" I don't mean clashing blade-to-blade with an opponent...I usually just go outside & chop some branches, and then test the sword out on some rolled tatami mats, bamboo, or 5-gallon buckets of water. I don't even bother with stainless steel blades anymore - they usually bend easily and can even dangerously break or fly out of the handle, so there's just no point in ruining a decorative sword by putting it through trials when stainless steel is never going to perform like carbon steel, no matter how nice it looks. Besides, zinc is not very trustworthy either & will snap or shatter under stress (the tsuba on better swords is usually brass or iron). At any rate, the blades on both the katana & wakizashi were both very dull, in fact I would call it a false edge except for the fact that the last 6 or 8 inches of the blades near the tip are mysteriously slightly sharpened.
I guess that sounds like a lot of negative stuff, but I'm not unhappy with it. It was only $39 and I've never seen another sword like it. For a cool display piece & something to show friends, it's very interesting. You can remove just the katana or the katana & wakizashi (although you can't just remove the wakizashi by itself). The blades have to be slightly off center to accomodate one another in the sheath, which I hardly notice. What was a little more annoying was how fat the handle has to be for the wakizashi. But being an unusual "2-in-1" katana, there are going to be design flaws. In the end, it serves its purpose very well ~ it sits on top of the TV in the game room looking cool, to give my friends something to handle instead of my GOOD katanas they're always getting fingerprints all over. And I don't cringe every time someone reaches for it :) If the price is right for you & all you want is a sword for looks, not performance, go for it.
