In agreement of the other Reviews of this product it is for the most part of extremely high quality. The sword I recived had a brilliant mirror polish, that showed off a beautiful Hamon . 1095 steel is a quality material in this application because of its ability to show a Hamon without the need for chemical enhancement. I have been told that it can be more brittle than lower carbon steels, so is conventionally most suitable for softer targets, but I am not an expert on practical cutting.
so that brings us to the nit picking part of the review, the blade that I recived has a very slight warp, as water quenching tends to do, maybe a 1/8 inch twist along the blade, but the artisan did an exceptional job correcting it in the grind, so the cutting edge is straight. I doubt that this would affect the cut much, and far exceeds my own ability to make a straight cut. beyond that all of the fittings are zinc cast commercially available mass production, as is the saya and brass fittings, but are fit to the blade Incredibly well, I was especially impressed by the fight to the saya, when the blade is fully seated in the saya there is maybe 1/32 of an inch gap between the seppa and the top of the saya, as their should be to accommodate for contraction and expansion due to temperature. The fittings I recived were not quite as nice as the ones in the picture, but I'm not concerned for the price of this piece, and the blade is more than nice enough that if I really wanted I could just replace the fittings.
so in conclusion I highly recommend it I don't think there is any products of appreciably better quality at this price-point. Its a fantastic piece.
This Katana is well balanced and is very high quality. I will purchase my future swords from Ryan because they provide quality craftsmanship, and high quality materials. Thank you.
