Great sword.
A great sword that can be used or hung up.

For the price, you can't find a better FULL tang Wakizashi!  Needed a couple of strokes with my sharpening steel when it arrived, but then it took an edge like a razor.  Durable (been hacking everything in sight) and super light, it moves like a lightning bolt in wind!

I have been wanting this piece for a while and I saw it on sale and bought it.  There is some fitment issues with the handle scales at the crossguard but it is just cosmetic.  Still a great deal at full price!  I will give it a better edge for easier cutting.

I read the 1st review and hesitated for a while and then this went on sale for 1/2 price and I ordered 2.  I didn't think the oil stink was bad but I work with chemical solvents and probably can't smell much anymore, but the blade was well protected from rust and all wiped off fairly easy with a Bounty towel.  The sheath was EXCELLANT and the metal ends were oiled and wiped off easily.  At first I didn't really like the squared grip handles and considered rounding them off, but now I do kind of like them.  I consider myself a PRO sharpener and this only came with a poor edge but the steel is good and will take a much better edge than they come with.  At first look, the rubbery handles make this look like a cheap sword with a GREAT sheath and if it came with a much fancier handle it would be worth much more even at full price.  I bought 2 while on sale and then bought 5 more while still on sale.  I may round off the handle on 1 just to see how it feels.  This is full tang so if you feel like making a fancier handle, you do have metal to work with.  It really is worthy of a much fancier handle.

Not bad for the price, there were some issues with the edge profile, i plan on rounding the grip as a matter of personal preference.

Good value for the price.  I was aware of the shortcomings of the double-bevel edge and the boxy grip. Solidly constructed and well worth the price, especially the sale price.

Great Sword for the price!

The handle is a little more square than the usual handle, also the factory edge is rather dull.  Also the grease it comes coated with is somewhat stinky.

Plus plus plus.  The steel is excellent. The sheath is excellent. The weight is great.  I sharpened it myself and it is my favorite little sword right now.  

It is very prone to tarnish, so dry it right away if you get it wet.  

I think part of the reason I love this sword is because it was so inexpensive I don't feel bad using it all the time and getting little scratches all over it.
