I had high hopes from the reviews but this sword outdid all my expectations. The customer service is also fantastic. They are prompt to reply and passionately care about the quality of their work. It shows from their knowledge of the swords to the care they take while shipping and following up on their shipments. I am very happy with the work of this sword and will buy again in the near future.
This katana is very impressive. It is a fantastic sword all around from the handle to quality of steel. I expected far less for the low price.
My fourth Katana from Battling Blades and this is my second favorite after the patterned damascus. Of course this one is less than half the price. Battling Blades just simply has the best steel. I am impressed as always.
I got pretty motivated to buy a katana after watch Ninja Assassin and I am super impressed! I did a ton of research and this sword is highly authentic and beautiful.
