Musashi Zatoichi Sword January 3, 2014
Reviewer: David  
When I got the sword, it had some dried grease on the blade and scratches on the brass fitting on the blade/handle.  After I cleaned the blade and the brass fitting, I tested it.  The blade was heavy and the peg looks like it was out of cork wood.  I would have preferred a brass peg or stainless steel peg and a double peg system.  Over all for the price, it should be a decent light cutter.  I would not suggest it for more then that.  It should be good for practicing martial arts.

Wow! May 1, 2013
Reviewer: D  
Best sword for the money on the internet bar none! Unbelievable value! Minor cosmetic flaws but for a blade of this quality I would pay the same price for just the steel.

Reviewer: Jamie LeBlanc from Milton, VT United States  
This is the best sword for the money I have purchased so far and I have several. I can't believe the price for what you get. I planning on buying the next several swords from swordnarmory!

OUTSTANDING June 13, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Milford, CT United States  
Most impressed, stunning --- you would be hard pressed to find something this nice for the money elsewhere. You will be mad at yourself once it arrives that you didn't order it sooner.
Impressively sharp. Lacquer handle & sheath still look wet, very shiny.Snug fit.

Great Buy! August 6, 2011
Reviewer: James from MIAMI, FL United States  
I was skeptical of a 50 dollar samurai sword.I was pleasantly surprised upon inspection.First the blade comes out of the handle by removing the bamboo peg.The blade is a Full Tang.It extends through the handle and is very snug.Hanweii has a similar Zatoichi sword but the blade onle enters the handle a couple inches beyond the peg & is epoxied in to prevent removal.The blade comes with a decent edge,did now require much time at all to sharpen to a full razor.I flexed the blade a number of times & it seems to be made of very good spring steel,never lost its shape.If you look down the blade you can see the waves of a Hammered out sword.Looks loke it may have actuelly been forged.The Hamon is etched on & looks very nice.I put the sword to a punishing 2x4 test.Instead of plastic bottles and mats I chopped away at a pine 2x4.The blade did not snap,or loose shape.It even maintained a decent edge.The blade is an excellent peice of steel & this sword can be considered a Functional sword.
