from Seattle, WA United States
Sword arrived in good condition, and very fast delivery. It is a very nice katana. The tsuka is a bit small in diameter, but wrapped excellently. The same is very white, very crisp looking. The blade is also very nice. The choji a little less prominent than I had hoped for. The sageo appears to be the same material as the ito, but the color is very sharp. The saya is very lightweght, thin in width, and feels very high performance and is a good match for the katana. The mouth of the saya is not dished, and I was under the impression that it would be, but maybe I am just mistaken about that. The color of the saya appears to be black, and the flakes to be silver, which is different than the description. However, it is a beautiful saya anyway. The menuki are a nice dragonfly design, very bright, but have an almost plastic feel to them. Not as "fast" as I thought it might be when changing direction. The T-10 is tough as nails.
