I don't know if I expected too much this is my first Katana. it is from the cheaper end of the market
but I found that the Saya was a very loose fit for the sword and the fish emblems on the Tsuba had been poorly riveted on and where so loose that they rattle.
disappointed with the quality of the finish, it lets down what otherwise would be a nice katana.
Hi there Derek! Thanks for your feedback. We're glad you like the katana other than those couple of finishing issues -- as we chatted about via email, we have a replacement on its way to you :) Thanks - The BladesPro Team
