Absolutely in love with my first sword being the Brides Sword, Bladespro kept me updated every step along the way. No doubts with the process, their customer service is always on point and are quick to reply, and I mean the next day sort of thing.
The Sword itself is well made, a bit heavy. Not sure if thats the normal weight of a katana what with it being my first purchase and the fact that I've seen movies and shows that can easily use it with one hand. Definitely require two hands for this and even then its difficult to swing. Perhaps Bladespro can explain this in a reply to this review? Once again the sword is an exact replica and I'm happy that the Kill Bill Hattori Hanzo sword is the first I bought. Was tempted getting another black bladed katana but this one called to me.
One minor issue I had was there was a wooden dowel on the handle which holds together the blade and handle did stand out a bit and wasn't completely flush to the grip. That's just me nitpicking. Secondly, I had issues with the courier where they left it on my doorstep in my flat and didn't require a signature despite being assured by Bladespro they would ask for it and wouldn't be left unattended. I found it waiting at my door after work thankfully before anyone else took it, the online update system still said it was held at the depot for a week and out for delivery for an additional week even though it was left at my door.
Bladespro please change couriers if you can to someone like Hermes, Parcelforce is not great especially for your items. Other than that, I fully recommend Bladespro swords, they are of top quality!
Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it!
Katana swords are heavy, our swords are usually between 1.1 and 1.3 kg, so it does take a bit of strength to maneuver them. We can make lighter swords and we usually do for people who are after a training sword, so they need something that is about 900gr.
Now that we are open again we are UPS as our carrier as Parcel Force was a bit to slow and not the best and a lot of people provided the same feedback, so we hope that with this new partnership, shipping will be much faster and more secure.
We hope you enjoy your sword!

Beautiful piece of craftsmanship . Replica of the katana used by Uma Therman in Kill Bill. Now sits in my cinema room next to my signed photo of Uma Therman holding the katana. Only disappointment was that although I ordered it with a sharp edge, it is not sharp enough to do the famous 'slicing a sheet of paper' test. But as I am not going looking for 'Bill' with avengeance, it doesn't matter. It is purely for display purposes and homage to the skills of the sword makers that I admire s much.
Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback, we really appreciate it! We are very happy to hear that you liked your sword and we will make sure that they are made razor sharp. Enjoy! Thanks - The BladesPro team
I have just received my Katana and it is just beautiful. I'm so happy with it. It took just over a month to arrive but that is only the fault of Border Force who took forever to put a customs charge on it. The sword actually arrived in the country over two weeks ago. BladesPro were incredibly professional and very prompt replying to any emails I had sent. An excellent service from order to delivery.
The Kill bill sword is really beautiful and has just the right amount of detail, we hope you really enjoy it. Thank you for the feedback, it was great working with you! Thanks- The BladesPro Team
