How to Use
Materials and Construction
Featured positive reviews:
I purchased this for the beginning of my training in Kaishin-ryu. It has served me well. I am no expert at the appraisal of swords, but the blade has performed admirably. The only small issues are lifted samekawa near the knot of the tsuka ito, the tsuba powder rusts readily despite appearing to be blackened, a temper line near the mune where some clay may have been displaced during heat treat and some poor geometry near the tip of the kissaki.
That said, it is better than many swords at this price-point. I do in spite of blemishes recommend it, even in a heavy use environment. I have never had any fear of poor construction harming me or any of my colleagues. I also recommend it on the basis that SBG has good customer service and their backing of their products is impressive. I wouldn't feel uncomfortable buying another, though I will probably explore other swords for experience sake in the far future into my training.
