The shell of this amazing looking sword is made to look like an authentic bamboo stalk. Very heavy wooden construction hides a 27 inch 440 stainless steel sharpened blade. A very nice piece at an incredible price. 41 inches overall.

Fun project Sword

Sword seems to be full tang and decently built for its price.The habaki (blade collar) was loose and needed to be adjusted. The paintjob on the wood of the "bamboo" was poorly done but sanded off with ease. Repainted it burgundy and glossed it and it looked fantastic. The blade rattled in the sheath but some spray in foam insulation and letting the blade rest in the scabbard fixed that. It sharpened up nicely and once the ground touching end of the "walking stick" was coated in PlastiDip it was quite serviceable in that roll. I additionally added black leather wrappings between the joints of the bamboo with silver screw trim. I truly had great fun using this product as the base for my Walking Stick.

I just received my walking stick sword. I must say lm quite impressed. It has not yet been tested on my 4 miles a day. But just receiving it im amazed that it only cost 34.00 dollars.
Not good but not expensive either

Yes this sword is 3 stars at best as a sword but at this price you shouldn't be expecting a Paul Chen Hanwei blade.
So that you know what you are getting: It looks nothing like bamboo and has a very interesting green tinge to it. The blade does not have any edge and the hamon looks fake and terrible. The handle is so light that there is at best a rat tail tang in there (That is probably why it snapped sparring for some reviewers. Its not a "real" sword so don't hit anything with it!)
The blade does not fit tight in the saya and the saya came split as described by others. It actually looks like it split at the factory and they tried to glue it there... poorly.
Do not take this review as a "Do not buy this sword" warning. Dude... its like 20 bucks. Just know what to expect.
Passable as a walking stick, not as a weapon

I believe the description says the blade is sharp. It's not. The wood is not bamboo, just turned wood shaped and painted to look like bamboo. The handle is so large that it's totally useless for those with average to small hands. Being that the handle is round and not oval, it's almost impossible to know the alignment of the blade when in the scabbard. The handle is very light, making the sword tip heavy.

Just bought this sword the comment above me is somewhat misleading. Yes, it snapped when you were sparring, but the notes don't say that this sword is fully functional. Perhaps you should pay more attention for future purchases. On a personal note this sword is going to look great in my room on a stand because I have green walls and wood flooring. (great colour scheme)
