    I bought three comparable swords and the Yanagi clearly was the best quality all around, very impressed with the beauty of this sword.VERY SHARP nice hamon also.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    I have practiced tameshigiri with this sword, and it is the only one in my collection that neatly cut through a “buddy bottle” with no effort and a perfect cut. Blade is super sharp and it’s beautiful to look at too. Functional and Classy. Great buy!!!

    Excellent sword for it’s price. My sword also had a slight blemish on the hamon aswell as the person’s below me, but it’s nothing too serious. I highly recommend this sword to anyone thinking about buying it. 4/5

    I bought this sword some time ago now and I am not dissapointed in the least. This is a great buy at it’s price. A functional, forged sword that can also stand alone as a show piece. I was a little iffy at first cause it was my first time puchaseing from SOM, but I am happy to say the customer service and willingness to answer my million questions and the quality of the sword it’s self have made me a loyal customer. This Katana came to me in excelent condition with a light oil on the blade and all parts fit tightly together with out any problems.

    I love the design of the sword, and that’s why I bought the sword, when i got it i did some test’s, 1st i chopped a pumpkin with it, it went clean through, then i did a bottle test,it went clean through 4 bottle’s, after the test’s i saw that the metal piece at the end of the sword slipped, it was an easy fix, 5 of 5! great buy

    Looks-wise, everything is top-notch. Put together well. I will say, and this is subjective, that I didn’t like it as much as my Masahiro Shadow Warrior katana, which just feels more responsive. I would recommend that one over this. This is still nice, though.

    I just received my “Masahiro” Yanagi Katana and I’m pretty happy overall. The weight is great and feels responsives in my hand. It feels solid overall, probably more than you would expect of a 60$ sword. Now i’m far from being an expert, this is my first battle ready sword I buy… I do note that nowhere on the sword its says Masahiro, instead I found a tag for a ten ryu sword. Also the blade is far from being sharp. Will try all these nice test we read about in your review but i’m pretty sure i wont cut much. But its is nice looking!

    I got this sword and am very happy with it, HOWEVER…. when I received it, right of the box it seemed sharp but as far as actual sharpness goes… it needed some serious honing and the pegs were off putting, not nearly as well placed as I thought they’d be, but for a $60-70 it’s a great buy, looks great for a wall hanger but also functions and performs really well. (After honing the edge) no buyers remorse whatsoever.
