    This sword is a large katana but very well balanced razor sharp and beautiful. High quality like all paul chen swords. I’ve owned a cheness 9260 spring alloy,a dynasty forge damascus steel katana,a furubushidoo katana,and a paul chen practical katana and this bad boy blows them out of the water. The shipping was slow a about 3 weeks but the sword was not in stock and worth the wait. Great price great service and thanx I will do more business

    This sword cuts effortlessly. The long tsuka makes cutting one-handed very easy. I have had this sword for about a month now, and have cut foam noodles, bottles, milk jugs, and multi-rolled beach mats. It remains as sharp now as when I took it out of the box. The tsuka wrap is tight, the saya required a small shim for the fit I like. This is a superb sword for the money, but be warned it is laser beam sharp.
