I have been practicing sword for over 15 years. As a Japanese-American, I finally got to purchase my first Japanese katana, instead of the Chinese made versions. The quality of the sword and materials used were very refined. Most of the wrapping on my other swords come off in about 6 months to a year, due to the speed of my movements. Though, this might be the first one to make it past a year of practice. I learned about this company because of the YouTuber, Let’s Ask Sogo. I will definitely recommend this company to others in the future.
