Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality, Usable
Will not fit
I bought this blade to go with the Hanwei Bone Handle Main Gauche (SH 2197). It is listed in company literature as fitting with some "modifications". This is essentially a blade blank. It has been threaded on tang and the tip has been ground down and bent over. It will not fit without EXTENSIVE finishing. Gauche Blade is 11 1/4" long. Practical blade is 14 1/4". Gauche blade is 13/16" wide at hilt. Practical blade is 1 1/8" Obviously it will not fit in the scabbard provided with the gauche. Unless you have a shop with a full complement of metal working tools or become obsessive about filing you will not be able to fit this blade.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Material, Finish
Cons: Handle Material, None
Good
I've been using the blade for WMA, so far it has been great. The heat-treatment is nice (the tip area will bend over 90 degrees and return to true, the forte is still very thick and rigid.). The shoulders are nicely rounded, and the tang is long enough for decent customization. the only con is the fact that the weld between threaded tang and tang does not seem very strong, it bends easily. Many originals have scarf welds with similar strength, so I am not to concerned.
