Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, None
Cons: Usable, Blade Material
Dull As a Butterknife
Overall this is a very beautiful piece. Unfortunately, the sword blade is not sharp. In fact, other than the last few inches, it has a square edge. I can run it with pressure across a piece of wood and it will not cut at all. I purchased this rather expensive "high carbon Damascus steel" sword expecting a quality razor sharp blade. I received an ornamental sword that won't cut paper. First serious disappointment from Knifecenter.
