great real blade
That last review by Alex someone is B.S. this sword is meant for action.tatami mats w bamboo core are as hard as human arm, Swords are not meant to cut things like trees.flesh and bone , the bamboo replicates it..this sword will cut someone to pieces. Also thin blade?? I have ww2 handmade japanese gunto, its the same thickness as my hanwei ninja to. So im really concerned about alexs definition of a true sword. If you want to cut " hard things" like trees and concrete, get a axe and a concrete saw...fyi .

This line or product of Ninja-To is a good representation of the original. Thanks to Paul Chen it was very if not near to impossible to get a Ninja-To. To get one made for an individual isn't very easy to do. So to make it short this is the best version to use. Plus actual swords are not meant for fancy movie style sword play just FYI you Block Move and Finish you opponent quickly and effectively.

For Cutting Soft Targets ONLY
First let's get this straight: Paul Chen Japanese Style swords are "practice" swords, NOT weapons. If you want a good edged weapon get a Ka Bar, or a Cold Steel Tanto, or even a Spyderco. This sword is very pretty, and it's even razor sharp. However, it is not going to be of much use to you in a sword fight. A five dollar machete would snap this thin sword in two, or at least take a huge piece out of the edge. The reason that these swords are sharpened is for one purpose: cutting rolled up tatami mats. If I had heeded these words my PC might still be in one piece. The way in which this sword does qualify as authentic, is that it's lightweight enough to be drawn and wielded in the traditional way. A Cold Steel Katana for instance, while a real weapon, is slightly too heavy for proper Iaido or Kendo. Also, for its intended cutting purpose (tamishigiri) its actually quite good. So overall I think it qualifies as a good product. But if you want something inexpensive that allows you to employ your Kendo skills for home or personal defense, Get a good hardwood Bokken. Seriously.
