    such a faithful reproduction of the movie version…
    I’m no expert, but my Sakabatou feels good on my hand, and for me that is what matters.
    as far as sharpness goes, it is sharp, fit and finish are as I have come to expect from Geisha’s Blade, the quality and longevity of the product is apparent.

    if you are a fan of Samurai X, or Rurouni Kenshin aka Himura Kenshin, this is a great piece to add to your collection.
