I actually bought this for a friend outside the USA. Traveling there today. He needs a shinken, but doesn't have loads of money. So, I'm bringing him a gift.
I've used the Practical Katana before. The Practical Katana is a good, no frills answer to finding a solid, reliable cutting sword without having to sell the farm. The koshirae is basic, but the blade cuts just fine.
