    After purchasing this $150+ katana; I am extremely disappointed with Musashi. After waiting two weeks for shipping, my excitement was mounting. When i unboxed this sword i was expecting to receive a functional katana. What i received was a uselessly dull sword. The saya was littered with wood shavings, which also covered the over oiled "blade". This would normally be no problem, but the blade was so dull you would be better off trying to slice with a pice of rebar, and when you are expecting a functional sword of quality, the blade i recieved was completely useless. I had heard so many phenomenal l reviews of your products, so when i received this katana i was disappointed. I will not be buying anymore of your products.

    Lucas: True, the swords Musashi sends out should be sharp out of the box and ready to cut, and if it was truly as dull as you say then that's certainly disappointing, but you should be definitely be equipped to sharpen it first thing, just in case they don't send you a razor, which happens sometimes. That doesn't reflect on the quality of the blade itself even the slightest bit. "Battle ready" or "fully functional" refers to the blades durability to withstand practical use, and I have owned several Musashi swords, some of which came to me without much of a blade, but a few swipes with a whetstone and I was ready to rock and roll.

    What I'm curious about is why the "marbling" or whatever is gold on these pictures - something visceral about rust looking swirls on the blade sets off alarms in my head like "don't buy this, don't buy this...," even tho it looks kinda cool :3 Could someone who bought this sword please comment on this, does your sword look like the one pictured and how does it measure up? Thanks mew! ^_^

    The "marbling" as you call it is called damascus. But this is not a common coloration of damascus which makes this piece unique. I recently purchased this piece and I can say the shade varies. In this one the color is almost a sun burnt orange. However on mine it is a very dark red. This is very nice piece and proud to own it. I havent tested the ha yet on anything but its solid. No looseness in the tsuba and saya was unscratched. Typically yes it came with wood chips and dust on the blade which collected onto it due to its age and the oil treatment done previously to being sold. Its not overly decorated nor comes with any other accesories. But thats the joy of this piece. Its practical. So after inspecting this katana right down to the tang I would say this is awesome and totally worth the money!
