Full tang, high carbon steel, assemble yourself... Worth the buy?
QUESTION: Full Tang Katana Kit
I know where I can get better quality swords... considering I have been through your site 100s of times. But I was wondering if you think this might be a steal of a buy?ANSWER:
The description is a bit vague on this site, but I have seen these swords before and am not greatly impressed.
They are 'ok' if you are a DIY fixer upper, but they rarely - if ever - assemble correctly out of the box (often the mekugi ana are misaligned, tsuka too tight/too loose, etc). The blades are pretty average quality too - worth the money? Maybe.. A good buy, sorry - but not really - you'd be better of getting a fully assembled Musashi or Masahiro or something.
Hope this helps.
