masamune replica: any good?

QUESTION: Hi, I know replica swords generally aren't made to high quality standards and was wondering if this sword would be the same. Also, if you know any history about this store (globalgear.com)and if this sword is good as it is advertised. Link can be found here:

Thanks!

ANSWER: Hmm, well - I keep hearing conflicting reports on this brand. Some people say they are very good (if bought on ebay for a very good price mind you) and others say, not worth the full retail price...

Personally, it is probably the best replica of that particular blade - but it really should only be considered to be a wall hanger. Too many things can go wrong in a blade of that length... ;-)

Cheers,

- Paul
