is the shinwa brand a trusted sword brand
(pasadena tx )
QUESTION: I saw a katana on a web site that is $289 that is made by the shinwa name and the sword supposedly is made of damascus steel and I wanted to ask if that type of steel is powerful, durable, and trustworthy of not breaking.
I get asked about these swords a fair bit. But to be honest, I am not impressed. There are much better choices for the same amount of money. They aren't last on my list, but they aren't far from the bottom...
My $0.02 - by something else.
Hope this helps.
