QUESTION: Have you ever heard anything about masahiro swords and if so would you recommend them?
ANSWER: The QC on Masahiro swords is all over the shop. Some are good deals for the money, others - very poor. As such, it is a bit of a gamble...
I wouldn't recommend them as serious cutters - but as display swords and occasional cutters (after a thorough inspection for structural integrity).
It is my opinion that there are better swords avaialble for the money than Masahiro. Just my $0.02 though..
