QUESTION: Have you ever heard anything about masahiro swords and if so would you recommend them?
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..
