Hello, I need some help in my katana i recently purchased. It is the MASAHIRO WHITE SHADOW KATANA. I did some research on it but recently seen some reviews saying it wasn't a battle ready sword. I need help on if its full tang, what carbon steel it is, and basically is it a battle ready sword?. Aswell where it was crafted (e.g China). appreciate all the help thanks.

Some info
by: Paul

Actually, we have a pretty detailed review of this sword on our site here

But to answer your questions directly, it is classified as a very basic entry level battle ready katana - made in China from 1045 carbon steel, full tang and fuctional. Not a heavy duty or serious cutter, but it is classed as a basic "bare bones" sword.

Hope this helps.
