Quality of Shinwa swords?
by Scott Zimmerman
QUESTION: I have seen Shinwa katanas on several online stores. They sell for $159.00 to $279.00. They claim to be fully functional (high carbon steel, tempered, etc.). I have seen them in enough places that I am surprised that I can't find any mention of them, good or bad, on this site. Have they been overlooked, or are they just not worth mentioning?
ANSWER: The 'Bud-K' swords... ;-)
You pretty much hit the nail on the head there. Compared to what else is available on the market in this price range, they really aren't worth a second look...
