Hi Paul.

Question, I'm sure you have heard of Wicked Swords. Liking the looks of the red katana. Though seen a few reviews but still cautious. What do you know and are they worthy?

A newcomer, but same old same old..

Actually, I have not heard of this company - but they look like another seller jumping on the 'direct from China' bandwagon..

Even though the address is in the USA, the swords are sent by EMS - which is what China uses to ship their swords. So they are basically a reseller of either Handmadeswords.com or Ryanswords.com - neither of which have a very good reputation.. :-(

Pricing is VERY high comparatively, yet the fittings are zinc alloy, which is unsuitable for a cutting sword but fine for a wall hanger. Other issues that jump out to be is non-alternating ito on the handles (so they may well unravel quickly)

Then there is some mistruths, such as statements like "The blade is made of High Carbon Steel which has been folded 13 times to create 8192 layers for superior strength and flexibility" which is utter balderdash..

And the fact that they are not upfront about where the swords are shipped from rings some alarm bells.

There are much better and more honest options out there, personally I would avoid.
