    Na katanu jsem sice čekal 8 měsíců, ale stálo to za to. Za mě nádherná práce vzhledem k ceně. Vše pevné a pěkně se drží. Vzbuzuje respekt u těch, kdo něco takového vidí poprvé na vlastní oči. Rozhodně to není žádná hračka či dekorace, ale pěkně ostrý meč. Pouze pochva po pár vysunutí už meč pevně nedrží.

    Tak jsem se konečně dočkal a po 3 měsících čekání mi přišla katana. Provedení čepele a hamonu v této cenové kategorii je úchvatné i když není až tak výrazný tak je pravý. Tady ale chvála končí. Saša je krásná ale katana v ní ani trochu nedrží, bude potřeba ji upravit. Oplet těžký je celkem pevný ale rejnočí kůže pod ní je v otvorech pro mekugi otřepená a znečištěná od nějakého lepidla. Po vyjmutí mekugi zjistíte že katana nejde rozebrat. Trvalo několik hodin než jsem úpravami docílil že se katana stala rozebíratelnou. Tsuba a seppa nebyli evidentně dělaný pro tuto katanu. Jsou rozklepnute aby na kataně drželi. Oproti habaki které jsem musel opět jako tsuku silou opatrně zklepat abych ji mohl upravit a šla sundat a nandat. Takže shrnutí je že poměr ceny a toho co dostanete je slušný pokud jste zručný a nebojíte se vrhnout do úprav. Jak bude sekat se teprve uvidí ....???
