  1. Mi conclusión… ninguna de esas espadas es una katana…. Cualquiera puede moldear acero y darle la forma, filo y mango de una katana, eso no la convierte en una.

  2. I'm sorry to say this but there's so many mistake
    – The way you swing the katana is wrong
    – The way you hold katana is wrong too
    – The handle part is a mistake ( start from ferrule to pommel)
    – Material used for forging katana must be tamahagane steel
    – The blade is to thin
    – I can tell the way they're forging are wrong too

    Why people saying that katana is so sharp that can cut trough steel is because not only the material of katana and the sharpness but the technique to drawn and swing katana is the reason.

    FYI katana can't cut through steel/armor, it's not good enough for blocking or parrying, katana is designed to kill people as soon as it is drawn, katana is not main weapon that samurai use, the durability of the katana isn't great.

    Why can i tell is because i learn it from the master it self.

    And whoever saying katana is better than any swords, katana is perfect, katana is blablabla. Stop it you are watching to much anime. IT WILL KEEL

  3. These are cool blades an all but they both look like a mix of the "Hollywood katana" and a poorly done mass produced Taiwanese katana. Given more time I think they'd make a good looking katana though.
