Definitely a case of "You get what you pay for". The pros; 1. Great price. 2. Nice and light, easy to handle. 3. When you do swing them around, the grips stay put. (I have another katana, and a wooden training bokken that the grips slide around on when you use them). 4; They look great displayed on the included stand. The Cons; 1. As soon as I took them out of the box, the end cap on the handle of the wakizashi fell off. I glued it back on. 2. They are very dull.(Which actually might be a good thing since I have them on display, that way nobody gets hurt.) All-in-all, a good buy for the money.
