    It was perfect, exactly as described!
  • Br****on
    I purchased two swords from them and some are very good! ! I really like this Hyoshinshi hideyo Nyudo Replica, his saya is the best I have seen so far
  • D****d
    Beautiful work of art
  • R****g
    This is my first time purchasing a sword from Shadowdancer, and overall, I am very satisfied. The visibly high-quality polish, the high-quality ito (I customized the tsukamimaki wrapping style), the high-quality samegawa, the lacquer on the saya, and more—I really love this sword.

    It's worth mentioning that their customer service is truly excellent; they respond within 24 hours in most cases. The shopping experience this time was fantastic!
  • Sa****es
    Bought it as a gift for my brother, and he loves it. The details are stunning. I will definitely buy another one. Their shipping speed is very fast, it only took about a week to reach me.
  • Jo****er
    very nice sword
  • D****k
    Well-crafted and looks beautiful. I had previously purchased their 9260, and I really like their habaki.
  • Da****ez
    Shadowdancer provides excellent customization services. I spent 100 USD to add a bohi to this sword, and the quality in all aspects is outstanding. The bohi is also not rippled, as you often find with swords from typical Chinese manufacturers; it is very straight and has a taper towards the tip.
  • Co****ks
    Great place to buy a sword, I got exactly what I ordered and in really good shape.

  • Ma****an
    Great product, my son was stoked! And it got here quicker than local post....🤔
  • Ti****ts
    I purchased a total of 3 swords, all of which are genuine katana. They have a very high-level polish, advanced steel, and incredibly sharp edges.
  • Choji Hamon Sakura Katana
    US$ 580.00
    I ordered gold-plated fittings, a red glossy saya (including the buffalo horn), and after receiving the item, I replaced the sageo with silk sageo purchased from Yahoo Japan. Everything is perfect, and the craftsmanship is beautiful. Thank you!
  • An****ry
    This is truly a beautiful sword, surpassing the one I have from Motohara. I love it!
  • Ry****oy
    I received two swords, one katana and the other a wakizashi. They are extremely sharp, true weapons. My samurai era is about to begin!!
  • 9260 Steel Shobu Zukuri Katana
    US$ 230.00
    This sword is the lightest I have ever used. I customized it with a bohi on the original model, and they charged me an additional $50 for that. I also replaced the ito with their synthetic leather ito and chose to include hishigami. The balance point is approximately 10cm in front of the tsuba. All the fittings are very compact, well-aligned, and the edge sharpness is excellent. I love this sword.
  • T****s
    This is undoubtedly the best-quality sword I have ever seen (under $1000). They crafted a sword that met all my expectations with their exquisite craftsmanship. I chose model 3 with the option that includes hishigami, and the ito is really, really tight.

    Hi all, I just received this same sword from Dragonsword :)

    First impressions are very good.
    I'm based in EU (Croatia), so i needed to pay hefty import tax, VAT and shipping.
    Bought the sword for 118 Eur + 46 Eur Shipping + 60 Eur VAT/import tax = 224 Eur in total.
    Waited around 3 weeks, but i presume Christmas time didn't help.
    Also paid via paypal but not on page directly, seller sent me request to my paypal account.
    Communication with seller was very good and fast.

    Regarding the sword i was pleasantly surprised whit what i got. No rattles of any kind, furniture is tight, blade looks good, decently sharp.
    I went cheap with Ito(no hishigami), it is decent, tight, but moves a bit if i try to move the diamonds with fingers.
    Maybe i needed pick 'with hisigami' option :)
    I received sword bag and to backup mekugi with the sword.

    I don't have much experience with Japanese sword(i own few longswords) so bear that in mind.

    But i think if you are based in EU and you want cheap cutter, that you don't mind to use heavily, this in my opinion is good quality sword for decent amount of money.
    I can update here how it cuts if anyone is interested.
  • Ko****ld
    The quality of this sword is hard to come by in the market let alone THIS level of quality at this price point. Just received my model #3 and it’s flawless. Light but feels tough. Love the care put into a lower price model, gives me faith going forward with more pricy katana.
  • Ja****ts
    My sword arrived the day before Christmas, and I really love it. It's so beautiful. Dragonsword is definitely superior to any other Chinese sword manufacturer.
