REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS

Now just touching on Hanwei quality again. The fit in the Habaki, on all Hanwei swords has been second to none. I really respect this, as a lot of manufacturers skimp on this and it really makes the value of the blade, to me, plummet. Nice and straight, no gaps and no rattle or movement. -- Average_joe101
