    The Japanese swords of the Emperor Series have proven, since their initial introduction almost five years ago, to be quite popular with many of our customers. Still, we are aware that there are some people who want a battle ready sword but hope to find one at a more affordable price. Our Warrior Series addresses this problem directly. In our efforts to reduce the costliness of the blades, we have omitted the expensive mirror polishing that we used on our Emperor Swords to create a new series of Japanese swords with a more practical finish.

    The Warrior Series swords are very handsome in their own right and share the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their more expensive Emperor counterparts. Like the Emperor swords, they have Samé covered, cord wrapped handles and quality fittings. If you're in the market for a strong, good looking, reasonably priced Japanese sword we know you'll be happy to own one of these. All come complete with a BLACK LACQUERED SCABBARD and a BLUE/VIOLET COVER BAG.

    I just received mine that I ordered online from one of your authorized dealers, and I have to say... I'm very impressed with it. I don't usually go for overly-large swords (like great swords, 2-handers and the like), but when I saw this I just new I had to have it. It's a pretty hefty sword, so I'm not used to holding something like this. The blade is super sharp, and the blade itself looks amazing in the design of it.

    One thing though, is that I looks more like a Nagamaki in terms of design/shape than a Nodachi(also called Odachi), which can be viewed here:

    Nagamaki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Antique_shinto_samurai_nagamaki_1.jpg

    According to Japanese qualifications, it's not long enough to technically be considered a Nodachi/Odachi (blade is 2" too short), but whatever, I don't actually care. I just thought that you may look into that encase the information I received was wrong.

    But all-in-all, it was a great buy. Very nice sword!!
