    Well, it depends. If they say it was one of musashi's swords, it's probably a fraud. Mushashi was the worlds greatest swordsman, and a sword of his would be undfer a glass case in a museum.

    Ok i know what you are talking about Mububban. Ther is a sword replica thats supposed to look like musashis katana. This sword is low quality and its wayyyy to expencive for what it is. My friend bought one and cardboard killed it. Here is a site that sells a great series of samurai swords called the emporer collection. I have one and it is extremly sharp and durable. Fully functional i guess and 100 dollars is a great price. www.awma.com

    CB is right.

    An even cheaper option is the Practical Katana by Paul Chen.( CB swords linked to the practical plus.) It has cheaply made fittings, but the blade is high quality.( for the price )

    and once again, these are functional, dangerous swords. Not for fooling around.

    I have the practical plus katana and it is too good for the price. Its made to be used for practice of the arts like chibara. I mentioned awma swords because they are very cheap and i have cut alot of cardboard with an empoer series katana and it glided though the cardboard perfectly.

    even if it is supposed to be a replica of Musashis katana it's a fraud, he used a bokken after his journey acroos Japan.
