    UC has just released 2 new katanas, both of which are supposed to be functional.

    The first thing that jumps out I'm sure is the price, which is really low for a functional katana. However judging by from what I know about wholesale prices & sword quality in general I'd say that these are likely on par with the ~$300 low end functional swords by Paul Chen etc. The reason is simply that UC tends to produce higher quality for less.
