The Shinto katana has a very polished and well-rounded feel to it. The attention to detail is obvious, and it excels in cutting a variety of targets. It is a bit smaller than my other swords, and if you are a larger person you may want a larger sword, but if you are of normal stature this katana will do everything you want it to do. I have had mine for nearly a decade now, and it is still in excellent shape and works as well as it did the day I got it.
