This nodachi feels great to handle, not as heavy in the hand as some might think. All fittings are tight, very nice forged blade. Its a beautiful sword, i recommend this sword highly.
This is an update to a review I posted earlier. My odachi functions beautifully. I have made several more test cuts with it, and she is still holding an edge. The odachi is a large sword, but it has a Nice balance, and it is very easy to control. I am extremely happy with my purchase, and I plan on getting another sword from northshire soon.
