I got the katanas,one was a cheap red one and the other white one was much better.I took the cheaper red one and tried to cut a water filled pop bottle and it bent the sword,but the white katana went right through it like it wasn't even there.The white sword is about twice as heavy as the other one and really sharp,it's like one is a real sword and one is fake.

Do you have a manufacturer on the white one?

Due to the huge amount of crappy wall-hanger makers of Katanas, I don't even look twice at them anymore. I do have a set of snakeskin-covered samurai wall-hangers, but I know better than to try to use them. All mine do is gather dust.

A Korean Hankook may be a better option...not many wallhangers with those.

Far better to get Chinese Jian or Dao swords...at least you know what you are dealing with

Honestly, the exotic weapons are WAY more fun...the Twin hooks, 9-section chain, 3-section staff are really too much fun

And as was seen on "The Deadliest Warrior" those Twin Tigerhead Hooks are DEVASTATING
Not to mention perfect for zombie dismemberment...

The red one I got is definitly a wall hanger,but the white one has some seriously thick sharp steel for it's price,and it would be a good wall hanger too.It wizzed right through some branches I cut as good or better than my machete,so it is functional.
