It's well made, easy to handle, and razor sharp. Excellent choice in that price range.

I call it "Stabby"
The adjective that comes to mind for this tactical wakizashi is "sufficient." Sufficient because it is sturdy and full-tanged, reasonably comfortable, and decently sharp. It would do a fine job as a light machete or self-defense weapon, and is short enough to be nimble and easy to wield in confined spaces (e.g. indoors). Those used to the fit and finish of better swords will be fairly disappointed, though, upon careful inspection. The blade is not quite straight, and the grind is not very symmetrical, which means it does not handle or cut with the fluidity of dojo-quality blades. Viewed as a light machete, however, this wakizashi does a pretty nice job making wide, penetrating cuts and thrusts on jungle foliage (bamboo, vines, etc) and grasses. The curve of the blade lends itself well to a variety of cutting tasks, although I would not suggest chopping hard wood with it--the blade is simply not robust enough to take that kind of stress (nor is any Japanese-style sword, for that matter). For what it does, it is neither overpriced nor a bargain. It is more refined than a machete, but definitely not a high-quality sword.
