    Amazing Blade!!! The looks of it is already worth the money. Came very sharp out of the box. Centre of Gravity (CG) is about 2.25″ away from the CG position I would like. Great for chopping!!!

    Updated review:
    Had tried the sword for more abusive tests now. The brittle 7Cr13 SS finally broke at the handle. I studied the broken part. The grain structure of the broken steel actually looks rather okay to me. It has quite fine grain structure, which means that the heat treatment done to steel should be okay. To me the following is what caused the sword to break:
    (1) Blade tang design. I can see that the tang of sword (i.e. broken part) is too narrow compare to the actual width of the sword. Hence, it is not strong enough to withstand the kind of abuse I put it through.
    (2) Steel brittleness. 7Cr13 is a very brittle stainless steel. Not good for sword blade of this size.

    All in all, I still give it a 3-star, mainly because the very nice design and look. Also, my tests are rather abusive and can cause a lot of stress on the swords. Only swords/knives that are made very strong and durable can take such stringent tests without breaking.
