Some of the most common weapons used in martial arts are from Japan. There are many reasons for this, not the least of which is that they are very popular because they’re just plain cool! I’ve found Amazon to be a great place to get quality weapons at a great value, so I do most of my shopping for them there. Here are some of my favorites that I’ve found…
Wow, this thing is so cool. The grip is slim and sleek and fits perfectly in the palm of my hand. You can definitely tell this thing was made with care; the blade is sharp but somehow thin and extremely resilient. The truth is, you would be hard pressed to find a higher quality product for the price.
When I first received the order, I immediately ran into my man cave and began to examine what I had ordered. Both my son and wife roamed into the room and were ecstatic to see the new sword. I pulled the blade out of the sheath and it caught a glare from the light above and nearly blinded me—that’s how shiny it is!
I have bought a dozen different off-brand swords from Amazon; none of them compare to the artistry of this sword. I look forward to enjoying this swords design, craftsmanship and overall quality for a long time. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is considering purchasing it. Two thumbs up!
I recently began taking Ninjutsu lessons. This is my first ever pair of nunchaku. I needed a pair for class, so I did a TON of research before this purchase and I do not regret it whatsoever. These things are the real deal! The fantastic thing about these nunchaku are that they are rubber, so I had little fear practicing my martial arts in the garage by myself. Because of the material, the resilience and quality are fantastic. I look forward to getting some practice time in on the weekends. Hopefully, after a few weeks, I can surprise my martial arts teacher with some cool moves I picked up!
The chain is great quality, although I know that some people prefer a cord over a chain – for wooden ones, I agree, but for these, a chain is better in my opinion. Because the nunchaku are padded foam, I am going to get my son a pair so we can play in the garage together! You could go somewhere else and find a pair half as good for twice the price. I most certainly will recommend these to anyone here and at my martial arts class.
Wow! These are perfect. The tips are sharp and the overall quality and design are extraordinary. This is the first set of throwing knives I have ever purchased, and thanks to the Black Widow Spider, this won’t be my last!
The compact design allows the throwing knives to fit nicely into your hand, maybe a little on the smaller size than I expected. These things are fun to throw at targets or just into trees in the woods. The pouch is made of high-quality cloth that you can strap right onto your belt. It’s fun to practice whipping the throwing knives out quickly and seeing how fast you can throw them at your target with precision. The weight and control seems just right; but like I said, this is my first true set so I do not have a fair comparison.
For the price and quantity, it is unlikely you will find a better deal out there. These aren’t items you will be purchasing for a collector, but they are perfect for anyone just looking to use them recreationally in the backyard. I recommend this product!
If you are any type of fan of martial arts, you’re going to love this sword. The detail is flawless; the blade is sharp; the design is unique and captures the Japanese culture. When I opened the package, and unveiled this piece of art, I was ecstatic. Don’t be fooled by the relatively cheap price. Sure, the quality is not superior, but it most certainly is not inferior. This is my third katana and if anything ever happens to this one, I wouldn’t hesitate to get a new one.
It took me a couple of weeks to pull the trigger and purchase this one. I got caught up in doing too much research and was in information overload. I didn’t have a lot of money to spend so trying to find that perfect balance of budget and quality made my head spin. However, I know I settled on the right piece for my collection. Don’t waste a bunch of time like I did; I did all of the work for you. The price is fair, the design is unique and it fits perfectly in my hand. Besides all of that, it’s absolutely beautiful. If you use it for nothing else but a show-piece, you’ll be 100 percent satisfied.
Many times, I find myself wondering why I don’t pull the trigger sooner on purchasing things like this. It took me two weeks to finally say “yes, I will buy this.” I have zero regrets! My passion for martial arts is historic, in my blood even. I have approximately 10-15 katanas, most of which have been very expensive. The price is outstanding on this one; I have yet to find a better buy for the value. It’s easy to be skeptical about purchasing items like this on Amazon, but this sword is amazing!
The packaging is not unique but it does protect the integrity of the blade. Opening the box is always a fantastic experience; it always makes me feel like a kid again. The gold detail used throughout the blade’s design is particularly unique. It has a very Japanese feel.
The steel blade shimmers up against the light but it does have a few imperfections. The grip is a bit unsatisfying but it’s one of those things where the hand quickly adapts to the different texture. A few of my friends also collect these swords and I have recommended this katana to all of them. I most certainly recommend this product—give it a chance!
My expectations were low but the reality was different because it’s hard to have much confidence in a naginata at this price point. I initially was going to go in a different direction but I gave in and finally decided to buy this big guy. The specifications are almost exactly as they are laid out online. Another plus is I received my order a day earlier than expected. That is always awesome news! Be sure to examine the packaging for any flaws. My box was slightly damaged which caused a little concern, but everything turned out to be fine.
I know some of the reviews are poor, so I want to be clear on my own personal experience. I have nothing but positive things to say about the sword. In reality, it is not a sword that you should be trying to hack a tree down with. The quality is there, but there is slight room for improvement at the price. If you think you can find a similar product for less money and better quality, good luck; it’s not going to happen. The design is immaculate and the blade is very sharp. I highly recommend this product to each and all of you considering purchasing it.
Holy moly! It’s hard to imagine something exceeding your expectations quite like this did. I am so very thankful I made the decision to purchase it! This sai is perfect for training. The blade is not actually a blade but resembles one. They are a bit long and heavy, but I take the weight as a sign of quality. I recently began taking lessons in martial arts and my teacher recommended this product to me. It was an unusual purchase for me, but, I said “why not?” The sai is mainly a defense weapon, however, if correctly mastered it can be an excellent offensive weapon.
The durability is there, in my mind, because of the weight. Most products like this are light and you can tell they weren’t made with quality in mind. Not this sai. It’s perfect. From the packaging to the end-product, the whole experience has been fantastic. The handle has a feel of craftsmanship. A well-designed product that has not disappointed! If you are up in the air about whether or not you should purchase this product, take my recommendation: Stop looking elsewhere. The price point is perfect for a beginner or if you are just wishing to do some solo training in the garage.
If you’ve ever held a small axe like this in your hand before, then you know how important weight and balance are for it to feel right. This little guy is just perfect, from the matte-black finish to the signature sharpness that curbs the blade.
I set up a few targets in the backyard—just a haystack with some paper on it, nothing fancy. I got about 15′ to 20′ away and just gave it a good throwing. Bam! Right in the heart of my target. I heard my son yelling with glee in the background. What a cool feeling!
My overall feeling on the longevity of the product is that I believe I can make these last for a while. As long as they are cared for and no one attempts to throw them into some sort of hard steel, they should survive for a while. They will need to be sharpened occasionally, just like any knife or bladed product. If you’re considering whether or not you should purchase this product please take my recommendation to heart—you absolutely should. There isn’t a better product out there for the price.
