I've been considering getting a new one but thought the recent quality issues with the company might make it a bad idea. I really liked the one I had for the wide blade. So my question is: is there any other company that makes one with a wide blade like that? If not, I suppose I might take my chances.
I just bought a Cheness Tenchi Ko Katana from the SBG Store
this past January & had no issues with the quality of the sword. It was exactly as I expected. The blade was nice & sturdy, no scratches or dings & pretty sharp. Not razor sharp but sharp enough to cut most anything. Tsuba & Tsuka were basic & plain but the parts fit tightly. Basically was as the Cheness site described the sword. I wanted to support the SBG Store
so I bought it from here & I think it was inspected for quality control before it shipped. I don't think you would have any issue if you bought a Cheness or any other sword from the SBG Store
