Not What It's Cracked Up to Be


Skill Level : Advanced

When obtaining a practice sword, it depends on what you want to use it for. The polypropylene katana sold by Century is fine for forms and practicing cuts, blocking motions, etc. I would not use this sword for contact drills or sparring.

The sword is marketed as "durable", matching a real katana in weight, etc.

I find the sword to be very lightweight and it gives me the distinct feeling that it is flimsy and if it got a good blow it would be bent badly. It's also very glossy and pretty to look at, which adds to the impression that this sword is built for show and not contact.

I already have a 41" Cold Steel polypropylene katana. I wanted to work on a double sword form. Since I have a wholesale account with Century, I decided to try the Century brand.

Customer service told me no one has returned the sword.

I would like to return the sword, but I have to pay a substantial shipping charge and a 6% restocking fee. I decided to keep the sword since I won't get much of a refund overall.

The feedback of customer service should be taken with a heaping of salt since its goal is to get customers to buy as many products as possible.

I have ordered another Cold Steel katana for myself. This Century katana is an unwanted addition to my practice weapon armory.
