No Fullers along blade or tapering on blade.

Because of the length, there is some flex in this blade. Based on customer testing, that is historic as real steel ones had the exact issues. Its a real long blade. Do not expect this to be perfectly stiff, you must work your training around this. I've talked to many customer.
HEMA guys, I know this is odd, but its how physics work. Folks with an Asian Martial Arts background understand this and adapt to it.

Very Strong for intense training.

No saya at this time. We are considering it based on sales.

4 of 5 Decent Sparring Nodachi June 8, 2021
Reviewer: Cody Watkins from ,  
The balance is a bit off, and strong or fast swings cause the sword to handle awkwardly. Overall it is a good trainer and decent for sparring, but it requires some disposition to properly wield.

5 of 5 Cool Sword June 7, 2021
Reviewer: Erik  
I don’t practice Japanese weapon arts, but I wanted to try training with this weapon. It’s awesome. It changes the dynamic of training to have a sword this long. It’s really fun to train with and is quite sturdy for a training sword of its length. It doesn’t have a flop or whip-like motion the way a Jian does. It also looks great standing it up in the room with other weapons.

5 of 5 beautiful quality April 20, 2021
Reviewer: Jerry from Maple Valley, WA  
Of the small collection of practice swords that I'm collecting this one has to be of the highest quality. The blade itself is sturdy with minimal flex for the length. The nylon wrapped handle compares to that of a professionally crafted sword. And the cross cards construction to keep it in place is one I have to give high marks in creativity.
