Really unhappy with this item. The engraving on the head isn't consistently darkened, with the areas closest to the haft having almost no inking (or whatever they've used to color it in). Also, there's a defect in the head on mine, and it's readily apparent: a chip/crack in the head that's been filled in with the engraving ink and stands out like a sore thumb. On top of those issues, the wood used for the haft is much closer to white than the pleasant red hue in the example photos. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, but for a display piece like this I would hope they match up the images provided as much as possible.
