A good sword, but for some reason the blade is scratched
To my great surprise, the "new" sword has three distinct scratches on the blade. I don't think they were obtained in combat. The negligent attitude to the quality of the order and neglect of the client is bewildering. It only remains to ask: what did I do to deserve this, or is it just for fun? I wonder if I will get a satisfactory answer to this question and will my comment be published at all?...  Only time shall tell...

Oxtail Dao
This is a well balanced weapon. It comes sharpened to be dangerous. Gives a little more oommppff to Tai Chi practice. I am happy with this purchase.
