This straight shirasaya (Zatoichi) came sharp and seats well in the saya. There is some rattle when in the scabbard and the wood seems somewhat soft, so dings appear easily on the surface.

The only major part that really came in with this katana is that it's not sharp at all. Mostly like a rusty scissors sharpness. You could just fix it up by sharpening it on your own which will be nice. Anyway I also saw that it came very dirty, but you don't see it until you wipe the blade off. The blade itself is full tang, just extremely hard to take out. The blade itself on the good side is that it's perfectly straight and no bend to it. No rattles in the saya (good thing). Finally, the only tough part is drawing out the katana at first. After 2 or 3 tries it'll be easier to draw.
