    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Looks very nice, the handle is very comfortable to the hand, even though it is BIG :)

    Even when the umbrella is open, the handle rests at about chest-height.

    Black on the outside, silver on the inside!

    Cons:

    The strap is too short, plus the clip doesn't hold. Maybe it's just mine, but when I tried to hang it from my back, it unbuckled. I'll have to replace that plastic buckle thing.

    The umbrella-system is plastic, though the main central part is metallic.

    OtherThoughts:

    I think it is a bit too expensive for an umbrella. I can find much better quality item where I live for about the same price but, of course, no katana handle! :)

    Bottomline:

    Still, nice item to show off. I bought it as a gift for my brother since he just drooled when he saw the original on the Internet.

    I can't believe how fast it arrived! Ordered 12th, shipped 16th, arrived 30th (that was one big ass package)
