A good purchase – Japanese Samurai Umbrella with Carrying Strap - Black Reviews

posted by NNJJHH on 07/30/2010 Certified Owner

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.
Other:
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)
