Well, it's sharp at least. I'm not sure but there are probably some weird rules as to what can actually be called a shinken. I own a Practical Plus Katana and I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it decent. It's functional--I haul it out when we do tameshigiri, but I don't think it would be all that great for regular iaido practice.
They're functional, which is what I meant by decent.
