      Very cool product

      Got a lot of compliments wearing this necklace. My only complaint is the pendant would slipping out of the metal necklace chain. I think an easy solution is to buy a thicker chain or attempt to choose the hole that connect the pendant to the chain.

      A Little different than the pictures

      Let me start off this review by stating that I do like the pendant. It’s a nice design, I love the Damascus steel sort of look.

      I chose the stainless option and I live in a very wet and humid climate and have so far had no issues with rust or obvious discoloration.

      That being said, I do find it a little strange that a non stainless option is offered, if you buy and wear non stainless steel it WILL rust, people sweat, it rains outside, oxygen alone can cause steel to rust. There’s a reason watches and chains are main from stainless steel.

      Anyways on to the things that I didn’t like as much. If you look through the pictures (of the magatama pendant) as of 8-29-22 there are actually 2 different jewelry boxes pictured, one with and one without a window. I didn’t receive either of these, I received a completely different, much smaller box that wasn’t pictured. It didn’t have a metal clasp (or any clasp) and was clearly much cheaper than the boxes pictured.

      Same goes for the chain. I got the “Metal chain” option. It looks nothing at all like the one pictured. It is much thinner and a very different style of chain. To be fair, they never said it would look like the one pictured but I had assumed if they were going to offer a metal chain that I would receive the one in the pictures.

      The little piece that connects the pendant is much bigger (wider) than the chain itself, but also very thin. It’s also a completely different connector than what was pictured. In the images it’s a 3 piece connector, but mine is a single very thin bent piece of steel. I took a nap with the necklace on and had found the the magatama and connector were no longer attached to the chain when I woke up.

      The magatama pendant I received is a little different than what was pictured on the website. The first very noticeable difference is that mine had a gash on the back of it when it arrived. There’s also a small crack where the tail of the magatama starts. The tail of the pendant I received doesn’t really come to a rounded point like the picture. Mine was actually flat at the end of the tail. I’m definitely nitpicking at this point but the flat tail end rather than a rounded point definitely takes away from the sharp look of the magatama. Hatano Sen did say the pieces were hand crafted and therefore they would all be unique, but I was hoping that was more in regards to the pattern differences rather than the overall shape itself.

      But that brings me to my conclusion. It’s a hand crafted pendant that’s only $50 (plus shipping). You aren’t paying for luxury or tens of hours per individual piece. Sure, the box and the chain weren’t the same as what was pictured but that was likely the offset rising costs coming out of the pandemic. At the end of the day it’s still a cool pendant for just $50.

      Hello Travis!

      Thank you for reaching out and taking the time to leave your honest feedback, we really appreciate it!

      With regards to the box and pendant bail/chain - we have changed the designs of our packaging due to some supplier issues which is why what you have received appears different. Additionally, we offer a stainless version as some customers have mentioned that they want their piece fully traditional for them to care for on their own.

      We would also like to address your concerns completely, including the piece you received - could you please drop us an email at info@hatanosen.com with your order number? Our goal is to ensure you are completely happy with the order that you received, and we will work with you till you are satisfied.

      Best,
      Hatano Sen

      Shipping arrived on scheduled, there was no issue with the quality and craftsmanship of the Magatama. It displays a nice shine to go well with any outfit, and going with the chain option was more ascetically pleasing. I would definitely buy more again.
