Both Shirasaya and traditional katana at this price point are for display purposes only. That being the case, neither would be able to withstand significant abuse. They are best used for display or practice cuts in the air. If you are looking for a sword that can withstand cutting and blocking, you'll have to invest a bit more financially. Those higher quality swords are made of more durable metal and contain a tang that extends all the way down into the tsuka (handle). When made for cutting, both Shirasaya swords and traditional katana are roughly the same in durability, although the traditional katana contains a tsuba, which is a handguard.

Some Shirasaya swords are better for tameshigiri (test cutting) then finished ones. But one this cheap would break easy.
