Would a fake katana have a reflective blade and charms woven into the handle?

I bought a katana recently and I'm trying to figure out if it's real, a well made replica, or just plain fake. It has a reflective blade, 2 charms woven into the blade (1 on each side), and a Japanese character on both sides of the sword's habaki. It also has pegs holding the blade in place.
