This is the first real sword I've ever purchased and just wanted to see I am more than pleased with this purchase. Definitely a great first sword to buy. I can't wait to learn how to properly wield this bad boy. Huge thank you to trueswords and to the masters from Shinwa. This sword is a masterpiece.
Katana arrived today and is absolutely stunning to see in the daylight. A little rattle when in the tsuba but nothing major. Arrived sharp and oiled, just as expected. The details on this piece are phenomenal.
Very pleased with my sword. My blade also looked more like the fiery inferno blade but everything else was the same. To be honest I think I like this color more. Very happy with my purchase.
This was my first buy. When it came in it had some sort of white chunks on the blade that felt like extra oil. (Their was a lot) and to tiny dings on the end. (I think it's called the pommel) but other that that it looks amazing!!!
Alright well. I'll start off by saying that I am happy with my purchase. A blade like this at retail price would probably cost more than I paid. That being said, I was lead to believe I was purchasing a blackened blade but the one I got was orange and black. It still looks really good though. Secondly, this blade did not come very sharp. To put it into perspective, I have a 10 dollar bush knife from walmart that is sharper. Any random store bought chef knife comes sharper. I would also like to note that this is not a curved blade in any way, so slicing is not really what it will be good for. The wrapping on it after three swings shifted toward the butt even though I had initially assumed it to be quite tightly wrapped. The fake rayskin is only in strips and does not cover the whole handle which appears to not even be hardwood like stated. All in all, it's a good sword for the price. Heavy, but for a folded blade, it's worth every penny.
i have two of these already and just ordered another one. the price is outstanding considering the quality of the sword. I love it. true work of art. fully functional. highly recommend this sword.
I got this sword as a Christmas present(made my Christmas btw:) and it feels, looks, and IS just awesome. The blade is perfectly balanced and cuts Bambo like its butter. The colors of the folded metal are visually appealing.
Mine was cheap and it wasn't that sharp. If you want a good sword, look at Masahiro, Musashi, or Ten Ryu
Those are way better than Shinwa
shipping was fast! Just received this sword today and it's my very first real sword. I grew up on those old aluminum alloy sword with no full tang. All I have to say is that this sword is so sharp that my index finger got cut yet there is no cut mark on my finger. I don't know what that means but I will let you know when I'm done being scared of my new and real sword which still sits inside the cool cotton black bag it came with. Thanks True Swords!
I own this sword and all I can say is it's is amazing. When you hold it in your hand you can feel that it is solidly built, it has a certian heft to it that the mall replicas do not. The sword gives you the impression that it can destroy nearly anything you throw at it. I love the black Damascus steel with the red accents, making the sword look as it if were forged in the fires of Hell itself. But I like the black blade because it doesnt reflect light like a shiny blade. The tsuba is both rugged and elegant. Just in case there really is a zombie apocalypse or proonged civil unrest having this sword at your side is a no brainer.
