CHECK OUT »
I got this today. It was like Christmas. I opened the box, to find a beautiful display box inside. I opened the display box to find the sword wrapped in a black bag. The anticipation was driving me crazy. I took the sword out of the bag and found a very beautifully crafted sword. The edges weren't razor sharp, but i can fix that. overall the sword is beautiful. It has a nice weight to it. I feel it is a Great sword for the price. no problems with this sword at all. i love it.
I bought this sword a couple months ago and was surprised at what I found. The sword had plenty of glue at where the blade entered the handle, and sawdust regularly gets stuck on the blade from the scabbard. It also isn't real damascus steel, just a coating made to look like one. The blade is a bit weak and when put against my 1942 U.S. sword it was easily chipped. The box is cheap and it is easy for the fabric on the inside to slip and for the styrofoam to come out. You can also clearly see the wood of the handle because the cord wrapping doesn't cover it. It seems weird to me too that almost every review here has 5/5 stars, even the ones where they only say that it is terrible. This review is 1/5.
Absolutely love this sword, its easily the favorite of my collection. If I absolutely have to find a complaint, its that i dont like the box it comes with, but to be honest its not that bad; it just gives it an older Asian feel. Its not a bad thing, it just looks out of place. But the blade itself was perfect! Super sharp on both sides, and i love the color! I dont have a problem with the square guard, not sure how it would hurt you really. And the scabbard is pretty nice as well. It does have weight to it from the full tang and it is real Damascus! I own several Damascus products and this is by far my favorite, totally worth it!
Great blade, strong and heavy,good scabbard,,also the handle is well wrapped. I just wish that this blade came with a smooth, rounded guard. The square guard has sharp corners that hurt.
I got ne of these, sending it back,,,Looks fake to me,,, like a coated carbon steel blade, not real Damascus steel.
I finally got this sword almost half an hour ago, and I must say I am satisfied. I'll admit that after reading the reviews that gave this sword a bad rating, I was scared to buy it. But now, I can let out a sigh of relief. This weapon is even better than Trueswords described it. The black blade is super sharp, everything on it is really tight so nothing on it is wobbly or can move freely, and it's surprisingly heavier than I expected. But I know the extra weight is from the full tang, which makes this sword even stronger. I highly recommend this weapon. This gets a 5 out of 5.
Everyone loves what you guys are up too. This sort of clever work and coverage! Keep up the amazing works guys I've included you guys to my personal blogroll.
I like the sword and its double edged so that's better I only use this sword for practice but when I first got it I always check throow a cutting test with thick bamboo and its a little on the heavy side but a great sword I recommend this sword for beginningers and learn how to take care of it P.S and its razor sharp I barely rube my finger on it and it gave a clean cut
It a good beginninger sword for newbies and is a good sword I use in for home defense and its strong I cut throw bamboo like!e butter so for the be beginningers out there start with this sword or others shinwa swords and do your homework to learn how to take care and sharpen a katana
First off great looking sword, second the sword is a bit thin and therefore it snapped at my match. I also have my doubts about it being "full tang", I believe it is a "half tang" or it just might be a crappy handle.
But this is a review and I would say this blade is worth to have if you can duel wield 1 large 1 light considering the katana as large
But ya very good peice
