This sword was my first of many purchases here, and I was so happy when it came. It's a big, heavy two-hander, with blunted edges. The tip, however, makes quick work of cardboard. The way the guard is designed makes fingering easy, allowing even greater control of the blade. The scabbard is a work of art in and of itself. Now, when mine came, the little metal band had slid off, exposing a spot of glue on the otherwise flawless flat black wooden scabbard. After a little superglue though, it seems good as new. I don't believe I'm doing the sheath justice, as this sword looks just as amazing within the scabbard as it does drawn. But let's talk a little more about the blade. It's a little forward heavy for some tastes, but for chopping people up, and for an anime sword, I think the physics are fine. Speaking of anime, the reason I bought this blade was because I've seen the foam version of this sword in my friends' house, and I thought they'd like the steel version a little better. They love it. An amazing replica.
Great sword for the price but not a weapon more of a display sword. Giggles if you hit it against something. Great for costplay and for SAO fans.
I'm a long time buyer of swords from True Swords. So when I saw my coveted SAO swords on this website, it was an insta buy for me. The detail on the Elucidator is amazing. The weight to it is superb; it's heavy but it's not overwhelming. My last 3 purchases were nowhere near as heavy as Elucidator/Dark Repulser. And the color and materials are both on point. If I could rate this sword higher than a 5, I would. This purchase is a no brainer if you're a SAO fan.
I love the sword. I received this as a Christmas present, and I'm still just as excited that I have it today. Good balance, nice weight, and the details are all clean and correct. The scabbard is so-so, but that doesn't take away from the blade.
Awesome sword, looks just like it does in the anime. The blade is a little loose, but it is just a wall hanger. Great sword!
The sword itself is great. It has a nice weight and is balanced really well. It was almost a week early. There were only two things wrong with it. The scabbard has no place to be hung on my back. Anyone who buys this for cosplay be warned. The other thing wrong is that little gray ring on the scabbard is not secured well. I think it was only glued on because, while taking the sword out of the wrappings, it fell right off. A little glue would have it set to right but it is still a concern. The scabbard needs work but the sword is PERFECT!!!!!
For $60 I was not expecting much from this sword, but when it arrived those expectations were essentially thrown out the window. Immediately out of the box I could tell this was a well made sword. The centers of percussion are correct, the balance is much better than expected, and the overall quality of craftsmanship far exceeds what I had expected. I will absolutely be shopping here again.
I love this sword, very few places can you find such well made sao swords, I've seen many, but never this well made. The Price is remarkable as well, the cheapest sword I could find on sites like eBay and Craigslist that have the sword listed at $150+! This is my first time buying and will be buying another one of your swords in the near future.
Sword was great but you could obviously tell the stainless steel coating wasn't done well. Especially around the hilt of the sword around 50% of the metal was missed with the coating showing a very unappealing rainbow rust looking color. the sword was well made to be sure but the attention to detail was mediocre at best. Hopefully they will honor the return policy because it does show great potential but could be a lot better of a sword.
I ordered this sword, the first version of the dark repulser (the one that's currently $67.99 on here) and the black version of the dark repulser all at once, shipping said I could expect my order in 7 to 10 days, however it arrived in only 4 with all three blades so props to trueswords for that! The packaging was done very well, I did order package protection and they didn't disappoint in that regard. This sword is pretty awesome, I really can't say I'm disappointed with it at all and the version I got was the exact one in the picture, with the "white cross" on the gaurd, not the one with four black stars on the guard that was previously offered. So anyone concerned with that can be at ease, the picture is an accurate representation. It's heavier than I anticipated, a bit heavier than an average sword but anyone purchasing should keep in mind this is a display item NOT an actual sword, call it a wallhanger, SLO (sword-like object) whatever, this is not meant for actual "combat" remember that. It's also pretty blade-heavy so it feels a little heavier than it actually is. To put it into perspective, It's heavier than a real katana which is designed to be blade heavy for cutting power. The center of balance is roughly 4 3/4 inches away from the gaurd. I don't know the actual "tang" of the sword but if I had to guess I'd say it's 3/4 tang. Again, this isn't an actual weapon, can't stress that enough. The blade is completely dull which some people might not like but I don't mind, if you really wanted you could sharpen it. "Made in china" is stamped in small print on one side of the blade, not a big deal really but others might find that off-putting. I'm completely satisfied with my purchase, my blade doesn't "wobble" or "rattle" in the hilt like many other reviews I've read, however you can tell that it moves around slightly if you were to swing it with a lot of force, when I was performing test swings the metal piece above the gaurd on the blade did seem to "tap" the blade and produce a ringing sound, again minor issue. There's really not much else to say other than this is awesome and if you're a fan of SAO you'll fall in love with this thing, even if it isn't "battle ready" I use that term very loosely here. 10/10 would buy again, thank you trueswords from a satisfied customer.
