so i have been a true swords customer for a while and ive gotten quite a few items and this was going to be the king of the pile but sadly this is the only item i have that isnt up to word or par with the other items of the collection :/ sadly it wasnt sharp bearly a point a bit bent and the black stripe down the sides is noticibly wonky besides that its a solid sword the groves ontop pretty sharp handle feels nice same as the waight of the sword but over all its good but could be alllllllllot better :/
True Swords Fan here ... having made 3 orders in the last month!! An honest review of this item.
ITEM # 46 BK2662 BATTLE READY CYBORG NINJA SWORD FULL TANG
It arrived with 1 of my 2 recent orders. Its a really nice looking sword that could double for a real kick ass longer version of a machete! Very cool design, nice painted on inner blade black coloring, good tight nylon cord wrappings and full tang! Feels good and balanced with just a slight hint of forward increased weight due to the blade thickness, which is a good solid grade of steel. It feels real good and solid!
Only cons are that the blade was not what I would call "Battle Ready" due its lack of sharpness as it was rather dull. Setting up a cardboard pillar which I test all my blades, it merely just bent the cardboard instead of slicing cleanly through it like others. It did knock the hell out of it though letting me know its power! With some sharpening..... NICE!! Second con... Having just the wrappings on the full tang made it become slightly uncomfortable after several minutes of getting a feel for how it handles.
Overall I am pleased with the item because I can always sharpen the blade as well as do minor modifications for comfort. I would pick one of these unique swords up!
Okay, So update: i had bunched up the wrappings so i could get a better grip. Thankfully, there was paracord available to me, on top of the cord that extends from the handle.this made the grip slightly more round and less irritating to use. I love using it now. Also, I'm fairly certain Raiden wore his sword on his side, so I made it so that i could do the same. Anyways, it's fairly easy to replicate and secure the grip so it's easier to use.
I'd recommend getting some paracord if you want to make the grip better. other than that, it's a good sword. Flexible, sharp, strong front-to-back, and hefty in such a way i feel like I could split a log.
Handle (nylon wrapped part) is actually shorter than its ninja tech sword brother. And instead of being perfectly parallel, the front and back of the blade taper a little before the tanto point. Other than those minor details, it looks fine. I wish the handle wasn't as wide front-to-back. Kinda wanted it to remain like its predecessor.as for the thickness of the blade, it's okay, but I would've preferred it to be a tad thicker to compensate for length.
Hope this critique helps
Favortie sword on here hands down. Want to buy a sword? Get this one
Loved this sword sharped it made it really combat ready so far its lasted me long had a few smuges and weird cuts but it still useful!
I was actually kind of disappointed in this sword. The two tone finish is nice and it is pretty durable, but the proportions are awkward. The handle is too small to get 2 hands on as feels necessary, and the blade is too wide at the base. The wrappings on the handle were loose and hurt the hand after only a few minutes of use. Would not buy again.
Have you ever had the urge to fulfill your calling as a cyborg ninja... Well your going to have to wait because technology as it is today makes it impossible, however, you can act like one with this awesome sword.(Ninja cyborg costume and abilities not included... yeah, i wish i can swing that sword around like Raiden, but i can dream cant i?)
Nice weight and length. Came semi sharp but that is a easy fix. Handle would need some adjusting, the rope handle just isn't a good fit so will have to fashion a better handle for it. All in all very good for the price
OMG This blade was AWSOME.I love this sword. I love this sword.I know i said it twice but I really do.
This thai nagi sword is LEGIT! I already had the combat commander Gladius, and this is twice as awesome! The carbon steel slices through grass mats like butter and you should see what it did to watermelons!
