CHECK OUT »
Ordered on the 11th and received on the 15th, but that doesn't really bother me. I mean, I did order this blade on a weekend, after all. I was just excited to get something that would be unique to my still growing collection of different swords, plus the blood details are a nice bonus.I will admit that I was a little worried regarding the quality of the sword from some of the reviews I had read after making my purchase (quite the idiotic move on my part, since reviews should usually be read first).I had read that the blood on the saya (sheath/scabbard, whichever word you prefer) is more pink than red, which is a valid complaint and did happen to mine, but it's tolerable. It still looks like blood, which is fine by me. Then I read that white... whatever stuff it is... sticks to the blade when you draw it out, which I'm guessing is due to whatever oil may have been put on the blade. Sure enough, it happened to mine, but I'm sure it'll stop after a while. I also read that the blade falls out of the saya relatively easily, which is, again, a valid concern. Thankfully, mine stays in the saya relatively well, though I'm not going to hold it upside-down or anything. There was also supposedly an issue with the cloth grip slipping around the handle, which thankfully isn't an issue mine has.Then there was one review notifying that some of the blood flakes off when the blade is sharpened. I can't say this is a surprising development. It's paint. Seriously. It's going to come off if you sharpen the blade. The grip supposedly also has a tendency to splinter if used to cut things like full milk jugs, which, again, isn't surprising. It's a show piece as far as I can tell, not something to swing around and expect to cut everything to ribbons.All in all, I am very pleased with my purchase. I couldn't care less that the blade wasn't sharpened before being shipped (which, for whatever reason, seems to be something people consider important enough to point out and consider a bad thing), and will most likely make other purchases from this website further down the line. I might buy this blade with the black saya just to have both versions of it.
Ordered this on monday got it tuesday. Great quality blade, sturdy feel the blood is placed and painted well. the handle is sturdy...i immediatly sharpened the blade and now it will cut. Good purchase buy yours now
just got thissword today, out of the box i was impressed! i love the blood stain on the saya and on the blade. i did find out that you get what you pay for, just a few swings and the handle broke almost in half, so i have to fix it with wood glue. i knew it wouldnt be invensible cause of only paying $20 for it, but i just wish it would have been made with better wood for the handle. other than that good buy.
Btw, I'm 43 and didn't buy this to swing around and chop stuff up.Bought for the visual aspect.I like it, although I hung it up minus scabbard because it was just too shiney and *fake* looking to me.Can't beat it for the price.
Amazing sword. Love the thing blood splatter looks real. blade is pretty sharp too. great buy for any sword collector amazing price too
i love the desin with the blood and the case sts sturdy and well built but i dont like the fact that everytime i pull it out the case its covered in stuff from the inside case and its not very sharp its pure dull but besides that its great id recamend it
A very beautiful sword. I love how it looks on my wall, and it is surely the most unique sword out of my collection. The blade is beautiful though i'd rather it come to me sharpened. The wrap is cool though i'd rather is stay in one place while i hold it. Though the blade is very durable and stands up to expectations set for all my blades, the wood that makes up the handle is less than desirable. After the first few strikes to water filled Milk jugs, the wood splintered, making it impossible to effectivly use it in the future. Over all, I give this sword a 4.3/5 for the decoration, but the lack of edge(which was self applied) and the easily broken grip.
It was a gift 4 my girl & she loves it & so do I its not that sharp but u can sharpen it but some of the paint will come off. The other problem I had was it doesn't stay incyde its holder it falls right out
Ok so right off that bat, the blood on my scabbard is pink, not red. The blood on the blade doesnt look anything like on the picture. The blood just looks really bad and in a pattern that doesnt look like a splatter at all. Being the only reason i bought this is because of the blood, i am quite disappointed in how it looks. The pink blood on my scabbard is in the perfect shape of a splatter, if the blade splatter looked that it would be much better. Anywho i dont know if maybe its just mine that looks like this or if they all do, but i must say if they all do, this item needs to be improved. :(
this sword is great it's has a nice finish on it it's not that sharp but only thing you need to do is sharpen it and it's good. awesome sword
