i bought this a while ago and am very pleased !! i had the non-functional display version and it was cool to look at but, i decided from now on all my swords would be functional and this baby sure is !!! it's very light and easy to wield and it comes apart in the traditional way for easy care and cleaning.. best part is, it was a RAZOR right out of the box !!! and it came with a traditional silk carry bag... nice touch !!
Saya came broken, didn't want to go through Their return policy. Liked the blade, ok sharp is double pinned.definatley a weapon
First time buyer but it looks like a hit the jackpot. Great sword with nice balance and nice detail.
Many more purchases to come. "Too many swords, not enough time"
I was a first time buyer at truewords and was greatly disappointed. The sword arrived damaged and wasn't oiled so this makes me believe i was sent a used open box product.
Unfortunately I didnt get a chance to send it back before the 60 period as it was a gift for somebody so i lost $60.
Make sure you check it and if ur not pleased return within 60 days
This is the best Last Samurai replica you will find! High quality 1045 steel. The hamon is brushed on, the wrap is like cotton, wooden saya and parts of handle, but the rest is good quality katana, especially for this price! The engraving is very cool, and everything is tightly put together still after I sliced up some cardboard (including the box)! Nice display piece for my collection from one of my favorite movies!
So I have had this sword for a while now and think I can give a full review, I shall be brief. The blade itself is very nice, with the right technique, one can cut paper, my only gripe is that the hamon is fake and mine is wearing away. The engraving should be cleaned once the sword is received as the anti corrosive oil is caked in there. The rest of the katana is pretty disappointing. The habaki does not fit flush with the area where the tang ends and sword begins, this causes a strange bulging of metal at the base of the dull half. The tsuba on mine is cockeyed but stiffly in place, the rest cannot be said for the brass pieces on either side of the hand guard as well as the black metal piece that lies just before those brass pieces. All of those are loose. The fuchi, or handle, was wrapped tightly at first but now is falling apart revealing the wooden panels beside the Ray skin. Also the pommel is coming off. I can attest to the effectiveness of the steel, but the handle is poor quality, three out of five for this katana.
Another sword add to my collection. And just like it descrided and it is very sharp and got great weight to it. A pure and true craftmenship to this sword and love the translation. I'll be coming back!!!
Bought this sword at Christmas time. It's quite a beautiful sword. nice balance, tightly assembled, Thank you True swords!. It's too bad you don't carry the wakizashi to go with it.
Recieved my Katana yesterday. And it is a very beautiful sword, sharp right out of the box, well balanced and awesome. It is a great first purchase. It's too bad that you do not carry a Wakizashi to go with it. I did find a short sword though, I won't say where I found it, but it is a Mushashi blade.
