This Cold Steel blade is amazing, stunning and extremely durable. Check out csknives on YouTube, find the "Warriors Cold Steel Katana" video, it proves just how strong the blade is and how sharp it is. It would fit any situation, maybe an apocalypse (zombie apocalypse of course), this thing will slash and dice zombie after zombie, after zombie, after zombie, after zombie, after zombie. I extremely recommend this to anyone looking forward to the apocalypse.
Cold steel did a good job with this katana, which is exceptional example of a practical use weapon without have to pay a pre-$1000 cost. It will never replace a weapon made by a Japanese Master, but most are not looking for that kind of quality. Overall workmanship is excellent, and all fittings are tight (almost too tight).
Things not to do:
"I just took it out to trim my tree in the back yard unlike most buyers i use my blades and it did a real good job going through 2" to 2.5" of solid wood."
This is not what this type of sword was designed for in any respect, nor the proper stance, training, or form.
People like this should be drug out into the street and shot.
Very well made. Thumbs up for True Swords customer service. I wish all companies were this good. Fastestest shipping time, like less than a hour after ordering.
Ordered this sword with extremely high expectations, when I unboxed it it wasn't very sharp at all, except for the tip area. Other than the lack of a razor edge though it was extremely tight and I mean tight, it feels like you could chop through a car hood, wait they did that in the "proof video" already, lol.Anyway, it feels very good, it is heavier than most katanas I have owned but in a way it's a good thing, it's not too heavy as to unbalance it (as some people say). I like how Cold Steel did their own customizing to the handle and tsuba and not just the stereotypical decorative crap ya usually see on swords.So as for the sharpness, it didn't take me long to put a razor edge on it, and I do mean razor, after I was done I ran it down my forearm...not very smart since it shaved a big line of hair off my arm. My fiancee was watching me and yelled at me, lol.Even though it shaved me that well, I wanted it even sharper, so a little more honing, next test was my left leg, upon running it down my leg it actually broke my skin! Wow! So yeah, I think it's sharp enough now, lol. Awesome sword, awesome service and awesome shipping speed, literally next day it was in my hands. Good job Cold Steel, and good job Trueswords.com.BTW I did kind of pitch a hissy fit to customer service on here for it not being razor sharp out of the box and I was given a 20.00 refund for my incoveniance, that's what I call customer service. Trueswords.com all the way baby!
The sword is a piece of cold steel art!!! Great price , razor Sharp,and definitely battle ready. Trueswords as always you have the best prices and customer service. I would recommend this sword to any sword enthusiast.
I ordered this sword a couple of weeks ago didn't take to long before it arrived at my door. I just took it out to trim my tree in the back yard unlike most buyers i use my blades and it did a real good job going through 2" to 2.5" of solid wood. Its a little on the heavy side but it really adds to the cutting power you would look for. if your not afraid to mess up $300 dollars i would recommend this katana to any one looking for a good blade. Not only good but pretty sharp looking too!
a very decent sword for training. not really a show piece but can be. I would recommend buying the imperial version; a lot more detail and shined blade.
I ordered this sword about a year ago and out of the dozens that I own it is completely unrivaled. The blade is absolutely beautiful, in a deadly sort of way, as it is sharp enough to cut a piece of paper drifting to the ground clean in half with no effort as well as the durability and hardness to cut into the hardest wood and rock (Though I wouldn't encourage either. Doing so would destroy the toughest of blades.) Due to the hundreds of hours I have put it through however, I have disturbed the beautifully and comfortably wrapped handle, and it's only prone weakness is to unravel at one of the intricately tied knots where the wrap meets the pommel. I am still enthralled with this blade to this day and recommend it to anyone wishing to have an heirloom quality katana that is practically indistinguishable from the legendary swords that were used in Japan.
the cold steel warrior katana is amazing i cut a basketball straight in half with it its really sharp and for a heavy sword is has pretty good handling the handle is crazy comfortable
This sword is EXTREAMLY well made. Deffinately my most durable sword. The blade is VERY wide. It's easily my heaviest sword, but when you feel like you can take down a brick wall it's worth it. (I Do not advise trying to take down a brick wall. That's just silly)
