Reverse blade? Yes. Full tang? Yes. Razor Sharp? Yes. This is the reverse blade sword everyone has been requesting and waiting for. The guard and sword design is an accurate replica to the Rurouni Kenshin anime series. The blade is thick carbon steel with a sharpened reverse edge. High quality guard, glossy black lacquered scabbard, real ray skin, and tight black nylon wrapped handle. This sword can be disassembled for care. The blade-to-handle assembly is following tradition, and 2 bamboo pegs are used for total control over the full tang blade.

Story of the reverse blade sword:

About the Rurouni Kenshin manga:
Rurouni Kenshin is a set of manga and anime series created by artist Nobuhiro Watsuki, set during the early years of the Meiji period in Japan. The English versions of the OVAs as well as the movie are sold under the Samurai X name.

The series tells the story of Himura Kenshin, who ten years prior was known as the Battosai (Battosai in the English manga and as Battousai in the English anime), a Hitokiri (or "assassin," translated as "manslayer" in the American release of the anime) who helped bring about the downfall of the Tokugawa shogunate which ushered in the Meiji period. As a result, he is often sought after by people who want to either hire him for his skills, or kill him as revenge for his past deeds. Kenshin himself grieves for the lives he's taken, and has vowed that he will never kill again.

The manga originally appeared in the Japanese Shonen Jump Weekly Anthology, and the completed work consists of 28 tankobon volumes. The United States release of the manga is being handled by VIZ Media. Rurouni Kenshin is subtitled Wandering Samurai in some English releases. The name is sometimes abbreviated as "RuroKen."

In Brazil, Rurouni Kenshin was published by "Editora JBC" in 56 volumes (each volume is a half of the original tankobon), maintaining its original Japanese manga reading format (from the top-right corner to the bottom-left corner of the book). Yahiko no Sakabato was released by the same publisher in July 10th of 2004, during an event that gathers anime, manga and games fans from all over Brazil called "Anime Friends", which is held every year in São Paulo. Kenshin Kaden, a Rurouni Kenshin encyclopedia was also released by the same publisher in November of 2004.

    The sword is very good quality and is exactly as shown. The only issue I have with it is the blade is not very sharp, other than that no complaints. Weather this is bought to be used or as a collector item it will not disappoint in the quality of craftsmanship.

    So I bought this sword expecting exactly what I got. A cheap sword with poor craftsmanship. Heck they even misspelled handcrafted when they printed it on the blade. I blame the mfg not the retailer so this won't hinder me from buying further items and testing the quality.

    I have a few problems with the sword, firstly it does not have real ray skin on the handle. secondly im not sure if it was supposed to but it has a fake hamon it doesn't say it does in ad but the picture makes it look so.Thirdly it doesn't have a blood groove i don't really care for the blood groove but still it would be nice. and a few more little things wrong with the sword that i don't care to even list but their are others. for the first time i am not happy with trueswords but as always fast shipping.

    I love it. Its as if the sword gust fell out of the anime. If your a fan of the anime or manga, you should consider this sword as a must to have. Five stars all the way.

    I've been looking for the reverse blade for years!! According to the history I've read--not the comic- I'd never heard of the comic series!! From what I've read it was the reverse use of this sword used to defeat the Prominent Master by his surprise at the technique of the wrong side of the blades cuts being backwards.

    Fast and good quality, a couple scuffs on the blade from careless sharpening.
