Very comfortable and it looks and feels amazing. I like the feel of the Imitation leather and it also came in pretty quickly too. I definitely would recommend to others on getting it. Only issue I had was that its hard to draw from your back while strapped on. Maybe not right for Katana sized sword but I bet it will work well with the wakizashi.
The materials are all good, but it needs to be a lot tighter. I have it set to be as tight as possible but it needs more. I can draw both of my katanas from it just fine, but getting them back in is not possible.
You have brought up a very excellent details , regards for the post. fdkbeedecfkk
Excellent product and very fast delivery. The "imitation leather" is like a very thick rubber and appears to be very durable. Although a katana would be virtually impossible to draw from the back, my wakizashi fits, wears, and draws perfectly!
Well made leather strap system. I applied one on the musashi 1060 carbon steel sword scabbard and the Ultraviolet sword scabbard and they fit perfect. The straps I pulled as tight as I could and there is no slippage at all. I ran with them on my back and jumped up and down a few times. Highly recommend these. They will even fit on some shotguns and rifles. Well done again True Swords.
I have had the system for nearly a year, so Iâ€™ve had adequate time to evaluate it. I believe the shoulder would be more comfortable if wider and should be of better material as the shoulder strap cracked. Fortunately there are many leather craftsmen in my country and had a new one made of leather. I was looking for something to carry a katana hands free and out of the way and this system works well. While finding no true faults with this carry device other than the strap material I have to take exception to those who posted in their review that the sword cannot be drawn with the Back Strap in place. It is also possible to remove the carrying device from the back and draw, but that is cumbersome and unnecessary. I have said before that the draw can be done from the back and people continue to post otherwise. Below is a short video I made and should convince the inept it is possible, and should carry more weight than my written statement. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_Dia8753FA
I've had my back strap for a few years now. The quality of the system is actually rather nice - I've had no problems with any stitching, no problems with the buckles and such. The leather has held up nice, despite a minimum of attention.However, the one problem I have with it is that it's proven entirely impractical. The sword does not rest low enough, perhaps? The result is that the sword cannot be drawn while wearing this as the picture shows.That being said, it is still rather useful if you don't mind carrying the blade over your shoulder, as you would a rifle.
This is an ok blackstrap only things is drawing the sword out and back in is probably impossible other than that it's good for transporting from place to place.
Exactly what I wanted. Will help in my training of a different stance and technique.
It serves its intended purpose admirably, which is to sling a sword over the back. The false leather material is stiff but durable; unfortunately, the straps aren't the most comfortable in the world for the same reason. For those trying to draw swords from the back, movie- or videogame- style -sorry, no can do. Just not designed for that.
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!
