Extending my last review for this sword, which was years ago, I find that it's easy to maintain, but does require some maintenance. I sanded the blade to near mirror polish, and that now requires some oil. Thankfully I have a large supply of a mineral oil cream (it contains waxes and oils). The blade, even though cheap, is my most beloved blade, even though I have full tang stuff.
I was very excited when I got this sword, but when I opened the box I was a bit disappointed at how dull the blade was and not to mention the material that the blade is made of is very flimsy. It just lacks that professionally made quality. Though it's not the most efficient at cutting, it is very attractive looking.
This would be awesome if I received it on time... Payed for 3 day shipping and it's taken over a week already.. I want my shipping fee refunded..
First off, I'd like to say I'm very pleased with this sword. I will admit I was a little disappointed when a friend of mine showed me another website selling this sword with the actual black same after I made my purchase (which is what I originally wanted), but after seeing the sword in person, I think the white same (even though it's more like a light beige) is a nice touch.Now, onto the sword itself. Again, I'm very pleased with it. Everything feels solid; the end cap doesn't look or feel like it'll come off, and the blade feels like it's properly secured. Drawing and sheathing the sword does require a little force due to what looks like a layer of silicon (or something similar to it) filling the koiguchi for a more secure fit, but hopefully it'll get worn down a bit with use. The sageo was also unwrapped when the sword arrived, but Vergil never seemed to have it tied in DMC, so that shouldn't be seen as a problem.However, if there was one thing I'd have to say is a problem, it would be how the ito is tied around the tsuka. Don't get me wrong, it's beautifully done, but since the end cap doesn't have a slit to allow the excess fabric to be laced through and tied, the end of one side of the ito is just glued down to the rest of the fabric. While I'm worried this may come undone with time, it should stay secured as long as I'm not too harsh with the sword.Overall, I can't say I've been this happy with a sword I've purchased/ordered online, and I do not regret ordering this beautiful sword. It has definitely become the new centerpiece of my collection. 5/5, would definitely recommend this sword.
I have no qualms with the product other than one thing: They labeled the sword wrong. This is the "Yamato" sword from the Devil May Cry video game series. Present in 1, 3, and 4. They sell the "Rebellion" as well, but I digress. This is a petty big sword. This sword is well put together, balanced fairly well. Honestly, it's as balanced a sword can be, seeing as how it's meant to be a one-handed blade. Over all, beautiful. An amazing piece in Any sword collector's arsenal, game geek or otherwise.
Very clean strong detail great it's just simply amazing the dragon guardian sword aka yamato is astonishing
Katana = Awesome!!!!!The wrapping was a tiny bit dirty, but it was easily taken care of. Not loose at all, great quality, and awesome sheath~! Thanks, TrueSwords! My first order from you guys was excellent!
The sword is excellent as a collector's item. The blade length is consistent with an actual katana, and for those who have practiced with a bokken, feels right in the grip. The saya is also cool as it resembles the saya of Yamato from DMC. The communication of the company when shipping was also great, and it shipped so fast. Trueswords does not disappoint with this sword, any faults that do show up can be fixed with some superglue.
I love this sword it is a great replica of yamato from dmc...but it could be better made it is kinda cheap id be willing to pay more for it if it was of finer quality
Great sword for the price seems very well made bought it to practice katas with its dull it would need some sharpening to be used effectively but i love it shipping was extremely fast bought the 13th got it Today the 15th
