Very nice, it is very durable.
It is about the same weight as an actual katana. 24cm hilt and a 74cm "blade."
This is a great bokken for starters. Although the sides are slightly uneven and it warps/vibrates around a little when you hit stuff with some force, it's a great bokken for starters and anyone that practices kendo or any other sword play.
The sword is pretty sturdy and fairly rigid (although there is more flex than a wooden Bokken) it's lighter than a wooden Bokken and when sparring against a wooden Bokken it is a little easier to block against this sword because it's lighter. I have had it for about a year now and have used it almost everyday and it barely has a scratch on it. The Tsuba fits on nice and tight, however, I recommend that you don't remove the tsuba and put it back on multiple times because that will cause it to become loose. The handle wrapping is actually attached to the handle and will never come off so no fear in that. The only complaint that I have asthetically is that it doesn't have as much curve as a real katana and the handle wrappings don't look very real. Overall it's s great Bokken
Excelent bokken... but I didnt like the way ny order was passed from ups to postal delivery... that was a whole big deal... i hope this wont becomme a common practice with trueswords... im used to getting my deliveries by ups on the appointed day and place i appointed to deliver place, having to go to the local post office and pick them up 2 days later?....Whats that all about?..... I've been a loyal cutomer of trueswords for a long time and this is the first time I've ever ran into anyting like this....But the bokken did arrrive and are excellent training tools.... don lr=et that happen again trueswords..... your not the e only place i can buy steel from.
Great for the price, felt good in terms of balance, and had a nice overall feel to it. Being polypropylene, however, it has certain weak spots, and will snap cleanly in two with too much use. Mine lasted for seven months. I prefer the Ichigo bankai bokken to this sword, as it is more durable, cheaper, and definitely more of a workout. However, I would certainly not turn any beginner away from this incredible find.
Just got it in yesterday and it is an amazing product. It doesn't feel oddly balanced while holding it, and I can swing with relative ease. I highly recommend it for something you will use often.
This thing is a beastIf you have the right equipment (some serious padding) you can spar with a pair of these. If not, then don't 'cuz this bugger hurts! Easily broke several branches larger than my arm, and this thing has not even a scratch on it.Only this is that it came a little bit bent to the side but its only noticeable if you're really lookin' for it.All in all a great product, though.
This is a fantastic item! I just got it today and can tell it is easily use-able for practicing, sparring, and even self defense. It's really solid and very sturdy. This could snap through the wooden Bokken with ease at the right angle; and if used for self defense could break an arm so be careful! The only problem I found was that the end of the 'blade' was bent just a tiny bit. It isn't anything to noticeable, but you can see it from the front and back. Even after discovering that little problem, I would still purchase this Bokken again. The guard piece slides down the blade and fits very tightly which is good. It won't come off even after a good hit. 5/5
