My first purchase from TrueSwords - and a good one. Delivered within a week on the cheapest shipping and in good condition.
Overall, the sword is very well made. The blade came a bit bent, but with a little work it shouldn't be hard to fix, and it by no means makes the sword unusable. The material is very durable; it stood up to a very intense training session without even a dent. The measurements are exactly as I expected (although I had to calculate them myself due to a badly written description), and the blade is nearly the perfect weight for it's size.
Visually, the sword is a beauty. The designs are subtle but interesting, and the handle is fairly ergonomic to use. There are also 3 Japanese characters on each side of the blade; while they are hard to read as they're fairly over-stylized, they appear to say "kami no ken", meaning "sword of god". A very interesting choice.
My only real complaint is that the blade's balance is a bit off - it sits about 2-3 inches above the guard. However, with a little compensation in your fighting style, this isn't too hard to counteract.
This was actually my first purchase from True-swords, and it arrived on time in great condition, I haven't had a chance to actually test it out yet, but the material seems firm and the patterns on the "blade" are rather neat. One downside, it seemed a bit short.
pretty thick, pretty wide, comfortable handle, great designs!
