I just got this and I can't put it down. It's wicked cool! A great traditional style tanto with the pattern as a bonus.the feel is balanced and not junky. At this low price I was halfway expecting to be unhappy, but no way! I have one small problem... I may have to buy a couple more as gifts for my friends.They like it too. On a scale from 1 to 10. This is a 11. Far better than I expected and I'll buy more. Thanks.
Great customer service! I received this tanto at noon on Tuesday and discovered the tsuba was loose. I called Trueswords cust service just after 5pm and left a message. Johnathan called me back promptly and assured me they would make it right. The next day(today) I came home for lunch and a package was on my porch. Talk about fast! The replacement Tanto is perfect, sharp and all fittings are tight. Also included a pre-paid shipping label for me to return the other one. I will def be doing more business here. Thanks Trueswords!
First, Trueswords.com has amazing customer service... The tanto has a very nice grain pattern. There is not alot of plastic on this that you find in other swords. Overall it is about what I expect at that price. there are a few tool marks on them but otherwise a good value...
For the price it would be hard to beat. Well made, everything was tight.
Well-made, great saya fit and finish.
SO COOL. Very detailed. love the grain in the metal.
For the price spent this little beauty isnt bad. Here are my thoughts on it. 1. The blade is made very well, nicely oiled and sharp as can be, everything fits tight , the only negative is the made in china stamped into blade, cant tell if it is acid etched or stamped but that is the only flaw. 2 the case fairly cheaply made, feels like it may be balsa wood but it will work, polyester cloth on inside still overall it looks nice still on my shelf. The blade is worth it the case is not.
Great knife. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's a bit bigger than the picture makes it seem making my combat knife look like a toy. The blade is beautiful, the wrap is tight the menuki look wonderful. All in all yet another great TS product. Can't wait for my next purchase to come in.
I got this tanto when it went on sale so it was $34.99. I must say, this knife is awesome. It is very sturdy, sharp, functional, and dare I say... beautiful. The blade is very strong and it almost looks like damascus steel. There are only two things that I did not like about it. The main one being that the tip of the blade of mine is not perfectly straight. It bows inward just slightly. However, I can disregard that because it's handmade. Lastly, after looking at the blade, sure enough, CHINA is engraved on the blade. But $40 for a folded steel tanto is still a steal. Buy it. You'll love it.
I love it. It's a fantastic deal. Very sharp. It surpassed my expectations.
