This is an interesting sword. One one hand, it's poised, maneuverable, and heavy enough to really cut with. On the other hand, the blade on mine was not tempered and hardened, so one swing at a tree 3 in branch resulted in a sizable dent. If you're looking for a practice sword, this is great, but for actual sparing...not so much.
Idis is a well built sword. Blade came sharp. But can be sharpened to shave. I intend to use it only as a showpiece only. But considering its quality I think it could be used for real Combat. I used a ceramic stick to bring the edge up to shaving sharpness .Be careful when sharpening the Finish is so nice you couldn't easily scratch it. Butt if you do use some fine crocus cloth and lightly polish out the scratches. Then you some polishing cream which can be found at Parts houses for polishing metal. I can only say that the Japanese people who used the sword to defend them selves had to be battle-hardened people. I can see one of these swords could could inflict serious damage to a person. For the price and quality I would recommend this sword. It's a nice piece to add to your collection. But I keep mine locked up in my gun vault because of its razor sharp edge. I do consider it a weapon.
Nice sward for the money. It came sharp. Keep in mind swards can't be razors. They will chip.
The sward is very nice looking. Handle with Ray skin is well assembled. This is my first sward. I don't have any comlants. The blade has a very high gloss finish. I wish I would have had my wife's name a ring and my Name put on it. It's worth the money.
Nice sword, sharp, everything is tight
I love the leather wrapped handle
I wish all my swords had leather wrapped handles they look better and feel better for grip and handling
I really don't like cotton wrapped handles but what are you going to do
My only complaint with this sword and most swords is weight
Do they make swords that are lighter?
I would definetly recommed
I got this sword for less than half this four years ago or more
Now I am really glad I got it.

ordered for a friend - delivery was quick! the sword is sharp, feels durable and the engravings are good eyecandy. comes with a holding bag which is a nice bonus
Excellent blade! Craftsmanship is impressive and shipping was fast. All fittings are tight and of good quality. Engravings are nicely done and visible. Dragon tsuba is well made also. The sword fits snug in the saya.The blade was sharp right out of the box. After a few strokes with my honing steel the blade was nearly razor sharp. This blade goes through bottles of water cleanly and with ease.Excellent value for the price overall!Thank you TrueSwords!I plan to stick with TrueSwords for future purchases because their products are of excellent quality for the price and they offer excellent shipping and customer service.
I should start out by saying that this is my first sword i bought from true swords and i must say that i was very impressed and shocked about how beutiful the sword was and how its weight was overall even. I did notice something that was kind of a let down for me the dragon engraving was barley visible. The blade come sharp but not razor sharp. I am very grateful to true swords for such and awesome sword. Thank you true swords.
this is a very nice sword well made. it came sharp not shaving sharp but who is going to shave with this. i put it through a few test and will recommend it. testy one four layers of cardboard very good. then the two litter test went throw three in one cut. last test had a deer i got last night cleanly removed the head and flanks very well. this is a real sword and really works.
nice sword made well... engraving was poorly done. you can barely see was a bit of a let down for me. Also on another note was not sharpened i thought it would be because of the title but baggers cant be choosers. other then that cool sword
