Got my new baby and it's beautiful ordered my second from u already love it
After reading and watching some videos (The ones with real Japanese instructors) for a few days I finally decided to swing at a few things. I was cutting things way above what this sword was rated for and the blade edge is completely undamaged.
This product really impressed me. It's not junk, it's a fine weapon and I am sold on True Swords!
Cuts through bottles like they are not there. Good heat treat. Missed bottle. Hit 2x4 wooden stand. Cut into wood 3/4" deep. No chips, dents or nicks in blade. No scratches. Sword is put together tightly and fits snug inside the tsuba. Bought one for stepson for Christmas and when I looked it over ordered myself one too. Real hamon. For a hundred bucks I like it better than my 9260 Tenchi from Chenessnthat cost three times as much. It just feels better in my hand. Handle longer with slight wasting in grip. Get this you won't regret it.
This is my first real sword ever. Did a little research, forgive me if I'm not advanced. The hamon line doesn't run to the edge in any areas on the blade. This means a good forge from what I've studied. There's no rattle except when in scabbard. In the hamon there are 2 discolored dark areas about 2 inches by 2 inches which look like a stain?? The blade is sharp, cut myself slightly...lol. Still not sure if this is a " Folded Blade ".
Overall beautiful sword....highly recommended !!!!
I just got this sword and I am totally blown away. The swords blade, the hamon line, the saya, everything is beautiful. I have no regrets buying this and am considering buying another. The only thing i have bad to say about it is that the habaki has "China" etched into it. Still overall, it came sharp, and had a comfortable and beautiful handle and saya.
This is my first review. First of all, this is a beautiful and well made katana! After cutting milk jugs. I decided to see if it was really a fuctional sword. So 2" green bamboo was my decision on what would give me my answer. It cut so clean and smooth! Every cut after that one was great! But, didn't give me that feeling that first cut did. I'm hooked! Can't wait to get my next Musashi from True Swords!
Being the first Katana I have bought from Trueswords (I have ordered a few other things ranging from daggers to ornamental lockboxes), I had high hopes. It was only $99 plus the cost of shipping, and I honestly feel it was worth it. I have practiced with Katanas and plenty of other swords for a few years now, and this blade feels very nice. The blade is a little heavier than what I'm use to using but nice either way.
They even send a certificate telling details of the blade and the name given to it. Mine was named "Shirakawa" (??) meaning "White River" or "River of White" in Japanese. I like it.
Will be ordering from Trueswords again very soon!
This is my first Katana purchase so I am not an expert by any means but I am a extremely critical consumer and I can honestly say that I have absolutely no complaints. It is an awesome blade to look at and hold. Feels real and not like some cheap flea market or novelty store item. I would highly recommend this sword for anyone on a budget that wants a quality product that will obviously last a lifetime with proper care and handling of course.
True Swords bent over backwards to help me buy my sword i.e. I sent them a text saying I could not order the Bamboo because I did not have the right credit card...their response; a sales rep (sorry I can't remember his name) called me and went the extra mile to get my info in and get me the sword..thanks for that.
Anyway the sword is awesome. I took it out and I wanted to hear the report, nothing. hen I remembered it had to be a perfect swing and swoosh..there it was, it sounded beautiful. It cuts the air so perfectly even a light swing of no more than 30 degrees reports. The sword is well made and the balance is great, it just feels right in the hand.
I am very impressed by this sword and True Swords willingness to please.
This thai nagi sword is LEGIT! I already had the combat commander Gladius, and this is twice as awesome! The carbon steel slices through grass mats like butter and you should see what it did to watermelons!
