I bought this to replace a Musashi 1045 steel Katana I bought .
I am glad I did, it is far better than expected.
On top of that, it is beautiful to behold .
As others have commented, this is a great sword - especially at this price point!
Mine arrived today - two days ahead of schedule. It was perfectly packaged in the usual Musashi retail box, which also includes a Musashi Silver Series Certificate that details all the specifications . The sword comes in a black sword bag. I was impressed with how light it felt. Drawing it out of the bag was an awesome sight as the dark red saya is beautiful. The picture here does not do it full justice.
Drawing the sword from the saya was equally awesome. The blade comes wrapped in a protective plastic wrap. Undoing that and then wiping down the blade you get to fully appreciate the beauty of the steel. I recommend doing it with full daylight so you can see the hamon at its greatest extent. It is really gorgeous!
I have many other swords, most which cost more than this one, but I don't know if they are that much better. This is a solid work of art. And yes I know it's a $100 piece and not made in Japan, etc., etc., but you are going to be hard pressed to find a better sword for the price. It came very sharp - making cuts with no problem straight out of the box. No rattles, nothing loose - firm and tight. It is light and well balanced. With proper maintenance and care, this could be something your great grandchildren could be enjoying many decades from now.
Add to cart - you won't be disappointed. :-)

I can't wait to get this sword on my front door. Lol. I am so excited! True swords, you guys are the best for price, quality, and speedy shipping. I have purchased a few already and I know this beauty is gonna be my favorite!!!
Very solid sword! For $99.99, the price is hard to beat! What surprised me the most was how light weight the sword is. I was expecting it to have more weight to it, but the overall feel of it is balanced well enough for any light or heavy usage. The sword is also a beauty to look at. I really love the nice gloss of the burgundy red saya, it contrasts the black tsuka very well. I am really happy with my purchase and I don't think I could've found another sword for this price and quality.
I love this katana, and trueswords did a great job on the delivery. It was shipped relatively fast, and arrived early in the morning on the date it was estimated for.The sword itself is unbelievably good quality for the price. Musashi Swords is a legend for being able to do this. The hamon is definitely 100% natural, it wasn't bent or kinked and didn't have any deformities to speak of.The fittings are excellent. With cheaper swords, you'll usually get a "rattle" from the Tsuba (hand guard) or habaki being loose, but not with this sword. The Tsuba (hand guard), Habaki, and seppa (spacers) are all extremely well fitted, and don't rattle at all.The fit between the Saya (scabbard) and the habaki, are so perfect that the sword doesn't even fall out of the saya even when turned upside down.I cannot find anything bad about this sword at all. It is perfect, and you cannot find anything better for this price, heck, it even beats other swords that are even more expensive than this one.
Excellent sword. Right up there with one other I have from True Swords with the same description. Only notable difference is the red saya which makes this stand out very well. This is my fifth True Swords purchase and goes toward the top of my display rack.
