CHECK OUT »
I had gotten this sword yesterday and I put it through extreme testing. It is amazing and I am VERY happy with my order. It's not the world best, but for the money, it's SO worth it.
This sword is the best
The pictures don't do this sword justice. It is absolutely stunning and feels very sturdy and well made. Comes with a certificate of authenticity as well, which I wasn't expecting. I haven't cut anything yet but after seeing how beautiful it is, I don't think I want to anymore. It didn't have a scratch on it and came with some grease that you just wipe off. So worth the money!
So I have to say, I have put this sword to some abuse since I received it. I have cut through numerous water bottles, in groups, hanging, thrown into the air, etc. I have also frozen some water bottles up to a 32 oz size, which is about 4" in diameter, cut through those like butter!!. Now, after hitting the ice with it, it did warp the blade slightly, but I was able to straighten back out. All in all, for the price, I have to say this sword holds up to the test. It is really bad ass!! If you are looking for a good priced, FUNCTIONAL Katana, I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful piece of steel!!
This sword is beautiful! The picture doesn't quite capture the detail of the dragon tsuba. Everything is very solid. The grip feels great and it seems pretty balanced. Mine wasn't the sharpest when I received it though. I understand why it wouldn't be but it would have been nice if it had been able to cut paper out of the box. Speaking of the box, the packaging was nice. It had styrofoam blocks to hold the sword in place. Thankfully the styrofoam didn't just fall apart and get stuck on everything as it so often seems to do. The shipping was very fast. They had it in Fed-Ex's hands within a day. The saya is truly a sight to see. It's black finish is very nice and handles well. My main thing that I'm not crazy about on the sword is that it has the "China" etching on a Japanese style sword. It is on the opposite side of where it says "Musashi" just above the tsuba. I look forward to buying from here again!
This sword is beautiful, and every bit what I expected. It came razor sharp, and finely polished. The handle is tightly wrapped, and does not feel like it will come undone, even with heavy use. The tsuba looks very will made, and the attention to detail on this sword is amazing.
Just recived my Sword today and I can't be more happy. The fit and finish on the sword is top notch, the blade is razor sharp, the saya has a tight fit and there is no rattle at all in the sword. My first Katana was a $300 United and this sword feels every bit as good, only difference in feel is this sword is lighter and faster. For the price you can't beat it, any one thinking of buying this sword I have two words, GET IT.
My first sword purchase and I am extremely satisfied with both the sword and service from Trueswords. For the price, it is a quality sword.
been wanting to get my hooves on a sword like this for a long while now. i can say im very happy with my choice.just got this one in yesterday no damage from shipping the blade was very nicely done and razor sharp :D. will be buying again soon as i save up :3 thanks true swords.
I have to start off by saying I feel like a complete and total BADASS holding this thing! Alright now that I got that out if the way I can start my review. This katana is the REAL f***ing deal, and that's saying a lot for a $80 katana. Most katanas under that $200 price range are made out of some cheap crap material. This katana as far as I can tell is not. I have friend that owns a $200+ katana sword and the only differences I and tell between the two is that his cost him $200 while mine only cost $80 haha. Thanks trueswords!
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!
