This katana is not only a piece of art it is a functional "cutter" that is differentially hardened with real hamon!! What more could you ask for at this price point? I have wanted a katana for over 30 years, but had never purchases one as "wall hangers" simply didn't appeal to me and functional swords were never in my budget. MUSASHI and True Swords changed all that for me. I couldn't be more pleased!! I believe the Praying Mantis Sword is the most underestimated and stylistically "Samurai like" of the silver series lineup.
Just received my musashi mantis katana a few days ago, this sword is amazing! All of the fittings are rock solid. The sheath (excuse my lack of knowledge on the Japanese word) is great quality and holds the sword well. The sword does not tip out when turned upside down. The blade is absolutely beautiful and the real hamon stands out perfectly. The blade is razor sharp so be careful, it's takes hair off of my arms, no joke. Great value and one of my favorite pieces. You will not be disappointed.
Mostly everything as i expected it to be, except for that it wasn't that sharp.
First off i like to say thank you to true swords because not only is the serves awesome and friendly but, the folks at true swords have helped me so many times and even included a free gift before! and i would like to say thank you guys so very much! ^_^ Now about the sword, this is actually the first sword I've ever owned a sword so I'm just an amateur when it comes to katanas. It has a nice blade that is sharp, the cotton cord wrap is nice and does feel good in the hands, all the fittings are tight, and the main reason I got this Katana was because the suba because it looked liked and had the same shape of the Nietono no Shana and i really want that sword too!!! but it's no longer available. over all this is a great sword! thanks again True swords a pleasure doing business with you as always.
