This was my dream sword. This was my second purchase from this site. Already having high expectations True Sword did not let me down. The sword came sturdy, well polished, no knicks, and with an edge. I couldn't be happier.
I ordered this sword last year and I have to say you get what you pay for. I've used mine for all sorts of things and whether it is real Damascus steel or not, its definitely a good starter sword and if you have any problems with your sword its most likely got screwed up in the mail because mine was in excellent condition. No loose pieces and no damage, although the box is a little cheap it has a nice look about it. I'd say 3.5 out of 5
I recieved the shinwa nodachi sword I ordered today,(no thanks to ups), It was left leaning up against my neighbors porch.when I called customer service I was told it wasn't thier problem,to call ups. upon looking over the sword it rattled around in the scabbard,there were knicks in the blade and it wasn't very sharp.the customer service rep upon hearing a not to happy customer let out a heavy sigh and asked rather rudely if I wanted a return label to send it back. It will be the last time I buy a factory second from this company.
We are very dissatisfied with this sword. I am not a collector, I study kenjitsu. The blade slaps around in the Saya badly. The blade itself is great with a very nice edge however the branding logo and name of the company on it AND the text on the other side of the blade make it look like a toy. So I gave it two stars due to the graffiti on the blade and the poorly fit Saya. It is not worth the money, Mushashi is far superior.

Another satisfied customer. This sword is my second purchase from True Swords. I'm very pleased with the quality. It's a tight fit in the scabbard and that's a good thing. I'd rather have a harder time getting it out of the scabbard as opposed to it falling out of the scabbard.
What are it's cutting capabilities . I want a sword of great cutting capability not to walk with.?
Pretty sword. It is long and straight, full tang with a hard wood handle glued onto the tang. It can not be used as a cane which dissappointed me because it is marketed as a cane sword. It is simply a straight shirasaya.
My order was delivered much sooner than I expected! This sword is very sharp and seems to be made of good quality materials. I definitedly recommend this sword for collectors or practioners of the martial arts.
Ok I just got this sword today, and I was very much impressed! I've always wanted a really cool sword cane and this one jumped out at me. It's my first buy from true swords, so I'll probably be coming back.Ok, time to review it. Like other reviewers have stated, it doesn't like to stay securely in the saya, or sheath as I have learned. Yeah, I'm not a know-it-all when it comes to Japanese swords... deal with it. I alleviated this problem by placing a small piece of duct tape on one side of the habaki, or the small metal piece at the base of the blade.My friend said it looked like there was oil embedded in the blade, because it had a ripple pattern on it... I kind of had to give him a history lesson on Damascus steel, because thats what it's supposed to look like.Overall, yes. Buy this product if you want a sword cane that makes an impression. 5 out of 5 from me!
Came in 8 days.... Mainly my fault for ordering on a friday since once the weekend ended it moved fairly fast. When it arrived I just couldnt say anything but, WOW. It looks brilliant.... The blade itself of course needed a bit of cleaning as it came with some grease and oil on it... The only real downsides are that it wobbles a bit in the saya and its just a slight bit too high to be a cane for me. Other than that damn amazing! A great buy for the price!
