As deadly as it is beautiful. The girlfriend doesn't mind that I'm going to hang it on the wall because it looks great. This is my first real sword and it's great. My only complaint is mine has no visible boshi I'm thinking because the kissaki didn't get the final polishing. There's a few teeny tiny nicks in the kissaki that I feel it wouldn't have if it had gotten that final polishing. I'm not even taking off a star for it because I still love the sword. I'm going to polish the kissaki myself which should remove those micro nicks and bring out the boshi, I feel I could see it under certain light but the lesser polish on the kissaki is noticeable to me but I'm a freak about details. Either way this thing is a razor. I trimmed my bushes with it, they just fell away. It cuts paper, in fact if you hold the paper right you can just kinda lop off pieces. I tried and failed to cut a plastic apple sauce bottle, sent it flying across the yard like I was playing T-ball. Real solid hit and the sword took it, tried a couple more times but I couldn't do it. I bet the sword in more skilled hands could though, thick plastic. I only cut half way through. The blade is good I think, you're really paying for the artwork though, it looks great. You could get more blade for the money going with Cheness, and I'll probably add some of them to the collection eventually but I wanted something unique to start it off. Didn't buy on here, tried to but they were out of stock and canceled my order on me. I loved it so much I thought I'd leave a review though.
This is my second sword purchase from True swords, and I am now a customer for life! My first was the Masahiro Shadow Warrior.Both are fine weapons but the superior quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail of the Ryumon were evident right out of the box.It is easy to see why Ryumon swords are considered top of the line. After thoroughly cleaning and oiling the blade, (which is the finest I've ever seen by the way) I put the Pheonix through a few Iaido kata and found it to be well balanced and comfortable to handle.Both of my swords will be used regularly but the Ryumon is hands down my favorite. The only mistake I can see that True Swords has made with this incredible weapon is underpricing it, but that's their loss not mine. Wish I could give it six stars but there are only five.
I use this sword for kata and cutting. It is beautifully balanced and cuts well, air and cutting mats alike. The Koiguchi was not cut properly and required some manual shaping, but it was very minimal and ultimately was probably made that was for a snug fit. I would definitely recommend this and it is well worth the price.
Fantastic blade, great feel, and all in all real god craftsmanship, doesnt come with the wooden box though, but most sertainly worth the money.
This sword is absolutely amazing very very well worth the 300 bucks for it. i tested it by throwing a wet rag in the air (the water was to make it a little heavier) and letting fall against the blade. the rag went in 2 upon contact. there are no problems with the sword save for one: when you first get it, the bamboo pegs holding the hilt together are very tight and hard to remove. after a while, they should loosen up. there are a couple things not mentioned in the description though: the saya shows a heron with a long blue tail that wraps around the saya, and there is a heron stamped into the pommel of the hilt, and into the fuchi just below the tsuba. it is worth the $300, and it comes sharp. mine had a smudge on the blade, but it was easily removed after i cleaned it. True Swords, your a bomb, keep it up!
