This is great sword, the quality of everything is absolutely perfect, but going so far as to say this is a sharp is a big stretch. I couldn't even slice through a hollow cardboard box using an overhead swing... Again it's beautiful, delivery was fast too; its just not sharp at all
Absolutely the best 40$ i have ever spent! Handle is well wrapped and no loose parts. It is a bit lighter than my other katanas, but thats no big deal to me. This is a solid katana for only 40$. I have no doubt that this sword can handle some abuse. But please be carefull and responsible. I wouldn't try chopping down a tree with it, so to speak. I doubt you can find this quality and beauty for 40$ anywhere else but here. It will fit well with my higher end katanas.
YES I would highly recommend this to anyone. Thanks True Swords. Signed, ham'rd skull ??
It is a good blade, 40 bucks for a real functional katana is a hell of a deal, The blade is good, The fittings are are nice n tight, Imitation rayskin, But does feel good, Love the shiny black and gold, And came quite sharp, 2 things though, 1, Its not EXACTLY as bright as the picture, Close but not quite, 2, It is full tang, But it is EXTREMELY light for a katana, The lightest in my collection by far which is amazing, And IMO, Mush has a higher quality level then an Onikiri, So you wont be disapointed in this.
Great sword! Quite happy with how it turned out. The sword obviously has had some personal attention. The tip has a slightly different sharpening bevel than the rest of the sword but is still sharp, it seems like it's supposed to have that. The handle is tightly wrapped and not frayed. However, the sword is meant to be drawn from the right so the kurikata and shitodome are a but akward. Other than that, I'm completely satisfied
The blade came sharp as all hell with mine, Like to the point i dont even want to clean it with rice paper, Thats how sharp it came, Its full tang, And looks gorgeous, Nice n shiny, The only problem that came with mine was the loose saya top part, "Could take it on n off" Thats no huge problem and nothing super glue wont fix, For 40 bucks, This is really an amazing buy, The craftsmanship is impressive, Supremely impressive considering the price, Looks good and smells good, Scabbard is nice, I definetly reccomend this, Its too bad it doesn have alternate colors like red or blue, I would definetly buy more if that was the case.
Very cool sword, looks great on my wall. Very sharp too, definitely a good katana especially considering the price too.
I bought this sword about a month ago wanted for a long time and now was able to get it the craftsman ship is great very sharp like I wanted balance is nice a great piece for self defense and sword play at a good price like all ways .
I wanted a katana that was not $300 but was still really good and this does that. For $40 it is a really good katana. It comes very sharp. All I have cut was the shipping box it came in and it sliced through it in a single hit the 3 pieces i made out of the box. It is really good for $40.
Just bought this model and the tatsu maki i think its called. i've tried many swords from musashi/munetoshi and others in the 60-200 dollar range and wanted to take take it easy lol. they recently arrived, for the most part i'm very happy with the purchase. Both are razor sharp, I'm a big fan of the textured sayas and the fittings on both were good (especially the tatsu) The samurai full tang model has an issue with something in the handle, either the tsuka/blade/tsuba or any combination of these doesn't fit right and results in a gap when the blade is in the saya. Also when swinging it doesnt necessarily feel secure. This however is the 2nd time i;ve purchased this one, i gave the 1st one away as a gift and it was tight fitting and felt good so this is probably just something i can fix with a little tlc.
The important thing here is for sub 40 bucks what you get at the very least is a decent quality carbon steel blade. Both of these are well balanced and suprisingly aesthetically appealing. The gold accent on the samurai full tang pops out and the tatsu has a motiff on the saya that really looks crisp and compliments the sword.
These are also shorter than a lot of standard size katanas so for younger practitioners i think these could be an option to consider especially if you are working on a tight budget. Because of the price make sure to properly exam the sword upon arrival and be able to identify basic safety check points if you will on the overall construction and its security. Very sharp, no joke so be very careful.
I won't lecture, be responsible
great option to learn about the katana sword and general maintenance. I wouldn't recommend using these any targets other than light (paper water jugs cardboard newspaper rolls etc.)
If you aren't going to be using these for any kind of actual training related to swordsmanship. maybe just a collector or for decor these are great options, they feel considerably solid compared to mall katana and i would say they are "functional" so if you pull it out to show friends the edge will surely impress them
This is a hand forged sword (so I've been told), and it costs just under $40. When I received this sword, I was pretty well impressed with the sword. Every part was a tight fit, the only problem was that the sword was not even close to being straight. it was veering off to the right by about an inch, and it was way off balance. I was looking for a sword to practice with, and this would not do. That being said, true swords emailed me a return shipping label, and a full refund faster than greased lightning. I purchased the "Samurai Special - Tatsu Maki Full Tang Katana", which was the same price. It arrived quickly, and I am happy with it. It also veers ever so slightly to the right as well, but again, this is a $40 hand forged sword. Overall, I have had a good experience and great quality for the money. Just check to see how straight your sword is. enjoy.
