Got this sword yesterday, it is my first katana and I have to say I am very pleased for the low price.
It came sharp and so far I have no problems with the tsuba or the blade itself. No rattling and very easy to swing.
This sword sells under several names, but it's made by Musha of China. It is a good carbon steel , full tang (nearly to the end of the handle) heavy duty, well balanced blade, comes sharp and is a full service sword with a wooden scabbard and a well wrapped handle.
I would say that this sword is one of the best buys on the web now.
I purchased two of these on a 30% off sale at True Swords,,it is also available on other BudK company sites under the code PCSS125 and in a Golden Bamboo design model as PCSS047BK
I highly recommenced these swords as it is one of those rare bargains that are only found with much searching time.
Just make sure you buy the blade with the heavy blood groove as there is a substitute model that is slimmer and inferior that also sells under the same product code.
This sword is pretty good, but it didn't come very sharp and rattles a good bit. Might recommend for a beginner or for decoration, but it had trouble cutting some simple things, like a thin holly branch or a jug (Didn't go all the way through)
This is awesome. I got this and the bamboo full tang model at the same price. This is razor sharp, very well balanced and about 2-3 inches shorter than other standard size katanas.
Have cut the box it came with while it was standing leaving it static. static cuts on empty water bottles and milk jugs.
simplistic but appealing design scheme, fittings are all very tight on the one i have recieved, no rattle, blade fits securely into saya which is in itself very nice with a little motiff and a textured finish instead of the usual piano black lacquer
Get it why not or two use for practice or light cut practice on soft targets like water bottles/jugs newspaper rolls/sheets.
I just got the sword today it is sweet.The tsuba looks awesome and the blade is sharp.I just can't say anything bad about this sword.My favorite thing about the sword is the tsukamaki.I think if you want a sword you should buy this one.
Just received my sword today in the mail and can say it was a great buy the sword does fit very well in the saya, nice weight on the blade haven't tried a cut test but did come pretty sharp also loves the simplistic look of the overall sword...True Swords is great
I Absolutely LOVE This Sword, It Isnt Too Heavy, Fits Quite Well In The Saya, And Is Just gorgeous Overall, The Only Downside That I Can See, The Entire Blade Grind Appears To Be Done By A Machine. But For The Price, Its Absolutely Wonderful, Great Medium Quality Beginner Sword For Collectors Or Even Bushido Practitioners!
Wow! Lightning fast shipping. Shipped on Mon at 11am and was delivered to my house Tuesday at 10am so 23hours and the sword was in my hands. The sword is fantastic. Tight, nothing rattles. The only noticeable issue is the bamboo pegs used to hold the tang in the handle go in high on one side and come out about half a cm lower on the other side. And the sword is quit heavy. But I'm 100%pleased. Can't beat it for 40$. It makes me excited because if a 40$ sword is this good imaging what their 200$ swords are like. Will definitely purchase more katanas from trueswords. Thank you so much.
Just received this sword, while it IS my first sword, it's AWESOMEÂ in my opinion, the fittings are all tight, the sword fits snugly inÂ the saya, the blade is sharp, cuts bottles with no effort. The onlyÂ downside is that the blade is like a giant knife, it will cut softÂ things just fine, but it will get nicks in it if it's hit againstÂ something hard. I got a minor nick in it from hitting a fairly thinÂ tree branch, like 1/4 an inch think, but it's only $40 so you can'tÂ expect the blade to be any better than this for that price.
I've had this sword for a few years now, so I have had the time to use and break this sword in. All in all, the sword feels very sturdy when swinging, and it cuts very cleanly through any decent target (small brush and water bottles) assuming you have good technique.Couple of issues though: The metal bit at the end of the scabbard WILL come loose, and so will the pommel piece. Good thing is some super glue will not damage it and will keep it intact, but I just thought I ought to mention this. The cord wrap around the hilt also slides around, so it needs readjusting after every bout.But anyway, the point of balance is about 6 inches from the handguard, the handle can be removed and cared for, and it makes a beautiful multi-toned whoosh when you swing it correctly. The blade is pretty thick and not very flexible, but then again if you want to spar with a katana, you should probably buy something unsharpened. Overall I am very pleased with this sword considering the price, since I expected more problems than just the end cap coming off.
