    This sword is broken and offered "as is" at below wholesale cost.
    No returns for any reason.

    We received this stock in unacceptable condition for sale to our customers at normal pricing. This is your chance to own a great sword in need of some loving care, at a fraction of the normal cost. We only have 1 of these in stock. New MSRP $549.99, TRUESWORDS.COM standard price $299.99.


    The blade has an excellent edge and has never been used for any cutting. All original factory grease on the blade. The back of the blade has corrosion near the collar. The flash on our camera really brought it out, however without flash it is not as visible. It appears to be rust and can probably be removed and polished back into shape. We have not attempted to clean the blade.

    The mouth of the scabbard is chipped and cracked fairly bad. The scabbard fits over the blade easily and is completely loose. The sword will slide out of the scabbard without effort so please handle with extreme care. As the blade is razor sharp it could be a problem if the blade slides out unexpectedly. We think that the mouth of the scabbard could be repaired. We have not attempted to repair anything on this sword.

    The collar, guard, handle, wrapping, ray skin, pegs, and end cap are all in excellent condition. The fittings are all tight and solid. This would be an excellent condition sword except for the spot of corrosion and broken scabbard mouth.

    In our efforts to reduce the costliness of the blades, we have omitted the expensive mirror polishing that we used on the Imperial swords to create a new series of Japanese swords with a more practical finish. The Warrior Series swords are very handsome in their own right and share the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their more expensive Imperial counterparts. Like the Imperial swords, they have Samé covered, cord wrapped handles and quality fittings. If you’re in the market for a strong, good looking, reasonably priced Japanese sword we know you’ll be happy to own one of these. All come complete with a BLACK LACQUERED SCABBARD and a BLUE/VIOLET COVER BAG. Features a 29 3/8" 1050 High Carbon steel blade with a black braid cord with brass Menuki. Also includes black lacquered wood scabbard. 40 3/4" overall
