scabbard Reviewed by Michael Scott on Feb 27, 2016   3 out of 5

Scabbard was split about 6" found it to be made by injection molding and very, very thin. I had some fiber glass left over from another project and fixed it. blade not to sharp, takes about an hour to hour and A half on black Arkansas stone to get it right. for the price still A good deal if you have A small work area at home to do some tweking.

Disappointed. Not as good as I thought it would be. It definitely needs some sharpening and there is literally no grip on the handle. A modern take on a wakizashi is a big no.

I just received this sword in the mail today and i am very satisfied with it. I am an enthusiast of traditional Japanese swords, but i have to say that i do like the modern take on it. The only problems I have with it is that the hand guard looks gold in the picture but is more of a bronze in real life, also the metal band on the scabbard that the rope is wrapped around is a little loose, but that's not really a big deal. overall i love this sword

I am very pleased with this blade. It's light weight and very sharp. I would have no problem carrying this thing for long periods of time which is it's intended purpose. I did have a bit of an issue with the lanyard slapping my arms whenever I did practice swings but it was easily taken care of. Oh and the scabbard houses the sword perfectly. It won't slip on you at all unless you actually want to draw it. Over all it's very good. I give it a 5/5. Thank you for the great item TrueSwords. ^_^

An amazing sword for the money. I would have liked the 5160 spring steel better in theory but this one is great! I like the tactical hilt. From my research 1060 is what the great sword makers were trying to achieve with all the foldings but here it is with out the weakness of the folds. Go back in time more than 30 years and you would have one of the best blades made at a very low price. It appears to have a good heat treatment, that will show over time. Very sturdy, sharp, and well balanced. Nice!

I would buy a matching Katana if it were available.

The only con - the scabbard doesn't seem to guide the blade in correctly and the blade cuts into it. This makes it hard to get in and out. Just doesn't line up correctly. Maybe after several more time, it will cut its path.

Totally awsome. I was looking at the Paul Chen Tactical Wakizashi. But I found I like the Tactical Wakizashi by Honshu even better. Now if Honshu would make a Tactical Katana, I would get one of those too.

This is a great sword and would recommend it to any sword enthusiast.
PROS: -Small and portable, this sword is very light, not flashy in any way and gets the job done.
CONS: Mine came sharp but not razor sharp like the other reviewers' and the lanyard at the the end becomes slightly annoying when swinging, but, fear not for it can be easily removed.
For some of you people who dislike trademarks or any other type of writing on the blade for you feel like it ruins it, then a heads up: On the spine of the blade just above the guard, there is a faint 'CHINA' brand and hardly noticeable unless you pay attention to the small itty-bitty details like me and as seen in the picture at the bottom of the blade is the Honshu logo and on the other side says 'UNITED Hand Forged' in small print. Surprisingly, they didn't annoy me. What annoyed me is that my blade was a little bent to the left and, if I can give a rough estimate, instead of it being like a perfect straight edge it was probably something like 170-175 degrees meaning its about 5-10 degrees from being a completely straight edge. I don't know, it's probably just me but that annoyed me the most. Nothing big, just a small nuisance that I will hopefully get over. FINAL VERDICT: Great blade, must buy. Hoped this helped!

WOW!!! This is an awesome sword!! it truely is battle ready. I like the the brass guard has the holes in it. It alowed me to wrap the handle with 550 paracord and feels much better in my hands. I am a big guy and have big hands so the wrap made a perfect sword even better for me. I already know I am going to buy another one. I also like that its small enogh to strap to your bugout bag. Its the perfect backup wepon when you run out of bullets. Oh I love the face that True Sword sent me a coupon so I can buy my next sword. Plus they are cheaper than anyone eles out there! BUY IT!!!

Excellent excellent sword, out of the box it was razor sharp and nicely oiled, feels perfect in your hand, very light and natural flow, nothing bulky or awkward about it. Definitely recommended.

Absolute perfection. I'm already considering getting another as a backup.
