This 27 1/2" chopper sword is one mean machine. A motorcycle chopper cross shaped stainless steel tsuba and cord wrapped handle protect your hands in battle.
Got it quick and easy. Cheap for the quality in my opinion. Incredibly light, can be wielded in both or single hands. I'm going to buy another for some dual wielding fun!
I didn't thought this $13 sword was this good. I have cut almost everything with it, including plastic, wood, bamboo and even a metal plate. In adition, It is super light weighted, you can swing it all day and carry it effortless anywhere. The handle isn't the best, but it's easy to personalize and totally worth it.
I have bought 3 of these swords over the last 2 years and have given them away as gifts. It is a cool little sword , great for chopping through fruits and plastic boodles...it a lot fun..I would use it on wood tho. .just not heavy duty enough but a great sword. The tuba adds the the awesome look of it..it's rare to find a sword with a tuba at this price!
Bought it for a friend he wanted a katana for his birthday and did not get one so I stepped up and bought this one he is rather small so it's the perfect size
The best thing to do with cord wrapped handles is get some heavy duty heat shrink from your local electrical supply... I cut off the cord and cut a 7 section of HS-430-L,4,25 1.10-0.35 in 600V 90C heat shrink... You wont be sorry...I cut off the cord first but it's a personal prefererence. Larger heat shrink is availible if tou want to keep the cord on....but a good heat gun is a must for optimum performance.
What dose the writing on the blade mean and is it Chinese or Japanese i what to get a tattoo of it of it but id like to know what it means
This sword is amazingly good! It's sturdy enough to chop things yet elegant enough to display. I definitely recommend this sword for all beginners that collect swords!
Okay folks, at time of writing,these are $13 each. And they are NOT machetes! So if you run out back and start trying to clear land,you are going to be disappointed. Also, they are not full tang. The tang (grip)is a separate piece of skeletonized metal attached by 4 small spot welds to the blade. Ta-dah! Don't beat it on stuff! It WILL break. But for $13 is is a much nicer display sword than many costing more than $100. Or knock that handle off and you now have a 19 inch solid stainless steel,full tang blade for a great project knife, which is what I bought mine for.The steel is decent and takes a nice edge. So, I like mine. If you want a "real" sword, you are going to have to pay real sword prices. Or buy a machete. You will never see a real ninja cutting weeds with their sword.
recieved very quickly. very sturdy one piece construction. Just wish the sheath was a little stiffer. but overall a very good buy.it adds style to my collection. thanks again TrueSwords.....
I love this sword it may be small but it packs a big punch i made a large order to from BUDK and at first was a little unsure about this sword not as sharp as in the video but with a little elbow grease and a sharpening stone got it razor sharp showed this to a bunch of my friends and they want to buy from BUDK to hey for 13 dollars you cant go wrong
I Luv. the Cross, it can stand for so much! I bought two, 1 for me and 1 for my Son. Some of these other reviews are stupid. If your buying a $10. sword are you really gone to chop wood or hit someone with it?, If you want to chop wood buy a axe, if you want to hurt somebody buy a gun.
I have purchased several swords and knives from Budk and not all have been as sharp as advertised, but for the price I'm paying I really can't complain too much. Although I do wish they wouldn't advertise something as razor sharp when it really isn't. HOWEVER....this Chopper Ninja Katana is most definitely very sharp, just as advertised and I thought I'd better write and say so! I took a gallon milk carton, filled it with water, and cut that thing in half in one full swipe. It was cool to watch and worth writing about. If you're looking for sharp, this is it....
I just bought this chopper sword after debating it 4 about a year. This sword is everything budk said and more. Loving it more all the time.
This sword is amazing totally worth the price I paid for it very lightweight which I like.
I absolutely love this peice of art! Very light, and it came to my door as sharp as could be! I strongly recommend this sword!(:
very good smaller sword for the price.Was somewhat sharp, but was able to put a nice sharp edge on it. I tested it using a gunny sack of sand. Does an excellent job stabbing and cutting into the bag. Would reccoemend to friends and family. Can be used as a working peice as well as display. thanks Bud K.
this sword from the box was outstanding perfect weight i was expecting for an off hand sword, slightly smaller than i expected but still razor sharp and ready for zombies!!!
Are you kidding? For this price I 3x my money at a table. Not heavy-duty, but real dangerous. You wouldn't let an 12 year old play with it. Very sharp and lethal for the money.
Great buy for the price! Love the iron cross tsuba, though it is a lil overpowering on this blade due to the size of each considering. But it has now been claimed by my girlfriend.
This is the best sword I have ever bought. It really is FULL TANG although the handle is flanked by wood and the loosely wrapped but overall this is a great sword. Comes sharp to!!!
I am so glad i ordered this sword,It is light and durable ad is well worth more than what you charge for it. I will be buying my next swords and other products from BUD K.
Got exactly what I paid for...light, fast, and very sturdy, the sheath was a good one, it fit me perfect and I weigh 160lbs thanks true swords
This is a fantastic sword! No, one shouldn't walk right out and start chopping tree limbs because that isn't what it is designed for. The fact that the blade is hollow ground detracts from the potential of the design and makes it primarily a stabbing design but light targets such as water bottles or wet newspapers should be no problem. I used the back strap with ease and I am 6'1 195. The wrap is a weak spot but i have yet to work it loose and I do use it with full swings no problem. The tsuba is tight and I like the kanji on the blade. One must be cautious with the sheath and mine came open on the mune side but i just use that to remind me how the blade is oriented. The hollow ground design would get stuck in bone but for quick slashing and stabbing this thing can't be beat as it is a very quick and agile design.
The chopper sword is very nice when i first got it i didn't expect what i got the blade was very sharp and sturdy only 1 complaint the blade wasn't perfectly straight but for me i don't care about that plus it is barely noticeable it was great buy and i recommend to anyone.
this sword is awesome it was only 13$ and it works great. i used it to cut tree limbs 3in thick and the blade has not broken or dulled. the wrapping comes undone but can be easily fixed and is great for chopping fruit, i feel like a fruit ninja, this sword was a great buy over all thank you BUDK :)
I ordered this sword and some other things and tested it out on the long box it came in and was surprised to see how sharp it was. I held it up vertical and the blade just penetrated the card board with little force. A very useful tool. The only thing Im a little disappointed in is the nylon sheath it came it was already open on one side, but nothing a little sewing cant fix.
I bought one and loved it so much I decided to take advantage of the penny shipping 48 hours and bought another one. I most certainly recommend this sword for the zombies. It's strong, light weight, and has a good flow to it as it moves.
Got the sword for my woman. Very well put together for such a low price. Super fine point, so do not use around children and try not to hurt yourself. The only problem is that the sheath is crap. The stitching on one side split wide open and the strap is too small to put over anything that isn't a small child or anorexic person. The sword itself is perfect.
Ok well I just got this sword today . It is really nice! I cut through tree branches like butter. It actually cuts better then my carbom steel katana . But the handle wrap is pretty bad and the sheathe falls apart real easily. So I give it a 5 but it does need work! I recommend it to anyone!
This blade can take a beating... I am very hard on my toys.. erm... swords, and this has lasted for me. Very light yet durable. Good thickness to the blade.
Excellent buy, very sharp blade and the sword looks great! I really like it and that huge for me because I'm a knife/sword collector of 39 years. Alot of bang for the buck the sheath is decent and works well, only sword I've seen for under 10$ that has a guard.
Handel needs some work. I wrapped mine in sticky black tape. I have had this about a year and like it very much. It cuts better than my forged steel katana.
Nice Sword, Light, short great for CQC, nice gard. Side Note:TrueSwords you need to pair it with a nicer sheath.
Great Sword, solid built, I use it more like a machete and it works great. It comes pretty sharp but after I sharpened it a bit with my sharpener its now super sharp. The nylon sheath is not so hot but does the job, I did a little modification to it and its a little more sturdy but it also came unstitched a bit(not a big deal). I actually bought another one after I received the first one I ordered, so now I have two! Great price and you should definitely buy one or two for yourself!!! Thanks again BUDK!!!!
I bought this sword a little over a month ago. I've got to say the blade has a nice firm feel to it. Mine came pretty sharp but i still ran it through the carbide sharpener a few times. I only have one complaint with this piece: the handle. Its solid steel of course, but there are too loose chocks of wood on either side of the handle. Also, the cord wrapping is very loose and shifts after about two good swings. My fix for this: JB weld the wood pieces to the metal of the handle, then place a thin coat of JB Weld on the edges of the handle, then re-wrap the cord before it dries. Overall though, 5 out of 5. now if they would just make one that has about a 25-27 inch blade for under $30
This thing is pretty cool especially for the price, my only complaint is that strap on the sheath is not long enough. The sword could be a couple of inches longer too but overall great deal.
This was my 1st sword purchase. However, I had done some window shopping at the local Asian Market. Most of the swords I saw were ortimental and that was about it. Nothing like this one. The Full tang adds to value in my book. It came with a decent edge, nothing to write home about. This thing is getting sharpened and will become my "grabit" weapon when the ammo runs out. The sword will keep an enemy beyond their arms reach and with an edge will definately take care of the task at hand.
This sword is by far my favorite. It is a little short, but the blade is well balanced and solid. It came razor sharp, and the sheath (although cheap) works well. The iron cross tsuba looks awesome. And on top of all that, it's dirt cheap! Buy it!
The Chopper sword is the first oriental sword I have owned, and I bought it simply because of the price. Buy several of these swords right now, because if you don't, you're missing out on all the fun! Its a compact piece, very lightweight with fantastic balance, and super-duper sharp. My nylon sheath came a little messed up where the blade tie-down goes, but I don't mind. The etchings on the blade are interesting and bring a higher visual value to the piece. The blade is full tang and very comfortable for swinging or short chopping motions. I forsee lots of halved melons in this swords future! Thanks BUDK, this sword is a great idea for everybody!
this is an amazing sword, i love it, its sharp as h***. Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate materials.
very good buy i am going to buy more. blade came with a good edge and with a little sharpening it will be a razor blade. Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate spelling.
really nice short sword though a bitter shorter than i thought it would be. but none the less a great sword razor sharp needle point! man its looks and feels battle ready to me!
This sword is a wonderful piece, with beautiful lines and masterfully made. The size makes it perfect for anyone who prefers short-swords, and the sheath easily slings across your back. The point is needle sharp, so be cautious when you swing, it's easy to cut something with the end and not realize it. The finish is flawless black, and the gold lettering is amazing to look at. The tsuba is a little large for my taste, but it's the same jet black as the rest of the piece. A wonderful sword all in all.<br /><br />The only flaw I found with the order was the sheath. It's easy for the point to cut the thin stitching when you slide the blade in, but some glue or a heavier thread can take care of that. The sheath also has a sliding buckle on the strip of nylon that you use to wear the sheath. Be careful with that buckle, it's rather small and looks a bit frail. The sheath it's self is pretty sturdy, with a plether lining inside the nylon for the edge. Take out the thin plastic sleeve as soon as you get this though, it's aggravating to try and get that out once it's all bunched up in the bottom of the sheath.<br /><br />5 out of 5 for the sword, and a 4 out of 5 for the sheath. A good buy if you like short-swords!
it is a beautiful everything is fine except the sheath is coming apart bad stitching but i can fix that with some glue the sword is marvelous
Good sword, but the handle wrapping came off after an hour of use.
Response: We would like to apologize for this inconvenience. We would be more than happy to send you out a replacement or a refund, if you would like that please contact customer service at 866-246-7164 we can get that taken care of for you.
The sword is awesom I chopped through 4 kickstart cans in one hit it bent a little bit when I used plastic bottles but and easy fix I would recommend this to any one who want to survive the z apocalypse
I bought this sword about a year ago when it came the blade was sharp but the cord wrapping was messed up. easy fix I just wrapped it with more cord. I did buy another sword and the handle was fine. Did not see and wields on the blade but the blade is full tang. Will take a better look at the blade. Great sword for the price.
its a nice sword not extremely durable but will get the job done i do recommend the product for the price it is offered for plus it comes pretty sharp
This sword isn't very bad for the price. Yes the handle is bad, but I've had it for maybe 4 months and its only a bit loose. As for the blade, it is pretty sharp, you can cut an apple clean in halfâ€¦i did it 4 times in a row. If you want a screw around sword without spending much, this is a good buy. As for the Japanese on the blade. I had my friend translate it for me, and the writing says "Be brave with Honor". Don't know about you guys, but it was killing me to know what it said. Now that i know, I'm much happier with it.
I love the sword so fr, nothing wrong with it, it was a little shorter then i imagined but that ok that only means im gonna buy another one for my other hand :D, the only thing i want to know is what the Chinese or Japanese writing on the side says (translated to English) if you can help with this Thanks in advance, if not oh well Thanks anyway! Happy Hunting!
Got two of these during the recent BOGO sale. I highly recommend ordering these during a BOGO because the quality can be iffy. One I got has a perfectly straight blade and one has a bent blade, not too noticeable, but definetely curved. Both I received have bent handles. I assume this is due to the welds some have mentioned. The weld connects the handle to the blade just below the tsuba where the wrap begins. I wish they were truly full-tang without the welds. Budk off
HI everyone! It strikes me as strange and a bit funny that the bad reviews are because someone actually thought the name meant the sword is meant to chop things like logs. Of course its going to bend and break silly folks. The name MEANS CHOPPER like in MOTORCYCLE CHOPPER not to chop with. If you buy thins remember the price and remember it is a blade similar to a tanto in other words meant for stabbing or defense with thrusting not to chop down the tree in the back yard. Buy and axe if that's your goal folks . For the money this is a great sword. Now that its BOBO with free shipping for this special Thanksgiving time its even more affordable and you get two so if you want you could waste one chopping stuff and use the other as its intended. That might make everyone happy??? lol Happy Thanksgiving to the whole world and not just the good ole US of A!!!
Its not a bad sword. Good speed and handle to it. The sheathe is REAAAALY cheap but the sword is sharp out of the box.. All in all, good product. Not disappointed at all! :D
This sword is well made, cant beat the price for a full tang sword like this. I got this on sale for $10 with free shipping! I bought 20ft of black para-cord for a couple bucks and wrapped it over the existing handle wrap. The original wrap is to thin for complete comfort, so definitely would suggest wrapping it with something durable and comfortable. Now I have a great full tang sword with 20ft of para-cord in case I need it for who knows! Great buy, would recommend.
I love obtaining full tang equipment for safety and utilitarian purposes. Because screw in handles are a product of a false economy, plus one hit and they are done. Full Tang only can ensure a piece of equipment is going to be able to use over and over again. As far as using my new Chopper, no provoking has occured to have to use this wonderful piece of craftsmanship,YET! THANK YOU BK !!!!
this is an awesome looking sword....its lightweight so its easy to manouver and swing.....does really chop and it came sharp but could use a little tweeking ..........i don't use this for chopping anything hard so its a lot of fun and love the feel of it.....i also like the size...........another budk hit for me.......
This was a very nice sword! It's a nice sharp sword and a very good length . I bought it on $10 Tuesday but to my surprise only ended up paying $7. I really wish I had gotten two.
ordered several of these, came razor sharp, more than worth the price, if u dont like the handle wrap it in hockey stick tape, otherwise, it will go thru a home invader easily, if u want a sword then ante up, n if u have nothing better to do than chop soda cans then go find a job or donate ur time 2 fixin up some elderly lady's house in ur neighborhood, nuff said.
This is a great sword for the money. Light, strong and sharp. Beautifully made. Look up soda samurai on you tube and you will see what it can do. Definitely worth the 12 dollars.
good sword. point is sharp rest of it needs to be sharpened. i dont know how much i trust it feels a little fragile. but weight feels right.
The blade was straight and unblemished, but IT IS NOT FULL TANG. The blade is tack-welded to the another piece of metal just past the Tsuba. Tack welds won't hold under stress, so if you wanna chop stuff take it to a welder and have them make it solid, or buy a more exspensive sword. I re-welded mine, made an oak handle & Saya that disguise it as a cane then had the blade professionally sharpened. IT CUTS NICELY AND HOLDS AN EDGE. Have chopped through 2x4's and straw bails. Cut a watermelon cleanly. So not bad. I just wanted it for the blade.
A great sword for under 15 bucks. The quality far exceeds the price. Sturdy and sharp. Look up soda samurai on you tube to see the great fun you can have with this beauty. I highly recommend this sword.
Of the three swords I bought only this one had a sharp edge to the blade. Judging by looks alone I would give this a 3 to 4 star out of 5. I have no idea about it's durability. I really like the look and feel of this sword. I'm sure my son will be pleased. The handle is wrapped nicely and feels good, but the cord covering the handle looks to be covering what is simply black electrical tape? Hey for $10.00 what the heck huh? The blade is very sharp and the point is deadly. I'd recommend it.
got this for my girlfriend for her first sword she loves it. but the case aint great and the handle isant made well but it should last long if treated good
Pros: 1) sharp blade; 2) useful tsuba (handguard) on such an inexpensive sword; 3) low price; and 4) full-tang (even if it is TIG-welded.) Cons: 1) handle-wrapping is loose, horrible and virtually unusable as-is; 2) sheath is sewn on the blade-bearing edges, allowing the blade to cut-through the seams and expose the blade; and 3) sharp edges on the tsuba (handguard) that must be smoothed before serious use of the sword. I fixed these issues by: 1) re-wrapping the handle from scratch using a traditional-cord underwrap, covered by paracord wrapped in the traditional style; 2) smoothed sharp edges on tsuba with a bastard file; 3) reinforced stitched-edges of the sheath with multiple layers of aluminum ducting tape (NOT "duct tape"), and then covered that in a nice combo of digital camo and black "duct tape". After all that work, which consumed an afternoon, this sword is a really nice little number!
I bought two of these for my son and I to use for de-limbing scrub trees before we cut them down with the chainsaw. (A bit of fun while we work.)
pretty good sword for fruit slicing, or water filled Milk Cartons. Very Fine point, Sturdy Tsuba, although the handle wasn't wrapped well & the sheath soon made it dangerous to wear as the sword went right through the unfortified sheath, I think it was a good buy
this blade is simply amazing but the sheath sucks but u can fix it i give the sword a 11 out of 10 the sheath a 1 out of 10
This sword was pretty great overall the only reason I give it 4 stars is due to the fact that the handle portion of the sword, although it is steel, it's a separate piece of steel that is welded onto the blade portion. Other than that I am very satisfied with the sword it's razor sharp, and it has yet to break no matter how mean I am to it. I would definitely recommend this especially since the price is so great. Also, the sheath is poop its sewn together on the inside so the blade cuts it when inserted, and the cord handle does come undone(since when don't cord handles come undone) but it's an easy fix.
I purchased two of these swords just for the heck of it and i must say that i enjoy slicing things with them. I was picturing these swords to be a bit bigger .. but hey they're swords! and for a great price. The body of the sword consists of two parts. the handle and blade. the handle is a 3.1 mm thick of metal with a slab of wood on each side for comfort. The metal part of the handle was soldered to the metal of the blade. This isn't necessarily full tang.. but its still strong. I wouldn't recommend trying to slice anything thicker or harder than a 1cm by 1cm piece of wood. This sword is a great purchase! Thanks BUDK, I will be buying more from you soon!
i just got this sword. it is a little dull on the blade but the point is real sharp. the sheath it shit i have already broke it.
Got this from a list of mixing BOGO items so wouldn't have been a regular choice. This is my first not good review for BK but I'm always truthful. This is either a cheap looking display piece or a toy. It's always near as a last resort but you are gonna have to hack for 30min to do damage. Nylon sheath is cheap. Just not the best quality. But hey guys and girls, you just got a $13 sword that can work for defense if needed (last resort!!!!). I made it sound horrible but the truth is, for $13 it is neat to have and play with. Silver linings!!!!!! Not good, not totally bad. Be mindful this is not a full size Samurai sword so read dimensions. Actually the size makes it easier and more maneuverable. Hey, this might be just the thing for you.
I'm pretty disappointed in this, but I should have known better. To call this thing a sword is to say a toothpick is a pocket knife. It's little more then a cut piece of metal sharpened with an edge. An edge which is decently sharpened. Which was good. If you want something cheap to have simple fun with this isn't a bad purchase, but it's a bit pricey, it says sudgested retail is 15 where budk's price is 17, marked down to 13. I think ten dollars is an okay asking price and worth getting on a sale off that. But hey, i paid 20 dollars for a foam nerf sword so, i don't regret paying 13 all that much. I wouldn't suggest this sword but it can cut well enough.
The blade on this sword is pretty bad**s for the price, but the sheath FAILS miserably. I have purchased several and have had to glue the seams of the sheath because they come apart. Didn't mind doing the extra work and was a great deal before the price increase.
Holds and edge well, and feels comfortable in the hand. My only complain is that the blade needs to be thicker. Other than the blade being thin, it is a decent buy for the money.
I bought this sword when it was only $10.00 with no shipping cost. For the money, it was worth it, although I wouldn't have wanted to pay any more for it.
it is a good sword however it isnt as sharp as the video says it can only sometimes chop soda cans in half! if you are looking for a just fun sword to chop down tree braches however it is pretty darn fun
a nice sharp blade and looks good but not for cutting stuff at all, to flimsy and hand wrapping comes off VERY easy. also the case its very cheaply made....not a bad show case sword though......
The sword itself was alright I mainly just expected more a good blade but very light also the sheath was easily ripped but that can be fixed also the engraving was barely visible over all I'm fine with this purchase but I wouldn't buy it again
It is a good sword it came straight and for the most part without a flaw but i cut one small water bottle with it and the sword is already out of line plus it is not full tang the hilt wrapping is coming undone after 2 weeks of sparse swinging and the sheath was VERY low quality but for the price this is an ok sword
Lets start with the PROs; this sword is dirt cheep and come sharp right out of the box. Its hand wraps around the grip are very securely fastened. The tsuba is actually part of the sword so you dont need to worry about it coming loose. As for the CONs; This blade is way to thin if your thinking about chopping through trees/bushes that have the same circumference as a half dollar coin, it probably would work on zombies but not in a couple swings. The scabbard falls apart from sheathing and unsheathing without great care. OVERALL; this is a good sword for its price. The blade may start to bend after continuous use but its still a good blade.
I bought the sword and was amazed by how sharp and sturdy it was, but after a while the wrapping on the hilt came off to expose some wood chunks as the handle over a very crappy welded piece of metal, over this is a good sword, It'd be perfect if the hilt was solid as well.
Pretty good sword for looks, but the handle kept coming unwrapped. And then I use it for one thing and the handle breaks off of the blade. So now I just have a 10 dollar thing of scrap metal. But hey, what do you expect for $10?
It was pretty good at first i cut cans which was fun but after that i didnt use it much. one day me and my friend decided to go to the woods. i couldnt find a machete so i decided to use the sword it was ok at first then when i hit a branch like 2 inches thick i hit it once the second time i hit it the blade just fell right off the handle. then i noticed it was welded together under the guard. the only reason its 2 stars is because it was fun using it to hit cans.
This was a nice sword at first but then as i played around with it a bit it got weaker. I was chopping some water bottle's with when i set it on the ground. When I picked it up again i grabbed the handle and only the handle came up with it! The handle snapped right off of the blade right beloew the hand guard. Fun at first but next time I won't let a budget get in my way.
The sword is made from two pieces of metal the blade is Stainless Steel. the handle is carbon steel. They are joined just behind the guard. The problem is that there are only two dots of weld (3/16" diameter at most) holding the two pieces of metal together. The seam between the two pieces of metal is about 1.25" long, welding this up made a big difference in strength. Also, the entire portion behind the wrapping of the handle is hollow (not full tang), the metal only goes around the edge. two thin pieces of wood cover the hole before the wrap is placed on. If you have the ability to weld, build yourself a better handle. The stainless blade portion itself is nice and fairly sharp.
Well this is the first time I had ever bought a sword and it did not impress me what so ever. I could go to my local hard ware store and make this my self. I should of known for what the price was for it. Ofcourse I didn't think I was going to get a high quality sword for the 15 or 20 I paid. This sword is shorter than I ever thought a sword would be, the handle is flat with just some para cord wrapping around it. The design isn't bad. That part is pretty cool. Now it is desently sharp and will cut fairly well ( for now ). I really don't imagine this item lasting very long after some use. But I guess for the price that's what ya get. This item to me is just something to play with for awhile if not just something to put on display for something cool to look at. I wouldn't recommend this unless your looking for something to experiment cutting things with.
Pretty good full tang sword but the handle wrap disappointed my brother and me its just a black trash bag and some cheap cord so of course even just holding it and doing a chopping motion made it start to get loose and even start to come off with in days. Made my brothers into a spear on bamboo.
This is a cheap sword, low quality, about what I expected. It is not truly "full-tang" as when unwrapped, the handle is connected to the blade by 3 spot-welds and is mostly skeletonized. I can TIG-weld it and correct this flaw and make a new casing for the handle. Otherwise, it's halfway decent. You get what you pay for...
It was an amazing sword while it lasted, came razor sharp right out of the box. It ended up breaking at the handle in mid-swing, could of hurt someone.
I bought this a year ago. Used it to chop very light brush. The Full tang is welded? And not worth a dang. It broke. Total crap.
this sword is garbage, very poor in quality, only good for looks, VERY DISPLEASED!!.. DONT BUY THIS!
this is horrible. It broke in one hit when i hit a peice of wood softly. I would not recomend this to anybody. Don't buy this.
Well... it was a fun sword when I first got it, it looked cool, and was sharp enough. The first bad thing that happened was that the strap for the sheath broke when I was wearing it, the sword fell onto the kitchen floor. Then, the handle broke off, and flew several feet, dont mean to sound like an old granny, but it could have been dangerous. DISAPOINTING
I just purchased 2 of these swords and I have to say they look great. On the other hand if you want a sturdy solid sword that can take a beating this is not what you are looking for. 5 minutes on a pine practice log and the weld dismounted from the blade sending it across the room, which gives the sharp blade a dangerous downside. Also has as (or should i say "had") a weak hand wrap. If you want a nice wall ornament then by all means go for it. If you are looking for something to play around with, I would NOT recommend this sword. Once again NOT recommend this sword.
