This full-tang sword features a 440 stainless steel blade with a heat-treated finish and a hand-sharpened edge for ultimate slicing power. The sleek hardwood handle provides a sure grip and a touch of elegance with the brass-plated pegs. The octagonal tsuba protects your hand from slipping to the blade. A matching scabbard is included to house the blade.
Handle - 11", Blade - 27-1/4", Scabbard - 29-1/4". You can't beat this for $ 35 or even a lot more. Granted, the wooden handles don't fit EXACTLY flush but SO WHAT. You can see that you have a full tang blade and the handles are held on at three points. I hate to call them rivets cause they appear much more rugged. It does say "China" on the blade but what did you expect for $ 35 - something from the top sword makers in Japan? This is the sword that you don't mind swinging around and dinging up cause you can just get another without breaking the bank. Ding up your multi-hundred dollar swords and watch the tears come to your eyes.
This is my favorite cheap sword, GET IT ON SALE IF YOU CAN,, it's light weight but sturdy,like a Saber,,, solid full tang with great hard wood grips, a nice ling handle (11 inches). Ignore the measurements given in the ad,,, The 26 inch blade is a solid 1/8 inch thick, no fuller groove, and it comes with a good hard wood scabbard that one would normally find on a more expensive sword.... This sword it"self is actually 38 and 1/4 inches over all, and 40 and 1/2 in the scabbard. Well built with real brass rivets and a tight guard....all in all a good deal on a working sword you can have fun with. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SWORD...!
Actually a pretty good sword for the money. No blood groove,but sturdy,so the point is workable, slightly curved and the handle is a nice length....It took some grinder disk, sanding disk and sand paper block and leather strap work, but this thing is made from pretty good Stainless Steel, holds a razor sharp edge that can slice the hell out of fruit or flesh. The full tang blade, with real wood handle and actual rivets make this sword a real keeper, and a go to blade for some back yard fun as well as a serious weapon,,good service blade at a nice price here.,I suggest buying two,, one to admire and one to play with.
This would be an excellent deal on a stainless steel sword if the manufacturer wasn't so lazy,,,The edge is completely dull and prepped, I don't have a grinder like one would need to taper this blade for a sharp edge, so a couple of hours of file work is in order here,,,, then AccuSharp tool and lots of sanding block to make this sword have a respectable edge. If you buy this sword, know that it is far from "Battle Ready",, loads of work here to cure this blade......
For a good practice katana you cant beat this one for the price. Durable yet balanced almost perfectly. The longer handle is a little more than what I'm used to but provides nice leverage for that extra boost from the hips. It Seems the more I work with it the more I like it. and all for $40 & some change?... You just can't go wrong with this one. I'm gonna buy a couple more...Not to hard to polish a decent edge on one of these either... I recommend wrapping the handle with rubber insulating tape or a good electrical conduit shrink that will tightly wrap the handle(1½" should do it)....Polish up the edge and it becomes a workhorse for all your melon, straw & water jug & intruder needs....Hope no one gets in the way...Have fun.....I have.
This sword is my very first katana. The blade isnt that sharp but it will still cut you if you dont be carefull. i took it outside and cut a jug full of water and it cut clean through it. My favorite detail is the little samurai head on the saya. Overall its a very nice katana.
This sword is very nice! Has a nice feel to it. Doesn't come very sharp but that's okay. Love the saya. This sword is worth way more than they charge. Got here super fast. Thanks TrueSwords!
This is a great sword for anything you need it for. Very strong blade and confortable handle. This is also a great sword for zombies lol....
The sword is great. This is my first sword and I LOVE IT. It didn't come very sharp and it was shorter than I invisioned but overall GREAT SWORD, GREAT BUY, AND WORTH EVERY PENNY!
A really beautiful sword. The blade looks great. A few smudges when it arrived but a nice cleaning did it some good. Very sturdy even though its a bit heavy but still worth every penny.
This is my first sword (Though Factory produced) and is just perfect. When it came it had a couple marks on the blade that were removed after a good cleaning. The very tip of the blade was slightly bent, but not very noticeable unless you check. I'm not planning on going into battle any time soon but it is still fun practicing forms with it. Over all very good and totally worth it. Thank you Trueswords!
This one really surprised me. For the price I thought it wouldn't be as good as it was! It's truly a different feeling holding this in your hands, then any other in my collection.
Excellent sword. The balance lies just below the tsuba, where you would normally grip(which is technically off), but it's good for practice. It didn't come very sharp at all; however, if you want sharp weapons you should be able to sharpen them yourself. Looks amazing as well. Twas a gift, but I seriously considered keeping it. He has little katana experience, but he's not very liable to hurt himself badly. Looks great as a display too. And it's only $35, so you aren't out much if you hurt it.<br /><br />All in all, this sword delivers on every level; very functional(really, I'd easily pay 80+ for it), very decorative, and very cheap.
Great sword. New to katanas? get this sword then, it is perfect for experts and beginners alike, just sharp enough, not razor nor dull. amazing overall.
I ordered this sword on Tues and received it on Thurs. That alone is commendable. Dispite the reviews stating that the sword is dull or flimsy, I was very satisfied considering the cost. The blade is sharp enough to cut and the blade is definitely not flimsey. Could the blade be sharper? Sure and you definitely have something to work with. Other swords come completely dull and take forever to work. My only complaint with this sword is that my hilt (handle) was slightly uneven. This may cause problems later on. But other than that the sword is great and feels nice and balanced. My next sword before going on into the expensive swords will be the 52" Bleach sword.
really cool looks and feels like real deal wish it was a little sharper but if you work on it it will get an edge
Everything said about Trueswords is correct. Fast shipping, good/safe packaging, and good customer interaction are all spot on.<br />Sword is a great value for a beater sword. It did not arrive sharp but is now. We'll see how the edge holds up as a beater. <br />5 out of 5
Sweet this should go great with a straight wakizashi i found in st augustine, though its a bit of a mystery its a battle rdy, edge'd with a similar handle to this blade(which i really favor by the way) it has a circle with a three bladed shuriken on the scabbard theres somthing written on the blade (naturally i cant read it) the crossgaurd is unadorned black, seems to be metal with a red handle? the sword is like i said a straight battle rdy ninja seeming wakizashi primary colours seem to be black and gold save for the handle with somthing written on the left side of the blade could someone identify this sword for me?! And the sword of war is awsome!!
My second order from Trueswords.com and as with the first time quick shipping. I ordered on the 21st of dec and got it today on the 2nd of january so thats prett good consdiering I'm all way in washington and that was with most of the roads snowed in.<br /><br />AS for the sword itself I'm very happy with it. it's my first Katana so I'm not an expert on them but I do own a few other swords sso i knwo a fair bit about swords in general. <br /><br />It has a good weight and when I work wiht it it just seems to flow like an extention of my arms. The blade stayed secure even after an hour of exerciseing with it even though it isn't very sharp but thats fine because I wont be cutting anything with it at all.<br /><br />The only dificutly is that the bottom section were the blade is secured is minorly dificult to put in the scabbard but I still give it five out of five stars. I'll be ordering from here agian I'm sure.
I love it! its my first sword ever! i agree this sword is not sharp!<br />the blade could have been longer but i love it!!!
this was my first full tang katana.it wasnt that sharp but it is now. it looks kool and isnt that heavy but these gold thing fell off.i hot glued 1 on but the othere got lost.over all its good
This sword is very, very cool, if you want to get a nice sword that wont break your budget and will last for a long time get this sword, it only costs 34.99 but as fare as how well it is made I would say it is just as good if not better than the black ninja Koga sword for more than twice the amount of money, not that Iâ€™m knocking that sword because it is awesome too, bottom line very good full tang sword and if your thinking of getting a sword I would get this one.
This sword is amazing!!!!!! It's an incredible value for $35. Very sturdy, very well-made, truly a beautiful sword.
This was my first purchase from Trueswords, and I have to say that I'm very pleased with this katana, it is perfect for me. It is fairly sharp, very durable and sturdy, and I'd recommend this katana or any similar to this brand for anyone who wants an incredible sword.
I love this sword. I have been collecting for awhile now and I decided to finally get a full tang katana. But there was two guide lines for the one I was looking for. I did not want to spend a lot of money and it had to have a wood handle. This sword was perfect for what I was looking for. For $35 you can not get a better sword. I have a friend who is a martial artist ( black belt) and is trained in the use of a katana and he could not believe I only paid $35 for it.
Excellent sword for a begginer collector the blades not to sharp but that can be ficed but aa warning the sheath is not that great the gold fittings fall of easy so i would advise you to hot glue them to the sheath but all in all a superb blade to start with or just add to your collection and the handle is very sturdy for a wooden piece i give it a 5 star BUY IT!!!<br /> <br /><br /> ///Austin///
This sword is awesome! Its a good length and is very light and durable. Its not very sharp but it looks great. Low price. Great buy!
The blade is full tang but the tsuba is rattly and the rivets aren't tight so the handle shakes. The brass accents are real brass, not the stuff they strip mine down in Texas. nice for a blade hammered out of a truck spring in Pakistan. overall good for the price
Five stars for sturdy - was hoping for an edge though and the brass accents on the scabbard are plastic (so four stars overall). Very good low-priced option. Took a chance and bought one before any reviews were added. Nice 440 SS blade and the feel is great. Have to work up an edge and she'll be a keeper.
Awesome sword. Well built, high quality and just plain beautiful. The only downside is that it came almost completely dull, though that isn't too much of a problem for my sharpener. Definitely recommend it.
Just got my sword today its getting 4 out of five cuz my drop point is really low plus theres two bends in my blade where the forger pounded a little hard and the sheath is junk had to fit a cloth inside it so when i pull the blade out it cleans itself of the ply wood chippings and such, other than that great sword for its price very sturdy and good weight to it secure fittings also thxs again truesword
The sword is nice to look at. Bought it for my buddy. But i looked at it and was disapointed but hey its a nice sword for the price. came dull. Havent tested the full tang. I can make it full tang if i break it. So only 3 stars from me.
Awesome sword, great durability and design, strong handle but the sword's scabbard does seem sort of cheaply made, has no effect on the sword itself.
Bought this on Sun. shipped on Mon and arrived on Wed. Pretty fast. It had a nice grip but on the hilt, it has some reddish scratches on it. At the tip of the blade, it was uneven. Now for the blade itself. Wasnt that sharp. I requested that it be sharpen but due to some issue they couldnt. I dont mind it because I will do it myself but I would have prefer it if they send it sharpen. Havent really "tested" it since they say it was "battle ready" but i might later on. Maybe on bamboo. Thats what they are usually tested on in those day back then. 2.5 in to 4 in would be best.
ok. got my sword bout 3 or 4 days ago. im going to give u the good news first and bad news second. but since i gave it 4 satrs theres more good news. --- this is my first sword. when it got here it wasnt very dirty unlike most people said. the minuite i got it i did a cuting test. what is good about it is that its strong so please dont worry bout it breaking your on your first hit. its very sturdy around the handle and does not wobble or shake. this sword is defenetly not used for deceration for all you sword crasies out there like me. there are minor bad things bout the sword that arent very bad. --- not very sharp so before you go using it in practice sharpen it. the blade is flexy and bendable but not breakable. trust me. DO not irepeat DO not. wipe oil or grease off blade with hand it getsa dirty fast and will rust if you do but what sword doesnt do that. overall besides minor details a great sword i recomend it for any begginer who likes to collect wepons and doesnt like to put them to bad use by hanging them up on racks BLAH. but overall great beginner sword. BUY IT
when I first saw this sword, my reaction was one word, "Wow". After buying it, I read the review from Forrest Delikowski, saying that the bladde is extremly bendable, so I had doubts about this sword. When I got it, however, I saw that is was even more beautiful than in the picture, and yes, the blade bends, but only a little. Plus, a more ridgid blade would be more likly to break. However, I would still not recomend it for battle, though, it is pretty sturdy. Makes a great display sword though. Very beautiful.
Overall a pretty good buy. The only problem is the fact that the metal is extremly bendable, i can literally bend the sword by swinging it enough.<br /><br /> Not to mention all the loose pieces that fall off, could be fixed with some gorrilla glue i guess. Not at all to be used for cutting mats, maybe just swinging around if you want to pretend your good at fighting with swords. <br /><br />I did get alot of use out of it, its great for training before stepping up to swords that can actually cut you, and i can for sure say its worth the small price, just don't go out chopping trees or anything with it...
This is a nice looking sword. A steal at 35 bucks. Its really well put together. The blade is semi-sharp at best. This sword is about as full tang as you can get. Its a nice collection piece.
Want a sword? Buy This One! I've had this for a while now and have a few things to say about it. <br /><br />First: NO, FOR THE LAST TIME, IT'S NOT SHARP! WHO CARES!?<br /><br />Second: This thing is a little heavier than most swords I've held, which makes it a bit awkward to swing in my opinion.<br /><br />Third: Though it came in average time, it also came beat up with dents and scratches. It really was the worst delivery I've experienced so far from Trueswords.<br /><br />By now you're probably wondering why after all my complaints I would say "Buy This One!." It is because....<br /><br />First: This thing is FREGGIN beautiful! I've never seen or even less held any sword that was this amazing looking. Parts on the sheath are starting to fade in color though.<br /><br />Second: Incredibly well built. With a full tang and three peg construction, there is NO chance that this thing will fall apart very easily, even under heavy strain.<br /><br />Third: It is inexpensive. You'll seriously be hard pressed to find another sword of this quality (for its price) even on this website, let alone anywhere else.<br /><br />Regardless, I'm still giving this a 4 out of 5 for all the overall mess that the sword arrived in. Hope your's will be different.
My sword just arrived today. I agree with several reviews- THIS SWORD IS NOT SHARP!!!!!!!! But for the price and it being a full tang, its worth it. I just recently started a nice sword collection, and the workmanship is just as good as a high priced musashi sword recently purchased. Also, on the kashira (end of handle), it was scratched and chipped. But again, for the price can't beat it. PS....... Could be sharpened but it is still a high end display, light cutting weapon. Enjoy it....
this is a great sword. i got it extremely quick and it looks great. its also not that sharp and pretty heavy but a great buy for its price.
Great blade for the buy! Everything is solidly put together along with a great blade of 440 stainless steel. The black wooden grip is also quality, and so is the scabboard. I just wish it could of came sharper, but that can be easily changed. If you want a quality sword for the price, invest in the Bushido Samurai Sword of War.
I must say, this is a beautiful sword (and to echo the others) for the price. A few imperfections, loose tsuba, sheath a little shoddy, handle a little scratch from the bottom. However, this is the 31st weapon in my collection and my 16th Japanese sword. And anyone who is a true collector knows that japanese blades are like diamonds, less imperfections...the more expensive. That being said, true swords, I couldn't be happier with my product...a perfect battle-ready practice piece. And if you are reading this wondering if you should...start your collection of right...buy the sword before they raise the price!
A good sword, a decent blade not very sharp... talk about factory dull, though that is easily fixed with a quality sharpening stone. ^^<br />I was a little disappointed that the tsuba is a little unstable and wobbles when the sword is swung, but I can live with that. Good quality saya for the price. Overall 4/5 but definitely worth it for the price. Thanks trueswords.
This swords is great for the price. Not the best because the blade can wobble at times and the sheath can get caught. But if you're just starting out this is for you.
very sturdy sword, very good weight but not sharp at all, i suppose it wasa made to be like that. very good deal.
I have a fairly reasonable collection of swords at all prices. This sword comes full tang and has a fairly strong feeling blade. It came fitted with a good wooden sheath and the ornaments are also good. It does not come sharp as advertised but the 440 blade sharpens well with some effort. I would not use this as a battle ready weapon. Some of the Battle machetes are harder in strength. This makes for a good show sword in the stand.
Good Price,,BUT,,first thing I notice is the wood handle is painted white pine, not real stained hard wood,,, then the blade is seriously DULL...!, and only 38 1/4 inches over all length, not 41 inches as advertised, and the blade is light duty at 1/8 inch thickness...Still a nice looking sword However, the Full Tang Battle Ready Katana for Only $19.99 is by far the best stainless steel battle sword value on this site,,, and the Tactical Wakizashi Honshu 1060 High Carbon Sword for $144.99 is the best value in a carbon steel blade here..... G
I just open up my sword its nice but for a battle ready sword it dull like a butter knife made for it to be a Japanese sword its funny how its made in China love the weight and the way its silent when you swing it its unlike most ive had over the years
Its a nice sword, pointed, not sharp though....definatly not for hitting stuff with. the gold ends for the sheath can come off too easily
