i bought the sword, it came in, in a good amount of time (about a week and 2 days) the sword was very sharp and looked AMAZING aside from the tsuba which idk what it was made of but looked like plastic, so after replacing the oil on the sword i decided to go and slice some water bottles and it went well until I tried cutting through 2 at once where it went through the first one alright and cut through about half of the second one and when I looked at the sword there was bends in the blade! the bends were on the edge where it made the edge almost go down! and the tsuba was also loose and when you tapped on anything lightly with the sword it felt like it would break. basically an amazing looking blade but not made very well at all, sending it back

i think i selected 2 day delivery but it seems like it got here in 1 day so very awesome...absolutely love this piece, just stunning, and sharp. It was exactly what i was expecting, another Masahiro for my collection, now i am just waiting for the Musashi Three Tier Wall Mount to put them on display when im not practicing with them.

This is my first real sword so I don't have a comparison but I really like this sword. It could be a little heavier and longer but it was what i expected. I had a few minutes of fun hacking up the box it came in.

I just purchased this sword and put it through it's paces. It's a very fine katana and extremely sharp.

The steel is well folded, with no major defects in the forging process. (The layers are all tight and there's as little porosity as possible). The balance point of the sword is about 4 inches up from the tsuba and it's relatively light. A very fast cutter and as sharp as it gets.

I'm not sure about the hardness, but it's definitely monotempered. So far it has been able to cut through it's own box, several rolled mats of varying thicknesses and some jugs with no signs of ever being used. (As it should be) The acid bath they give it to darken the folds is only a surface treatment, but has held up very well so far.

Overall I give it a 5/5 for it's price range. Best Katana you can get for the money. It is, however, not the best in the whole world. Great for an entry to light/medium cutting and a lot more attractive than a normal carbon steel katana.

This blade is a beautiful work of art. I never thought I would have a blade of this quality. Every detail is stunning. To top it off it's sharp. Really sharp. It cut throught the box it came in like butter. I almost fell over from the lack of hesitation. Oh and like the other reveiws said, the oil container leaked out, but other than that, this is a must have Item.

It took only three days for it to come. This is by far the most amazing blade I have seen.

Received this sword yesterday after ordering it one week before hand. (from Georgia to Nevada for a time frame reference) Officially, this sword is a light slasher mainly there for looks. Had some fun with cardboard boxes and water bottles. Worked fantastically on those.

STRESS TEST: Tried a 2 inch wide piece of fencing (found it laying around) and went almost all the way through it. No real damage to the blade other than scuff marks. Then proceeded to a 4 inch wide piece, didn't make it nearly as far, as well as bent the blade. I was expecting not to be able to go through, wasn't expecting the bend. Fixed the bend with some padding on top of the blade and a few light and quick strikes of a sledge hammer. Padding to keep the blade from being damaged aesthetically.

The only other downsides than not being able to cut through wood (was only $124.99.. wasn't expecting much) is that the ito wasn't wrapped very well. Came very loose so I re-wrapped it. And there still seems to be a large amount of wax being accumulated on the blade every time I return it to the sheathe. Other than that, I love it. It's slightly heavy and well rounded. Nice and sharp as well.

One more thing that is somewhat important. The oil in the cleaning kit it came with spilled all over everything around the general area that it was placed in the box. (I.e. the tsuka, the sword bag, and the entire cleaning kit itself. Thus rendering the cleaning kit useless except for the small brass hammer. Just give the ito and sword bag a wash though and you should be all good on that though.

I just got this one and the one with the dragon on it. I'm very happy with the swords but not happy with the cleaning kits that came with the swords. The oil in both kits were half filled or gone

I ordered on friday and got it next friday, kinda sad about that. But the sword is really nice, its very sharp, looks nice but the blood groove started to fade a little after i cut some water bottles, but it still looks nice. i had to clean it a little because the inside of the sheath is like coated in something. But other than that its really nice and i would recommend it for anyone. Trueswords is nice and imma probly buy some more things sooner or later. So i give 5 out of 5 for sword but 2 out of 5 for shipping

The Picture really doesn't compare, It's beautiful, feels great in your hand, and AMAZING. Shipping was great, sword bag is very nice.

Only Issue is trying to get the handle off to clean under it, the pegs come out, but then the handle does not slide off very easily.

All i can say us amazing, absolutly amazing. Fast shipping (as always) and the beauty of this blade is outstanding. The blade already comes suprisingly sharp, cut threw the cardboard box it came in with ease, and about an hour and a half of cutting 2L bottles of water and it cut through them like they weren't even there lol. All and all im extreamly satisfied with my new sword. Heres to u Masahiro and True Swords you have exceeded my very highest expectations!

I don't know what to say. It rocks. Never thought I would get a sword of this quality for this price. This sword is solid. It just feels great in your hands and the blade is very sharp right out of the box. I fell in love the moment I swag it. Some swords look nice but when you pick them up you know its a fancy toy. THIS IS NOT A TOY. It looks amazing in the box and when you hold it you instantly feel respect for the weapon. If the world ever ends you want a gun and this bad boy on your waist. Oh and shipping was super fast. Ordered on Sunday arrived Tuesday.

just plain amazing every detail is stunning . the blade is perfect, cuts so clean it can compete with a scapel. even tho the scapel would lose by a mile. sturdiness i give it a 10 out of 5 ,it has a nice solid feel when you swing it . when i removed it from the cardbord packing , i used the sword to cut the cardboard down to size so it would fit in my recycling bin .... pure fun having a friend toss the boxes as you disassemble them in mid-air like an anime
