"Masahiro" It clearly says ten ryu on the tag attached to the hilt and the box.
"this finish is forever fixed to the blade" more like copper rustoleum. My blade was un-oiled and one gentle swipe of paper towel rubbed off the copper coating. switched to toilet paper to oil it. Still dragged enough reddish black stuff to reveal that the coating is just a cut away from disappearing.
However, swift and good package arrival and protection and the inscription was correct.
Well this sword definitely exceeded all expectations I set up for it! The blade is an amazing color, the edge is almost razor sharp, and it's wrapping is near flawless. I'm not sure why other reviewers are having an issue with the pegs though, I'm able to disassemble the blade effortlessly. All in all, definitely a purchase I recommend!
I ordered this right before new year's. An all around great sword. The coating on the blade look more cooper than the blood red color I was expecting, but still very cool. Probably isn't going to be my first choice of blades to use, but that is mostly because I want to save the blade color.
Although I have to pick apart a few of other people's reviews. To those complaining about the color being permanent, it is much like the paint on a car. The paint is charged to stick to the metal of the car. The paint doesn't simply fall of a car, and it doesn't here either. However, if you grind away the steel, then you are exposing steel that hasn't been treated with the coating.
And the people complaining abut "crooked" pegs, just calm down. Most swords have angled pegs. This gives the sword a stronger structure. I've never owned or seen a sword with pegs that are perpendicular to the hilt. I have no trouble removing the pegs, although I still haven't been able to remove the blade, but it isn't because of the pegs being stuck.
Since I am the first reviwer. AND I am NO sword expert nor claimn to be. I had high hope this sword would be the red gem in my collectio. However, I have to leave it in the scarrab because of several nic's on the edge and scraps on the sides of the blade. The scarrab and the wrapping are AWESOME but the most important part (the blade) is the worst part. Maybe this is the only one that is like this, but i got it. Now, I have bought many items from Budk and have been happy with most of those items, and probably will continue to buy from Budk, but when it comes to show pieces i will spend the extra $50-100 on a web site that sell's real show pieces. The old saying You get what you paid for comes to mind. The sword seems like it might do work more than show. the copper color comes right off with simple cuts (card board). OH well, I will keep looking.
Got my sword in the mail, fast delivery. Unwrapped it for christmas, was excited for a long lasting friendship. Upon maintenance the pins were aligned crooked and will not get out no matter how hard I try to get them out. This is disappointing because I was expecting a quality sword to own for a lifetime instead of one I can't disassemble. Besides that it was nice and oiled upon getting it out of the box. Although not razor sharp, can cut through water bottles, and is great for stand-alone practice. 2/5, Next time the sword maker should check to see if the sword is quality.
I just had a whirl with my sword and am at the moment satisfied, however I am having trouble getting the pegs out and they seem to be in really tight and seemingly crooked.
I bought this sword a few years back, and while it has held up well enough, one thing to this day that annoys me is that its tip came with this wierd poorly defined edge. To this day even with years of regular sharpening, the thick dull edge of the tip is to wide to get sharp. Its lack of even sharpness the full length of the blade and the odd deformity eventually had me take it apart and just leave the blade in its sheath to show as an oddity now and then. Ive never bought another blade from this forge, though swords bought at true swords of the musashi/musha brand often at a lower price point have proved so reliable Ive bought several over the years to give as gifts to those starting to collect or practice cutting.
this literally became my favorite blade that i currently own. anyone thats looking for a sword with that perfect feel to it, i strongly recommend this sword. it looks fantastic it feels fantastic, i give 5 out of 5..
Perfect i absolutely love this sword came exactly like picture but to be honest it still doesn't do it justice the beauty of this sword is astonishing had me breathless when i opened the box had quiet a bit of oil on it as expected but I'm not complaining rather have that then see rust if i could give it more stars i would and I've read some of the other reviews saying it had China on the blade i inspected it thoroughly and found no such thing with the buy never seen another katana like this MUST BUY for any collector.
The information is wrong about the anodized color staying forever. I stuck the sword into the ground and now the tip is silver.----True Swords reply:At the first mention of any concern we have contacted our customer to ensure their order experience is a positive one and that any matters are well resolved.

The finish does not rub off, however if you remove the steel which holds the finish then you would expose the steel underneath.

Beautiful Sword. Definitely worth the buy for any sword collector for the price that It's being offered at.The only problem I had was that the KURIKATA (Knob) was broken. I don't know if the whole piece split while shipping or if they just overlooked that small detail when packaging. It's impossible to tell. Just apply some glue, let it sit and problem solved so no big deal.
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!!! the color on my blabe matches pretty close kinda orange copper look on it BEAUTIFUL BLADE the handle is very nice and ferm the faox leather wrap is amazing fealling in the hands i love it the gold in the handle are plastic like but dont look like it and i dont mind. the fill thing is tightly together very nice. the only down thing i can say is the katana into the sheath really tight and kinda hard to pull out. but there is a and this may be big to some one so THERE IS A WHITE CHINA ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BLADE. but case is amazing very nice stand is good in all id say very wearth it.
This sword is amazing the blade is great quality. The leather tsuka is a great quality that this sword has and is tied very tightly. The blade is Copper colored not red when you actually get it so the picture can be misleading. The blade is great quality and is a blade that will last very long with proper sword care.
this is a very beautiful sword and i have no complaints, aside from CHINA written on part of the blade like other people have stated, and the stand that came in the box is very poor quality. the box itself is very nice, but one of the 2 clasps is missing but that fine.
Looks nicer in person beautiful blade
when i got this katana i was very pleased. the handle was perfectly on the handle and it was the sturdiest katana i have ever bought. the only thing wrong was when you shine it in the light you can see rust and when you dont shine it in the light the rust looks blackish but i think it was a good katana for the price
this thing is awsome but mine had orange stripes aling the blade but you can only see them in bright light and they give it a kinda tiger look wich i love. only thing wrong with it is the box came with the bottome almost compleatly ripped out otherwise 5/5
I hate to say it but: display peice.For this price, it is one hell of a display peice. I mean that in the best way possible.The finish on this sword is flawless except for CHINA placed on the blade near the guard. The leather on the handle is excellent quality and wrapped very tight. It has a great performance weight which is where it becomes deceiving.Upon sharpening thissword you will realize that its finish is far from permanent.The box for storage is great, the sword bag is great, the stand it comes with is a little tight but it works. Honestly its an over all great display peice, and if you want a real eye catcher then by all means grab it.IF however you are an advocate of any art of martial standing involving a blade of any sort and you (like any true swords man) want your weapon sharp enough to scar the air then you maay want to look for a different sword.2/5 five stars for misleading description. 3/5 for quality of product.----True Swords reply:At the first mention of any concern we have contacted our customer to ensure their order experience is a positive one and that any matters are well resolved.

Everything is good about this sword. The blade has a nice color. The handle has tight wrappings. The blade is sharp. I recommend this sword to anyone who thinks this is a great buy. Thanks True Swords.
I bought this as a gift for a friend, he was amazed just by the look of it, but after he drew it, his jaw hit the floor! Its a very well made piece for the $100 range. The leather wrapping is well done, and tsuba is solid, and the blade is thick, strong, and sharp. Not to mention they throw in the box, bag, and stand as well! The blade is indeed red, but changes from brick red to sunshine gold depending on what kind of light is hitting it. Hold it out in the first sunlight at dawn and you will see something beautiful.
