This sword is amazing beautiful blade and study I am externally pleased with this punches the only down side was it didn't come sharp, but that can be fixed
This sword is one I bought for a friend of mine. It is absolutely gorgeous and I will have trouble letting it go. It is very sharp, has a much longer than traditional handle, and a very lightweight feel to it. It is a gorgeous sword and worth twice the price. Thank you Trueswords. 5/5
Unbelievably FAST shipping I ordered Monday morning...it shipped out by Monday afternoon and I had it this morning (Wednesday) by 9 am and all the week before Christmas! Wow! Excellent Customer service - Jonathan was very helpful...and a great product...this sword is BEAUTIFUL! I cannot wait to give it to my nephew for Christmas! Thanks True Swords!
TRUESWORDS I LOVE YOU This was my first purchase and they are true with there words I ordered on a thursday evening and got it on a saturday morning and the sword is even more beautiful in person and longer than i thought not a single flaw I will be buying from here from now on THANK YOU !!! and I recommend this sword and this site to anyone they are the best PERIOD!
It got a good weight to it and a valuable price for anyone that's trying to get this a gift or just starting out with katanas.
I bought this as a gift for my mom and she loved it! This is a great sword and the only problem mine had was a chipped handle. It is a beautiful sword and I'm really glad I got it for her.
First sword purchase from this site. And I feel obligated to say I think I would be hard pressed to find a better buy. Very satisfied. And great shipping. Will for sure be purchasing again in the near future.
Very nice sword, my only complaint is that the nylon on the handle slides, so it makes it hard to hold on to when swinging it
Very nice, this is my first Katana sword. The blade is very nice, came dull, but was easy to sharpen. Tsukka was much shinier than the picture depicts, good construction, and sturdy build. It came with no scratches of defects.
best sword im 13 teen and this is my first katana<br />i just started my sword collection i have my own dojo<br />i have different samurai armors and 51 bb guns and i<br />sell bb guns and this sword arivve on friday january 1,2010 my little brother helps me to he is a pain but is good at making samurai armor and broad swords and he's 11 years old oh! and hilda acevedo is my moom i'm a 13 year old kid cool sword.
hey, this is Dianes son Jacob and this is an awesome sword it is well made, nice length, nicely wrapped. the only problem is that th engraving was kind of faded but i dont think that matters that much.<br />any great buy!!
I am twelve and just starting a sword collection. This is my second sword. It is definitely very good for the price. The katana is shorter than I thought it would be but it is a good length. The intricate details are very nice. It is sturdy and I like how it shows where the grips are by the golden dragons on the handles. Not very sharp at all but that can be easily fixed. The shiny sheath is cool however be careful with the bottom for even though I was handling the product well it got a crack the next morning. All in all a GREAT SWORD. BUY IT.
This is my first sword and i picked a good one. My only complaint is that my scabard had some kind of plastic on the inside, but other than that its a great sword
Beautiful sword.<br /><br />The blade was a little dirty but other than that (which was easily cleaned) it was just simply beautiful. The quality is amazing for 20 bucks. The blade is very nice. Hilt and all is simply wonderful and the carved in characters just work so well over all.<br /><br />Wonderful piece of work, especially for the price. 5/5
this sword just came in a half an hour ago.<br />its a beautiful sword for begginer collecter or a collecter period. the oil kept it nice. the markins are nice and the engraving makes it look best i deffinantly purchase another sword from trueswords. infact i think this will be the only place i will buy from and even get gifts for my friends<br /><br />thank you so much
This sword id fantastic especially for the price. It's strong, durable, beatiful and heavy...it's a true marvel of craftsmanship. This Katana has surpassed all my expectations. Though it's not sharp (which can be fixed can be real fast) it's still a magnificant piece to add to any sword collection whether it be master or novice.
This is one of my favorite swords, i was surpised of the quality because it was so cheap.<br /><br />buy an accu sharp, it took me an hour to make this thing able to cut a water bottle.<br /><br />but its a great buy and well worth the sharpening.
Great sword but thought that it would have a blood groove in the blade itself but all in all great buy as far as I am concerned. Just got it today nice quality.<br /><br />Thanks for reading,<br />M.C. aka Yuukanonibu
My sword should be here any day but looking at all thease reviews it looks like an awsone sword. When it comes I will write.
Perfect in every way but 1....... the inside of the sheath is like covering the sword in something sticky
This Katana was something that my son had been wanting for a number of months. I ordered it for him as the price was so reasonable. Boy was I supprised! This Katana has really good details and we were very pleased with the quality and with the delivery time. My son was thrilled of course:-) Thanks for the very pleasant experience!
this is the best starter sword i could have wished for!<br /><br />i need to glue back on the end of the sheath, but overall what u get for the 20 $ should be 100 $<br /><br />great sword, i would reccomend it to anyone!
Yep, 5 stars......the blade has "china" on the opposite side of the blade where the kanji is at. The sword is light, sturdy, well made, and the wrapping on the handel is good as well. the edge of the blade is factory sharpened so it's not exactly "through flesh and bone" quality as far as cutting strength. A sharpener should be considered as an add-on with your purchase if you want a SHARP! blade. Overall, looks great and it's a good buy for 19.99, i'm very happy with what I got and will come again!.
Amazing Fast Delivery. I order this sword on Thursday afternoon and got it on Saturday morning!!!! The quality, Amazing and for the<br />price is a steal, worth more then $20 Bucks
This sword is well worth the price. It is put together nicely and doesnt rattle or anything when swung hard. The only bad part is the brass ends on the sheath, which fell off, and the brass ornaments in the handle, which I had to remove. I am really glad I made this purchase.
i really love this sword, its great value for only 19.99, its my new favorite, and it got here on the correct day, im really happy with it
i was truly impressed when i got the sword today at 3 oclock the only bad thing was the strap was non glued on good but over all i love it
This sword is FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, except it is hard to get out of hte sheath. Good price for a good quality!
Wow just is one of millions of words that could explane how great this sword is. $19.99 just seems as a price of a crappy sword, but don't let that fool you!! This sword is firm no wiggling at all, the hilt is wrapped to stay, the only problem is the gold dragons under it, but you get used to it. Next the blade is beautiful, but not sharp at all. Over all this sword is great for training and i would not use it for sparing.
This blade is awesome! It is just the right lenghth and balance; but only one thing though, it isnt very sharp at first so u should have a sharpener handy if u want to have it for other purposes than display. While I am here I would also like to praise the Rurouni Kenshin reverse blade sword. my girlfriend recently ordered it and it also is of excellent quality.
Good sword but dull. After sharpening it is better though. Sword came out of sheath dirty. Also sheath has a Crack in it. Besides all that I will thoroughly enjoy myself.
Just got mine yesterday, right on schedule. It arrived in great condition, and though the saya isn't entirely as pictured, I am still very satisfied with my purchase. Potential buyers should know that it comes somewhat dull, so you may have to sharpen it yourself if you expect it to cut anything. All in all though, it's a nice sword for $25. My only concern is in regards to the engraving; can somebody please translate? I have no idea what it says.
Good looking sword, lots of factory oil when i got it, has some scratches on the sword and came VERY dull. But after cleaning it, it looks way better. Haven't sharpened it yet, plan on doing that later. Overall good buy, especially for the price your playing, great decorative piece.
This sword is beautiful! The artwork is beautiful, and the saya is perfect. But when i got it I noticed a small imperfection in the blade, it curved inward about half an inch, and the curve ran about 2 inches. It was hardly noticeable, and it still fits in the saya. But this renders it useless for Iai-justsu. Which is ok, if I wanted a sword to use seriously, I would have gotten a sword from Musashi or Masahiro.
great sword but the handle is realy long and it is ore heavy than it neds to be but for 20 doallers its nice
good first buy<br />but the end cap came flying off the first time i swung<br />nicks all over the hilt dull
Just got it today. Very good sword, feels good and has a nice weight to it. Only complaint is the sticky stuff in the Saya. Anyone know how to get that gone for good?
Great-looking sword. As splendid in your hands as it looks in the pictures. A good start to my collection!
Beautiful as hell, the engraved kanji has no flaw, and the small added weight by the golden bamboo is balanced with the sword in full, a perfect sword for any collector.<br /><br />only bad thing is the goo in the sheath....<br />hope that goes away....<br />you'll find out....
Great for the price. But yea, the end part of the sheath fell off, and there's a crack in it. But hey! For 20 bucks, who really cares?!
Looks amazing!!!!!! IT IS AMAZING!!!! the only thing is that the cap on the end of the sheath came off when i got it, but i easily hot glued it back on... overall.... for $20 it is an amazing deal!!!
My initial intention for this sword was as a practice piece - it seemed artfully plain in the photos, and at $20, I would not be saddened if I were to break the sword.<br /><br />Imagine my surprise when I received this sword, and discovered that it is of amazing quality. The bamboo motif on the scabbard and grip are beautifully crafted, and the inscribed text on the blade closely matches the words on the sword from Last Samurai. The blade is lovingly forged, and and the only thing that many "authentic" sword enthusiasts will notice is that the handle is wrapped in synthetic materials. <br /><br />However, as a first ownership piece, or even as an understated centerpiece for a collection, this sword is worth much more than its price. An amazing value, that you cannot miss.
This sword is and ok buy but only three things are wrong 1 not sharp but that can be fixed boobs prob 2 the engraving is not very visible 3 the sword is easy to I slip out of the Saya. But its a good starter for a beginner collector.
First off, this is a great sword for the price. It's actually very solid, the blade is not loose in the scabbard or on the haldle. The handguard (I'm not quite sure what that is called) it would be a lot nicer if the gold paint was done a little better on the handguard, it is also sllightly slanted. The handle is a little bigger in person than what appears in the picture (or the blade is'nt as wide) (or a little of both) but I'm guessing that helps with balance, which is very nice. I'd say great sword for display, or as long as your not planning on hitting anything too hard with it. The japanese writing on the blade also stands out a lot more it the picture than it does on the actual blade. All in all I'd say the picture is slightly deceiving, but that is advertising. If there had been 10 stars I'd give it a 7.
beautiful sword for a first time buy from trueswords.com, only complaint is its not a full tang blad, but what can u xpect when its only 20 dollaz
