This stunning layered blade demands attention!

Hand folded and carefully shaped, no two swords are exactly the same. Over 1000 layers ripple across the sharp, hand honed blade. Attractive and well balanced, we can't stop admiring this katana blade. The photos do not do the blade justice! We are especially drawn to the unique layer patterns within the blood groove.

Featuring steel tsuba and fittings with a two tone finish, full tang construction, real ray skin and dual bamboo pegs. Well suited to be the center of your katana collection, this sword comes ready for cutting use right out of the box.

About Masahiro:

For more than 2600 years, the "City of Treasure Sword", Longquan, is known for making the best swords in the world. Located within the border of South Zhejiang, and under the Fengyang Mountain, Longquan is rich in resources which are ideal for crafting swords.

During the period of Warring States (770-476 B.C.), a famous sword maker named Ou Yezi created the most renowned sword in Longquan. Since then, the secret arts of crafting swords have been passed down from generation to generation.

Masahiro swords are hand forged by master craftsmen with years of experience from Longquan. These master sword smiths combine modern knowledge with traditional secrets to produce superior quality swords known for their durability, sharpness, and exquisite craftsmanship.

Happy with purchase

I'm by no means a sword expert. What I can tell you is this seems like a solid sword. Nothing loose, sharp, good handle.

The katana is well balanced. There was a minor error in the bend but only noticeable to those who know what to look for. The sharpness was great upon receiving and the weight is good, even for people not used to using a katana one-handed.

This is my 1st review for a product, ever.

The Katana arrived today (Fast shipping by the way), and it is everybit as described. The blade is beautiful (I don't really care if it's not a real hamon or not). Every one of the fittings are solid and tight. There's no wobbles or looseness to be found anywhere.

After the initial first cleaning (because it does come with some previous maintenance residue leftover on the blade) the blade looked very nicely polished and the grain of the folds was very prominent.

Suffice it to say, I will definately be buying from True Swords again.

Oh, I highly reccomend that you purchase the separate cleaning kit available on this site. Even though the sword comes with one, it's not quite as good as the one here.

So in closing, if you are considering buying this sword, do so. I was not disappointed, and I doubt very much that you will be.

Thank you True Swords!

This Sword Is Beautiful!!!!! Well Crafted and SHARP!!! So..... 4 Stitches Later, (after barely touching the Blade mind you) I Regret Nothing! This is such a BAD ASS piece of work. NO NEGATIVE Thoughts or observations here.. Its Amazing. Whether collecting for display, or the clashing steels of battle, this is One worth Ten Times its cost. AN.
