As a birthday present I have to say that this takes the cake (sorry for the pun). This is not my first sword but it is the first one that has a clay tempered hamon line and it is beautiful. The balance is exceptional and the edge is a razorblade. I can not believe this sword was less than $100.00. Well worth the price and then some. I am very happy with this blade - Thank you Budk
I was impressed with this sword. Cut down 3 inch branches with no delamination whatsoever!
A slight bend but was able to bend straight with ease.
For the price its worth it, but if you want a beast youre gonna have to spend atleast $600 from a high quality forge.
All the good things about this sword that everyone has already mentioned are true. It's excellent quality, especially for the price. My only complaints are that the blade seems to lean slightly to the left towards the tip (even before cutting), and that despite the "sharp, hand-honed edge" straight from the box, the blade wasn't cutting very well for my initial test cuts with it. A short time sharpening with an Accusharp fixed that problem. Now, the sword cuts just fine. Overall, it's an excellent buy for the money.
I am so extremely impressed with not only how fast my Musashi Miyamoto arrived, but also at how prefect it was. The hamon was my main concern. I was worried that it would b extremely beautiful on one side and not so much on the other. Totally not a problem, hamon is strikingly beautiful on each side of the blade. I also own a $250 Ryumon folded and differentially tempered katana. And out of the box the Musashi was tighter, and the hamon on the Ryumon folded katana was amazing on one side and the other side off the blade it was less than half the size, to the point of barely being able to see it. Needless to say I was a little let down but LET that one go bc that was my first fully functional katana. Out of the box as far as the whole handle, no creaks or anything loose so far. But like I said I've only had it not even 24 hours. But with the Ryumon, the handle made a cracking noise when practicing, meaning swinging it in the air at full speed,equivalent to a boxer shadow boxing, it felt right but I new something was wrong. Ended up being the kashira ( pommel, end cap), wtfe, I'm not going to be the guy that uses every Japanese word and expects your average person, or even a first time buyer to know or even worse have to look it up. So I ended up having to put the kashira in a vise and crush it some. Totally fixed it.
But anyways back to overview. Awesome sword, looks amazing, tight, straight blade, unbelievably fast shipping, they said 7-10 days. I got mine in 4. The sword is sharp, not expertly sharpened sharp, but way sharp enough to kill or possibly remove a limb, so be advised. I say expertly sharp bc my good buddy owns a knife shop and when he's done with any of my blades, I can shave the hair right off my arm , and there's no resistance, the hair literally jumps off.
However, I have two small things to nitpick about. #1 - I'm going to have to shim the saya (scabbard), because when I turn the housed sword upside down, it will fall out, which is not good, but no big deal, I've never done it before but I had an idea, and when I goggled it I was correct on how to do it. #2 as I checked out the saya (scabbard, sheath) I'm not going to tell anyone how to describe things.) I noticed a small chunk out of the saya, very small and hardly noticeable, bc it's lacquered over. And like I said it's very small and with this being a $100 beautiful functional sword, I really can't complain much. But I will complain if the handle starts becoming excessively loose. Bc T.S. (true swords) has a 30 day return, money back guarantee.But that is one on the many reasons True Swords seems to be a great company, but we'll see. Good luck to all of you modern day samurai's out there. Hope this helps you in deciding on a purchase. Sorry it turned into a dam novel.
I bought this sword on sale for $70 or so dollars whish is insanely cheap seems i feel its at least a $200 sword all day... Any who my sword i compare it to is my ronin rk, for starters the musashi is more refined looking, alternating ito wrap ronin no, and overall fit and finish. Also the ronin is 1045 clay temperd the musashi is 1060 clay temperd (with a beautiful real hamon line ronins was nice also), clay temperd is very rare in a sub $200 sword usually a fake hamon applied during polishing, never ever on a sub $100 sword! The habaki on ronin is ground uneven and very sloppy shaped, the musashi is well shaped. I do like my ronin at $130 its more expensive and feels looks inferior to the musashi. As far as blade tempering i dont know yet. (The ronin has a deeper curve i do like that) the musashi cuts great, out of the box untouched it precisely and super cleanly cut the top a water filled milk jug, my second swing it cut another super clean sliced additional layer only 3/4" tall! I couldnt believe it to take such a small amound off a jug with top allready cut off...for an entry level sword its awsome. In my opinion its the best quality and differential treated sub $200 sword available!
I bought this sword with a little skepticism of how good could a real clay temperd $99 katana on promo sale for $69 be...!? Answer surprisingly awsome! I own a decent quality budget clay temperd Ronin RK series i loved that retailed for $130, and this sword is noticeable better. The fit and finish is great and looks awsome, nice real hamon line anf it cuts awsome! Straight out of the box I was able to slice a 1/2" strip off a milk jug after the top had been cut off already...! If youre looking for a super deal on a katana any musashi clay temperd 1060 line like this "mimoto musashi" or the "bamboo warrior" (it has same blade) and others with that blade there in the $99 to $109 range retail. Do urself a favor and buy one you will NOT be disappointed!!
I bought this eight years ago and is still holding strong no rust issues as long as you maintain it. i even used it in a competition its well balanced and at a very good price for the quality even if the price has gone up.
My third order from this site was this sword. First off, I give it a 6/10.
Much better than my previous 2 orders, much more sturdy and reliable. I'm just trying to figure out why my Japanese Musashi Katana was made in China. Go figure that the 1 part of the sword that is loose and raddles and clanks against the metal is the one piece labeled "Made in China". Other than that, the sword is sturdy and I'm pleased with the value I got for such little financial investment. It came pretty sharp, but not as sharp as I was hoping. That's not a problem though because it's something I can fix myself here at home. I did 2 cutting tests as soon as I got it. Cut right through the bamboo thing and also two 1 gallon milk jugs lined up (cut through both, straight out of the box). This is a good sword for $99, but there are 2 or 3 others on this site that are the same price but may actually be better. The bamboo warrior model for example. I wish I would have gotten the red version of this one, but due to problems with shipping promotions and having to place the order over the phone, I had to get this model, the black one.
Once again, 6/10. Maybe 6.5/10
By the way, my sword is named "Shirakawa" and was forged by "Steward Lee" a few months before I even placed the order.
They just don't make them like they use to. That's what happens when you buy a mass produced item. The only thing you can do is take care of it as best as you can, and be very careful to learn how to use it properly so it doesn't get badly damaged if we are sent back to the dark ages and you end up in a duel lol

For this price, just a beautiful sword. Very simple. Razor sharp, so user needs to beware. You really cannot beat the value at this price. I've see a lot less on more expensive swords.
This sword is simply designed and that is where it's beauty lies. It is sharp out of the box. It has dual pegs so the blade won't separate from the handle. Awesome sword for kata. Awesome cutting sword. Definitely worth with the price, and hey it is a Musashi!
Ordered 2 of these. They are my first katanas. I am very pleased. They are both sharp and well made. I would buy again. Fast shipping also. Thanks
Great sword and very beautiful. Came sharp and the hamon looks amazing. No cracks in the saya and the tsuka is well wrapped
Trueswords is the best, I have 11 swords that I got from them and the best myamoto is the best in facked I have a buddy that's got a 500 dollar cold steal sword, he used my musashi and had to order his own best myamoto, thanks trueswords
I want to start off by saying, if buying a sword that you might want to use given an extreme circumstance (and I'll add you need some training to do so), you shouldn't go any lower than the $99 Musha/Musashi brand katanas. As far as functional katanas go, this is about as inexpensive as you want to buy imho. It's full tang, has a real hamon, is razor sharp, made from good steel. It is a weapon; no doubt about it. Second, the tsuba is up to you, but for me, I wanted something rounded and simple, and the Musashi tsuba is perfect. It isn't pretty. 99.99% of the people reading this will never need to use a katana (thankfully). It will be for show, so remember that when you get all excited about your new katana and want to see if it can cut a 2 liter soda bottle that never did anything to you. You'll want the blade to keep, long term, and mine came oiled and wrapped in plastic. After checking the blade, I left the oil on it. The blade is SOLID and heavy--no wobble in the handle. Even if it wasn't sharp, it would make a mean club. But it is very sharp. If the zombie apocalypse occurs (or someone unwanted comes in your house), you will be armed (of course swinging this beast indoors might not be so easy). It was significantly heavier than I expected--not so heavy that I couldn't use it one-handed, but definitely meant for 2. The practice blades I've used were roughly the same length, and I used them 1-handed, but they were much lighter. To use this one-handed will take some serious muscle. And it is beautiful, if anything shinier than I wanted, but absolutely no complaint. Like the blade, the saba is simple black. It will make a nice display. And if someone does come in the house, well... Hope for their sake they have long-term disability insurance at the very least. I don't need to cut a soda bottle to know what this could do.
this is my first sword I ordered this Thursday night got it Tuesday around 11am fast shipping love how it comes sharp right out of the box was able to cut thou a lot of 2 litter bottles without problems I will order more swords from here again as soon as I can, cant beat this sword for the price
Purchasing another Misashi! I love True Swords. Again, I can't wait for this sword! It's gonna be awesome adding this one to my collection. !!
Wonderful customer service team. Thank you guys!!
I don't know much about swords but I do know a quality product when I see it. It is a beautiful crafted sword with an amazing blade. It came sharpe. I have not cut anything due to the fact that I don't have proper cutting skills but I'll get there.
Everything it promised, much to my continued disbelief. I simply do not know how this sword can be made, much less sold, for anything close to this price. If I was going to display it, I would have bought one of the other Musashi 1060s with a more ornate tsuba. But this is a sword for use. And a sword like this in your hands is beyond functional, its transmogrifying. And this is the tsuba of Miyamoto himself, so...Ordered it Wednesday afternoon, got it Friday morning. And I live several states away. BTW, I have never before taken the time to review a product. Ever. Worth it in this instance.
Great sword no problems fast shipping will definitely buy from again.
