My wife and son's just gave me one for fathers day. It is a beautiful sword.
Very well made and tight. Sharp, sturdy, and well balanced. Excellent sword for the money or much more. Highly recommended.
Great value for the money. Weight feels nice, tachi kaze is loud, the pics and video just don't do it justice. The tsuba is darker than what is shown in the pics, which I think makes it look nicer. The saya is well finished, very glossy, but is a fingerprint magnet, so if that bothers you get the black one. The kissaki is well defined, and looks proper, unlike those cheaper katana. My favorite part of the sword is the hamon, which really stands out against all the etched/brushed ones. There's just nothing like a true hamon. My biggest two complaints are the fact that the rayskin isn't perfectly meshed with the fuchigane, the part near the tsuba. And Etching on the Seppa. I think the etching would be better placed on the Nakago along with the craftsman's name.
Value for the money
Tight fitting saya
Loud Tachi Kaze
Bohi (if you want a lighter katana)
Good well defined Kissaki
True Hamon/deferentially hardened
Saya is well finished, and fitted to the sword
Great sword for customization work
Ray skin wrap isn't a perfect fit near the Tsuba.
Mekugi pegs stick out a TINY bit too much
Not as well polished and reflective
slight rattle in the lower half of the Tsuka
Maru/Muku kitae (mono steel, no lamination)
Seppa has "China" and "Musashi" etched onto it.
This sword is very nice overall for its price range. Blade is sharp, but not exceptionally so. For the
money, very good value, Nicely executed workmanship. Would recommend it over many others
in it's range.
Beautiful katana for the price. Everything was very solid feeling. Nothing loose. Everything was in mint condition except the Saya had 2 small scratches on it which both were on the same side so no big deal for display purposes. Other than that very, very pleased with this low budget katana.
This is my first katana that i've purchase, so take that for what it may be. It came looking even more fantastic than it seemed online! the handle felt solid, no rattling or looseness, pretty much everything feels sturdy and strong. The only drawback was that they wrapped the blade in oil-soaked saran wrap, which must be for a specific reason, i heard someone else say theirs did too and damaged the blade, but i haven't seen any damage as of yet. Blade looks sharp, but not incredibly so, i tried doing a paper cutting test and couldn't make it work. All in all a fantastic start to my collection and definitely happy to call this my first Katana.
Dear Sirs,I would like to review the 1060 carbon steel Musashi line of Katana.As far as value goes,these katana are a great deal for the money.With a real ray skin same and a true temper line these katana are a great budget entry for someone who wants to buy a katana and not break the bank.These swords have bohi or blood groove and are a bit light for heavy cutting but for Iai Jutsu or Pool noodles and water bottles these swords are great.The saya could be tougher as there is no protection for the bottom of the saya.I dip mine in a liquid rubber used to coat tool handles that can be found in most hardware stores.Remove the handle and you will find the mei done with an engraver.The blade is numbered as is the handle and come with a certificate.The handle is double pinned with bamboo mekugi.Enjoy this blade,I enjoy mine.
This was first purchase from trueswords and all i have to say is AWESOME. Nice weight, good blade length, excellent grip, cool sheath although blue is more my color, excellent material, Superb cutting. I have no doubt that this blade is as close as one can get to being unbreakable. My only minor criticism is the design of the guard. Its a cool design however if you're a swordsman who keeps hand close in contact with the guard, you may get uncomfortable rubbing/irritation. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WARNING: I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. THE BLADE WHILE NOT SHARP TO THE TOUCH, THE CUTTING EDGE IS EXTREMELY THIN AND THE TIP IS VERY POINTED. IF SOMEONE WERE TO JUST DROP THE SWORD, POINTED END DOWN, AT LEAST 1/2 AN INCH FROM ONE'S FOOT, THE SWORD WOULD PROBABLY IMPALE THE FOOT DUE TO THE WEIGHT OF THE SWORD. ALSO DON'T TRY HOLDING THE SWORD BY THE BLADE BECAUSE ONE MINOR SLIP AND YOU'LL HAVE A DEEP CUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Other than that, TOTALLY AWESOME. I would strongly recommend this sword to any first time sword buyers. Thanks TRUESWORDS.
Absolutely Beauty full!I am VERY pleased. anyone looking for an elegant Katana for a good price should order one of these.Thank you for your prompt service and phone calls to answer my questions.I will be doing future business with you at True Swords.Rick Collins.
My starter sword, however having handled many battle ready and very expensive swords in the past I could not be happier with this Bamboo Warrior. I've watched videos on it and they've all been positive and so is my review. It feels very quality, it doesn't feel like an $80 sword, it feels like a $300 sword. Balanced and sturdy. Love it, you can really feel the quality when you're holding it.
It's Musashi....what else can I say? If anyone reading this owns any 1060 musashi katanta you know this is amazing! But for those who don't, with a flick of my wrist, this will cut inch thick rope clean! and with both hands, any tameshigiri mat is toast! Plus it's beautiful in every way a sword can be! It's a functional work of art for under $100...buy it!
I bought this after reading a very positive review and am extremely happy I did. The sword showed uo the day following the order which was great. The sword was as close to perfect as you could ask for in a sword at this price point. beautiful hamon and sharp!!! The Saya is a beautiful red and the sword feels really great in the hand. I had a issue with some low hanging apple tree branches in the yead so out I went sword in hand to do some pruning the Samurai way. I handle had to swing to sever 1" limbs like butter. After cleaning the sap off the blade it didn't have a mark on it!Fabulous sword with terrific customer service, can't beat it. I'm going to buy another Katana right here!!
Was skeptical about buying a katana at this price but saw great reviews about this on other sites so bought it and have absolutely no regrets. It feels substantial and balanced in my hands and came sharp and well oiled with nicely done intricacies. Gorgeous quality saya came wrapped in black cloth with numbered certificate also. Reviewed quality of 1060 blade and am certain for personal protection this will be more than sufficient if ever needed. Great for wall display also. Packed well by trueswords and fast delivery. Will be buying more soon. Thanks.
Amazing, if you're really stumped to go with the 80 dollar sword vs the 60...go with the more expensive. The paint on hardwood scabbard is my favorite color, and they did not make me cringe, its just beautiful! The blade looks amazing, altho it prolly has more oil than one would need, but I clean my katanas every 3 weeks so this will be fine for now. Dont forget to pick up a Maintenance kit!!!
the extra twenty bucks really does go quite far, as the scabbard is laqured, the cotton wrapping is suprisingly tight (thats important to me), and the only thing thats seems machined about the blade is curve at the very tip of the blade. the tsuba and hilt cap are exquisite! domo arigato gozaimasu!!!
This katana is absolutely amazing! I cant believe that this sword is under $100. The detail is great and the finish on the Habaki had a little scuff on it, but that is my only complaint. The sword is extremely sharp and cuts well.
This sword is absolutely beautiful, especially considering the price. - The says (scabbard/sheath) has a beautiful gloss finish, and you clearly can see the subtle patterns in the wood.- The ito (wrap on the handle) is soft and tight, and it feels great in your hands.- The blade is spectacularly crafted for the price, with a true non-machined hamon (edge of the blade). This blade easily slipped through a sheet of paper with very little force.- The sword is very well-balanced, and is not top-heavy like some of my other swords.If you are considering buying a $60 sword, I'd strongly recommend grabbing this model instead. I love my lower-priced Musashi/Musha blades as well, but this one is a clear step up and well worth the extra cost. This sword is an incredible value. I also feel I should thank TrueSwords for making this product available at a great price, so thanks!
This is my first purchase from True Swords and just received this a few hours ago and i have to say it was everything i was hoping for and more! It came sharp, it looks amazing, and it's perfect for display or practice. Of course don't expect to cut through anything stellar just things you would normally cut with a katana or any other sword in this price range.Everything i wanted and a lot extra, and it got here a day earlier than i expected!Go True Swords, you've gained another loyal customer!
I just emailed trueswords.com thanking them for a wonderful product at a low price.The saya is beautiful, the sageo was tight, the ito was tight, nothing was loose, the hamon was true like the site said, as far as the edge....paper slicing sharp. I have yet to break it down but so far this sword is a STEAL for under 100 bucks. I have to comment on the little details the ray skin...love it....the wood grain still noticable....the bamboo in the iron all very beautiful. Love this sword.
Beautiful Sword for a ridiculously low price. The wood grain can be seen through the red finish on the saya which is a nice touch but also shows some knots in the wood. The brass fittings and iron tsuba are excellent quality for the price and the polish is reasonably even. The ito maki is very tight and even alternates, something I've only seen in one other Chinese reproduction katana. The sword is a little too light for Iaido practice but cuts very nicely. However, it took a set the first time I tried to cut with it. I was able to bend it back to almost straight. There are better low end swords out there but for this price and with a natural hamon, any sword enthusiast should own one. Thank you, True Swords. :-)
