This sword is the overall best collection and they are beautiful swords functional and at a pretty good price I have to get another
This katana is not only a piece of art it is a functional "cutter" that is differentially hardened with real hamon!! What more could you ask for at this price point? I have wanted a katana for over 30 years, but had never purchases one as "wall hangers" simply didn't appeal to me and functional swords were never in my budget. MUSASHI and True Swords changed all that for me. I couldn't be more pleased!! I believe the Praying Mantis Sword is the most underestimated and stylistically "Samurai like" of the silver series lineup.
Just received my musashi mantis katana a few days ago, this sword is amazing! All of the fittings are rock solid. The sheath (excuse my lack of knowledge on the Japanese word) is great quality and holds the sword well. The sword does not tip out when turned upside down. The blade is absolutely beautiful and the real hamon stands out perfectly. The blade is razor sharp so be careful, it's takes hair off of my arms, no joke. Great value and one of my favorite pieces. You will not be disappointed.
I'll be honest when i first ordered this sword i was worried but the second it came in and i pulled it from the sword bag i knew it was love at first sight. it came a little heavily oiled but a quick wipe down revealed a slick razor sharp blade that i actually sliced open my thumb with by accident. The tsuba feels like steel and it is rather heavy but i like that about it. the pictures dont do the hamon justice but ill describe it as an irregular wave style that you see on all the high end katanas. The fittings and the cord wrap were all extremely well fitted and tight absolutely no rattle at all on the sword. I got out some bamboo mats and went to cutting after going through 6 and no dings on the blade i knew this sword was gonna be able to power through everything i put infront of it. im already ordering another 1060 musashi sword
Mostly everything as i expected it to be, except for that it wasn't that sharp.
First off i like to say thank you to true swords because not only is the serves awesome and friendly but, the folks at true swords have helped me so many times and even included a free gift before! and i would like to say thank you guys so very much! ^_^ Now about the sword, this is actually the first sword I've ever owned a sword so I'm just an amateur when it comes to katanas. It has a nice blade that is sharp, the cotton cord wrap is nice and does feel good in the hands, all the fittings are tight, and the main reason I got this Katana was because the suba because it looked liked and had the same shape of the Nietono no Shana and i really want that sword too!!! but it's no longer available. over all this is a great sword! thanks again True swords a pleasure doing business with you as always.
