A hardwood handle is double-pegged to the full-tang blade and then wrapped in faux ray skin and traditional cotton cordage. While this sword could be displayed proudly with your sword collection, it is truely at home slicing through rolled grass mats and bamboo stalks.

The steel is nice and springy, it is indeed the tempered carbon steel that is advertised. The blade does not have a tacky looking fake hamon printed on it like many lower end katana, a fact I am grateful for. The one I received has no rattle when swung and even fits very snuggly into the attractive saya. It has an accurate curve and is very straight. The tsuba is thick bronze (or some mettle close enough to bronze that I can't tell the difference), and the handle and it's fittings all fit nicely and look good. It handles close enough like a higher end katana. The tip on mine had a slight bur on it that needed to be honed off but its a much more minor flaw than I would expect from a sword in this price range. Overall I'm impressed with the level of functionality here for the price. This is the perfect weapon to go out and make cuts with while your nicer swords hang safely on the wall.
One complaint I've owned this sword for nearly 2-3 years. When it first arrived it rattled a little bit at the hilt but not enough to cause any problems. It's starting to rattle a lil bit more now. But it's been through (pun intended) all kinds of fruit, so many water bottles, thick sticks through thin trees (which I know is not recommended but yolo) and it's still holding up. So easy to sharpen. No matter what it cuts it goes through like butter. Out of everything I own and all of its flaws it's still my go to sword. I first got when it was 80. And seeing it now at under 60. Bruh. Get this freakin sword.
I am thoroughly pleased with this piece steel, such a nice Rockwell it seems. The hamon is well placed and will make for peaceful sharpening in the future. Sharp enough to cut right out of the box.
Ok nice balance took a fine ceramic stone to the blade and it turned into a razor blade in 5 minutes cut cleanly through 10 water bottles double stack cut branches clean and put it in a hickory log and keeps it's edge went through burlap sack like butter
and with this you get a deal...well built full tang...cuts clean. i had to buy one i could use since the first sword i bought here was to beautiful lol
this sword without a fake Harmon line is superb and extremely sharp out of the box with no edge burrs, Tight, great balance and at a give away price for the extreme quality it is. Buy one today. It is a serious threat to anything it hits.
Got it in like a week and was so stoked to see it outside and was even more stoked once I took it out of the box! It's an absolutely beautiful sword everything was right it came with oil and a handy cleaning guide! The bald is so straight and very sharp! I was extremely satisfied and will absolutely be purchasing more and more from True Swords thank you so much for an outstanding product! A++++++
Got this sword a while ago, and the Tsuba is a little loose, but otherwise its ok.
Got this sword yesterday, it is my first katana and I have to say I am very pleased for the low price.
It came sharp and so far I have no problems with the tsuba or the blade itself. No rattling and very easy to swing.
This sword is perfect for cutting water bottles, grass mats, rolled newspaper, bamboo, and other things. I highly recommenced this sword to my friend and he is going to get one but they are currently out of stock.
Just got this in the mail and it is of much better build quality than the price would indicate. Very solid feel and excellent balance.
I would have expected to pay + $70 for this sword. Very solid and the engraving adds an overall perfect demeanor for the sword. Already recommending this to everyone who asks about it. Thanks BudK!
This sword is unbelievable for what you pay solid construction. Full tang and sharp no frills no fake hamon just an excellent hand forged blade with blood groove all you have to do is razor sharp the blade and you have one hell of a fine weapon that can take whatever you throw at it worth every penny.Great Sword....
Realy a battle ready! I tested and no fail. Very especial sword, good balance with easy handles. For the price its very good.
I just received my Raging Waters Katana today , I must say that this thing is just AWESOME and came pretty sharp, but needs to be sharper, which will not be an issue, it has good weight to it and truly is priced way to low, but I am not complaining at all. Thanks BUDK again for something great! also received for free BLACK LEGION MACHETE WITH 2PC THROWING SET and I just love them
This sword it is easily as good as some three hundred dollar swords I have seen so as far as I am concerned this sword is a must have for anyone who likes sword because it is cheap enough to beat up but sturdy enough to stand up to what ever you have to throw at it.
This thing is a very solid sword.
Splits through cardboard like air.
Only one problem though, the tsuba started to click up and Down after awhile.
I think that this sword is better quality than the price suggests. Sharp enough, can be sharpened though. Carbon steel, so it's battle ready. Full tang, so it's sturdy. Nice weight to it. Had a nice and fun test cut or two with it. The heavy blood groove is nice. I haven't disassembled it to test the ease and tang, although the bamboo pins are a nice sign. It's a bit short, but I guess most Katana are. That's more realistic too, I've learned, so it's actually a plus. There's a nice soft cloth wrap around the sword and nice wooden scabbard as well. Besides being a little sharper, it only lacks the cool wavy design from a nice smithing trick near the sharp part of blade which prevents this sword from being in upper classes. The missing wavy line, a smithing mark that may go hand in hand with clay and making the sharp better extra hard so it be sharper and sturdier, is actually more important than the missing razor sharp feature, on that note. Anyway, thanks BUDK and Musha. For being special.
This is the real deal people, the weapon is beautiful no shaking parts everything is tight full tang battle ready katana. it comes sharpened you will need to put a little bit finer edge on it. They put a good edge on it at the forge any sharper it would cut through the box. This weapon is worth every penny. It has two pins in the handle so you can break the sword apart. i am thinking of having they blade etched to make it mine give it that personal touch. Buy this sword you will not be sorry if you are the people at BudK will give you thirty days to decide. you wont return it though.R Stewart
I'm very impressed with this blade, it's very well made, sharp right out of the box, sturdy and simply gorgeous.
with the factory edge I sliced through a 4X4 cardboard shipping box cleanly.
when I ordered this sword I was expecting a $40 sword, what I got was surprisingly well made and of excellent quality. for anyone looking for a good blade for practice and doesn't want to use their higher priced blades, you need to buy this one
