Bought as a Christmas gift and very happy with the quality of this sword . It arrived well protected and packaged and when i opened it to inspect it I was very surprised at how sharp it was . I know I'll be buying again from True Swords !
I'm new to katana collecting, I have bought 4 Shines swords which I love. I decided to try a different brand, I decided on this one because of price. Being a disabled veteran on limited income can't go for high end anything. I really like the blade on this sword and the color on handle and guard however I'm not found of the sheath. It has the look and feel of some kind of plastic, I prefer the high gloss on the Shinwa swords.
This is great sword, the quality of everything is absolutely perfect, but going so far as to say this is a sharp is a big stretch. I couldn't even slice through a hollow cardboard box using an overhead swing... Again it's beautiful, delivery was fast too; its just not sharp at all
Exceptional speed with delivery. Every aspect of this sword is solid. I could deal without the artificial hamon line, but for this price; I couldn't pass this up.
Absolutely the best 40$ i have ever spent! Handle is well wrapped and no loose parts. It is a bit lighter than my other katanas, but thats no big deal to me. This is a solid katana for only 40$. I have no doubt that this sword can handle some abuse. But please be carefull and responsible. I wouldn't try chopping down a tree with it, so to speak. I doubt you can find this quality and beauty for 40$ anywhere else but here. It will fit well with my higher end katanas.
YES I would highly recommend this to anyone. Thanks True Swords. Signed, ham'rd skull ??
It is a good blade, 40 bucks for a real functional katana is a hell of a deal, The blade is good, The fittings are are nice n tight, Imitation rayskin, But does feel good, Love the shiny black and gold, And came quite sharp, 2 things though, 1, Its not EXACTLY as bright as the picture, Close but not quite, 2, It is full tang, But it is EXTREMELY light for a katana, The lightest in my collection by far which is amazing, And IMO, Mush has a higher quality level then an Onikiri, So you wont be disapointed in this.
Great sword! Quite happy with how it turned out. The sword obviously has had some personal attention. The tip has a slightly different sharpening bevel than the rest of the sword but is still sharp, it seems like it's supposed to have that. The handle is tightly wrapped and not frayed. However, the sword is meant to be drawn from the right so the kurikata and shitodome are a but akward. Other than that, I'm completely satisfied
I recieved the Bamboo Katana today and I must say I am impressed to be honest I had exspected Budk to try to pawn off some flea market pos on me like it was top tier loot. But altho this Katana is not exactly top tier it is close. Feels like a natral part of my arm, I order the Crane and exspressed I wanted this one and you know what? Altho it was out of stock Budk sent me the Bamboo instead. There was a chip it the saya but I'm not complaining about it. The handle is gluded on to the tang (bad budk,bad boy) it keeps everything together. No fractures to the 1045 high carbon steel when I slamed it into my Claymore to test its duriblity. All and all a great sword. I give it a five out of five
Good balance and feel. Well constructed, looks good. It definitely does not look or feel like a $40 sword. Blade on mine also seemed slightly bent to the right upon arrival. No other issues, and given the price I will bend it back and not really worry about it. I will likely buy another sword or two from this line in the future, they are priced really well for how good they are.
Higly recommend this to anyone who wants a good katana without breaking the bank. It cuts through decent sized plastic bottles and boxes. Mine has a chip in the blade but its my fault. I am definitely going to use this when the zombies come!
