This is the Second swordI bought that had some Bad Reviews! Why? Because Dan Voges of Nebraska explained some failures and he highly recommended the products! I have Many other Shinwa swords and all are well made so I have to agree with Dan in his acessments. These are Swords, not baseball bats, as such they are made to slice, not Hack! Thanks Dan, because you can explain Quality, I now own another Fine Sword!
This sword is awesome. The first thing I did was slice a Gatorade bottle. The blade is perfection and the case it comes in astounded me. A must buy in my personal opinion.
Caught this on the BOGO sale so received two for the price of one! Ordered on a Friday and had them Monday afternoon. GA to ME in just three days is absolutely fantastic. Thank you TS and FedEx ground!
Both swords came in their own very nice display box. Each was in a sword bag. Both had sharp edges - made clean cuts right out of the box. One of them had a very slight wobble but the other was tight. These are my first double-edged swords. I am in no way any expert, but they felt good in balance and weight. The pictures in the display above do not do the piece full justice. The blades are beautiful.
In my opinion, TS is a quality company and I recommend them to anyone looking for value and service. They will have all my business.
I have had this monster for a year now...the first thing i said when i got it was demon slayer..it was sharp and bad a$$..this thing is fierce. ..i though i was going to cut myself by looking at it..if you got the money i suggest you buy it..it's well worth it..
Still waiting on it to arrive but I purchased it due to a friend of mines that has it and it is truly amazing. Such sharpness and the perfect length as well.
I have sold a few of these swords and have one I practice with often I bent the blade once, it's easy to bend any blade, as you go to strike if you turn your wrist even a little bit you won't strike square with the blade that is how you bend a blade all you have to do is bend it back. This double edge sword is great, when it comes to double edge swords the Black Dragon is lighter than most, this makes the Black Dragon a very swift sword. If you are a true Swordsman you will Love this sword. Thank you, Daniel of Nebraska.
Comes in a display worthy sword case, has a beautiful look to it. It is wicked sharp, and every bit as elegant as described.
I own four swords and they are great if you people that say you do not care for what you got? Then spend 5000.00 on up for a highly ture made sword and then you won't have to complain.
This is my first order placed with this company and the item is not worth it . The handle wrapping glue is breaking down and unraveling the glue is all over scabbard and blade it looks like dried fish scales and wood on the scabbard is paper thin.their is nothing about this item which is not a negative.
I got this sword to replace one that was stolen from me. I like the weight and balance of it. As far as it being Damascus steel, I can't tell. But it seams that the coating would come off verry easy. It is far from Razer sharp, like advertised. If I sharpen it , I would likely have to use gun bluing to make the sharpened edge black again.but I am satisfied with it for the price.
I tested this sword on a plastic bottle full water and it bent almost 90 degrees it looks good but it is NOT battle ready as advertised.
I can not believe you called this damascus steal. Lightly took this very sharp sword , from one end to the other and checked the flex of the blade. Whoa! This is not damascus. Why don't you try it! What's left of this $130 piece of garbage is in a junk pile, and will be taken to the dump this spring. You people know better than this.
recently bought this sword and i gotta say its pretty good not as sharp as i wanted and theres small wood chips in the scabbard but over all its great. You can tell its real damascus steel ( mine came with red and black streaks ) and its strong I wacked it as hard as i could agenst a tree ( aslo capting of the wrestling team so im not weak) and didnt break or scratsh when i pulled it out all there was was some weird tree goo This is a sword that in the olden days soldiers in japan were give cause they were relyable and not to much to manufacture so if you're looking for A good sword thats not to much this is a sword for you
I got this sword on a BOGO sale, not very impressed. This sword screamed poor quality! When held up to a light you can see many imperfections in the blade,and my handle on both swords were very loose and the fittings were not what I expected, again poor quality. For a $129.99 sword this is bad, maybe worth the money for $19.99. Cheap storage box made out of thin plywood that you can crush with one hand. Used one sword to test as in the videos and the blade bent beyond all repair, I then sanded down one side of the bent blade and to my amazement the "Damascus" markings disappeared. Just regular steel. I've seen good reviews of this sword so hopefully I received a cheap knockoff that BUDK did not know about. Returning the unused sword for an exchange for something worth $129.99. I've always received good quality blades from here so this is hopefully just an oversight.
This is a well built sword for the price. The fit and finish is more than adequate. I'm amazed at the quality for the price. It is a heavy sword, which is good since it will be a practice piece. The steel is beautiful. I suggest since this is a black steel, you shine a flash light or bright light on the blade to really bring out the beauty of this sword. Since this is a double edged sword, extra care and precautions should be taken. This is definitely not a toy or a novice sword. All in all this is a great purchase.
wonderful sword.much better than i expected.
Well it was a beautiful sword to start. Had the look of Damascus and even the weight. When I took it to my proving grounds, The desert where all my quality weapons are tested, it bent on a yuka which is a small desert flowering plant. This is an item even my craziest swords go through with ease because this plant is full of water. The sword bent both at the handle and towards its best cutting point. It's a pretty display piece but that is all it is and will ever be.
If anyone is concernd about Shinwa swords after Nick from Aurora Co.comments,don't be the Shinwa Black Dragon is an amazing sword,swords are rated in many ways,one way is slow to swift for a double edge long sword this is the swiftest full size fully functional sword I have ever seen it is a pleasure and honor to get to practice with this fine sword.The gunk you see on your sword when you pull it from the scabbard is wax they pour wax into the scabbard to protect the sword,it has never bothered me I simply wipe it off the blade before use.Not all swords are made to be dissasembeld and this one is not,their is really no reason to remove the hilt from the blade tang you do not need to clean the tang,and the tang is full length and is NOT wielded onto the blade it's a true full tang,a continuation of the blade.Some Shinwa swords are easy to disassemble,if the handle has two pegs it can be disassembled,if their is only one peg the handle is glued on.This dose not in any way make the sword,dangerous,unuseable or cheap.This sword can be easaly disassembled you just have to know how and you should never atemt to remove the handle and guard without the proper training.I am an expert with swords,Both in use and repair.If your guard is a little loose don't worry about it unless you use your sword to practice martial arts.I am 55 years old I have been buying repairing and playing with swords since I was 19.I have yet to see the perfect sword all swords have there flaws,sometimes it takes a trained eye to see them.Buy swords to use,buy swords because they look beautiful,buy swords to collect,know what is a functional sword and never use a nonfunctional sword,BudK has a wide variety of functional and nonfunctional swords all are beautiful.I hope this will help you.Thank you your friend,Daniel Voges
unfortunately with every shinwa sword I've purchased the guard, blade, and scabbard need repetitive cleaning to remove all of the gunk from old and inferior oil. Also when I disassembled this sword the tang was fairly small and completely glued to the tsuka (handle) which caused the handle to crack and shatter at the attempted removal. So I'm now a little hesitant to buy Shinwa products due to this issue. (Not being able to disassemble the sword makes it very difficult to clean)
I bought this sword on a whim. I was skeptical about the black Damascus. My fears were unwarranted. The sword is beautiful as is the blade. The pics don't do it justice. I will buy this quality from now on. If you sharpen your own swords please use a handheld ceramic rod sharpener. This sword is worth every penny.
