I have been admiring this sword for quite a while now. I figured why not spend my children's inheritance....lol. Then they promised it would be here by the end of the day on 12/23/17. Ok, True Swords, has once again delivered a very beautiful, affordable sword to me faster than i can even imagine. My new sword was delivered 12/19/17. TS has a sense of humor, at least I think so. I open this big box, thinking, this thing is HUGE, but inside that box with a ton of padding, was another box. i rip open that box, and find another box(the sword display box), so i gently open that box, thinking I'm Indiana Jones about to find the Arc, and the sword is in a sword bag. Well played TS, well played. seriously though, i got a great sword, very affordable( guess my kids will get their inheritance after all) and amazingly beautiful, delivered Earlier than i expected. One last thing, there was a note in the bag, stating the obvious, "no matter how strong the steel is in a sword blade, it will nick when struck against something equally hard like a tree trunk. there are other tools such as axes and machetes which are designed for this purpose." i understand cutting mats and plastic bottles and other cutting training, but seriously, why would you use an item with such beauty on anything like that? Zombies, the jury is still out on how well it performs against them. lol. If you want a great affordable addition to you sword collection, or if this is your first sword, I highly recommend this sword.
Great quality for what you pay, I've paid more and gotten crappier katanas, everything was solid, only complaints I have are the made in China stamp on the blade and there's a little wobble when in the scabbard as it seems more of a universal fit than a custom cut, but perfect addition to the collection
I gotta say that this is a great sword for the price. The overall quality of the sword is very nice. Its very sturdy and the scabbard fits snug.I also loved the fact that it came in a display box and had a sword bag too. Although the box is cheaply made it's still a very nice addition to the sword. My blade came pretty sharp but I'd recommend sharpening it if your actually gonna use it. Overall I am very impressed with this sword.
Bought this for my son for Christmas.
He loves it, and that is a very good thing.
Also, it is a well made Katana, nicely done.
This is the most real battle ready sword you can buy for the money. It can always be more sharp for those complainers and the technique and what your slicing are the difference between a bent blade and lots of fun. The blade is easily formed back into place if bent. I prefer 1 gallon jugs and 32oz bottles. Its a no brainer when the bogo sale is happening.
Don't listen to anybody that says these are like true combat swords. I am a true sword collector that has Chinese, European and Japanese swords. The pride of my collection is a $700 katana and let me tell you that if you tried to block an overhand stroke from my expensive katana With this one, the blade will likely shatter or bend or the tang would crack. Despite this it's a good novelty sword that can actually perform functionally if needed, at least for a bit.
I purchased during the BOGO deal and was immediately impressed with the speed of delivery. Secondly when i opened the package i couldn't believe how beautiful these swords were. The hand forging became apparent while cleaning the blades i could feel slight defection on one blade but nothing that would affect it's performance. The other is absolutely perfect so with i guess i have one for display and one to have fun with. Thanks Guys
Wonderful everything materials, weight, and overall feel. Definetly a must buy!!! Extremely satisfied.
Do not let the manufacturing in china decieve you. They are made in China, but they a handforged and live up to their word and are not machine stamped.btw dont expect these blades to be perfect. They are handmade and humans were never perfect, so loosen up and call for a refund and hope that it will be better. I give thanks for the artisans and designers of these fine blades, and keep it up the good work as well
Very good quality. A sharp useful sword. Does not have the cheap feel like some. I would not be afraid to battle with this sword. Great deal.
This is the first sword I've bought and i have to say that I am impressed over all. While the sword isn't exactly "razor sharp" it does come with a decent edge. The 2 things I don't like about it is that the tsuba is kinda loose and wiggles when swung and the 2nd thing is that this "ninja sword" says on the blade that it is made in China. Everyone knows that ninja come from Japan. Despite all of that, i'm happy with my sword.
I got them a few weeks ago (I bought it during the BOGO sale) and I love them. they are my first swords and I was very impressed. I was surprised to see they they came in a nice ordinate box. Both swords came sharp and they look great. Five stars.
I got this today and it was very sharp and scary looking but it has a very noticeable wobble. does anyone know how I could fix that without sending it back?
I bought this during a BOGO sale, plus the price was cut down to 100 bucks from like 160. So now I have not one but two of some real quality swords. I received them on time and excellently packaged. They came with nice display boxes and carrying sleeves. I immediately tested them both to make sure of the quality. My first reaction was at how heavy they were. They both had a hefty and authentic feel to them, while also maintaining just the right amount of flexibility. They didn't at first seem very sharp, but they cut and stabbed through cardboard boxes and water-filled bottles with ease. The swords and all their parts (tsuba and tsuki) we're sturdily attached, and while the scabbard may not have been as right as I wanted it, it was certainly not loose, and it looks great. Finally the purple is a dark color that accents the glossy black well. Overall, these are apart of my first collection of swords, and their quality is well worth the price I paid. One final note, these are not katanas, they are ninja ken or ninjatos, and are straight-bladed, however I saw no noticeable drop in cutting performance compared to other curved katanas I've used.
received these fast. Got them today,( order one get one free thing)Opened the first one and was very disappointed, Dull Dull dull, No edge at all, good butter knife. The second one was great. sharp enough for me. Maybe that'ts why one is free.The dull one is why the rating is only 3 stars.
I own a lot of swords and knives and this one is one of my best. I was surprised at the great quality for the low price. My friends are impressed as well.
For one, I feel the need to debunk my friend here who said Damascus steel cannot be created today. According to a 1981 New York Times article (http://www.nytimes.com/1981/09/29/science/the-mystery-of-damascus-steel-appears-solved.html) and various other news sources which you can google, modern Damascus steel can be "synthesized" by sword makers today. It cannot be called true Damascus steel because it is neither made in the middle east or is the process exact down to the letter. Torture test results : A. I have left this is high humidity. Even without oil, it is difficult to rust. Recommend keep it oiled with a light oil such as olive. B. The spine appears to be soft life most katanas, but not so soft that it easily bends. Although not spring steel, the sword is very flexible and does not bend easy. C. The edge can cut through wire at least 14 gauge thick. The point has managed to keep it's shape even after thrusting, although you might find yourself using a small hammer to bend the point strait after thrusting into hard objects such as solid wood. The edge is sharp enough to slit fingertips if run across. The edge also appears to be somewhat softer than I expected. Metal on metal, the edge can nick. But that can also be repaired, wherein when a hard edge is chipped, you need a professional smith to repair it with new material. D. The hand grip appears to be well made and formed, but after whacking stuff for a while I did notice some play. When I removed the handle, the tsuba and the mekugi (which is impossible to do without destroying the handle as the cord, decorations and ray skin are all lightly glued together, I discovered the issue has to do with inferior mekugi. For those that don't know, mekugi are the little bamboo pegs that hold the sword's hilt into the handle. Anyways, the Mekugi are brittle and cheap. Overall, it is a very flexible weapon that can easily be maintained by the layman, but would suggest replacing the handle and mekugi ASAP.
I received my Shinwa sword the other day and I must say it's worth every single penny - and I was fortunate to buy it with a 25% off promotion! I own a few cheap-o swords that are nice and all, but there is a HUGE difference between those wall hangers and this battle-ready sword. The metal is high quality and it is RAZOR sharp. I pity the burglar that breaks into my home! The purple color stands out against the black scabbard and it looks great. It's now my favorite samurai sword! Buy one, you won't regret it!
got this as a gift for my brother. couldnt be more impressed!!!the quality of this sword and the thickness of the blade is SICK!!!!!!will be definitely be getting more products that are from BUDK and SHINWA.
i just got this sword its great really solid and sturdy it came sharp out of the to.
