  • 45" heat forged carbon steel blade
  • Leather wrapped hardwood handle
  • Coordinating wooden scabbard
  • Powerful full-tang construction
  • 69" overall length


This massive Japanese Odachi sword is an outstanding example of craftsmanship. The odachi was used on early Japanese battlefields, but its size soon relegated it to use as an army's standard or as an offering to the gods. Stretching 69" long with a heat-forged 45" carbon steel blade. This is a superb item, and one you'll definitely want to add to your collection!

Not too bad. Reviewed by on Jul 24, 2015   4 out of 5

For the price, this sword is excellent for training. The blade is of carbon steel, so under stress it bends instead of breaks, which is preferable in a desperate situation. The tang isn't full, but there's 5-6 inches near the end where the handle is hollow. I just hacked the end off and mended/reinforced the handle with duct tape, and it still works fine, despite the blade's obvious bend. I train on wood, so the blade would be in better condition if bought by a seasoned practitioner of the art of the Odachi. This is a very good sword for exhibitions and resistance training for your body, with sharp changes of direction during strikes. I myself have very much enjoyed this sword, and do encourage anyone looking for a training sword to buy this sword, but use with caution.



Are you serious Reviewed by on Jul 20, 2015   5 out of 5

Someone in the description called it a display sword because his friend hit a tree branch with it and the blade was damaged. SWORDS ARE NOT MEANT TO CUT DOWN TREES OR THEIR BRANCHES. You can go buy a $900 sword and whack a tree with it and I guarantee the blade will till be damaged, maybe not to the extent of bending the blade like this one would be but the blade would still be in need of repair. If you want to whack a tree buy a machete or an axe, something actually designed for hitting trees. Note. Swords also aren't meant to collide with other swords, as it damages the blades, swordsman would usually dodge swings and parry with the side or back of the blade if they absolutely had to, but never with the blade. If you want to use this sword for slicing up water jugs or watermelons or sword cutting matts then it will work just fine. Just remember to keep your blade oiled to prevent rust.

45 is angle iron. Reviewed by Matthew on Jul 20, 2014   2 out of 5

1045 is 5 pts above Ornamental iron. It can be hardened and even doing so only requires water. But it is not steel. Not steel not a sword. Polishes great and easily and can almost hold an edge. My first mentor liked 1040 iron for gates.

good blade for price Reviewed by mad88hatter on Jun 11, 2010   4 out of 5

If you get this sword you need to know that it is mainly a decorative sword. My buddy took a swing at a branch and the sword bent slightly not to bad but it just shows it is only decorative. Altogether great for price though. Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate spelling.



Japanese Odachi Sword Reviewed by Michael Mills on May 23, 2010   4 out of 5

Just a small edit note really, the cross guard was really loose how some might be on not so high quality items. Also as expected the flimsy chain accents are just a cheap aluminum alloy ring linked so they broke soon as i attempted to lift this beast up by the one tethered near the cross guard, the small chain and diamond shaped weight was completely broken off beyond fixing. My only concern on an exchange is the loose cross guard, it is in a place as such that i cannot fix it myself and would just prefer it to be exchanged instead. Great sword tho overall, definitely worth the money aside from minor snags like the chains (and weight) and cross guard. Very beautiful weapon.



Japanese Odachi Sword Reviewed by Rickblood220 on May 19, 2010   5 out of 5

Very Impressive sword without a doubt. Nice blade and hilt, endcap was nice and snug as well. Sheath was very decent, my only question was the authenticity of the "full tang" it said in description, but at glance on the hilt there was no real evidence of pins holding it place but could be merely covered up with the grips placed around them. If anyone has any more info about the "full tang" please contact me thank you.
