This classic businessman's umbrella looks and functions just like a regular umbrella. But this capable self-defense tool hides a deadly secret. Simply a push of the button on the handle and a quick pull unveils a 14 1/2" stainless steel blade - a menacing deterrent to would-be attackers and an effective weapon, should you be forced to use it. Rain or shine, never leave home without this trusty protector!
Great idea with shoddy execution and craftsmanship. The unit is not functional in its advertised utilitarian abilities, and the quality of the overall unit’s construction is substantially poor.
When it says functional I'm assuming the umbrella is what they're discribing? Because the sword part is just a little flimsy rod on the inside. They shouldn't advertise this as a sword at all!
as the headline states good idea bad execution. for some reason this toy is still getting good ratings, the title of this toy has fully functional suggesting its a weapon. i could sneeze to hard at this thing and break it, i definitely wouldn't fear it lol. look avoid this if you want something functional get a sword cane not....this thing...and not one of the cheap viper headed sword canes made of stainless. stainless steel gets brittle after 6 inches. go with carbon, you're welcome.
In fairness, I purchased this product for the novelty of it. It is neither a competent defensive weapon, nor an especially great umbrella. Instead, it is a cool conversation piece. It could perhaps skewer a yapping chihuahua on the commuter train, but it is not going to stop a 200 lb. thug. It is what it is... and it is exactly what I expected. No regrets.
Handle broke in half on day one. Pieced it back together and just a few days later the umbrella shaft came unglued from threaded portion.

I loved this item and was both excited and happy with it when it came. Good steel and an excellent umbrella to boot! I had it professionally sharpened, as it was a gift to my girlfriend. We even were able to use it as an umbrella a few times, but once at dinner it was leaning against her leg as we sat at the table, she moved and it fell- and when i say it fell, I mean it barely fell any distance at all, propped up against her leg to fall flat on the ground- and the hilt broke off. Clean off. Now I didn't expect this to be full tang or the best piece of equipment around- but I also didn't expect the hilt to be made of plastic, the kind of cheap plastic that breaks or shatters after a 2ft fall. This being said, I may buy another one, and wrap the hilt in leather, or attempt to do something to reinforce it. It's always sad when such a happy feeling can turn to sadness so quick. But you know what they say- Its better to love and lost...
I like the idea of the hidden sword but like others it's really just a spike theres no edge at all and it should be up dated to a release button it takes to long to unscrew in an emergency , and as far as the umbrella goes i don't want to be in a real down pour with any wind it has no way to lock in place .
I finally had to buy one of these, just to have a sword umbrella, even though I realized it would likely be impractical as either an umbrella or a sword. As an umbrella it is actually very nice, with a 40 inch nylon shell, and good metal ribs (making it 41" rib tip to rib tip) It is 37" flat to flat, quite large enough for two people to walk together underneath. In fact with the 10 1/2 inch molded black plastic Samurai style handle, it makes a perfect umbrella for two people, though at least in my state, one of them would have to have a concealed carry permit to make it legal. The eight, 3-inch, almost invisibly thin springs on the rib supports allow easy open and close. It really seems like a well designed, well made umbrella. The shaft and tip are metal, with a strong glossy smooth layer of pain that I scratched through only with difficulty to prove they are not plastic, as they do not stick to a magnet. The tube shaft is over 28 inches deep, and totally hollow, so the potential of adding a much longer blade, and perhaps even borrowing the handle from an ordinary umbrella is intriguing. Then you would have a REAL concealed sword umbrella, whose only fault would then be the need to still unscrew the blade 4 1/2 full turns, which makes a quick draw totally impossible. The molded plastic handle, with its molded-in-place 2 1/2 inch tsuba style guard seem cheap, but are made of solid heavy plastic, giving this sword (without the umbrella part) a balance point two inches BEHIND the guard, which is, of course, unheard of. In fact, in its umbrella, while using the shoulder strap across the back in the correct Anime/ninja carry position, it is constantly trying to slip toward a handle down direction, and requires you to keep one hand on the strap at all times, making it decidedly more difficult to leap from roof to roof (but hey, no one ever said the life of an ninja was EASY!) In the umbrella, it is an impressive 40 inches. But sadly the blade is an anemic 15 inches, very dull, and, using my handy magnet, has an estimated 1 inch tang, so hardly likely to cut through armor. However it IS stainless steel, and could be sharpened, or as i mentioned before, replaced if you are a "do it yourself" type. It DOES have a sharp point, and I would certainly run away if faced with it, even if it was wielded by a a female midget with buck teeth, maybe ESPECIALLY if it was wielded by a a female midget with buck teeth though in a pinch I do suspect that she might actually have a more formidable weapon by leaving it in the umbrella as a 40 inch long Katana-handled metal weapon. Judging by their reactions, I think It really does make my neighbors a little uncomfortable when I carry it across my back, with the big Katana handle projecting over my shoulder, with my hand on the strap up by my shoulder, as though I am about to draw (they don't know I have to keep it there for balance) and they seem most especially nervous when I am scrambling across their roof tops, howling (most ninjas are WAY too quiet). Overall, I am quite happy I bought it. The neighbors, maybe not so happy.
Happy with the Sword and Umbrella but it didn't come with the sling on the cover to put on your shoulder like in the picture. I wish it had come with the sling. I'm waiting to hear back from customer service if they will ship me the umbrella cover with the sling/strap. It's not noted in the description that it doesn't come with it. I like the sword and had it engraved. I hope I can get a cover with the strap.
The sword was as dull as can be. It couldn't even go through cardboard. I like the product, but I would have more luck trying to cut something with a butter knife.
I am pleased with this product, with a few exceptions. First, the miniature sword takes several seconds to un-screw from the umbrella. ("Just hold on here Mr. Mugger, I've got to take apart my umbrella...just a few more seconds...") And secondly, the guard on the sword is as crooked as the letter "c". With these exceptions, this product is satisfying.
A real decent umbrella. A great replacement for my other long umbrella. Plus you you have the hidden blade just in case you're ever in a serious tight jam. Hopefully I will never need to use it. It's worth the purchase.
It's a very nice umbrella, actually. The sword came out of the box very dull. It scratches against the sides of the 'sheath' when I unscrew it and it makes this high pitched squeaking sound. Mostly for display, would take too long to get out if I ever actually needed it for self defense, but still a nice umbrella and feel pretty cool to carry around.
This very well made umbrella is mated with a 15 1/4" 'skewer', not a sword per se. And that is better because if you needed to deploy it, you're not going to be slicing but jabbing up under the sternum or chin of a dangerous attacker. Twirl the well balanced umbrella counter clockwise 5X and the weapon is at the 'ready'. The first thing I did was to nip off the molded hilt on the beautiful handle so as not to 'advertise' this 'concealed weapon' to any alert local constabulary. A pity as it serves as a comfortable, naturally positioned rest. Still can't believe this umbrella is only 13 bucks; going to order 3 or 4 more for gifts and backup.
The sword isn't as long as the umbrella and the handle is way too big. It's a giant handle for a smaller sword, but the umbrella function is very nice.
Upon receiving this umbrella I combined the sword part with the umbrella part only to find that it does not secure in place. It is extremely loose and makes an irritable squeaky noise. While holding it, if you were to shake it from the handle it will make an obvious rattling noise. So much for hidden blade, its painfully obvious and the whole novelty of the product has been lost. This is the first product I have had from true swords that has disappointed me greatly.<br /><br />On a side note this was not bought for the blade itself, it was purchased on a concept of novelty. However the quality of the product is extremely poor. The only positive aspect is the umbrella however how can I put it to use when the connecting part barely keeps the two parts together?
Just got this in today. nice product, sturdy blade, and extremely fun to cray around. Just don't get into sword fights with it. oh and a dull blade, but nothing a little sharpening can't fix.
Umbrella itself is made surprisingly well!! Sword is good, a bit thinner then i would have hoped but thats only becuase its completely untraceable when it is in the shaft
I bought the umbrella sword, but when it arrived the handle was broken in half. I actually didn't care about that though because i was planning on shortening the handle a small bit anyways.Also the umbrella part works great, and as mentioned before you have to unscrew the blade so no fast attacks. My family saw this and wanted one for their own, GREAT buy and arrived fast
Excellent quality, the umbrella alone would make this an easy sell with a smooth sliding lock and a beautifully simple design. The carrying bag works great, making the owner look awesome when wearing it like a back-pack. Handle is pure plastic only carved to look like a katana handle, still feels good. Only complaint is the sword is TINY, both in length and in width, I feel a larger blade would've made this 10x better. Being unsharpened and with a locking system that requires about 5 turns to screw in the blade are a few dissapointing factors but the overall quality of the product, excellent price, and surprising utility make this an excellent purchase and one that will certainly make me buy from TrueSwords again.
Great product.<br />Placed order on Monday afternoon & got it the next day by 9.am. Amazing delivery time.
I was surprised at the quality of the umbrella. Having it spring assisted at the ribbing will give it more sability then other umbrellas I coud buy at the the store. The blade, however, was less then perfect and I saw quiet a few damages in the blade itself.<br /><br />Over all a good buy.
My opinion.<br />The handle looks less conspicuous and better than I thought. The umbrella is also better than I thought. The casing (sheath is cheap, but fit's perfectly). It's a pain to unscrew the blade (time wise). Blade isn't sharp, but I find it to be easily sharpened. The tip however is great for puncturing which is what I would assume it's made for.<br /><br />Quality-3<br />Purpose-4<br />For show-5<br />Price-4<br /><br />Overall-worth it
I bought 5 items, including this knife for my first order. Everything is perfect and super fast shipping. Customer service, we responded to my email on a Friday evening 11h! It's incredible! And on Tuesday, my package arrived!<br />So, this umbrella is incredible.<br />The system is great, because you have to screw and unscrew the handle to remove the cutting blade (one sharp edge is enough!). As no one can know that it is a chrome sword! No false operation, you must unlock. In addition, a design of madness, it goes everywhere. Plus a bag with a strap to put around our shoulder.<br />Also, when you buy this kind of article, you must test it, shaking ... because it happens when the production is bad, you hear the blade on the wall is bad because if you have a control ... you know what I mean! And this one is perfect and light. Thanks a lot True Swords and God bless you.
The umbrella is of good quality. The tip is plastic as are most. Note that the handle must be unscrewed several turns to pull out the blade. It's not something could be done with one hand. <br /><br />Of all the sword umbrellas I reviewed on various web sites, this looks and feels best.
Purchased this Item for a friend and was embarrassed when he showed me the blade it was more like a metal stick. The umbrella is well made though and is always handy. I would not purchase another of these especially for the price. I basically got a $35 Umbrella.
