The uniquely styled blade features three edges in total thanks to the wide, slanted tip design. The entire blade is covered with intricate engravings and makes a striking impression once unsheathed.
Not bad but it's not sharp at all as in i literally have spoons that are sharper but it's a nice size
The sword is an amazingly detailed replica. The engraving on the blade is very well done. The sword is heavier than what I anticipated but I'm glad it is. When it first arrived via FedEx (A day early) I pulled it out of the box and found that the wooden "pommel" was broken. I immediately called true swords/budk and told them what was wrong and was able to get it exchanged out for a new one. They have great customer service which is one of the reasons I'll be buying from them again.
When I took this one of the box I was excited when I punch you did I was rather disappointed it was not sharpened on all three sides like it was said it was actually quite dull not factory sharp . The metal on the blade seems pretty flimsy did not seem as thick or heavy as it was advertised also have the lettering on the blade is wiped off or came off I don't know but does not represent sword in picture I have a friend with the same sword and it a lot thicker , sharper and did not bend when you hit a thin tree branch . His is machete quality when this is utterly outrageous , I have ordered many times from budk but this one let me down . I should have listened to the comment that's first on the page
I did not receive the sword in the picture. This one is not as heavy or as thick. It is sharpened differently, more like a knife than a mower blade. The shape of the blade is different at the tip, flat not angled. The lettering is painted onto the blade, starting to wear off, and not engraved. The blade is only 28 1/8" and overall length is 40 1/16". The hilt is similar but not the same. The scabbard is made of soft wood that was cracked when it arrived, possibly from shipping. This sword is not worth $60. Please send me the sword in the picture.

Just had to rewrap the handle with some fabric tape old stuff came off instantly loving the weight might change hilt one day so I can swing this boss sword
I did not read the description properly and it is a lot bigger than i was expecting! its a very large sword with a lot of power! i highly recommend!
VERY GOOD SWORD IT'S VERY STURDY AND I CUT HALF WAY THROUGH STEEL I BARLEY EVEN SWUNG but it comes sharp not razor then I made it razor sharp I give it five stars
Translating the inscription would be very difficult. The language is called "Thahindi" and was created by the writer/director of the movie, Kurt Wimmer. Supposedly, Mila Jovovich learned the language as she speaks it, or, at least a few phrases of it during the movie. Contacting Mr. Wimmer and asking for a translation, or, an alphabet, vocabulary and grammar would be the only way to find out what the inscription means.
The engraving is really cool, but it is heavy. It feels like it can be use more like a executioners sword rather to use in a battle field. I kind of wish it was more the size of the one in the movie. But this piece is a looker and well do well in my man cave.
This is a very nice sword sturdy and strong. The engravings were done perfectly its a product of good craftsmanship.
Just received this via FedEx. Arrived in great time even though I ordered it on a Friday evening. My first order from True Swords and not my last. Very well packaged. Much more impressive looking than the photos naturally. the leather wrapping while nice is going to be covered with grip tape both to preserve it and to make it easier to wield. Heavy sword but that's fine also. I want something like this with heavy construction able to stand use. The angled tip is a bonus also. While unique looking with a squared tip I was hesitant on this sword because of it. The angle makes piercing more tactical. The inscription on the scabbard matches those on the sword which is cool. My challenge to True Swords is to provide a translation for the inscription lol. I'm searching for them. Reasonably sharp when arrived but as with most swords, It will be sharpened more. I wouldn't want to be on the point end though as it will pierce. I may buy another of these and HIGHLY recommend this to others.
This is my first order from TrueSwords and I'm looking forward to my next one! <br /><br />Anyway, I like it a lot, the engravings on the sword look great and it's fairly functional too. It looks great too. <br />There are a few downs about the sword though, the biggest is that everytime its unsheathed, there's a greasy olily substance on the sword so I have to rub it out everytime to do so. Another thing is that the pleather on the handle unravelles after you take it out a few times. Hopefully, if it's wrapped it black duck tape it will work out. <br /><br />Overall, it's worth it but be aware of these things. :)
This is a great sword. It is heavy near the tip which i like with this sword. and even thow i knew the measurements before i ordered it when i opened it its seemed bigger another good surprise. The stand is great. The cons are simple. one the spacer is lose and its inside is cut a little wide. Two the handle is hardwood which is great but the paint finish does not go all the way up the handle. Three the fake leather wrap is not secured at both ends ( a few good swings and the wrap started to unravel not cool). Four and this is what really gets my goat the Engraving is good but the darkening agent that was used has worn off in a few areas. But the blade is great cut throw a sweet-gum tree that was about 2 inches thick like butter. Five the scabbard is hard wood but inside is coverd in a waxy goo that is what i think pulled the die out of the engraving so I have decided to put my sword on the display that came with it and lay the scabbard in front of it as display. With a little work on the handles warping it will not only look good but be ready for the vampire, zombie apocalypse.
This sword was beautifully made and engraved. It's sturdy, strong, and awesome. It even came with its own stand! Note that the sword does not come sharpened, but can be easily sharpened once you have it.
I got this sword as a graduation gift in 09 and i have to say this thing is very very verrryyyy heavy. no way she used this thing with one hand. No freaking way! I had to practice for about 4 months before i could hold it one handed without it hurting or causing me to use a lot of energy. The sword comes with a display and a wood sheath. The sheath broke after about 3 months of practice. I would say this sword is meant for display only lol. It's really hard to fight with but i am glad i gave it a try to tell those of u who would like to practice with it. over all it is a really awesome sword ^^
First off, as several people before have stated, this thing is a lot heavier that expected (no way Milla Jovovich is using this thing one handed). Over all is a beautiful sword and a nice buy for anyone that was a fan of the movie (Iâ€™m sure thereâ€™s a couple of them out there). <br />My biggest issue other than the weight is the sheath. It is basically just a shaped, hollow piece of wood thatâ€™s smoothly painted on the outside in black with the same symbols that are on the blade painted in silver. The real issue is the inside of it, with is just bare "wood", and with some kind of gooey, greasy stuff inside (not protected grease/oil for the blade). Every time I sheath the blade and then draw it, the blade is smudged with some kind of gray goo that needs to be wiped off or else it gets dry and crusty and it has a tendancy to get into the ingraved symbols on the blade. Over all though, its a beautiful display piece and comes with a simple, but very nice stand that can sit on a flat surface or be hung on a wall.<br /><br />Also just so everyone is aware, the blade is not sharp, but then again I never expected it to be.
Just got this sword,seems very sturdy made and durable.designs are only on one side which dosn't bother me.not that it's not sharp but is pretty heavy.<br /><br /> Like another sword I got it seems to have some kind of wax in the tabard so everytime I pull out the sword I have to wipe it off.still I think for anyone who either likes the movie or wants a unique weapon I think this sword was worth the price.
This is one of the best sword I got so far and only cost $60.00, I had brought sword that cost 3 times more and is nowhere near perfect as this one. For one is heavy and sharp, two is a thick piece of steel as hell, I can almost say all my sword even those that worth 3 times more ( cabon steel, stainless steel, carbon steel 1045 , 1060 all of them) and if I bang them together in a sword fight, this sword will break them all in half.<br />Definitely one of the best sword I got for its price, this sword prove to me sometimes price doesn't always means quality. In this case cheap price can still get you something very good while my other more expensive sword doesn't always equal better quality.<br /><br />I just wonder if this is really the sword they use for the movie, cause I doubt it since it weight at least a good 8-10lbs<br /><br />This can be a very nice gift for anyone, for the price and its look.
This sword is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! It is very heavy as the other reviews say but very well made. I saw no problems with the leather wrapped handle at all. Excellent detail with the engraved writing. I was a little surprised that the end is angled but it is not at all curved. A definite buy for a fan of the movie.
this sword is freakin awesome! huge as hell, heavy as hell, and completely bad ass. perfect show peace and if ever put in the situation...you can cut a mutha***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!
really only one disappointment the tip of the blade is supposed to be square NOT ANGLED !! also leather on handle not supportive enough for twirling.
Yes I agree the blade does look cool.<br /><br /><br />To those who want to remount the sword in nice fittings go for it, the sword is compatible with with katana guards and hilts and is single pegged, although the tang has much to be desired (rather short) I didn't expect it to be good.<br /><br /><br />To everyone else: Do not buy, even for a display this is a piece of.... well you know. For the price I expected a better display piece. The wooden stand the sword comes with is however of nice quality and is now supporting one of my other swords.<br />If only they had spent the money on the sword and not a display stand this piece may have been nice.<br /><br />Now you ask why is this sword no good. Well to put it simply the sword is sharp and the handle is of ultra low quality that if not handled with caution will have you end up in a hospital getting your fingers or a toe re-attached. <br />The leather is slippery and is not fastened or even tied to the wooden handle. Double sided tape does not count...... <br /><br />An no I did not hurt myself on this disaster waiting to happen, i disassembled it.
alright i got this sword today and wow its schweet shorter than id like an a little heavier on more toward the end of the blade its wider the further toward the tip mine came sharpened whn i opened the box the leather wrappings was loose at the handle bt super glue well fix it a great buy
Very nice. Large, heavy but not to unbalanced.<br />The handle is made of leather wrapped around black stained/painted wood.<br />The blade is not actually a rectangle like i thought it would be, it actually gets wider as it goes down away from the handle.<br />They made the case so it would compensate for this.<br />For those wondering, it includes a display stand and the sheath. Both are made of wood, painted black. The stand has Red...um....velvet maybe?..where the Blade is suppose to rest.<br />The symbols are actually painted on the sheath as well as engraved on the sword itself. The same symbols.<br />Symbols are only on a single side of the sword, but that is okay.<br />The end of the sword is also angled, so it is easy to tell which direction the sword is suppose to be held.<br />Instead of a 90 degree angle, more closely related to about 100-110 degrees.<br />The sword fits firmly into the sheath, maybe a bit to well, takes a little effort to remove, but nothing significant.
This sword is absolutely stunning! It was ordered for me for my birthday. The engravings are beautiful and the blade is really sharp. My favorite sword ever! Fast shipping and handled well. Thanks guys!
The only good thing about that crappy movie was her awesome sword. It totally steals the show. Unlike most of the replica swords, this one is much bigger than you expect. It's huge, sturdy, and is actually a great sword. The engraving is only on one side if you are wondering, and I love the thick scabbard it comes in too. Definitely one of my favorites, (the sword, not the movie) and at a great price.
Very nice piece, resonably sharp...but the two best things about this sword is that it is fully custumizible, meaning...i took off the handle which was held together with two wooden pegs, the leather cord, and wood glue, but it fits perfectly with katana Tsuba, Tsuka, brass and everything. <br /><br />On the other hand the engravings come blackened, but if you wipe to clean the blade the coloring goes away but still well visible.<br /><br />Full tang, around 3 lbs. Makes no noise when cutting because of no blood groves...A-
Just got Violet's sword today and all I can say is WOW!!<br />The quality and size of the sword just blew me away.<br />Flawless no dings or scratches.<br />Anyone who has watched the movie and loves swords needs one of these!!
It is very heavy and awkward to handle, but the thing looks sweet sitting on my bookcase. A few dings on end of blade but that actually made this blade look cooler somehow. Very sturdy and pretty well made. I would recommend this product and site to anyone. You wouldn't believe the amazing customer service this company has.
This sword is a beautifull work of art. It is very detailed and rather large. it is also very heavy so there is no possibility of technical finesse. It feels like a large claymore and could do some serious damage in full swing, not that you would ever beat up such a beautifull sword. I ordered it on a friday and recieved it on a satarday. Less than 24 hours im not sure how thats even possible. anyway in closing, i dont want anyone to order this sword because i want to be the only person in the world to have one.
good movie, hot chick and one cool sword. my first buy from true swords. and i can say im happy about it. my sword came today and im already buying something else..... you go true swords
Extremely pleased!!!!! OMG!!!!! Best sword i have ever bought. I'm a big sword collector and this is by far the BEST sword i have ever owned. A must buy!
Very cool sword! The engraving, the sheath....the whole ascetics of sword is very sexy. Highly recommend getting this one. Sword has definite weight to it, but I don't plan on going into combat. This is a work of art that should be appreciated. Happy to have this and True Swords is truly one of the best priced sword outlets I have found. Overall, the sword rocks and True Swords delivers on the goods. Out of the three swords I ordered only one left me disappointed and at the prices you can't complain too much.
A blade that has me searching for imperfection and not one has been found. The handle side is light while the blade is HEAVY. Balance is ignored when you feel its comfortable grip and see the engravings and the matching sheath, also the sword dose not fall out of the sheath. Weather for display, fighting, or training the pre-sharpened, beatifully engraved masterpiece is sure to get the attention it deserves.
This is a beautiful work of art. Blades are extremely sharp sheath is made of wood. The display stand was missing the hardware to assemble it; however, the dealer is shipping me the hardware. Excellent sword to use for strength training, as its handle is long enough for 3-4 spins (depending on your hand size). Over all an A+ item.
I got my sword about a day ago and I can truly say that it's good sword, not a great sword or an excellent sword but a good sturdy, sharp sword. The sword is not very well balanced. The blade is much heavier than the handle, but if you get the feel for it handling it wont be a problem. The end piece on the handle is not made of metal as advertised. It's made of ether wood or hard plastic I'm not sure, still cool none the less. The pros out weigh the cons with this sword. Like I said it's sturdy, sharp, all the pieces are tight and don't jiggle or rattle around and it's cheap. A cool sword indeed.
This sword is freaking awesome!!! Even though there were some small errors I saw, nothing could surpass this sword in it's might.
Awesome sword! The etchings on the blade looks nice, it has a nice weight, good length and size. I even like the sheath it comes with.<br />This sword is a must have!!!
ive fallen in love with this sword!! its alot bigger than i thought. the width and length of the blade are sheerly amazing!! some people complain that its hard to get in and out of the sheath but after a few times it goes like a charm. this is a sheerly amazing sword.
AWESOME! the edge is very well done and the engravings are accurate. i love this sword even though i havent seen the movie. scabbard has exquisite detailing
Good sword, very nice. A bit heavier than I thought, but it's still really nice. It was however somewhat dirty (dirt encrusted) and a bit banged up near the tip. It's not razor sharp but it's sharp enough.
this is a very unique sword.<br /><br />the blade is nice, and bears very few faults. the engravings are very well done.<br /><br />it feels very solid. though the weight distribution doesnt encourage practical use. though, this nice blade shouldnt be used in the first place. but by its feel i wouldnt be surprised if it held up well.<br /><br />the hilt is as it should be. nice leather wrap and plain design. the pummel doesnt feel as heavy as it should be, and feels more like wood than metal. if it were weighted more, this balance overall wouldve been improved, i feel.<br />the "hanguard" or where one would be, is the biggest shortcoming. metal, on the good side, but doesnt fit snuggly around the blade, just barely exposing the wood of the hilt.<br /><br />the scabbard fits tightly. it is as wide as the blades widest point, obviously. a little grove at it move centers the blade while in place. the scabbard is nice with painted characters matching the blades.<br /><br />the stand it comes with is sufficient. no lacquer finish, and the logo appears to be a sticker. however, one doesnt buy this sword for its display stand.<br /><br />conclusively, this is an excellent sword i recommend. no doubt it is one of a kind.
The blade is awesome. Love the sword, I don't know if its just mine, but the sword is extremely hard to get in and out of the sheath. I'm hoping that with use it will eventually wear down so I can get it in and out better. Overall, awesome sword
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST SWORD I HAVE BOUGHT YET. IT WAS ALOT BIGGER THAN I EXPECTED. THE BLADE IS STRAIGHT AND SEEMS TO HAVE NO FAULTS BUT ONE.....IT IS A LITTLE TOUGH TO GET BACK IN THE THE SHEATH DUE TO THE SWORD DESIGN. BUT, ONE THING I DO LIKE ABOUT THE SHEATH IS THAT IT IS WELL CONSTRUCTED AND WIDER THAN NORMAL ONES. EVEN THOUGH I WASN'T IMPRESSED BY THE MOVIE, THIS IS A WEAPON THAT EVERYONE SHOULD ADD TO THEIR COLLECTION. IT IS WELL WORTH IT.
