This Secret Agent tactical sword is one awesome piece of steel! The sleek full-tang design measures 27" overall with a heat-treated black baked finish. The 19 1/2" blade features fantasy cutouts, teeth-like serrations, a piercing point and slides smoothly into the included nylon sheath. The nylon cord-wrapped handle adds a sure grip for easy maneuverability. If there is a sword that screams to be picked up, this one is it!
It's an amazing design for a light weight sword although sheath needs improvement the first time I unsheathed the sword it cut through the stitching an filleted my hand open
very light and sharp, blade isnt that thick but for me thats a bonus. Tied into the molle webbing of my bug out bag adding little weight with a nice increase in capability. I wrapped the grip in hockey tape, this is a easy fix to the paracord issue that plagues swords in this category. Im not sure why people complain about the grips when it can be solved so easily. Heck, its fun to make your own custom grips on these things, I use the orange para cord but thats just me. A perfect utility sword for the back country, so light you wont even know its there.
i need to get 5 stitch in my foot because it was so sharp and I did not even sharpen it but it a great sword overall
Swords great. As soon as i put the blade in the shealth it ripped the side stitching out.
My dad came home with this "Secret Agent Tactical Ninja Sword" the other day. Sharp edge but going to strop it to give it a cleaner cut. Little flaw but i think of it more as character along one of the holes down the blade. Light weight but wish it was a little heavier, probably needs to be a bit thicker too. Handle is good for one or two hands. It's a must have for any collection. Sheath is but too flimsy but take a long thin piece of plastic and run it inside it'll stay. Great buy! (I got mine 2nd hand but know it came from you cause it has your logo on it and say's "BudK" on the box.)
I wanted to give this product a more thorough review. I am a martial artist with some weapons training. I bought six of these. These blades are great machetes. I have one that I use and abuse to test it's capabilites. To be good swords they need a bit more steel on them in terms of thickness and weight. The scabbards like everyone else's reviews are not very good. Some of the blades are extremely sharp and cut through the stitching on both sides of the scabbard. The rivets are the only things keeping them together. If they were made from a stiffer material like glass filled nylon or leather they would be perfect. Glass filled nylon with a molle system would be very useful as well. Some of the points were dull. I resharpened the edges and reshaped the points and work great. The wrapping on the handle is flimsy, but if you rewrap it and apply some heat it will harden the outside and prevent from slipping and come undone. Melt the end where it is tied off stop it entirely. This product still gets five stars from me. I enjoy using these blades. Just wish China didn't make them. U.S. would do a much better job and sold for much more.
great woods clearing sword but the wrapping sucks comes on tied n unwrapped even though i had to retie it several times
I wonder if real secret agent from Interpol or cia use this sword if not there missing a nice weapons
This is the best sword I own, the blade is pretty sharp, everything ive tried to cut with it, always cut. My only problems are, the handle wrap is very loose, and the sheath is very bad quality, the tip is so sharp it rips through it. Still a great sword
I bought this sword about 5 years ago from BUDK. I have had my ups and downs with some of the impulse buys on this website. However, this impulse buy was a great one. Other than the scabbard being very cheap, but easily repaired with the skills and/or tools, like a stud press. When you slide the sword into the nylon scabbard, the extremely sharp point tends to poke out of the side holes between the stainless steal studs. I don't remember if the gaps between the studs were stitched originally, but the gaps are now full open. It could be a safety risk to have the sword tip sticking out of the side of the sheath/scabbard. The blade is extremely sharp and the serrated portion is quite sharp as well and can do some serious damage when used as a machete. Also, the grip is nice. It is long enough to hold with two hands. I have large hands, and they both barely fit comfortably in the two-handed position. Buy one, or get the set of two. They are worth it.
My sword just arrived and I couldn't be more happy! I think all ladies should have one!! If you like swords this ones for you! Sharp, light, very well made. Got one for my husband he loves it!
I have 4 of them... But i reccomend wrapping the handles in hs 4-30-L, 425 600V 90C heat shrink found at your local electrical supply store... What a difference... I really like em now.
WOW!!! I just got this sword today along with the red guardian sword.I was very pleased with BOTH of them.They were very Sharpe straight out of the box.I have bought a lot of swords but this is my first buy from here.So all I can say is.I will be buying from here for now on.
Very sharp. Good fit in the hand. Sheath is cheap, make your own w/kydex, worth the low price.
The beauty of this sword is only matched by it's majestic brute force it puts out. I love it!
NICE SWORD, MY SON CHOSE IT OVER A CONVENTIONAL MACHETE ...HAVE NOT USED IT YET THO...WILL SEE THIS WEEKEND HOW IT WORKS. NOT SHARP OUT OF THE BOX BUT A BIT OF FILE AND LIGHT GRINDER TO THE EDGE AND ITS SHARP NOW. THE STEEL IS VERY HARD SO A GRINDER WAS REQUIRED. FOR THE PRICE I WOULD RECOMMEEND IT..YA CANNOT REALLY GO WRONG
Great weapon and at at a steal of a price. Its actually sturdy enough for practical use, and I'm thinking about getting a second one just to have!
This sword is great! This 27" steel weapon is working great for my Deathstroke cosplay! The sword arrived on time and securely in its box. The nylon sheathe covers the sword well and hasn't been torn or ripped. The sword looks great, but did have some residue on it from the plastic wrap it was in. It was an easy fix with some Simple Green. The sword is sort of sharp, but would need to be sharpened. As this was my very first sword, it was great! This price was amazing! $12.99 for something like this?!? AWESOME! Would I recommend this to a friend? YES!!!
Blade is Excellent, Very sharp and is well balanced. Holding it is very comfortable and overall feel is great
For a fun knife this is perfect. It looks cool as a display piece and is functional as a hacking or jabbing tool.
For only $13 this was a great buy and is really great at cutting down brush. If you expect an excellent sword, dont, because its $13. But, for the money it is totally worth it. My only complaint would be the loose cords for the handle but that is easily fixed.
This is the sword that Deathstroke uses in the tv show Arrow. Its a good sword especially for the price and nice to have sweet 'prop.'
I loved it. It was great. the only thing I don't like about it is that the cord for the handle it kind of slides. Other then that I think BudK Did a good job for such a cheap price I would recommend this sword to anyone, beginner or experienced.
I wasn't expecting much when I ordered a $12 sword, but man. This sword is the sharpest one I've ever gotten from Budk! The construction is cheap, but solid. The sword is one solid piece, blade and handle being the same piece of metal, making for a solid full tang weapon. Nylon cords are wrapped around the bottom part, which forms a surprisingly good grip. The bottom part of the blade is completely dull, but slice or stab something with the top and the sword will delivery. The only complaint I have is the sheath, which the sword immediately cut open from the side... I guess that's just a testament to how sharp this beast really is!
WOW!!! Hubby and I each ordered one and got the 2 for $24 price. We were really hoping they would be good quality and strong but wondered for such a bargain price. We are BEYOND THRILLED with them both. This is NOT a flimsy sword, do not let the price fool you! The handle with the braided para cord is actually really great for gripping. My hands are smaller being a female so I can put both of my hands on the handle like gripping a baseball bat. My husband can too but barely. It is everything they say it is and I'd gift these to anyone I know proudly! It is not flimsy like a machete which was our fear. There is a little give but this sword is strong! We buy BudK.com all the time, they have great products and fab prices. This SWORD is NO EXCEPTION!!!
First, the sword arrived quickly it came very sharp I would definitely suggest getting it!
This sword is bad**s!! It is the same sword used by Oliver Queen's mentor Slade Wilson in the show Arrow. Only he dual wields a pair of them! Bad**s swords for bad**s dudes!!!
I am a sword fighter and this is by far the cheapest sword i own. But for the price it chops clean. Is with stands alot i have put it trow the ringers. The case is not that great. But love paracord handle.
this sword is awesome i got it and it was razor sharp out of the box i would definitely suggest getting it!
I recently bought this sword and I was impressed! It comes sharp, its light, and its durable. My only complaint is the cord wrapped handle. The cord comes loose and gets annoying when it slips. If you replace the grip it would be perfect. Over all the sword is amazing. You need to buy this sword!
Absolutely one of The Best Swords ever Lightweight flexible and Lethal I just Cut through a watermelon Like hot knife through butter If you don't get this Sword Immediately You're an idiot You have a blast And it's great for survival as well.
Love the sleek design and feel. Love the balance about 3" from guard. A fast tight feel, easily a dual wield weapon. For the price it couldn't have been better, despite other reviews. It's great, for what you give. I bought 2, and now my girlfriend wants 2!
I use these and other BUDK swords/knives/daggers as props for fantasy photoshoots. BUDK always has the best looking stuff for the best price. Can't go wrong, especially when these were BOGO. Great Deal!
I bought one. Put it through a rigorous trial by fire and then bought another one. Al I can say is that I would hate to be on the receiving end of this sword.
great Product For The Price, Feels Great In Your Hand, Very Light And Could Be Useful For Quick Slashes And Flicks. One Of My First Purchases And IStill Love It.
I've purchased many items from BUDK and this is a very light weight and durable item. I'm thinking of improving the handle by removing the stock nylon cord, drilling two holes and installing a wooden piece on each side held by rivets to fit the hand a bit better.
I think its an amazing sword it was razor sharp out of the box me and a friend went and did some land scarping at his house 3 hours of use and still sharp. the only thing I would half to complain about is the sheath the floppiness of it was a draw back but other wise I would recommend it to all my friends.
Seriously cool sword cut down Three weeds within the first day Cut through the scabbard like some of the other review guys said But it is a really good Sword for $13!! It is just rocking I might even want to get another one because my dad used to Cut down a bush
Great sword. Better than I expected it would be for my 1st purchase.its all 1 piece which I love. The only problem is that it wasn't sharp but nothing that can't be taken care of...other than that, I cant complain at all im in love with it!!
This blade came pretty sharp and is very light but durable. Fun to pull out for guests and give them a scare because it does look quite mean. Highly recommend especially for the price.
This sword suprised me at how mean it looked. I love the weight (light enough for women to swing eaisly). My only complaint is the grip wrap and the sharp end of the handle, needs to be ground down a bit so it doesn't cut into the outside of your hand while swinging. Other than that, awesome and excellent service. sword :-)
The sleek design caught my eye. Equipped with air-holes this Baby is a beauty. Very light and durable. I love Bud k
I ended up buying one sword, and accidentally bought another, but was one of the best mistakes I've made in a while. This sword is extremely sharp, lightweight for maneuverability, and extremely slick. I am a sword collector, and this is a wonderful addition for anyone else who is.
For $12 it is an awesome sword. I love it and just can"t put it down. Although the paracord wrap could be better i would definitely recommend buying this.
Okay, so I'm not a sword fan, I'm a knife fan. Bowie knives, daggers, tactical pocket knives are usually my purchases. Tell you the truth, I just got sick of seeing this on the homepage and the catalogs so I finally bought one. When I opened it I had to wipe the excess oil off of the blade and as I did this, I saw how sharp this blade was. I took it outside and attacked some evil cans. It cut right through them. Excellent sword, might buy another.
Another absolute great bargain !! Thanks again BUDK !! keep em coming !! This is another one of those things you just have to own, what else can I say. !! If you miss this one, you will be sorry. -------------- roger p.
This sword is the coolest. As soon as i got it i was amazed at its sheer awesomeness. After i got over the fact that i was holding it in my hand i noticed though, that the para-cord on the handle wasn't as tightly wrapped as it could be. So i took off the rope and re-tied it as tight as i could, now it was perfect, well, almost. It was pretty sharp when it first arrived, so i gave it a good sharpening. Other than that this blade is light, strong, and awesome looking.
I just got this sword and it is very cool I love the way it feel when I am holding it and the design is awesome looking.
This is an AMAZING sword. pretty sharp. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the sheath. the tip goes through it pretty easily.
If you ever watch this show called ( Arrow ) . This is the sword Deathstroke uses in the t.v show ... Anyways, Great sword ! One Of my favorite swords I just had too buy two of them ! If you are looking for a good sword with low price this is the one !
I bought this sword for just great looks, but functionality is certainly present! It's lightweight, but most definitely sturdy. The only problem is that the handle wrappings slide around *some*.
Put this in your front hall closet, nobody is going to mess with you. This is so inexpensive relative to its look, feel and functionally, It is a winner!
I bought this sword and its a great weight very well balance and handle is BIG A+ LOVE IT feels like it belongs in my hands.
This sword was the first sword I have ever gotten, and the second item I have got for my collection. This sword is Legendary! It's sleek, it's beautiful, and it's SHARP!! This sword is so sharp, it actually cut through it's own sheath. This may sound like a problem, but not to me. It actually is a great sign of it's quality and sharpness! If you ever get the chance to buy this, DO IT NOW!!! thanks budk, I will continue to buy your products for many, many years to come
I picked this sword up because I wanted something a little better than a machete as I was going to be on the island of Lian Yu. This sword worked like a charm. The sheath fit perfectly on my back and I was able to draw it from that position without any problems. The blade has a good weight and can be swung easily with one hand. I highly recommend this blade for anyone who wants a good tactical blade that looks intimidating. This blade is now my go to blade.
ohh geez what can i say about this sword.. well lets start out with that beastly point, you could poke it into just about anything, now for that blade its decently sharp, the ideal trait of this blade i must say is the saw feature in the middle of the blade, its so ragged i couldnt beleive it when i ran my finger down it, definetly the highlight of the sword. the grip just feels right in your hand. so overall i would recommend this sword to anyone thinking of buying.
Great sword!!!!!got one for Christmas very solid and well forged. I will be going to budk agin.
I got two of these swords and let me just say they are very good. they cut through cans and bottles really well. i would suggest you buy this sword.
This sword is not very long, but it is very sharp. It would serve you well as a brush slasher, or zombie killer! The full tang creates great balance and strength.
This might just be the best 12.00 i have spent in my life. i got this for christmas, it came sharp, it was made of very thick steel, and just looked awesome! i decided to test its sharpness, so i took a plastic bottle full of water, threw it up into the air and swung! it sliced it right in half. this might just be the best deal you will find on a sword. anywhere!!!
You cannot buy a nicer sword for this price period...I could easily resale this for 40.00 to someone that hasn't seen it advertised. Great blade...can make it very sharp.
the sword comes surpriseling sharp. though can be made sharper. i was sticking it into blocks of wood with just the edge it came with. now the rope handle could be made tighter but i fixed it myself over all i give it a 86/100
ok i have 2 of these and iv had them for awail but never really used them then a few days ago my little brother and i had to clear out weeds and small trees and the weeds were thick enough they destroyied the weed eater we have so i pulled out those things and we cut through everything with ease 3-4 hits to get through quarter size thick trees and bushes so yes its a very sturdy metal and for the $20 i spent on 2 im very very happy with them... my bro used to say they were useless but after that he was like yea these were a good buy becuase they are usefull sometimes and now hes thinking about buying one
Excellent product made of very sturdy metal, a brilliantly designed sheath, and a perfectly formed rope gripe. Definitely a bargain!
Its badass overall sharp when it comes buy it now <br />one thing is its from [3rd party removed] it has the logo by the handle no biggie needs to be worth more
WOW! I bought this sword as my first buy from budk and it is WONDERFUL, This is a great sword and it came razor sharp, And a nice sized sword, I hope to get more items from The BUDK Catalog.
Lets just say i had My doubts about this sword when i first bought it, its really cool and very easy to swing around but when i got it sharp enough, its sharp! drop it on my floor and it stab it and made a hole O.O
I did buy this from true swords here. The price is what hooked me. I am very happy I bought it my friends and I love the handle-grip. But it is true my sword did rip though the sheath, but that also shows how sharp it is. All in all I would buy it again.
Absolutely great sword, just got it and it is duper sharp. The only concern that I had was that Fed Ex didn't exactly take the best care of it and it ended up with a hole in the end of the shealt, but if you where thinking about ordering it I would tell you to go for it.
I love this sword i bought it and it so light and it just all around great i think. i bought two of them and i feel so natural swinging these two swords i not to sure if they are meant for dual wield but sure as what i am using them for . for 12$ cant go wrong . 1st buy from budk and i will be buying from them again
Very good little sword, handle bunches up some, and the sheath is cheap, but all around the sword itself is great.
technology is great, this 9.99 blade shows it.<br /><br />i can sleep with it under your mattress without worrying about blowing my ear off!
I was disappointed. I didn't like the edge the sword came with. But with my stones, I fear the sword and so do my friends. I got it so sharp I slice through 2-liters filled with water, effortlessly. I recommend it to anyone who wants to buy, it's worth the $21.
This is an amazing sword, they could easily charge at least $30 for it it is INSANELY sharp and can easily go through at least 6 layers of cardboard stacked and 2 inches of it still stick out the back of the cardboard and I can't even explain how sharp the serrated part is, could easily cut down a small tree with the serrated part and with enough force could probably easily cut through bone (good for zombies, lol) amazing sword.
I finally got the chance to field test this sword last week. My brother needed some help clearing away the brush and trees growing in his yard. And let me tell you, $13 has not bought me more fun and satisfaction. I slashed through thorn bushes and honeysuckle almost effortlessly and even hacked down a two-inch diameter tree. The wrapping around the handle came loose quickly, but I replaced the wrapping with duct tape, so no problem. After the day was done, the sword was in need of a sharpening, but for the price, I don't think I could have found a more kickin' sword. Thank you BUDK!
I recieved this sword yesterday and it is so epic. It came super duper sharp and I slit my fingers on it. Its a solid chunk of steel and is rock solid. The handle is really nice which is wrapped in cloth type stuff. Budk is the best sword company in the world. By this sword!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This sword is amazing and is completley worth the money. The sheath is a real peice of sh**. Had for a week and already cut the small cord holding the sheath together. The sword itself is of amazing quality. I rewrapped the paracord on the handle and it stays perfectly.
Excellent buy, very cool and sharp, balanced and sharp excellent choice for all all collectors, I can't hardly believe I got this for 12.00! Wrapped handle becomes a little loose after use but you can put "JB" weld on the handle and re wrap to correct this small issue but this is a common problem with wrapped handles and should be expected.
This sword is better than hunting for gators on a Friday night! Oooo doggie! I reckon I'ma use it on one of em soon! Ya'll best be gettin one ya hear?
The sword was perfect...everything I imagined it would be... I re-wrapped the handle for a sturdier grip and it has not disappointed. Very sharp.. very intimidating.
Nice! I was doubtful when I ordered this but its a great sword for the money. Solid and sharp as well. I re-wraped the handle and its really solid and looks great.
Sturdy, good looking and sharp. As others have mentioned, the sheath is flimsy, but the sword itself is worth the asking price and perhaps a bit more.
Just got this today, so light and comfortable in your hand and pretty sharp. I cut the box it came in right in half soon as I took it out. Its Awesome.
I took this sword for a test... I smashed its blade into another sword....from bud-k it cut half way into the other sword... all it left was a little kink in the edge....it was soo small I could sharpen it out...now I've need way better swords... but for the price.. its well worth it....BTW this in not 1 piece of steel... its 2 the handle is welded on... its still good..and it does not come sharp.. But I must say that the steel is good.
Got this for my wife as her first sword. She loves it. She won't put it down! lol. Great sword, Great price! I want 1 now!
Just got this and must say...it is sweet. Though its dull and it came kinda stuck to the wrapping, both are easily fixed
This sword is amazing weapon, at least the one my friend has, we were messing around with it and it is quite sharp, he missed a swing and straight into my leg. I didn't even notice until he told me. It went in so clean and smooth I didn't even feel it. Great sword.
WOW!!!! What can I say! This thing is fantastic for the price. I used to get no respect around the neighborhood but now I'm like Mr. T, "I pitty the fool", everyone stays back. A word of caution however, you really need to keep the sword in the sheath until the last second, this thing screams Secret Agent Tactical Ninja!!!! The braided rope handle is not wrapped tight but it makes it easier to use the rope for other things like hanging up your laundry. Just unravel the handle, stick the sword in the ground, and tie off the other side. Good to go!
Good and solid blade. Great all around used for cutting branches with the saw blade. The blade did not come sharp but the saw did. Easy fix to sharpen on a grinder though, took only 5 minutes to sharpen.
I got two of these and they are amazing I love them, I love to go outside and start hacking at everything I see and it chops strait through almost anything up two two and a half inch trees. These are fully functional and do not dull quickly and sharpen easily. My biggest complaint is that the sheath is crap but I duct taped everything on the sheath and I have had no problems since and the only other complaint is that the handle wrapping comes undo within a week, but I wrapped it back up tighter with leather sting and the problem was solved. And the only other thing is that the tips will bend but you can bend them back easily by stabbing a tree and bending it the other way. These are fantastic swords and they are the best for the price. Another great one for budk, thanks.
Item received in a very timely manner. The item was sharpened without and signs of wear or scuffing. The price for this item was very awesome. I also agree that a rubberized handle would improve the control while extended the durability of the item. Overall, very awesome. I would recommend this item for any knife or sword collector. Thank you.
This is a really kick ass sword. it works great with ninja, modern, apocalyptic or any other type of cosplay. I love it.
This thing is awesome and actually sharp. Super light weight. Most logical is a fight for speed and size
This is one of the nicer pieces I have purchased from BudK. Though billed as a "secret agent" sword, my opportunities to engage in murder and sword fights are somewhat limited, so I decided to take it outside to work on some trees that were down. The saw serration on the bottom of the sword successfully sawed through a branch that was about 5 inches in diameter. The point survived several attempts at stabbing hardwood stumps and tree bark. The non-serrated sword edge was able to chop through various smaller green trees and branches, with no visible wear. However, the sword was dull out of the box, and had to have an edge applied before all this. Secondly, the paracord handle repeatedly slid up the handle while engaging in the more vigorous of these activities. This is an excellent piece, one of the finest I have purchased from BudK. It would be made exponentially better with a nonslip, rubberized handle.
Okay please budk the sword is amazing and I think it is better than most of your other swords, only thing keeping it from being the best of all of them is the sheath. The sheath is horrible. After unsheathing it once its gonna cut it and destring it and sewing it back up makes no sense because its just going to happen again...please please please pleasssssssse make a sheath for this one like you did for the timber wolf sword an abs hard plastic sheath and put it for sale for the hundreds like me that are head over heals in love with the sword and hate the sheath with a passion..(I usually make my own sheaths but they are all leather and nylon, but for this one it NEEDS a higher quality than just that.)
I got it about 3 months ago the shipping was really fast in 2 days it arrived. It came dull but that was fixed . Also its a great buy I think one of budks best swords. Light and feels solid I have no complaints what so ever . All in all its a great buy.
This is the best sword ever, I went out side to test the it out it was strong for its weight chopped soda cans, branches, and brush. Being my first sword I don't have any way of comparing if it's good or not. The sword was perfect still razor sharp, the only thing was cleaning it when I got it the plastic left glue, and came off with wd40. Fixed the sheath with staples and the sword doesn't cut the edges anymore when I re-sheath it.
I loved it, not sharp but that was an easy fix. I also re wrapped the handle cause it was kinda loose. I love the pattern it has so I didn't change it. I cut my self a few times and the serrations cut the side of the sheath, it doesn't slip out or anything like that just there's space where you can see the sword.
Awesome looking sword for a great price! Love the cutouts and weight of the sword too. Just bought it recently and it DID have some dried oil or something on it and wasn't super sharp either. But those are problems easily fixed in 5 minutes. Probably going to get another to get some double wielding action! Highly recommended sword!
Amazing sword! Looks great! Feels nice in your hands! Handle wrapped nice! Tested it on a liter bottle of water and it does the same thing as those other ninja and samurai swords that cost $100. Buy two! I will!
Love it!! It's beautiful good weight for swinging and cutting just wish it was a little bit long maybe 36" blade.
This is a great sword. Cuts wood, very light,and pretty sharp. Handle is comfortable. Only problem is the lent wrist band thing is to long. Can tighten. You get your money's worth.
This is honestly the best deal you can get it cuts tree branches like butter and just this morning I missed my target and hit my metal gate it left a nice sized slice in it but there is no sign of the hit on the blade.
This sword is awesome!!!!!!!! It is great for owning in the desert (Arizona) and is completely worth it! I have bought 2 and love them.
I have put this thing through a battery of tests, from beheading fish to clearing brush and it never disappoints. A definite if you want an effective, versatile machete.
Incredible sword. I used it to hack up some fresh meat the other day and it worked like a charm, although it was a little hard to pull out. The serrated edge is great for sawing through thick bones. You should definitely buy this if you are planning to do some hacking and whacking and slashing.
AWESOME SWORD! Solid, can be super sharpened and for the price it is a MUST HAVE!! Get one right now!!!!
I loved this sword. Pretty sharp out of the box cut down some branches with it but it dulled. Nothing a wet stone can't fix. The wrapping comes undone pretty easily as well but also easily fixed. I didn't really like the sheath at first but it allows for you to pull the sword out without making a noise. So besides the little negatives this sword is awesome and for a great buy.
Excellent buy for such a cheap price...I tend to stay away from budk items, but this one is excellent. Although like most will say, the sheath sides come apart but there is still clasps holding it all together. Although the handle is cheap nylon string, it holds well and has excellent grip. Not As sharp as I thought but could still very easily do a bit of damage....also it looks b****s as h**l.Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments.

Nice feature sword. The quality of the sword is excellent and we are extremely happy with our purchase. My husband is in sword and knife heaven today and I fear that I will not get him back anytime soon. This being our first purchase from BUDK we were not sure what to expect. The price is right, shipping is reasonable, and the products are of good quality. This particular sword is a must have and we will be back for more.
This is the number one item in my Zombie Apocalypse bag. Sharpened up nicely and does great damage to my overgrown Crape Myrtles in my front yard. I liked it so much I'm buying another for my kit, two hands two swords.
This sword hangs above my bedroom doorway, I fear for anyone who wants to break in..
I really like this sword, it is good for stealth. Not good for confrontation with other metal objects. The sheath was horribly pathetic. But for ten bucks it could have come without one for all I care.
when i opened my package up and saw this sword i thought how beautiful it is. the design is very cool and the blade is i pretty sharp True swords is very reliable
This sword is amazing it is pretty sharp I bought it for my brother but i am most likely going to buy one for my self, the shape is really cool. The handle is wrapped pretty tight so it wont come lose easily. It is really light weight. Buy it!
Alright, listen up. It came in 3 or 4 days, and when it got here, i couldnt have been happier. Sword is 27 in long, 1/8 in thick, and black; not grey. The black instead of grey was awesome. 4 of 5 on the sharpness. I took out a 2 in branch in one swing. And the teeth are mean, dont be too sloppy with it, you'll get hurt. If i knew what this what the deal was with this one from the start, i would've payed $50 for it. If your in for strength, it won't break unless you purposely try. 5 of 5 all round. I can't believe it was only ten bucks..
This sword is without a doubt the best sword on the site! Its sharp, sleek, and has the greatest design to it. This is definitely budk's finest blade ever, anyone who doesn't have this should place an order right away. The grip is perfect, the weight is perfect, the price is also perfect!...this sword is perfect and is truly #1!
Well, this sword is just great. Its wider than i thought it would be. I got it about half an hour ago, and I've been busy putting it through cardboard, wood, and just about anything i could find. The shipping was amazing, it took two days, and it came exactly when it said it would. For ten bucks, i couldnt have hoped for any more. I'd say this is a sword more for people who like to actually use it, and break what ever they see. Luckally, thats what i like in a sword.
This Sword is everything as advertised and better. Though not "razor" sharp, sword is sharp enough right out of the box. I hate how so many people feel you need a razor edge on every blade you have. The sharper the blade, the thinner the edge, and the easier it is to nick and damage. The feel, balance, and heft of the sword is spot on. The sheath, though listed as nylon, has a leather lining, which makes the draw of the sword very easy and very quiet (Perfect for sneaking up on any nefarious character). You just can't beat the quality of this sword for the price. My only regret is that I did not order more.
this thing is so much cooler when your holding it in your hand and you'll be satisfied completely with it.
this sword was great, just wonderful, and i reccomend it to anyone, the blade is a bit stick from plastic wrap, but its easy to cleam<br /><br />and also<br />Azuramin is always working on ROFL levels on the gnarly hangout [3rd party url removed]
Arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased with the sword. The sheath however, is absolute garbage but that has no bearing on my fondness for this blade. The cutting edges aren't sharp (which is to be expected) but having the serrated edge makes up for it and this baby was cutting down bamboo right outta the box. Great deal over all. Would highly recommend as a camping tool.
This sword is really sweet! It has a nice ninja look to it and has a nice sheath. Although not sharp at first, as most BUDK blades aren't, it easily sharpens and becomes a killing machine. The steel is of great quality. When it arrived, i don't know if it was the heat or bad oil, but the blade oil was sticky and left a weird residue on the blade. It easily scrubbed off, but was a little bit of a setback. Other than that great purchase, balance, quality, overall Great sword. BUDK rules!
NICE!! well balanced. replaced cheap braided handle. Next person who decides to enter my house to steal my goods will experience first hand how well made it is. Was actually burglarized two days prior to arriving. Should have ordered two days sooner for home protection
Best sword for under $200 Ive ever bought, well best machete would be more accurate (Ive spent A LOT more money on swords that don't even come close) the cord wrap is bad on this, if you untie the wrap it will expose two wooden shims taped to the handle, if you then feed the cord through the hole at the bottom with a knot on the end, run a bead of glue up each side of the wooden shims and wrap it horizontally (tightly) up the handle it will be a great wrap and very comfortable.
this was the first item i have ever bought from budK and i was 100% satisfied! i also got alot more weapons but this sword was my absolute favorite weapon out of all weapons i own. i loved this sword so much i got another it comes out of the box razor sharp both times i received them and i'm currently waiting for my next shipment of new weapons from budK thanks to this AMAZING SWORD!!!!!

This is a very nice blade, especially for the price. It is a good short length, feels sturdy, and very light. Slides cleanly in and out of the sheath. If sharpened a bit, would make a very handy, practical weapon.
Hello there Had this sword a few months now and thought now would be a good time to write a review so here it goes. The item arrived in amazing time exactly 4 days and early in the morn of the forth day. It came Well packaged and with no residue upon ether blade handle or sheath. The blade itself was a bit sharp but the teeth were exteremly sharp and caused some minor Injurys and taught a new sword owner a few lessons-chuckles- the tip how ever was Sharp and strong. the handle was only one of three parts i was unhappy with and that is because the wraped corded moved about... ALOT so i removed it and added a few layers of blade ducktape and problem solved. Then the sheath-sighs- the sheath as i have noticed on here the sheaths are always a big problem this one is no different the poor make splits easly and i have been stabed in the side when i sheathed it and the blade cut thru the fiber and in to my side anouther lession learned. as for strength it is slightly bent but i belive it eather arrived that way or was sat upon because i can not for the life of me bend it back it did how ever cut clean thru 3/4 inch PVC piping with a good wack which is honastly better than i expected from a 10 dollar blade... in terms of care it sharpened easly and holds its edge. The handle is big enough for two hands makeing it great for power and its blade from finger tip to elbow(blade only not handle) is short enough for close quaters but long enough to give you some reach...All in all its quality is a matter of Prespective while it did have problems it is after all only a 10 buck blade and for only 10 bucks its pardon my languge one hella good buy and worth every penny
WoW, Lightning Shipping! Ordered on Monday, Received that same Wednesday. I know it's Stainless Steel and not High Carbon Quality, but I am happy with with the product. It looks fierce and has a nice feel when holding it. For the Price you just can't beat it. The wrapped cord around the handle wasn't as loose as I thought it would be from the reviews I'd read, but I'm sure a drop of glue here and there would tightened it up just fine. I'm not looking to strike this against any metal objects, mainly for display and protection against unwanted intruders. For that, I think it will suffice nicely. The Sheath is definitly cheap, a buddy accidentally pierced the knife thru the side of the sheath as he was putting it back in. (and I was just about to warn him from the reviews I'd read.) I'll superglue it to fix it.<br /> All around happy with my purchase and think you would be too.
Ok so pulled the box out today and the box was squished but the item was perfect condition. Everything on this sword is amazing, the look, feel, weight all perfect, it seems a bit small but its actually perfect as well. The point is actually really good, the blade itself not so sharp, but easy to fix that. Overall awesome buy, i may get another one. ;)
Loved the style of the sword,its well worth the money.it did not arive very sharp but that was easily fixed.dont care very much for the sheath, but i only use it to safely store the sword.the wraping seemed to ride up alot with every couple swings, i simply super glued the top umm...string and it's worked fine.Great sword for so little cash

I loved the sword it was sharp and dangerous, it is good size and it is really cool looking how ever the sheath i wasn't really happy with... the sheath was kind of Bad i liked the fact that it has a back strap but it is an okay sheath but other than that the sword it self is amazing THANKS BUDK
This is a well designed sword. Came right out of the box sharp, and the shipping was fast. The sheath isn't that bad and the wrapping on the handle will get lose, but if you tighten it using the extra cord coming off the handle(I had about 6" of slack cord) you shouldn't have a problem. Buy two, they look epic hanging on the wall going across each other.
I just received this sword a couple days ago and its really cool. just a little sharpening and it would have been perfect.
A great sword, a little smaller than I expected, but that's ok. I cut the strings on the bottom and wrapped the cord in electrical tape then threw the sheath away. One of the best swords i own.
I just got this sword and it amazed me right out of the box. Its incredibly light weight. All it needs a little sharpening and its perfect.
Ok. So I ordered this from true swords two days ago. Their shipping is very precise (although the box was damaged just a bit). For some reason, I forgot what I ordered so the package was a surprise. <br /><br />Review: This sword is totally awesome! It looks super fearsome and when it is swung, it makes such a cool "swishing" sound. <br /><br /> My only problem with it was that it is 440 stainless, which I hear is somewhat weak metal and I tested it by hitting one of my tensa zangetsu (another order from true swords. AMAZING!) against it at the bottom. It dented a bit but not as much as Zangetsu did. So I don't plan on using this for fighting metal on metal. Probably just to cut tree limbs off and stuff.<br /><br />Overall: This is quite a buy and it is definitely worth the $10.00 plus shipping.
Great sword. i have spent more money on other swords and got worse swords. its very light, sturdy and well made!! sharp too! definitely worth it
For the money, these are amazing swords. I purchased a pair of them and have been absolutely blown away by their ability to hold an edge and take substantial abuse. After a bit of sharpening, my friends and I were swinging them through jugs of water without even feeling the impact: the top halves of the jugs just fell straight down into the bottoms. Overall, fantastic work, Trueswords. If you're debating purchasing these or not, just buy one. It's ten bucks, and it may turn out to be the best ten dollars you've ever spent.
awesome sword. I got it for christmas and it feels great to hold, easy to swing, and is really light. The only things bad about it are the cord on the handle that slides a bit when swung and the sheath sucks.
When holding this sword, the question of "Who's The Boss" is answered very quickly. This sword is mean as h*** and just by holding it one can feel the tremendous power this sword emulates. This is NOT a toy; ladies and gentlemen, this is a man's weapon. Don't let the amazing price fool you... This sword is crafted finely and has a blunt shrewd feeling to it. Wielding this sword will leave no doubt it anyone's mind that YOU are the boss. Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate materials.
a very high quality sword for its price, sharp, surprisingly durable and extremely well balanced
From the description and ratings... I say awesome sword! defiantly something i'm gonna buy! looking forward to add as a starter in my swords and knives collection. luckily i'm right handed... i have a broken arm. Budk's AWESOME!
I was surprised at how great this sword actually felt to hold. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs a medium-short blade for practical regular use. Great for camping!
there the perfect size and the cord grip is nice.only thing is that they came with some sort of adhesive from the packageing but it rubbed off fine and they are great swords and cheap too
Awesome. Delivered quickly (4 days, not counting Sunday and the Labor Day Monday).<br /> This is basically a glorified (remember, I said "awesome") machete, since it can also double as a survival tool - serrated section on cutting edge, plus blunt serrated area on opposite side make it handy for sawing wood in the field. I DON'T, however, recommend "chopping" with it as any thin material, even stainless steel, could break if used improperly. Get an axe if you need to chop! (You know, the headsmen/executioners of old eventually switched to their iconic axes instead of swords because a sword often required more than one strike to do the job...)<br /><br /> Very lightweight, but not cheaply so AT ALL. Full-tang (meaning one solid piece of metal), as you can see in the picture. It was sharper than I expected, but you should still have at it with a whet stone (which must be oiled) or "V"-shaped carbite sharpening blades to improve the factory edge (NOT the serrations, which are already sharp and would require a different tool). <br /> - A little sidenote: I have never been able to sharpen ANYTHING. I don't know what my problem is, I always failed. But THIS sword (shortsword) began to take a keener edge right away! Haha! <br /><br /> The sheath has a backstrap, which I'm all about (a backstrap system for my katana was among my order...) and it also has the means to hang from a belt. The sheath itself, however, is nylon and it bends when empty on your back making it hard to resheath the blade. If the sheath had been solid, molded plastic or even wood, this would have been perfect. It draws lightning-quick (!), it's just that whole putting it back in while still on your back thing... The nylon sheath IS very well-made, though. Much better than other reviews here had led me to believe.<br /> I also love the corded-wrap on the handle. I have a survival tanto with the same wrap/braid.<br /><br /> All-in-all, I give this 5/5.<br /> Actually, 10/5 since it was only $10!!! Great addition to the 2012 stockpile! Remiscent of "The Book of Eli" weapon Denzel carries. Short (well... not THAT short! 27.5 ") and good for close-quarters.<br /><br /> My first purchase from Trueswords - the first of many!
Its a very nice sword for 10 bucks. the only complaint i have is it had like these glue spots but thats a easy fix. overall its sweeeeeeeet
truely a beautiful cuting sword i was impressed i've always want this sword i used to se this sword all over the internet and i now finally have it and i love it its pretty sharp but the nylon handle moves to much when i swing but its a great blade i recommend it to ANY! sword lover
This sword is amazing. This picture might be good, but its much better then it looks. Even if you didnt want this sword, for 10$ you should buy it.
Out of all the swords and knives I own currently, this one is my favorite one. I love the black finish, the sharp edges, and its perfect balance.
Better than all the 20 dollar swords I got. Bigger than i expected but thats good. Even the teeth are sharp.
its a bada** sword and the lightest sword i ever owned. Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate materials.
It was a beautifull sword to add to my collection. But sadly the nylon cord that was wrapped on the handle moves around a bit when swinging. But overall A Very very nice easy to manueverable blade.<br /><br />I am looking forward to future purchases from True Swords.
I bought this as one of the first swords for my collection, and i was extremely pleased. I've had it for years now and it has yet to show any signs that it isn't brand new. It has a good size, length, and weight to it. I don't use it to clear brush or anything, just to sit in my room and look cool, or maybe kill a scorpion every now and then. Overall one of the best purchases I've made, well worth the cheap price of 13$! I recommend!
It Was Okay Really Nice However, The Tip Bent But Was Easy To Fix The Only Reason It Bent To Begin With Was It Got Stuck In A Tree (Don't Ask) Could Have Been Sharper Also The Wrapping On The Handle Was Abit Lose So I Rewrapped It Tighter And The Plastic Ribbon Under Eventually Ripped And Came Undone But Electrical Tape Makes A Great Fix Abit Shorter Then Expected However An Excellent Short Sword And A Great Buy.
very impressive weapon it does its job well very quiet and very fast striking but the handle could have been wrapped tighter other than that it is awsome
Great item! Everything about it is perfect. Except one thing - The nylon cord handle. When I swing the sword, the cord wrapping moves out of place a bit. I think it just needs to be tighter. It's not a big problem. Also, the sheath isn't all that great. It doesn't really have sides, the sword can poke out when your trying to slip it in. But I don't care about the sheath, I bought this to hang on my wall. So I'm not including the sheath in my rating. Just the sword, which is completely awesome!
pointy as hell, lightweight, cant beat it for the price its like a mini machete fun to play wth in the back yard sheath is garbage though but who care you'll almost never have it in there
Some people are saying that the string wrapped around the handle comes off. And it does but all you have to do is wrap it in electrical tape and it works just fine.
Well, At first, there was a bit of a shipping issue (but that was on my part, as I specified the wrong address), So I had to pick it up, via fedex, however, it was shipped extremely fast, and the quality of the blade, was outstanding for the price.<br /><br />I HIGHLY recommend anyone to get this.<br /><br />The only downfall, is the sheath, as it's not exactly something you could use to quickly draw it out.<br /><br />That, and the backstrap is a bit small.<br /><br /><br /><br />This is my first buy with TrueSwords, and (after i fix my address), it definitely won't be my last!<br /><br />:)<br /><br />5/5 !
This weapon is awsome! Its shealth could be a lil better but it was a great buy. and the price is freakin amazing. I suggest this sword.
Okay, so I just got this sword and I have to say it exceeded ever expaectation i have of it. It doesnt move around much in the sheathe like other people have said and the added back strap on the back of the sheathe is a nice added touch but not to useful if you have a large back that it has to stretch across. I've taken this thing out of the sheathe a lot since it got here and the only problem i have is that the sheathe wants to go with it b/c it is pretty flat. But everything else is just right next to perfection. Thank you trueswords and I will definantly be coming back for more 5 outta 5 10 outta 10 however you want to look at it...buy this sword
Very impressed with this specific blade! Not only is it beautiful to look at but also very fun to use! <br /><br />I simply adore this specific blade and the price is just plain amazing! I'm going to enjoy using this for filming and practice in general. It's a gorgeous piece of work!<br /><br />6/5 =D
As soon as I got the sword I was shocked, it was a beautiful buy. It comes pretty sharp and has a great blade length and weight to it. I am extremely satisfied with this sword. I would suggest it to people who like to camp.
Great item comes pretty sharp the look of the item is amazing the wraping could have been a little tighter.<br />And the sheath could have been leather or something else cause the blade cuts it if your not careful.
I bought one of these for my girlfriend... she loved IT. i was completely surprised at how cool it was.. so i ordered one for myself... of the 9 or 10 swords i have this one is on the top of the list next to my katana... sharp light weight.. sturdy .. and attractive looking.. i made my own leather sheath cause the one it came with just wasn't up to par.. over all 5-5.

I must say, these swords are awesome! They're more lightweight than I thought they would be, though also shorter... When I pulled them out of the packaging, they had some strange Damascus-style imprint on them, but it comes off over time, leaving nothing but ridiculous efficiency and a definite feeling of power when you hold them. These are my new favorite training weapons. Bud K, You've made a mutha f***ing fan out of me.... Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate materials.
this is a great sword, i am very pleased with with it, sharp, and is so much fun to have, GREAT BUY an absolute steal for $20!!
Freaking Awesome Sword. Great one piece extremely solid and sharp. Cut through many things with this great sword. Reminds me of sword from Book of Eli...... So awesome. sheath is weak and floppy but i base this on what i was paying 4 and that's the sword.
This wass my first order from trueswords and I can say for sure I will be buying again. I ordered this and another item on Sunday at 8pm, I got it on Tuesday at 9am. This particular sword is great. It had a few finger print blemishes on the sword, but nothing a clothe couldn't fix in a few seconds of rubbing. The edge itself was not sharpened, but thats ok cause the point and the jagged edges were all very "pointy". I cut my finger on the tip when I poked it. I wish the sheath wasn't nylon though. I tore through part of it when I first got it. While I said the edge wasn't sharpened, it still had enough to it that it cut through.<br />Other than the finger prints and the sheath though, this sword is amazing. I would recommend this to any person with mild experiance and the price is great! Payed much less than it should be worth.
Coolest sword i've ever purchased. Looks great and for the price you better believe its gonna get some action. I love me a good deal and 10 bucks is a steal. It didn't seem too resilient. i see it breaking if I slash incorrectly. If True Swords takes requests I say make this knarley piece in 1060 like their better blades and I'd be first in line, make that twice.
I bought two of these and they are extremely sharp and definitely make you feel like a badass. For the price this thing is 100% worth it!!<br /><br />Great buy!!
what else can i say but what a cool sword and for a great price. has pretty good weight, could have a higher center of gravity for a more controlled swing and needs a little sharpening but all in all an excellent buy. my pals have all been impressed by this one. it just looks and feels mean, without crossing into "corny" like some swords look pretty awesome but just a little silly? not this one. its all mean.
Just received this sword as my test order with True Swords. It's just what I expected. Good balance, not knicked or warped, sharp enough and tight wrap on the handle. It's a good multi-functional piece. I will be a frequent customer of this company. I highly recommend this piece.
First of all, This Sword is wicked. And not only does it look good, it keeps an edge, works as a machete, and cuts through thick cardboard like paper. wielding two at the same time looks awesome. also this is a good costume item.
This blade was precisely what I expected for ten dollars or so.<br />I'd estimate it's overall weight to be about 20 ounces, and it came with a machete' type edge that I was able to turn quite sharp using careful strokes with a flat file to get the right angle, progressing to a standard 'Smiths Knife And Tool Sharpener', and then finishing off with a standard Chefs steel.<br />This is stainless steel, so you're not gonna screw it up with a grinder, either, as temper isn't an issue.<br />Me, I just like to work things by hand so that I can visually check my progress and be able to feel the developing edge as well.<br />The serrated edge section toward the handle of the blade was actually decent, and all I did was take a few burrs off that configuration with careful strokes from the Chefs steel.<br /><br />The sheath is just a piece meant to keep the blade at your side. I tend to slip a long blade scabbard through my belt at an angle that provides balanced carry and easy draw, so I could care less about high quality in that department.<br /><br />As a thrusting and slashing tool, this blade is efficient.<br />It is NOT a sword, and really not quite a machete'.<br />If you think of it as a rather large piece of cutlery that is surprisingly easy to wield, you wont be far off the mark.<br /><br />The nylon braid that serves as a grip surface on the handle can be pulled back tight toward the butt of the handle and a bead of liquid super glue applied at the beginning of the wrap (toward the blade tip) will keep it tight.<br /><br />Again...this is NOT a sword or a machete' and don't even think about cleaving through anything more than brush, or in a self defence scenario doing much more than highly effective thrusts and some damaging slashes...with relative ease of handling.<br /><br />For the price, you've basically purchased a piece of stainless steel stock that someone has been kind enough to shape for you and give you something to encase it in.<br />That's all I wanted, that's all I expected, and that's what I got.<br /><br />Any good machete' is gonna be something like 'Cold Steel' quality and will easily run half a hundred, or more.<br />(worth every dollar)<br />And any decent full tang beginners long blade is gonna start close to a hundred dollars, with the more you are willing to pay after that...being an assurance of comparative quality, dollar for dollar...providing that you take care to buy from a reputable blade company.<br /><br />True Swords, in my opinion, will put steel in your hand (quickly... in most cases) with quality matching the price.<br />Am I pleased with my purchase?<br />Indeed. Stainless steel stock is NOT cheap.<br />Shaped stainless steel stock, with a workable handle, and a sheath to carry it in...is a very good deal at 9.99 plus.
This is one of my first swords. It was worth the price, it may only be one hunk of metal but it is amazing. I wish i had bought 2. It did come with some oil on the blade but it was easy to clean off.
This is such a awesome looking blade! The sheath as you may have read, really sucks, but I didnt buy it for the sheath! There is nothing wrong with this sword! the handle is a little loose, but no big deal, its an easy fix!
I am a sword collector with over 100 swords and 300 other knives and this is my favorite sword in my collection, like other people have said the wrapping on the handle is a little bit of a problem but just thread the extra string thats hanging off through the whole a few more times tie it and tread it again etc. and it wont give you any problems its sharp lightweight and easy to swing i would recommend this sword to anyone and for $13.00 its a steal
wonderful and has great balance i would recomend it for minor cutting as well as for a mini machette great at cutting meat if you know how to with a sword.
Very cool little swords and amazing value for the price. I bought 2. I was expecting a very thin machete, but it is actually quite sturdy. The nylon cord wrap was a little loose on both of them. That was the only thing that was cheap about them. I might try wrapping another layer of something over them, like some hockey stick tape maybe. Still, I'm debating buying a back-up set I love them so much. $12 to feel like a total badass, you can't go wrong!
For the price, the sword is amazing. Great blade and edge, looks cool, and feels nice. When I use it, it isn't too heavy or too light.<br /><br />The cord wrapped around the handle comes undone too easily, but securing it tighter works well enough for me.<br /><br />The sheath is probably the only thing needing improvement, and it by far needs improvement. It dones't necessarily fit across the back, especially if strapping up two of them, and when the sword is drawn, the sheath is flimsy and no longer straps securely to the body. Drawing and sheathing the blade are a pain also, as it's not necessarily smooth. If you figure out how to fix that problem, tell me, please. It's such a pain.<br /><br />Ovarall, the sword is amazing, for show or general use.<br />The sheath, well, thats another story.
fantastic buy.... just what i expected, sharp but i sharpened it more so i can cut a apple in mid air.. but for the price it is a great buy
Very nice, strong and sharp. I sharpened it for an even sharper blade. Well worth the price. The sheath is very cheap though.
I LOVE IT. there is no dulling the blade on it unless i use it and i don't plan on killing a man so i leave it as is. but the look and feel i get while holding it i could only imagine what it could be used for. and how it would be used. i just love it. i have used it to cut things to show my friends how sharp it is and that it can rip and cut if they were to be stabbed by it. i just love the sword nice buy.
When I pulled this out I instantly fell in love with this sword. It is a great buy and anyone considering it should not hesitate.<br />Cons:<br />Doesn't say the type of steel used in production.<br />The strap is very cheap.<br />The nylon cord on the handle isn't very tight.<br />Pros:<br />The blade is sharpened fairly well.<br />The steel doesn't seem too brittle or springy.<br />The sheath is also fairly nice.<br />The black paintjob makes the blade very sleek.<br />The steel isn't thin and flimsy.<br /><br />Overall I'm really happy with this sword (especially since this is my first purchase from Trueswords, and won't be my last) and if any of you reading this are thinking about it, then buy it; you won't be dissapointed.
this sword is a very awesome sword every thing is nice but one thing win you start to mess with the sword the lacing on the handle will start to loosen
I finally received my 2 swords today. I am very happy with the purchase. The swords look amazing. They had a little bit of an oil residue on them but nothing a little buffing can take care of. I am not really excited about the sheath, but it would have looked nicer with something alot more solid. I would definately recommend this sword to any sword collector....Thanks BUDK!!!
This sword is lightning quick due to how light it is. It is not a very long sword but it looks hella kewl. The sheath sux because, it gets stuck when your trying to put it in there. also, the sheath had mold or something when I got it. but, I'm totally happy with the sword and it was a good deal. BUY THIS SWORD!!!!!!
This item is awesome, great weaght, nice durability, the only flaw is the sheath its a piece of crap. otherwise great item worth buying and i chopped through 6 inches of wood with this sword.
Awesome sword! The handle is wrapped very well, the Nylon cord that extends from the handle is longer than the picture shows but thats easily cut to a shorter length. Great buy, especially for the cost of this sword.
the sword itself is fantastic, a dull edge though, but the tip and serations definately make up for that fact, the nylon sheath it comes with is shit quality but it is a 12 dollar sword
Man this Sword is Awesome! Its Very Sharp and looks great. only cost $13.00 but could be sold for much more! All my friend want it and i just say its not for sale. My Brother was messing with it and cut up his hands when he barely taped it! Just shows how great this blade is.
My first buy and OMG!!! I love this blade! It is very nice, not bent, comes dull (which is good so you don't cut yourself or anything :D) but the tip is very pointy, overall, this is a great sword and strongly suggest to buy it!
i was very impressed at the quality and style of these swords (i got 2 (= ) the style makes them very very light and still durable the sharpness isnt fantastic but the point and serations more than make this sword a must buy
amazing sword, definitely my favorite, light weight and fast. the design helps for better movement while swinging it. its very durable and it can definitely take a hit. i have 3 now and i plan on ordering alot more, i cant get enough of this sword, the design is equally impressive. if your looking for a sword to buy. this one is it
Well about 15 secs after I opened it, the box it came in was completely destroyed along with a cpl other things i had laying around. I think even the larger picture on this doesnt do the teeth justice they can actually saw threw wood. What more can you ask for, for 13 bucks. Only regret was not getting one for the other hand. 5-5
hahaha u all are probably tired of me but i just sharpened my sword again and cut through an inch of steel. all that happened to my sword is a little cosmetic damage and it needed to be resharpened. i used this at a renaissance festival and people wondered if it was real so i asked permission pulled it out and threw it at a wall and it went in about 5 inches. so yup this thing sharpens well and im still happy and yes the sheath is crud but i reinforced it with ductape and cardboard rofl and i know i cant spell so deal with it.
There is literally nothing wronge with this sword it is amazing. It is sharp and it is awsome looking. I have friends that ask if it caught $100 and want to buy it for 70 dollars
Keeping in mind that real swords are thousands of dollars, this is a great sword! Just 13 bucks, and an awesome buy! It looks uber-ninja. my only complaint is the sheath, a little not-so-sturdy...
This weapon is my absolute favorite. It's very durable, nice size, easily swung with 1 hand because it is incredibly light. 2 of my other friends and I have personally purchased a total of 16 of these, not because they keep breaking, but because we want one wherever we are, whether it be our rooms, living rooms, vehicles, etc.
i didnt get this sowrd but it does have the same sheath as the one i have. the sheath is very nice but be careful puttingthe blade in because it will cut the threading since the seem is were the blade runs across. other than that awsome sheath.
hahaha i cut through my facet with this thing sharpened. i also cut down my neighbors tree (with there permision of coarse) so yup this thing owns! PS i post to much lol
Wonderful blade with a unique look compared to the average blade. Stealth was awful as everyone has noted. Very pointy, not super sharp but nothing a quick sharpening won't fix. Great for the price.
great blade!!! this blade is fantastic! the sheath actually has a strap on the back in case you want to put on your back. not too sharp but the point was reaally sharp.
This is intenese...especially for the price. It comes VERY sharp, so be careful pulling it out of the wrapping. There is no actual handle, I noticed, just a thin rope wrapped around the bottom of the blade. It's not a bad thing though, it's very tightly laced onto it.<br /><br />(sic) blade.<br /><br />5/5
Alright, this was the first sword I got here on BUDK. And to be honest, I'm glad I did. This sword reminded me somewhat of the new Rambo so I bought it Sure its one hunk of metal but it's great for show
wow thats all i can say way better then i thought .i thought it was a peace of crap but its better then i could ever think.its a must buy sword.lovvvvvvvve it
Okay maby I haven't received the sword yet but my so will LOVE THIS SWORD!<br />$12 for a full tang sword? He'll be fighiting his friends who also gave swords soon
dude i definatly need another one. i got it yesterday. its perfect for my style (twin short swords) it came with a little residue, but as stated by some it came off easy. its not all that sharp though, but thats fine with me cause i was goin to use it as a show sword and for a practice sword. the only problem is the sheath is flimsy, and u lose a star for that, but due to my surprise in quality of sword, i give the sword 6/5 which is a total of 5/5, ill be doin buisness with ya later to finnish my assasin outfit.
one more prob is that the string/strap/handle covering thingy is way to long... but i replaced it with balck leather and it still looks and feels great
this sword is not only fun to show off, it's strong enough to use on hard New England trees with out breaking. i love owning this sword
This is great little sword! How could you possibly go wrong for $12? I bought one of these and was totally impressed. I took it out to my sister's house who lives in the country and even she fell in love with it. It was her birthday so she made me give her the damn thing. Now I have to buy another one, but this time I might buy 2 or 3 just in case somebody else has birthday.
Basically just mix 300 with ninjas and you get this bad ass sword. The strap needs to be solid though not the flimsy cotton. I customized the stap anyway so it doesn't matter. Thanks Trueswords!
My advice is for $12 you'd be a moron not to buy this sword. The only downfall to this sword would be the sheath. The sheath isn't really made that good, you could easily cut through it if you put the sword in too hastily, but for the price the sheath shouldn't matter. The only other problem anyone would have would be the handle. It is good enough for average to moderate us, but if you plan on using it in extreme conditions there is a chance the handle can come undone (but there is even an upside to this). There is another layer of material under the cord and even if that goes out you can still use it because of the full tang. As for the sharpness of it upon delivery, the tip and teeth were extremely sharp, but the blade was not as sharp as i would have liked it to be (still sharp), but I personally like to sharpen my swords so i know just how sharp they are.
Oh how i love this machete. it has an extremely badass design reminiscent of movie villains. I took thing out and cut whole branches off of my backyard's flora (small branches but not twigs mind you). The rumors be true though the sheath is CRAP. complete and utter Crap. it split open the first time i pulled the sord out. oh well i need no sheath to combat the savages of the Minnesota jungles.
THIS HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE STRONGEST SWORDS I'VE EVER USED. I LOVE IT ESPECIALLY THE PART THAT LOOKS LIKE A SAW. EVEN THOUGH IT HAD SOME RESIDUE ON IT BUT THAT CAME OF WITH WATER AND A RAG. OTHER THAN THAT THIS SWORD IS A MUST HAVE
awesome sword design... the sheath leaves something to desire though. way too flimsily however after you pull out the sword.<br /><br />the sword's design is perfect in my eyes and if anyone wanted to do anything really with this sword, it seems that the blade is outfitted at some part to do it's job.
I orderd mine yesterday and it came today, I was supprised at the length of the actual size of the sword itself , it looks much smaller in the picture.<br />Overall its a must buy for 12 dollars
True Swords definitely has a new fan, I finally got some free time to write my review on this full tang Secret Agent sword.<br /><br />First off, let me just say this is a beautiful sword. I know that saying "you get what you pay for" but not in this case. For $11.99 this sword was a steal! I would have paid more, this thing is great! Understandibly it wasn't that sharp right out of the package but I took care of that real quick, now this thing will slice through just about anything. It arrived 2 days after I ordered it and I must admit I've already murdered several cantalopes and a small watermelon! I was surprised at how light this sword was also. The braided handle is excellent, quite comfortable too. And this thing is sturdy, I definitely like how tough this sword looks and feels.<br /><br />The only real problem I can forsee is the case it comes with, I just know sooner or later I'm gonna slice right through that thing sheathing my sword if I'm not careful about it. However while it's still in tact I must say it does fit comfortably while strapped to my back.<br /><br />For anybody still on the fence about buying this, I say buy it! It's a great deal for a solid product. True Swords, I will definitely be doing more business with you soon!
This sword is TIGHT. And for twelve bucks...you better add this to your shopping cart. Unless you want the zombies to get you. BUY!!!
i got this for my brother and now im thinking of getting one myself. a litlle dull, but a quick sharpening fixed that up. weight is perfect and fun to swing
Best weapon ive ever gotten. I have used it already against my older brothers sword. No damage to this blade, his blade on the other hand has nothces and cosmetic damage. No scratches,dings,or notches. Overall this is the best sword in my collection.
This is my first sword that I have ordered from this site and I think it is an awesome choice for sword beginners! The full tang is pretty epic, but the blade is slightly bendy and the wrapping is a little loose. The look is awesome! The serrated middle section acts like a saw and cut through the cardboard box like butter. The look, condition, and quality is EXCELLENT.
This is one of my favorites I have bought. Very cool design, great feel, and awesome addition to your collection. I actually bought a couple more of these for friends who really liked the piece.
This is review #2 from me. I purchased this sword some weeks ago so I have had the chance to test it fully. <br /><br />First Test - Delivery<br />The sword was delivered two days after I ordered it, along with two other items. When I took the sword out I noticed that there was some residue on the blade, but was otherwise great. The residue came off with a damp rag quite easily. The blade was barely sharp, but my whetstone took care of that easily.<br /><br />Second test - Practicality in carrying.<br />This sword has at least 2 places where one can carry it and unsheath it quickly from. The first place is on the back with the handle coming up over the shoulder at an angle. The problem with this though is that the top part of the sheath sticks up and it's really ugly looking that way. The second is on the back with the handle near your side. This particular method is great for using with backhand sword styles. The velcro strap is great at holding the sword in place so you dont need to worry about the sword falling out.<br />The one major thing you have to worry about is putting the sword in at an angle and cutting open the side of the sheath, which is nearly guaranteed, but this can be remedied with glue, or a needle and thread, or even duct tape for you duct tape fanatics.<br /><br />Third test - Maneuverbility<br />Yes, this sword is smaller than I expected, but it was also much lighter, and the handle was alot more comfortable than I expected as well. I found that it was extremely easy to use in both regular and backhand styles. The sword has great directionality as well as great speed. <br /><br />Fourth test - The mighty battle against a tree<br />It was me, versus the tree that injured my cat... Ever since that one day I vowed to take my revenge against the tree. And so I did. I started off with the small branches, sliced off without a problem. Then I moved to some more medium sized branches, 1-3 inches thick, they took between 2-5 hacks to get through. Then on the stronger branches 3-6 inches, they took even more hacks, but still went through. Anything bigger than that and it took too many hacks to matter, might as well to take an axe to it. Damage to the blade : None<br /><br />Fifth Test - Sword to sword<br />This test was against a $25 katana, steel is for nothing more than display. It's not hardened, not even stainless. The steel isn't worth it's weight. I started off by taking the blade out of this no tang katana, because if I would have had someone hold it while I hit it, that katana would have broken. So with the katana blade in a vice grip, I swung this sword at the katana with gradually increasing force.<br />10% force - Slight nick in the katana, no damage to this sword<br />25% force - Slightly bigger nick in the katana, still no damage to this sword<br />50% force - an irrepairible nick in the katana at least 2.5 millimeters deep, no damage to this sword<br />75% force - a deep irrepairible nick about 3.5 or 4 millimeters deep in the katana, only slight cosmetic damage to this sword<br />100% force - a huge irrepairible nick almost 1/2 of the way through the katana's blade. Somewhat noticeable cosmetic damage to this sword, mainly since I had to force it out of the other sword.<br /><br />Overall - <br />This sword is pure awesome. If it were up to me to sell this sword, given these test results, I would be selling this sword for $30+. But trueswords.com has really given us a great deal by offering this AWESOME sword for $12. I have one collection of swords that only boasts swords that cost less that $30, and this is easily the top dog of them, not to mention that it even bests some of the swords in my $30-$100 range.<br />Go on ebay, sell one old thing that you have that you dont want anymore for $12 because if you have any interest for swords at all, you have to have this sword.<br /><br />My overall rating is 6 out of 5, I give this sword a standing ovation. Thank you Trueswords.com for supplying this awesome fulltang sword for the cheapest price I've ever seen any sword.
Probably the best sword you can get for 12 bucks. Everyone complained about the sheath and I'm not any different. The sheath is cheap and could be damaged easily, IF YOUR A MORON. Just be careful with it for gods sake...like you should be with any sword. Unless your on a secret assignment and need to get the sword in and out of the sheath in a hurry it won't be a problem. The sword came with some stains on it, but I managed to get those out easily. It wasn't very sharp but I fixed that with a simple sharpener also ordered off this site. The teeth were sharp though. Wrapped handle is kind of annoying, but once again you aren't taking this deep into the congo to kill a dictator. I would give this 4 stars, but the price puts it up to 5 stars. So skip going out to lunch one day and buy this sword with the money you save, I guarentee you won't regret the 12 bucks
Sleek, Stealthy, and Sexy. the three S's of an awesome ninja.<br />yes it is thin, but that inly makes it that much lighter and easier to swing. i now regret ordering this, only because i love it so much!!<br />5/5
Very, Very good weapon. no complaints except for the nylon sheath which rips if you put the blade in wrong. very sharp, nylon cords are sturdy, 5/5.
I bought two of these swords to use together, the blade itself is pretty great, one of them had a minor inperfection on the black coating on the blade. The sheaths blow...bad, one of them fell apart the first day, and the strap is so short, it's useless. Even with that, this sword is great for the price, as a sword collector, this recieves my Bargain Award of 5 Stars.
looks cool and handles well and a good price so i cant complain except for the sheath which is kinda flimsy.
ok, so wow, its way short, but it says it is so cant complain there, as said before the "saw" teeth are way sharper than the blade itself, i tried to sharpen it, didnt get very far, hard to sharpen with the curves, o well. i have a slight OCD to so the wraping annoys me to!
good blade, a little on the dull side, and ironically the teeth are sharper then the blade itself. overall, good blade.
just got the sword today...fast shipping, and excellent blade! as one who loves details, i am impressed with the awesome design of this blade...i actually saw a knock-off attempt of this design by another company and this blade is much better! kinda reminds me of the sword seen in the "300" movie. i tested out the sharpness and it was perfect! i also love the black stealthy color and the sheath that comes with it. the very affordable price isn't bad either! great product! A+++
Great sword just got it today. its holder isnt the best and doesnt stay together that long, but other than that its awesome!
Beautiful Sword! Great Design cheap price! I would not buy any other sword besides this one if you only have 12 bucks to spend! But only down side to the sword is the sheath isn't the greatest! A++ Sword!
I must admit i was sceptical about the price, but it's a freakin awsome sword. on the shorts side for a sword but perfect length for concelement. Also comes pretty sharp.
wow, this sword is freakin awesome !!!<br />i love the style for it, but they could of worked on the handle a little bit, also the case...but in the end its all GOOD !!!!<br />LOVE IT THE SWORD
yo i just got this sword, its freaking awsome. the only thing was when i got it it had some oil on the blade but that comes right off
This sword is really great. it comes sharp, and it cuts well. the only problem is that I almost cut my neck opened because the blade went through the case.
Its a little on the short side but a great weapon never the less! I sent this one to a friend as an early birthday present, and he can't put it down. It's good quality, decent sharpness and you can't beat the price. From what I understand the hedges never stood a chance. Thanks guys!
omg yes!!!!<br />i finally got mines in the mail today<br />its amazingly sharp....... believe me i know ;)<br />this is a really good buy
This sword is great i got it just 2 days after i ordered it i love the teeth and the magnificent painting, ifyou are a ninja fanatic you should definately but this sword!!
This sword is awesom. I was dissapointed by the size, but not much, its just thinner than I expected, but it is still very sturdy. It looks great and is easy to use because its very light. Well worth the price.
This sword is amazing! Its sleek, very sharp, lightweight, and surprisingly durable! Other than the cheap case its awesome! Its definitely worth more than it costs!
Truly a Beautiful piece to add to my collection. It has a good length, nice and sharp, and just a gorgeous sight to behold. The sheath is appropriate, easy to carry on your back, shouldn't be too chunky or it would defeat the purpose. So far one of my Favorites. Great Deal!
a very nice sword for the price I got it for. like a few of the other reviews it was smaller than i thought it would be but its sharp edge makes up for its length.
Very cool looking and very sharp. From what I've done so far it also seems very sturdy.<br /><br />I wasn't entirely excited about the idea of the serrations when I was browsing for a sword, but when I tested it out sawing on something the serrations proved very sharp and handy. <br /><br />A little smaller than I was expecting, but that was a matter of me estimating measurements wrong.
Very cool, very light, quite sharp (particularly the teeth) and overall a very good deal. Other than the cheap sheath and slighlty slim blade, I couldnt be happier.
this sword is sexy, and the point is sharp to pierce. The quality is awesome and you can strap this sword on your back. Great item, a must for those who like to go under cover.
This is a light duty sword and as long as you know that fact upfront,you will not be disappointed. It has a good look and a reasonable price,so I would recommend it.
I got this along with a fantasy bowie I was very pleased with both, the sword was beautifully made the only complaints i have is that the para-cord wrapping loosened at a single swing and I had to retie it myself. The tip of the blade had a small bur on it but that was solved very quickly with a metal file. I did have to sharpen though because it wasn't as sharp as i had hoped it would have been. Other than that I am quite pleased with it and will definitely purchase more blades from BudK.
Well, I received this and a Honshu Karambit in the mail today. Focusing on this sword, I'm happy overall it sliced through the brush I tested it against and the serrations do exactly what they are meant to do. That said, I'm going to have to go out to my local leatherworker and get a new sheath made because right out of the box the supplied sheath was torn down one side making it useless.
Excellent sword. Though, full tang, with a passable grip. Sheath wasn't particularly great quality, but it's a $13 sword, so what do you expect? Only complaint was that it came covered in a thick, sticky, greasy, gooey slime. Not pleasant, but easy enough to clean up. fairly sharp, to. All in all, worth the money, and then some!
It is cool, simple, and cheap. Only problem is that it is rather hard to sharpen, even with the Accusharp I got from BUDK.
Description is a little off, Would more accuratley be be considered a machette than a sword due to the thickness of the blade material. Actually this is what I intend to use it as while hiking because it is very light weight and would be perfect for that use.
Firstly, this blade is $13.00. I've had two of these blades for several years now. I've chopped acres of brush, and numerous saplings with these blades. I've beat the hell out of both of them, and all they've ever needed was a little straightening, and a little sharpening. Don't be stupid, they aren't real ninja swords. However, like most of the critical comments, there are a couple of downsides. First, cut the nylon off the handle. In 30 mins. they'll be sliding off anyways. A lot of duct tape, and little grip tape, will solidify the handle. Secondly, they need to do one of two things with the sheath. Either make it of plastic, or at least add some rods to the current sheath to make it rigid. Other than that, solid sword for sure. P.S. If you broke it, you weren't using it properly, and you would have broken any other sword too. Also, it's quite obviously a full tang, what do you think they wrapped the cord around?
It can sharp out of the box,good for display but not sure if it's really full tang.the sheath is ban there was a hole in mine and I took the blade it cut my hand got 3 stitches but overall a good buy
First, the sword arrived quickly, but the sheath was ripped open down the side. Whoever sowed this sheath did not do a very good job! Now the sword seems to good for protection but people need to remember that this a very sharp sword and is weapon, not a toy! I hold 2nd Degree Black Belt in Kenpo, and have trained with swords for several years so I know what I am doing. For the price you can't beat this sword, it's good and solid. Don't let untrained people (NO CHILDREN) play with this sword!
great feel...but sheathe was broken when I got fist open it I chopped a 2 2x4 in pieces and only a little bending was done in the middle.
Nice light short sword. Grip is big enough for one or two hands. Fairly sharp. The wrapping on the handle was fairly cheap nylon string which I tore off the sword and re-wrapped it with some good old made in America 550 cord. Took me a day to figure out how to do it but looks better and feels better.
i recently received my sword in the mail and i love the feel of it but the wrapping around the handle was complete garbage came loose after first swing so took it off and wrapped it with paracord and i made sure it was tight now it wont ever come undone unless i undo it myself, also the sheath is complete crap the blade is so sharp once i put it back in it ripped it open so im gonna make my own sheath from kydex i recommend this sword but i also recommend anyone who buys it to tear the handle wrapping off and lose the sheath cause that its just garbage material those are my only two complaints about this sword but once those are fixed it will be perfect
only complaint i have is no true swordsmen would use a nylon sheath sword are meant to be in scapboard but otherwise in my first strike as a test of the blade i cut the shipping box it came in clean in two suprisingly sharp for a cheap sword im loving it already if it had a better form of holder it would be a 5 star item
I got these swords last week, and they seem to be holding up. The blade is a little flimsy but I've beat on em and they haven't broken yet. The paracord/ string was useless kept sliding and just cheaply done. I did buy two of these and it feels pretty bad**s to carry around. Overall im satisfied
I have been practicing martial arts since I was about 5 years old. I'm now in my mid 20's and let's just say I know a good weapon when I feel one. The weapon here has some minor tweaks like it's size and weight. It's balance and what not. Considering I paid 12 dollars for it, it has proved to be a good sword. It feels good in your hand but since it's so small They should have sold it in a two package set. It's more like an over-sized bowie knife. However, because of the serrated edge on the bottom side and the dull blade (don't sharpen it) it would make a very hard wound to repair if say, you ever had to use it in self defense. Overall I am satisfied with this product.
This Sword is very reliable. the cord grip didn't hold up and you have to be careful when you put it away not to stab through the sheath. it has excellent chopping power and a good serrated edge.
I got this sword not knowing what to expect from it. It is in fact very sharp on the blade and more so it's point. The sword itself is pretty good, I wasn't too pleased with it's sheath though. It's kinda floppy and the strap is not a good fit.
Nice looking sword for decoration. Please don't cut with this. It is not one solid piece. The tang is welded.
First off I want to say when I got it out of the box it was so dull a 2x4 is sharper than this thing.2,The handle is very good but can come undone.3.The shape of the blade is really scary.4,It has a really sharp point and the serrations are something not to fool around with.All around its pretty good need a lot of sharpening though. 4/5
This was my first purchase from BudK and I thought for the price you can't beat it, Well I was right. I ordered two and both were very sharp right out of the box, though they dulled with cutting. At this price you can't buy the metal that it takes to make this sword. I am very pleased with my purchase and plan on buying more, Thanks BudK
This was my second purchase from BUDK and I have to say that when I ordered the sword I wasn't expecting much because of the price, but boy was I impressed! The solid steel blade is perfect. Although it does come a bit dull, that can be fixed with a little sharpening. Overall a good purchase. I will continue to buy from this website. Thanks Budk!
all around good sword mine came a little dull the saw part of the sword was sharp tho only downside is that its two peaces and not 1 when you take the handle off and the 2 wooden stick braces you can see the handle welded to the blade. just makes me wonder why they couldent of just made it all 1 peace would of been just as easy to do and you would have a stronger sword.
AMAZING price I got 2 one for me and one for my wife. these swords are light and very effective we have been chopping every thing we can and there. still in perfect condition go out and order these they make great gifts .......
I love the sword but the sheath could be a Bit better...I also bought the Timberwolf full Tang ninja sword for a friend and it's sheath is amazing. If the Secert agent had a stiff backing to the sheath it would be way better.
Very nice sword.comes a little sharp btu not that muchs.the handle is very good.no complaints except the sheeth it came apart quickly but besides that its amazing,i bit thinner than i thought but then again it supposed to be tactical.
Cool sword. You get what you pay for. Blade's a bit dull, handle leaves much to be desired, sheathe/backstrap definitely could be better, but it is a cheap blade. Looks cool. Buy it for the looks.
Looks great, thought to buy it. It looks a lot like Vladimir The Impaler's sword in Assassin's Creed Revelation.. Looking forward to it.
Surprisingly sturdy, the edge is sharp. And the serrated bit cuts gourds nicely.
I recently ordered two of these swords. They maybe stamped stainless steel, but once you hone an edge on them they become deadly. They are light, and the nylon wrapped hilts do a fair job with grip ( i re-wrapped mine) All in all worth twice what i paid for mine. If you got 12.99 kicking around there is no excuse to not buy one.
Got the sword, knew it was the sickest looking sword ever, but it was also the worst quality, dull, and flimsiest sword I'd ever seen. I totally recommend this product as a wall ornament and for the GREAT price, but never to anyone who wants to be rough with it.
This is the sickest looking cheapest sword you'll ever find. All my friends LOVE it. This is the worst quality blade though that I've ever seen. It's sooooo flimsy and dull when I got it. Of coarse I sharpened it so you could actually consider it as a real sword.
I overall really like this sword, it's a bit shorter than I thought it would be , but since I purchased two to use as twin swords it all works out. I'm a little disappointed about the sharpness , the tip of this sword and the serrations are very sharp, but the overall parts of the blade aren't. I'm pretty sure this is the same sword offered on [3rd party merchant removed] for $12 just without the logo stamp. One last thing is that sheath doesn't have two lower metal studs, it still safely holds the sword and is a pretty good steath though.
Came sharp and I cut through a tree like nothing. One thing I didn't like was that the "sheath" was made of poor material and I nearly stabbed myself putting it back in but good sword.
great sword, the handle is a little crappy, its a piece of rope wraped around a piece of wood and tape
I just Got The Sword 11/3/11.. I Unwrapped It And Looked It Over With A Fine Tooth Comb. I Come To Realize That The Sword Itself Is Bent To The Left Right After The Handle Ends.. Looking At Eye Level With Blade Up(no obstruction from the handle ties) I noticed A Bend Of About 3 degrees to the right. Also At The Blade, past the serrated edge, It Is Not A Smooth Contour Up To The Point. it Dips up into the sword and then Continues Its Normal Contour. No Dullness Of The Blade In That Area But Its Still There. Overall blade is Sharp And Sturdy. Just Need To Re-bend Sword Back Into Place.
I was really excited when I opened the box to the sword. The sword is great quality steel. I was just really disappointed on how dull the blade is. So before you think about buying this sword you might want to look at buying a sharpener for it, or else you will be having trouble cutting even the smallest tree branches.
For only $10, a great buy and a must have for any short sword lovers! Very light, very sturdy, and the handle doesn't cut into your hand like some of the other simple nylon-wrapped handles. The design of the edge is ugly (in a good way); if you cut into somebody with that, it won't cut, but rather maim and tear. I tested it on a dead pig's carcass (very close to human flesh) and the sword completely ended it! Very nasty looking cuts, but each one was smooth and effortless.<br /><br />I did get mine dull, however. It isn't too big of an issue, seeing as what it did to that pig, but it should be noted anyways. All in all, I'm satisfied, especially for the price.
The sword itself is masterpiece the wrapping around the handle is very loose but can be very easily fixed As for the full tang part it's not exactly battle ready but if you were forced to use it against someone it wouldn't definitely go straight threw them with a single thrust but the blade isn't very sharp. But overall it's one of the best swords I own and it's only ten dollars!
overall this sword is amazing especially for the price i actually cut through a foot ball with it haha. it is not good for blade to blade contact and it is slightly off balance so u have to grip it closer to the blade. it came sharp about a week later and some wd40 makes it shine real good
well what can i say this was a pretty awesome sword!!! this was my first ever sword at the time i bought 2 swords so i could have twice the awesomeness. mine didn't come with a very very sharp edge but enough to cut some trees about 3 and a half inches around. the sheath comes undone easily and they bend at the tips quite easily but otherwise you cant beat the price!!! i am always customer!!!:)
the wrapping on the handle and the sheath suck but once youve solved thos prblems this is the best sword ive ever bought (also the cheapest)
awesome sword i will be buying from them again the cord needs a little tweaking because it tends to come undone but the good thing about the sword would be if you needed it in a emergence or something like that.
It took like 4 days for the sword to come, and when it did, it was pretty sweet. It was in great shape except for the sticky resin that was on the blade, but that was easily removed in less than a minute. Another thing was that the tip of the sword wasn't as sharp as i expected, but its no big deal.
The sword looks very nice, i have no plans for using it but it seems pretty sharp. A nice piece to hang on the wall or to show off, but the sheath isn't the best, mine came with the bottom torn i might be able to sow it together but otherwise it's a great buy.
The laces on the end come off easily, but that can be solved by re-knotting it in a way so that it won't slip. I ordered two. Lacing is a little loose on the handle, but can be readjusted. Comes really sharp. The scabbard is functional. Balance is good. Good for one hand short sword.
The handle it very narrow and provides a treacherous grip, the sheath is pathetic. But for its cost I would say its a deal.
it is a great sword the biggest problem is the handle wrappings loose and moves around alot. Secondly the sheath is a piece of crap, mine fell apart and i cut my hand because of it. The blade itself though is excellent, and it looks amazing. Over all it was a good buy!! Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate spelling.
Great Swords, the only problem is the nylon sheath needed to be re-stitched after a bit of use, but for price wise it cant be beat.
Very Nice Sword!!! I bought 2 just for the h*** of it! they came with a decent edge on them, but the nylon cord slides a little bit when you swing 'em around. Needs a different kind of sheath! Overall, I DEFINITELY got my money's worth!! Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate spelling.
i got this for my birthday, and i really have been wanting one of these, i was awestruck when i opened it. As said before there is like a weird pattern on it, but easy to clean. Mine came unsharpened, and after putting it in the sheath a couple times it tore through it a little(nothing some duck tape cant fix) all in all an awesome sword for a great price. the saw area is the sharpest.

Got mine a short while ago. Really like the way it handles doing a figure 8 sword kata. It really sharpened it up nice. I've read in other reviews that people had issues with the scabbard. I could see how in time how it might have problems. So right away I reinforced it with black duct tape which really helped with making it sturdier. Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments.

i've had much experiance in purchasing blades like this and i like to do my research before i buy and this is definitly the cheapest i've found in combination with shipping. this is one of the mid level blades i've purchased of the dozen or so i own. its not too bad of a blade for the price. the blade is both light and sturdy, but after extended periods of use your hand becomes sore from the nylon wrapped handle. it came semi-sharpened but will be quite sharp once i use my stone on it. the sheath isn't all that great, its a lot wider and bulkier than i expected and it is a little big for the blade. <br /><br />the only problems i had were the sheath could be a lot smaller and fitted to the shape of the blade and whenever it came, the plastic was stuck to the blade and left residue behind, but i was able to get it off with some nail polish remover. overall i would recommend this to anyone. good blade and you can't beat the price (believe me, i've checked)
cool but not great its more 4 show cuz the teeth on it the teeth r not sharpened great but its light and people like it
I really like this sword. It looks very cool and comes sharp enough to cut boxes and so forth. My only complaint, if you can call it that, is the sheath. It is impractical. Besides that though, great deal for the money.
There was a little oil on the blade and sheath but it was easy to buff off. It's somewhat difficult to unsheath because of the blade design but i found the more you pull it out and put it back in the sheath it gets easier, the sheath just has to get the feel for the draw of the blade.It comes with a backstarp but it is not functional.Also the nylon was a little loose but it was nothing some super glue wouldnt fix. Needs a little sharpeing if you are actually going to use it, but otherwise it was completely worth the $13.00 Great Job Bud K
This is a nice short sord. It looks hot and has agrate pearcing tip its sterty and ezy to control. But it could be sharper
nice fits right into hand not vary shar point is tho after sharping it it did a gash into my tin garage after takeing a slash at it
Very fun what else can i say. I got it to chop stuff like trees and crap and i can say i am happy with it. i have chopped only few things so far. its light,sharp but kinda thin and it chops small branches with ease and style.
id say the sword overall is pretty cool well 2 me it wasnt as sharp as expected but its still good thou if you're thinking about getting it you should
This sword was really, really sharp when it arrived. Sharp enough to cut through the sheath and give me some nice gashes on my fingers. Other than that possible hazard, the sword is really nice. It has a nice weight to it, and you can really do damage to cardboard/wood. I recommend stapling the edges of the sheath though, otherwise you risk your fingers.
well i think this sword looks pretty awesome, and as all of you should know, these knives are only to collect. lets hope you dont buy one to try and do damage to something. i knew it was only to collect, but i still wanted to sharpen it to see.. cant really be sharpened. ive tried, and it dosent really sharpen at all. stays dull, which is a good thing. but the teeth like ridges are pretty sharp. you may have read another review of them cutting the box in half, but only if you hit it right with the ridges. ive also cut the box in half. overall, pretty good collectable. i rate this a 4 out of 5.
When i first got it i was like WOW, very sharp, good size, lightweight, and ready for any mission... I cut the box it came in with a mere swipe...very attractive
Fairly dull, but easily sharpened. The sheath is decent. Once sharpened, this sword for $11.69 is awesome!!!
Wow. I bought this cuz it kinda looked cute. I am starting an all-round sword collection and made this my 4th installment. Honestly, it's my favorite piece from the moment I took it out of the box. 3 problemos, but minor. 1st, sword is slightly curved. To notice it, i held the sword out and held it flat, curved up slightly. 2nd, the strap on the sheath is WAY too short. and it adjusts to be even shorter. 3rd, the wrapping on the handle comes loose way too easily. A definite must have.
This is a lightweight easy to use sword. It sharpens to razor shard and is good for looks and real use. I liked it so much that I bought a total of FOUR. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is the sheath is too flimsy and is only a problem when putting it back and taking the sword out is not affected. Buy it for looks or buy it for hacking brush it works.
As promised, in the above review, I did return for another purchase of this product. It is no less in quality than the first one. I will much enjoy sharpening it, and know that it will perform as does my original purchase. If you have pondered ordering this item, do not delay any longer. Perhaps too late for a Christmas gift, but one guaranteed to it's recipient very happy. I love it, and plan to order several more for friends. I want to witness the expression on their faces, when they open the packages. The only thing that I do not like about the product is it's name. This is a utilitarian gift that will be much appreciated, and if it for yourself, it will be a friend that will be there if and when you need it. Bud K sells excellent products, priced for giving and reselling.
Mostly used for camping. Great for the price! Not too sharp out of the box but handles being sharpened very well. Serrated section of the blade really does work nicely. Feels great in hand and comfortable adjustable cord handle (I replaced mine with black leather). Is heavy enough to use as a machete yet light enough to not be a burden. Great balance of functionality.
This sword really does feel very good to hold...the grip could be a little better and the sword did not arrive very sharp, but its personality definitely makes up for it.
This is a great bargain, for those, like myself, who live alone, in a sparsly inhabited area. It is light, easy to handle, and the blade takes a very sharp edge. I keep it close to the bed, ready for self defense. While I have not yet had to use it, and hope that I never will, I feel sure that it will respond quickly and keep me safe from harm. One always hopes avoiding the use of a weapon, but I am not hestitant in using it. My home is locked and safe with this defensive weapon. Thanks for it, and many other items that I purchased from BudK and perhaps another purchase for the holidays. They are reasonably priced and make great gifts!
Very well proportioned as far as style and weight. Light enough for swift movements and retains enough weight near the tip to add force to your swing. The serated portions are great for up close grappling. The only draw back is that it is rather difficult to keep sharp.
this is a very nice sword! the cord-wrapped handle provides excellent grip, and is easy to hold with one hand or two. there are only a couple of reasons that i did not give this sword five stars. while the tip of the sword is VERY sharp, the the curved section of the blade just down from the point is barely sharp at all. (please note that the teeth on the blade are the sharpest part of the sword, and the only part suitable for cutting.) the cords hanging from the handle of the sword are much longer than the picture shows, and begin to unravel rather easily. my only other complaint is that the velcro strap around the handle that secures the sword into the sheath makes it difficult to draw the sword quickly. other than those small imperfections, it is a very nice sword that is extremely sturdy. i highly recommend it for training or display. 4 out of 5
Great sword. Great design. Great Price. Only complaint I have is that it wasn't that sharp, but was easily fixed with the sharpener I bought.
this sword is so cool all my friends want one lol!! any way what i dont like bout this sword is that its SMALL but its still cool and i dont like the sheath it rips open easly but still cool!!
It was incredible, considering the price of it!<br /><br />I bought it for my little brother's Christmas gift and he is sure to love it. The blade is nice and light, and is pretty easy to control.<br /><br />There were a few problems, first of all it wasn't too sharp on arrival, but I fixed that. Then there were drops of black polish that seemed to have dropped on the blade right before it was shipped.<br /><br />Aside from that, this sword is a must have really. Cheap and beautiful!
By far my favorite out of my order. Very light but shorter than i had imagined. Nonetheless its a great buy for 12 bucks. Simply Beautiful.
A very good sword for the price. The fact that the blade is full tang and a decent thickness is good. The sheath is just a sleeve and is somewhat falling apart at this point, but I am being more careful with it and it isn't getting any worse. Take good care of it from the begining and it might survive a longer time. The edge of the blade isn't particurally sharp but the serated part has a bit of a sting to it. The really sharp part of this thing is the point. Very sharp, in fact, too sharp. It is so sharp and thin that it tends to bend very very easily and be a hazard. I intentionally broke off a part of the tip (a couple millimeters or so) and it is much safer and less prone to bending that way. I use this sword for alot of things it shouldn't be used for (chopping branches, as a campfire poker, throwing it in the air and spinning it, ect...) and it holds up fairly well. The black finish is really on well and even in the heat of dozens of campfires has not taken much damage. Overall a good blade, worth the money if you want a sword to mess around with or if you just like how it looks. Loses a star because of the fragile tip and junkie sheath though.
Ok well for only $11.99 it was a great deal ive taken down trees that were at least the size of a half dollar in just 1 swing. The only complantes is when ever you swing the rope wraped around the handle pulls up and gets all kinds of gaps in it (i have a little ocd is gets on my nerves alot) ANYWAY i also droped it out of a tree to see how far it would go into the ground and it bent the end cuz it hit a root but nothing that a hammer didnt fix well anyway a great sword for the price 4 outa 5
I am not sure the quality of the handle, for it is made out of string, but it seems durable. The blade has come rather dull, as well I am not sure if it is supposed to or not. The design of the blade is nice, intimidating, all as expected. The sheath is flimsy and really only works to hold the blade until unsheathed once, if you were to put it on your back and not want it 3 inches loose.
This is well worth it. It has a durable, kickass design, with a nice darkened blade which makes it easier to conceal at night. My ony complaint is that the sheath was pretty crappy. It was more of a sleeve than a sheath, which made it hard to pull out quickly. Apart from that flaw, this is an excellent deal, especially since it costs only $12 (plus shipping). This sword is well worth your money.
Like most reviews a lil' on the thin side, but a very cut sword. Handle feels over sized and I have huge hands. I like it a loht!!!
I just got this sword today and so far, it's pretty nice. I like the feel of it and it seems really sturdy. It is also pretty sharp. The only flaw is that the length is a lot shorter than what I've expected and the case that came with it, the strap is already broken!! They did a poor job on the sewing on the straps but the sword is awesome! Great for the price too!
wow. hmm what can i say about this. Well the sword is perfect size to hide the blade parts arent that sharp tho but where the saw is is realy sharp i now have a cut on my thmb and its hard to type =( the tip is realy pointy and well do alot of damage if you stab with it it will cut but barly. the case is kinda cheesey but i like it easy to store.so all in all i like it. very good for price tho when u get it make shure to wipe the blade to get the oil off. SO get this is nice it you want to wack stuff with it =) but becareful for the saw!
Pretty sweet! The blade quality and tang is great, but the cord surrounding the handle came loose quite easily. Otherwise, it waqs great. The strap fits well and is loose enough.
Sword isnt very thick but it looks cool and is very light. The jaged teeth on the blade are good for sawing stuff
Great Sword But Need's To Have A Better Wrap on the handle And A Sheath More Like The ''Timber Wolf Full Tang Ninja Sword''.
its a good looking sword but the handle had to have a few adjustments and the sheath was torn in the middle when first opened the package and the swords not even sharp at all I would mainly use it for a practice sword,a display one, but not self defense
The sword wrapping came off fast so i wrapped it in duct-tape. DID NOT SOLVE PROBLEM. I unwrapped it and found the blade is WELDED on the handle. I've taken some pretty bad swings and if that broke it would've seriously injured me. BE CAREFUL
The serrated edge is the sharpest area other than the tip. The wrapped handle provides grip and nothing else, dont hit a tree with it until you have a better wrap. The sheath is crap, nylon sling ripped off quickly, and the seams started to pop. With a bit of work however it can be a good sword for the price.
I saw this sword and thought the design looked amazing. But when I bought it, the sword came extreamly dull so I decided to sharpen it. When I finally got a good edge on it, I decided to test it out. The first thing I noticed was the cord wrapping was extreamly loose and annoying. On my first swing, the blade BROKE at the weld between the hilt and the blade and almost flew back and hit me in the face! I wouldnt recommend this weapon for any serious use. It would make a nice decorate piece though.
This sword is great! Stronger than I even expected it to be, the sheath is also well built, although I feel the strap for carrying it on your back is somewhat thinner than I would have liked. Overall a great buy.
This sword is shorter than shown. The first day I used it the cord wrapped was so loses I had to take it off and wrap it in duct tape. Other than that it is a very nice sword.
Overall I like except one thing, the nylon handle slides with use. Went to cut corn stalks perfect angled cuts but because of handle I have to push it up after a few swings. Other than that a fair buy for the price.
good sword in my opinion though they should replace all the nylon with leather because wen i first got this sword i cut right thru the sheath and the handle comes undone way to easy.
ehhh its an ok sword its got a nice edge on it but its to light an thin to do any real damage not meant for combat i went sparing with a friend of mine the sword was sooo messed up after the first 5 blows... its good for decoration and last minute defense but other than that... bad
Just got this sword and it honestly is better then i thought i would although i wish it wasn't Stainless Steal
i broke it at the handle it went through a lot though i wouldn't buy another one though the same will happen to the next one too.
for its price its ok. handle wrapping kinda sucks comes off too easily and the sheath sucked. its not really intended for use but more for show. was using it to clear a path through some woods and the handle broke off.
I appreciate a well-thought out, informative product review as much as the next person, which is why it's so disappointing to read mostly useless tripe from seemingly below-average intelligence folks who either can't spell or punctuate correctly, or just don't care enough to try(u kno who ur, dumba$$e$)! A monkey has more self-respect than you, so go back to school and learn something or stay off the internet! By the way, this item really looks "cool", especially if you buy 15 or 20 of them and have them hanging in every room in your house, and maybe your basement and garage, and your neighbor's bathroom, and they look even cooler if you run them through the walls of your house with the point sticking out in one room and the hilt sticking out of the wall in the next. It's even better if you manage to hit a water pipe! Awesome!
Not Bad not the greatest either the length is about as big as a typical machette, which is not bad, but smaller than I thought, as for the sheath it is pretty bad it had a hole in it when I took it out of the box luckly I don't buy swords for there sheaths anyway not the worst the blade looks awsome and you can't complain for the price
yes it was more skinny than i had imagined but still looks pretty cool also was not sharp at all only the saw teeth were kinda sharp the string handle is not very good either for it will come undone and mess up and the sword keeps geting stuck in the sheath it also seems to be poorly made because at the very tip of the sword it curves back more than it should
Interesting little blade here, love the curved edge at the tip, the cord wrapped handle seems sturdy enough... Can't wait to give this sucker a bit of light yard work... Good buy for the price alone, sure it's cheap, but hell, it's functional, what more do you want?
not to bad especially for the price but you do get what you pay for better off spending a little more money unless you just want something cheap to destroy stuff with
I bought one several years ago. As soon as I opened the package I was a little let down. It was balanced well, but too thin for my liking. I used it mostly for hacking weeds and bushes in the yard, worked great at that, but one hit up to close to the handle and it snapped in half. If they make a thicker one I would definitely buy another.
This is a great sword, comes in sharp but I sharpened my more to make it razor sharp.But there two major things you need to change in order to make this sword perfect. You need new grip on the handle ... It keeps sliding. Also a better sheath. the one it comes in is very poor and the sword cuts it right through putting it in at a wrong angle. Witch most people do at one point.
Was excited when I first got it but soon didn't like the wrapping and decided to use some P-cord and wrap it myself. I then found out that the hilt was welded to the blade under the cord wrapping from the factory. I am now weary about actually using this for real use.
the sword is very thin, i stabbed the box it came in and lifted it up and the sword was bending, not sharp at all but the serrations are very sharp, for 12 bucks really cant complain. the wrapping was very lose and had to re-rap the handle.
When i bought this i was 10 yrs. i am 11 know. it broke within 2 weeks of use. VERY light use. i am disappointed greatly. also, US- Patriot, some kids, like me, know how to properly use a sword/knife properly, so think before you type.
I was so disappointed. The 1/4 inch steel is flimsy and the "fantasy" cutouts only make it flimsier. What's worse, it is much smaller in real life. The paracord handle is odd to grip as well. Completely useless. I gave it away to someone who knew nothing about swords.
I was severely disappointed when I received my sword because it was extremely dull and won't even poke a hole in cardboard without a lot of force! I wish that customer service would compensate me by sending a sharpening tool! If this doesn't happen then I will take my business elsewhere!
We won't be able to ship this item until we receive more stock. But don't worry, we've found a similar item that's ready to ship now.
