REALLY TS? Reviewed by Stanley LaRue on Dec 20, 2017   5 out of 5

I have been admiring this sword for quite a while now. I figured why not spend my children's Then they promised it would be here by the end of the day on 12/23/17. Ok, True Swords, has once again delivered a very beautiful, affordable sword to me faster than i can even imagine. My new sword was delivered 12/19/17. TS has a sense of humor, at least I think so. I open this big box, thinking, this thing is HUGE, but inside that box with a ton of padding, was another box. i rip open that box, and find another box(the sword display box), so i gently open that box, thinking I'm Indiana Jones about to find the Arc, and the sword is in a sword bag. Well played TS, well played. seriously though, i got a great sword, very affordable( guess my kids will get their inheritance after all) and amazingly beautiful, delivered Earlier than i expected. One last thing, there was a note in the bag, stating the obvious, "no matter how strong the steel is in a sword blade, it will nick when struck against something equally hard like a tree trunk. there are other tools such as axes and machetes which are designed for this purpose." i understand cutting mats and plastic bottles and other cutting training, but seriously, why would you use an item with such beauty on anything like that? Zombies, the jury is still out on how well it performs against them. lol. If you want a great affordable addition to you sword collection, or if this is your first sword, I highly recommend this sword.

Great for the price Reviewed by nick preen on Dec 18, 2017   5 out of 5

Great quality for what you pay, I've paid more and gotten crappier katanas, everything was solid, only complaints I have are the made in China stamp on the blade and there's a little wobble when in the scabbard as it seems more of a universal fit than a custom cut, but perfect addition to the collection

I gotta say that this is a great sword for the price. The overall quality of the sword is very nice. Its very sturdy and the scabbard fits snug.I also loved the fact that it came in a display box and had a sword bag too. Although the box is cheaply made it's still a very nice addition to the sword. My blade came pretty sharp but I'd recommend sharpening it if your actually gonna use it. Overall I am very impressed with this sword.

Bought this for my son for Christmas. He loves it, and that is a very good thing. Also, it is a well made Katana, nicely done.

Shinwa Purple Full Tang Reviewed by Mike Moncivais on Nov 16, 2015   5 out of 5

This is the most real battle ready sword you can buy for the money. It can always be more sharp for those complainers and the technique and what your slicing are the difference between a bent blade and lots of fun. The blade is easily formed back into place if bent. I prefer 1 gallon jugs and 32oz bottles. Its a no brainer when the bogo sale is happening.

Don't listen to anybody that says these are like true combat swords. I am a true sword collector that has Chinese, European and Japanese swords. The pride of my collection is a $700 katana and let me tell you that if you tried to block an overhand stroke from my expensive katana With this one, the blade will likely shatter or bend or the tang would crack. Despite this it's a good novelty sword that can actually perform functionally if needed, at least for a bit.

Outstanding Value Reviewed by Ronnie Lowery on Nov 08, 2015   5 out of 5

I purchased during the BOGO deal and was immediately impressed with the speed of delivery. Secondly when i opened the package i couldn't believe how beautiful these swords were. The hand forging became apparent while cleaning the blades i could feel slight defection on one blade but nothing that would affect it's performance. The other is absolutely perfect so with i guess i have one for display and one to have fun with. Thanks Guys

my opinion Reviewed by on Aug 15, 2015   5 out of 5

Do not let the manufacturing in china decieve you. They are made in China, but they a handforged and live up to their word and are not machine stamped.btw dont expect these blades to be perfect. They are handmade and humans were never perfect, so loosen up and call for a refund and hope that it will be better. I give thanks for the artisans and designers of these fine blades, and keep it up the good work as well

Love it Reviewed by Lee on May 16, 2015   5 out of 5

Very good quality. A sharp useful sword. Does not have the cheap feel like some. I would not be afraid to battle with this sword. Great deal.
