freakin awesome

I've had this ten ryu sword for about 3 months now and it still is just as sharp and battle ready as the day I opened the box. Minus the habaki being loose(minor fix) it is a full tang fully functional (tested) Katana. A must have. P.S. if you use your sword or don't use it. Don't forget to clean it. Its real steel it will rust even if you don't use it.

freakin awesome

So far so good this katana is quite a piece of work it is very sturdy and well put together there are somethings it needs tho but they are only small things the rayskin isnt rayskin but that dont really matter the blade is magnificent i was cutting water bottles on a metal trash can and missed and it the rim on the can where it folds and it sliced into it and the blade was untouched i have not dissassemble the blade yet so i dont know how it looks inside also it came decently sharp but not razor sharp but besides those two things the rayskin and super sharp this is a amazing piece and it came very quick true sword im impressed by the professional performance on the order and i will be buying more from this site and by the when it comes oily thats a good thing this is a high carbon steel sword that just means that they packed it right so it dont rust now the high carbon steel seems to be 1065 carbon steel but it is not stamped but to some it up this was a great purchase and i will get more stuff off this site

My Katana arrived in pristine condition two days before I expected it. None of the staining on the leather wrapping that I had read about in some of the reviews here was present.The saya is in perfect condition with not a dent or scratch to be found. The first draw of the blade produced an ever so slight amount of oily residue from the inside of the saya, which was not present after wiping the blade down, resheathing and redrawing it a second time. Careful inspection found the blade to be arrow straight with a flawless cutting edge. The custom engraving is beautiful. I have to resist the temptation to display the sword unsheathed. This magnificent weapon would be worth every penny at twice the price,and I am happily looking forward to using it in my Iaido kata.

Nicely balanced,Great grip,beautiful blade. Only problems is the sheeth had a dent at the top and the blade had a little dent in it, It cut nicely through a apple and a sunny d bottle. It wasnt as sharp as expected but it is still good.

I am very pleased with the order, it is truly a great weapon, nicely balanced, and not too heavy. I attempted to change the tsuba but the other tsuba didn't fit on the tang, so I put the original back on. Overall, my best purchase from true swords, I am very pleased.

This swordbis made of good steel. It was put together ok everything was tight. The balance piont is a little forward for me,and the hamon is fake. All in all it is a very goood quality sword for the price.

Think I was lucky. Its been said that Masahiro is a 50/50 shot at getting something awesome or something crappy because they dont do quality control or whatever.

My White Ronin is a piece of freaking art. Razor sharp, straight as an arrow and beautifully balanced. The faux leather wrapping is tight and smooth to the touch. Overall its a beautiful piece to add to my growing collection.

Sadly. The palm grip thingies (the proper name escapes me atm) beneath the wrappings are loose. So even for some playful swinging let alone some serious cutting that's a bit of a problem.

Also, I've read about that "gunk" people tend to have inside the sheaths of the weapons they order here. Figured I was lucky and never encountered it. No longer, that crap mars the beauty of this blade and its thrice dammit annoying.

But other than that? Worth every penny.

Excellent sword!! Arrived very quickly as usual. Less than 50 hours from time ordered. The tsuka is very white and thank you for sending it wrapped in plastic. At some point I may unwrap it but for now I'll leave it on and keep it clean. Well oiled and top rate packing. The extra tsuba included is very nice too and sturdy. When viewed up close the etchings on the blade are just wonderful. The photographs just cannot convey how attractive they really are.

i got this sword maybe about 6 months ago (i thought i wrote a review, but i guess not) its a very good sword, it cut through water bottles and fruit like paper. only thing is that the wrapping is a leather like material and once it got wet, it turned brownish and messed up, but it gives it a battle-worn sort of look. other than that this sword is amazing.

I had this sword for a while and have been using it to cut,slice, and even shatter wood, bottols, etc.

It is a well made, full function,sharp blade so be careful. The only 3 flaws in it is that the blade is an inch or two small then what i would like, the white lether gets very dirty over time, and i would like it even more if the handle was 10 to 11 inch's in length. overall a very nice pice of work and recommend it to all beggeners, novice, collecters, and martal artists.

Nice work trueswords.

For anyone looking for a good bottle cutter, this is a good buy. My blade came nice and sharp, all of the fittings were tight and the leather wrap was tight as well. Highly recommend.

Masahiro is mostly known for their blades and for a hundred bucks, you get a very nice solid-entry level cutter. The white leather looks stunning and yes, it will get dirty over time, but anybody should already know this before-hand so..I personally don't mind the grip getting dirty, I will be using this so..it should be dirty.

great sword for the price!
one of the first real functional swords i have bought i have always bought show pieces but this sword is sturdy and beautiful and well crafted could not be happier with my purchase

The sword is great. Really well made and probably best you can get for this price which is probably too low for it anyways.
It's really light and durable. Very sharp and cuts well even with one hand. Sharpness does not dull any from cutting even tough objects. The blade itself withstand some decent impacts without having a trace of damage on it afterwards, not that I recommend testing it like that.
I love the way it looks also. Engraving on the blade is probably what I like the best. Just overall a beautiful looking katana.
Not only the katana is great but so is costumer service that this site have. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

Best customer service I have ever experienced in my life – without a shadow of a doubt. My sword had slight defects, such as a stain on the wrap, loose ito, sharp points on the tsuba, difficult to disassemble, ect. I notified them I was displeased with my purchase, they called me back the very next day and had a long talk with me, addressing my concerns, giving me advice and helpful insight for future purchases. They are very respectful, courteous, and knowledgeable people to consult with. They told me that they thoroughly check their items before they ship them out, and they werere very sorry that this one slipped by with some issues. But what really blew me away was toward the end of the call. They actually allowed me to get another sword shipped to my house..absolutely free! I didn't have to send back the Shadow Warrior either!... can you believe that?! (Not sure if I should have written that...as I don't want people taking advantage of Trueswords, such as by making up a fake scenario after they read about my experience. ...That would be so horrendously deceitful to do to such gracious people...) I nearly insisted to ship the Shadow Warrior sword back...it just felt so wrong to accept a free sword!...but they told me it was mine, and not to worry about it. I'm still ashamed to keep it T_T

I just want customers to know what an amazing level of compassion and philanthropy the staff of Trueswords has...par excellence. Truly leaves me speechless. Trueswords go WAY beyond what they should do to make their customers happy...they make it so that no matter what happens after you open the box – in the end you will never feel dissatisfied with your purchase. I really wish more companies were like this. This is the kind of service that binds loyal customers.

I urge all Trueswords customers....if anything is wrong with your purchase... do not hesitate to CONTACT TRUESWORDS! Send them an email – give them a call...your problems will not go by unheeded. What was funny is that they were thanking me for contacting them with my complaints …it's doubtless they genuinely enjoy helping others. I told them that I should thank them, not the other way around, haha.

Anyway, I can't really judge the sword properly – given that with Masahiro swords, sometimes the sword can be of good quality – sometimes it's bad. I guess I just got unlucky. But it won't matter if you are unlucky if you buy this sword from Trueswords...they will make sure of it – trust me. Therefore I do recommend this sword, given that if it does have any problems with it, however minor they may be – True swords will be there to assist you every step of the way.

Long live Trueswords! Thank you again for your wonderful service!! I will be buying again in the future, I can promise that.

Absolutely an amazing katana!! The blade was extremely sharp, and it was overall beautiful to look at. I bought this as a birthday present for my boyfriend and the only complaint we had was that there was too much Vaseline coating the blade so he had to thoroughly clean out the saya. Other than that, this is an excellent buy! Just be careful not to cut yourself with this blade!
