This Sound of Trouble anime sword is one incredible piece of blade craftsmanship. Measuring 41" overall, this outstanding sword features a 25 3/4" stainless steel blade that will slice through the competition. A jingling silver bell is attached to the pommel with a metal chain.
I"m a fan of the Bleach series and wanted to add this sword to my collection. Its an okay piece overall but not quite as beautiful as Rukias Zanpakuto or a practical katana. The sword is more beige than white, and the construction of the sword isn't too sturdy. It has a rat tail tang, not a full one, so I wouldn't try cutting anything or even practicing with it because the blade could fly off and hurt someone. Its a okay display sword, and at $30 dollars not a bad investment, but I would suggest looking at some sub $100 practical katanas this site has to get more bang for your buck.
I just received this piece and I am VERY satisfied with the product. The blade is dull but beautifully crafted as well as the handle. This was my very first blade that I had purchased and I will be coming back. More than worth the price! (Also as a fan of Bleach, this is a beautiful replica of Sode No Shirayuki. Very pleased with the sword.)
I was excited when my sword finally arrived in the mail. Only difference with my sword than what I was expecting is that the blade isn't white like what is shown, and what I've read in the reviews. Maybe they changed it later on when it was once white. It's still a very pretty sword that is mostly an exact replica. Maybe I can find a way to turn the blade white later on. But I'm gonna be displaying it in the wall with the 8 sword wall mount with my other swords
Amazing sword, especially as a collection piece. My only issue is that even though its almost a perfect replica from afar, I am not a huge fan of how plasticy it feels and looks up close. I think with a little more care it could look and feel even better, compared to the other 8 or so swords I own from bleach, this one feels the most like a kids toy, even though its beautiful and fun to hold and show to friends and fans o the show. A great sword 9/10 but if your extremely picky, you may not love this one as much as you would other swords from this site. Still a must buy for bleach fans. (Note: the Ribbon is extremely long. Longer than the sword by like 5 inches, so if you wouldnt like that, might wanna buy a different ribbon)
Great sword. I bout it for my girlfriend and she loved it. It came in great condition, only a little dirt from the box (nothing that couldn't be cleaned off with tissue) and the streamer/ smiley face being a little loose but other than that, it is a great buy.
It's okay overall. Looks great if you don't notice the fine descriptions in the katana itself. The handle is not perfectly aligned and the bell could easily snap off. Also I was kind of expecting the sword to be slightly sharpened but seeing it was hand crafted in China, would rather do the job myself as to someone else doing it for just 5 cents.
Well, The Ribbon Is VERY Long, And I Stepped On It While Playing With It And Pulled It Right Out So Its Not Very Secure, But Other Than That, Its A LOVELY Sword, Gorgeous And The Quality You Would Expect From A $28.00 Sword.
Beautiful sword to add to my collection. Don't think it'll hold up in a real battle, but awesome to practice with and to look at.
I got it for my girl, and all in all, she likes it. But, we are both kinda sad that the blade is white, like the anime. Also, the holes in the guard were kinda over looked. One of the holes still has the material in it. As in, we have to carve out the metal ourselves. But, I guess all in all, it's pretty cool.
i just got mine today and the picture does not do it justice this sword is beautiful and well worth the price even my girlfriend likes way to go budk
truely a magnificeint sword to have in your collection easy to wield, balanced nd overall stunning. thank you trueswords.com for providing such a great product nd i plan on buying more from this site
This is really a great sword! It is beautiful and easy to maneuver and the ribbon doesn't get in the way like I thought it would. I feel like I can really use the power of Sode no Shirayuki!
i really love this sword thanks for having this website available to those who are sword lovers. <br /><br />this sword is truly remarkable
Sword never stayes in the sheath, guessing something went wrong in the manufacturing but as far as replicas go I love it. Looks great and a great addition to my collection.
Beautiful Sword. A great starter piece into collecting. Just don't go chopping things with it. Display Piece only.
The sword looks amazing! And is a great buy. What's more amazing is the customer service that you get from Trueswords though. They make sure to call back to confirm that the order went smooth and go the extra lengths to make sure that you're completely satisfied with what you're getting.<br /><br />I honestly haven't had better service nearly anywhere else that i've shopped at online. If you were to look for ANY sword including this one and Trueswords has it then this site is definitely the place to buy it.
If your a Rukia Kuchiki fan this is a must have.The sword was in excellent condition when i received it.
i was quite impressed with the attention to detail on the looks of the swords, but my only complaint is that the blade looked more like a flat piece of curved steel than an actual blade, but it is meant to sit there and look nice so i am fine with it.
I'll admit it feels a little weird holding that sword considering I'm a guy and it has a girly smiley face on it instead of that white diamond like the anime version does. But it's still very beautifully made when you swing it the ribbon surprisingly doesn't get in your way and with the exception of the smiley face it's a perfect replica.
This sword is indescribably beautiful. Not only is the attention to detail great but everything about the sword really captures Sode No Shirayuki's essence as the most beautiful zanpakuto in Soul Society. This is a great amazing and most authentic piece of work. I'm beyond satisfied with my purchase!
A very perfect gift for a Bleach Rukia fan. Perfect condition, very clean and very tough.<br />Truly amazing and beautiful!<br />More power to True Swords.
i bought this sword for my wife last year and never wrote a review but my wife and i have ordered from true swords many times before and have never been disappointed and this was no exception beautiful sword perfectly painted hilt and sheath the blade is steel not white but non the less true to the anime this is our third sword from bleach and the only one we weren't too amazed by was hollow tensa zangetsu mainly due to the sheath but this sword is perfect and the ribbon is as long as it looks in the picture definitely worth the price and a must have for bleach fans and for the same price as hollow tensa zangetsu its not only a much better buy but is a steal for such a beautiful sword
I loved this sword so much. The sheath and the hilt feels like it can break so easily, but still a great sword for display. Was fast on delivery and enjoying having it. :D
Great piece. Nothing wrong with it. It looks great. Very fast shipping. Trueswords knows what there doing.
is a excellent replica of the anime the bleach and beautiful sword really i don use that i have it to the collection only i recomende
Bought it for my friend's birthday, and she loved it. she loves bleach and is playing with it right now
Mine came in VERY good condition, the oil on the blade is to preserve it of course so no complaints with that. no chips on the sword or scabbard, its not sharp, but i didnt expect it to be, its more for looks than actual use. the blade doesnt wiggle at all which surprised me a little. everything about the blade is superb, its my first buy from trueswords and i am VERY impressed with it. i'll definetly be getting more from this site.
I got this sword a few weeks ago and after really spenind sometime with it I can say that the only thing wrong with this sword is the slight residue of oil and white particles that seem to be inside the sheath.<br />A quick wipe with a cloth and the blade is fine but once you return it to its sheath it'll come back out the same way.<br />It only minutely ruins the whole "most beautiful" sword thing but I've had no serious issue with it.<br />I don't regret the sword at all and love having it in my collection.
I purchased this Katana for my wife, she is a fan of this character from bleech! Very nice product perfect condition, and beautiful to look at. An as always arrived on time. Trueswords pretty much rocks, basically!
awesome sword. i wasnt expecting a carbon steel blade. it came in mint condition. i love the series and rukia is one of my favorite characters.
Not an expert in anyway, but will try to review as best as I can. Absolutely amazing. I love it. The white pain has some spots here and there where you see some excess. The sword, as advertised, not sharp and standard size, but seems perfect (no nicks or anything). The guard seems a bit chipped but it was only noticed when looking very closely. It also seems out of place; it might be the material or he non-gloss white paint that makes it stand out more in comparison with the pictures. The very end of the hilt with the ribbon attached seems to be hastily painted (some spots were missed) but the ribbon itself is incredibly nice. It makes swinging the sword very flashy. Needless to say, I am also a huge fan of the series.
I have to admit, the true beauty of this sword cannot be seen in a picture. I was expecting a pretty sword, but what I got was a true masterpiece. It's simply gorgeous! It will be the new crowning sword in my collection. Wow!
well the sword arrived on my front door this morning. At first look it was perfect. but after a closer look there were white specs on the blade probly from the inside of the scabbard. Not very sharp tho, but i fixed that. Overall this is a really good buy.
The sword got here pretty quickly considering it was sent during the holiday season i thought it would not come until after christmas the sword looks great the ribbon the bell and the blade it self looks great my only complaint is that the handle seems to have a knick and looks a little worn out but only a little i guess the swords are left in storage and not taken care of everyday so that is something to keep in mind other than that the sword is great i may come back to order more swords from true swords lol
Well i really loved the sword, i'm a fan like most of you are, i just found that the blade was alittle shorter then it could have been. <br /><br />I bought it as a gift so it's alittle hard not to pick it up. =P<br /><br />If your debating wether or not to spend the money, trust me, i'de pay eighty to one-hundred and twenty dollars for this sword that just screams elegance.
this deserves a 5/5 but its not 5/5 perfect if i have small minor comments(trust me they are REALLY SMALL AND MINOR) more like 4.9999999999/5. Anyways i received on schedule(second buy). On the plastic handle at the end(dunno if its really plastic, feels something more durable and better) like some thick coat painted wood, but near the bottom end, i found a small chip...so i was a little discouraged but was fine with it. other then that i love how the ribbon floats around XD(was being rukia for like 2 minutes). It is alot lighter then i thought it be, compared to my heavy wooden bokken katana. This review must be lng huh? well if you managed to keep reading, get the sword, oh yea warning...learn how to keep a steel sword clean because the oil was like WTH to me when i saw it.
Very elegant sword, NOT plastic as has been stated. Its almost like a marble like substance on the sheath. Not sure I can describe that any better.<br /><br />The blade is magnificently crafted, the hilt is very well wrapped no slipping anywhere. The tastle just brings a nice elegant look to this sword.<br /><br />A very well made replica of Sode No Shirayuki. Im happy that I bought it
I got this sword about two months ago i just forgot to put in a review. It is a great sword. Light and balanced. No marks or scuffs on it. The bell is nice other than it looks like a smiling face. I only wished the blade was white but thats really asking to much. It will be a great addition to anyones collections.
When i got it the ribbon connected to the hilt came off and the sheath was damaged a little, though i know this was probably just the fluke, like a 1/100000 chance. other than that the sword is beautiful and elegant, a must have for any collector and anime fan. 4/5 only because the ribbon came off
This sword is AMAZING. it looks beautiful, and its actually kinda light. The ribbon really really makes it look sexy, and when you swing the sword the ribbon flows around nicely. Pluss, the bell really does give you that rukia feel. Just get it. Seriously. What are you doing reading my review? you should be purchasing it by now. GO GO NOW! SERIOUSLY this sword is orgasmic
I got this with my other swords. Got to say its a great display piece. The bell and chain are completely unlike the anime but cant expect everything to be perfect.<br /><br />Mine came missing the bell section, i sent a mail to trueswords and got a phone call within 10mins. They sent it to me free of charge so awesome service!<br /><br />The hilt one might think would be weak but its not. Only complaint is that the hand guard is like spray painted white and you can see discoloration in it it looks black underneath. But not the sites fault still worth the money by far.
cool, the only thing id wonder is, why does that tassel at the end gotta always snap when ya swing it.<br /><br />owell its only for looks anyways. but its way good!
I've had this sword for about a week and some change, and just not getting around to a review! LOL...Anyway, this sword is great. It looks just like the pic in every shape, form, and fashion. A very thick coat of oil which you can still slightly smell when you unsheathe it, but I just keep cleanin' it! Overall, well worth the money and perfect for that Rukia lover!
This is a awesome sword!!! The end of the hilt is not plastic its the same materiel as the sheath. I was worried about that. the pic dose not give it justice. by far this sword is grrrrate!!! There is no chipped paint its a nice even coat and looks perfect exactly like it is in the show.
I got the sword in form FedEx a week after the purchase. It is a great sword and a MUST HAVE for anime fans. The only down side is the small form the oil on the blade but other than that the sword is perfect. I will defintly order more from the web site in time. Thank you for this lovely sword.
First time i bought from this site. Good sword a bit light compared to my other ones. FedEx delivered it at the wrong house dint get the sword till a week later. other than the delivery this is good stuff dull though.
Am a first time buyer from this site and i have got to say from the shipping to the product i am very impressed it was one day earlier than estamaited delivery and the product it great love the sword love anime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and i will be orderin from you guys very soon great doing bussnines with you.
bought this swords just for the look of it, the bell and color ad a uniqueness to it unlike my others, it's a very well built sword, but of course it's purely decorative, I recomend it, especially for anime fans.
WOW, purchased this a few days ago and it is a great replica. Well balanced, and even the tiniest detail is well attained to. Great job trueswords.com. Came in 3 days after i placed the order. GREAT for ANY anime collector.
SUPER SWEET the only complaint i have is that the extra handle plastic...other than that, it is FANTASTIC
Mai, Sode no Shirayuki! Some no mai, Tsuki Shiro! Tsugi no mai, Hakuren! San no mai, Shirafune! This sword is the most beautiful in all of Soul Society! The blade, the guard, even the hilt is the purest white hence the name, Sode no Shirayuki; White Snow's Sleeve. That said there are two problems with the sword I have now; number one, the blade is not white, and number two it's not full tang. For this to be a TRUE replica of Sode no Shirayuki, the blade at the very least must be all white! Other than that, perfection!
It truly stands up to its title as the most beautiful sword in all of Soul Society! Very pretty, and good weight and balance.<br /><br />The only things are that the handle is a little scratched up and the actual metal part is in a bit crooked to the handle.<br /><br />Over all, a beautiful sword.
Sode no Shirayuki its soo cool ^_^ but the olny prob I had were some spots on the blade..other then its its sweeeet! I recommend it to other people
I received it after some mix up with FedEx, totally not True Swords fault. Loved the sword. It's obviously not for use, but as it is, a replica. It's very sleek and pleasing to the eye. I would agree with most if not all the reviews posted. Definitely a great buy at the price, especially for all the anime fans out there. They should make a full tang, fully functional version of this or similar in white. Love it!!!!!
I am completely blown away by this awesome sword! It arrived way faster than I expected, and looks great in my room! The ribbon came off as I removed the sword from the box, but I was able to fix it. I was also pleasantly surprised by the Trueswords poster that came with it! I'll most definitely be purchasing more items from Trueswords in the future! Thank you! :)
I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said, It's GORGEOUS. I will admit that the little bell is about the only thing innacurate with Rukia's sword, but one could careless compared to its overall beauty. And with a price like this one, how could you loose!! I was short on cash when I decided to buy it, but it was worth it. Mine had a some minor scuffing but it was probably due to shipping. <br />A must have.
I like it, its light, white, and incredibly sexy, oh, and did I mention my friends love her? Thats right, its a her. He claimed her for when the zombies attack, I've got the Bankai.lol...but seriously, its nice, I fully recommend it.
Iâ€™ve always been a big Rukia Kuchiki fan, so was very excited to find this replica of Sode No Shirayuki. This sword is absolutely beautiful! And except for the color of the blade, is very accurate to its anime and manga counterpart. The only flaw I had with mine was some small black scratches at the bottom of the hilt, but they can be cleaned off very easily. Overall this is a great sword for Rukia fans as well as anime fans in general.
It is pretty cool. The ribbon is a very nice touch and the bell is cool too. Also it is all white which is the coolest. It would be better if the blade was white like Gi Joe's storm shadow sword.
I placed this order yesterday and it came today I mean damn that was fast but seriously this is a awesome replica of Rukia Shikai form I mean the only problem is that the blade isn't white other than that I mean amazing and Rukia kind of suck but her sword is amazing thanks TS P.S please redo Byakuya sword as a full tang thanks
Excellent, an absolutely great sword. Shipping came perfect-on time, and was safely packaged. <br />As for the sword, there's not much you can say negatively for this replica. As a sword, it's obviously not usable, but looks amazing. The guard is accurate, as is the handle. The little smiley charm is... odd, to say the least, but it is a bell like in the anime. The ribbon is great in terms of replication, and the sheath fits well. The worst thing I can say about this sword is that it smells like spray paint, as the guard, handle, and sheath were all painted. On those lines though, the paint does not chip, and the scabbard is nice and shiny. <br /><br />Definitely worth the price, and perfect for anime fans. <br />Once again, great job True Swords!
omg i love this sword soo much! the bell thing came off but i tied the ribbon to the tsuba (handguard) and it looks super awesome!!!!!!! when i got it, is was very dull, but its very easy to fix with a grinding wheel and a grinding stone :) lol i love this sord and i am getting the ichigo bankai or abarai renji's sword next :) 777/5 stars
This is my 1st purchase i got from this site and delivery was fast an prompt. This katana has to be seen to be believed. Its beauty is simply amazing. I definitely recommend this site to anyone that is a sword collector.
This sword is simply wondeful!! The pictures soooo didn't do it justice. When you are holding it in your hand you can really feel it's brillance. Or maybe thats just me lol. Its really light, and you would think that the ribbon would get in the way, but it's like it's not even there. In fact I think it just as all the more to it. Any fan of anime should be skinned alive for not even thinking of add this to their collection, because this is one of the best ones out there!
This sword is SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!! Picture perfect design and solid construction makes it a MUST have even for the casual collector. It would be a bargain at double the price so at only $39.99, it's a no-brainer.
THIS is one heck of a sword! as said in other reviews the picture dosent even begin to show how amazing this sword is.<br />the only flaw mine had was a small(almost unnoticible) scuff on the tip of the blade.if you want a great sword,you found it.
Simply amazing. Its a beautiful weapon. The weight is nice, and feels great in your hands. The pictures really don't give it justice. If you are thinking of purchasing one, go ahead an do it, its well worth your money. Shipping was also great, I ordered this on Monday morning, and I received it Wednesday afternoon. Its a must for any anime fan. There's a reason its considered the most beautiful Zanpaktau in all of Soul Society.
I highly recomend this sword to anyone thinking of buying it. The picture simply does not do it justice. Not only does it look very nice, but it is well balanced and a very good replica...oh yeah full tang!
this sword is so absolutly awsome and the ballance is great and plus this is rukias sword, who doesnt like rukia. this sword is not battle ready but it is in the perfect condition to be sharpened. this is the best first sword i could have had.
This sword came in very fast! And the design of it was so awesome!! The only nonperfect thing about this was that when I recieved it, the hook that linked the keychain and the handle was bent on arrival. But it was probably when it was sent.
Words simply cannot describe how beautiful this sword is. It strikes me near-speechless, which is something rare. The ribbon whips gracefully through the air with each swing: poetry in motion. I'm truly glad I bought it. My advice to anyone thinking of buying it: Buy it.
The picture provided just dosent show off its true uniqueness. The all white design is attractive to say the least but the spirit ribbon at the end is a unique feature all in its self. Swinging it around you'll notice the trailing ribbon flows almost abnormaly as the full tang blade provides a good balance. The extended handle opens an array of new technique and style that only portrays a Nodochi. The smily symbol adds a display factor that is both stylish and accurate. Best thing is that the ribbon will help filter faulty movements while earging your technique towards perfection for a flawless performance. Only problem is that the blade itself is not sharp, nor is it white. For the price and limited offer its a must have for any swordsman^^
Very beautiful sword. I love anime and this sword is perfect for my collection! Thank you! Its worth it if you are a anime fan.
I'm really happy with this purchase. I thought I'd be buying it just for display (which it still is, it's just better than strict display quality) but I was suprised to see that it's full tang. Also the blade isn't cheesy looking like it is in the picture. Obviously it's extremey acurate (the blade isn't white obviously like it is in the manga but come on who cares it's awesome) but it's very beautiful as well. The only problems I had were with the hilt (it had scuff marks but I think that was just my bad luck since they were so small) and it wasn't as sharp as I would have liked. But aside from my Obsessive compulsive standards (literaly I do have OCD) it was perfect.
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.
