  • What’s the difference between a display sword and a functional sword?
    A display sword is usually crafted of stainless steel, which is very rust-resistant, and it tends to have display-worthy ornamentation. Most importantly, though, is that the blade edge is unsharpened. A functional sword comes razor-sharp, and the blade is crafted of a typically stronger steel like a high carbon or Damascus steel.

    I recieved my set today and was over the top on the quality and beauty of these swords. They will now take center stage of my sword and knife collection. They arrived quickly and were sharp out of the scabbard. I have purchased many items from True Swords and happy with every purchase. Thank you True Sword.

    Review of: Shinwa Black Knight 3-Piece Sword Set
  • Clifton

    An unbelevable work of art. Very well made and balanced. After several years in Japan this is the first Katana I was willing to own. Most American made Katanas are made to hang on a wall not use as a working weapon. This is a weapon I will put my trust in.

    Review of: Honshu Boshin Katana
  • Randall

    It's a beautiful sword. It would make a great addition to a wall hanger collection, but battle ready it is not. My son and I put it up against some 2 liter bottles,16oz water bottles, and a water filled milk jug. Granted, this was right out of the box, no sharpening other than factory. It made short work of the milk jug. I was impressed. The 2 liters? Well, not all that impressive. They went flying across the yard. Thrusting was effective. It passed through all of the bottles effortlessly. By the end of our cutting test, the sword had a rattle in the guard and a warp in the blade. My kid still likes it, I guess that's all that matters in the end, but as far as taking this thing up against anything but a milk jug, I wouldn't recommend it.
