Mine arrived a few days ago after less than a week for special ordering since they were out of stock. It was beautiful straight out of the box. Great sturdiness and weight which is perfectly balanced with the proper hand position. Unfortunately, mine wasn't as sharp as much of the others are. As in, it barely cut paper. I tried to sharpen it but the blade doesn't want to wear, and I might be using the wrong stone. . In their impossibly fantastic customer service, they are sending me a complimentary sharpener guaranteed to make it razor sharp. True Swords really does have the best customer satisfaction I've ever seen. And the sword is flawless. The samÃ© is... creepy. I'm just not used to ray skin. Regardless, this sword has the potential to be epic in all senses.
i purchased this sword and it came in 4 days. It is an amazing sword, quite heavy, as expected and Extremely Sharp! i love this sword, what you can't see very well in the image is the tsuba which is nicely stylized with arrows making for a very nice product. A must buy for any katana lover at a great price!
AWESOME!!! This is a really-real sword. It feels so sturdy and well made. I've bought a few swords and this one is by far the best.
This Kat is massive and sharp as a razor how it sell so cheap is beyond me but I am more than satisifyed.I put it to the test with 8" Tatami mats and it cut them like butter. This Katana is a bargan and Most Excellent add that with lightining fast shipping and the whole deal is a 10!
I've had this sword for about 6 months now and after extensive use and experiments with this sword I have to admit that it's worth it's cost. In my opinion the Cold Steel brand is known for over pricing alot of it's products but this sword is the only one I told myself I would get. On top of that the only reason I got this sword was because of the True Swords price compared to Cold Steel's direct price. Here you can get it for $ 330 while on their site it'll cost you about $ 600.The advertising picture though makes the sword itself how can I say more " shiny " than the sword actually is. I would just be careful though when buying Cold Steel products. Make sure you do your research on one of these swords before commiting to buy.It's definetely a unique sword in itself though. Swords these days you can get them at 40" or you have to get them at ridiculous 65" sizes. This one is a nice middle balance between the two if you want a larger blade and there aren't many " O " Katanas out on the market. This blade is recommended.
I ordered this cold steel O katana last week and trueswords shipped it fast! It came in today. I haven't done any cutting with it. The sword is quite heavy and large, just as I expected. This cold steel o katana is a very tough sword, if you want a big tough cutter go with this! And make sure you get it from trueswords, they have excellent customer service and fast shipping.
I just got home and the box was in my door way to my room and all i could think of was ripping the box to shreds and look at the blade and feel the weight. So far this swrod is the greatest sword i bought so far and Trueswords know what i'm talking about from my record. i can't wait to test the sword on the box. *smile* Well i must so if you got the bucks and love long swords these is highly a must have sword to put on your wall. 20 out of 10.
