Really solid feeling with no rattle. Sharp as can be right out of the box. Goes into the Saya easily but stays in snug in a good way.
Unfortunately the Tsuba is missing paint as if it chipped. So there’s a big silver metallic blemish where the paint should be that is a bit of an eyesore. For the cost not an absolute deal breaker but I’m still a bit disappointed with this being my first purchase on here and all. However the sword itself is nice I just was unlucky I’m sure. Shipping kept getting delayed too but I’m sure the current situation with covid is the reason.
Looking through the reviews for this sword, all I see are five star reviews. This did scare me a bit because I was thinking there was no way for this sword to get only perfect reviews, however after purchasing it I can see why. This is my first sword so I guess I don’t really know what to look for but I can’t find any defects and I am pretty impressed with how solid and clean everything feels about it.
It's lighter and better balanced than my other two favorite katanas. It was perfect out of the box. Very sharp. Slice paper with ease .I believe it to be the best quality for the money.
Surpassed all my expectations at this price. Well constructed and it looks like it was lovingly made with exquisite detail - as beautiful as it is deadly!
After researching handmade/forged swords for hours and many different sites, I was amazed to come across this Musashi clay tempered Katana for such a reasonable price. I bought it for my husband as a gift. We are both "Forged in Fire" addicts. This sword arrived in perfect condition. The blade is straight and extremely sharp. Everything about this Katana screams quality. Don't let the price suggest something different. It's a beautiful work of art, well balanced with a full tang.
Musashi is one of the best value katana makers on the market. This fine piece delivers in all the important areas and at a very comfy price. Well made!
My sword arrived on time thank you truesword for a great shopping experience I'm a martial artist but a novice at the sword but it is beautiful and sharp gonna get a cutting stand and those mats to cut just going to try but very satisfied I will order again a little higher level thanks
beautiful, strong, sharp, and solid. just got it. took it for a walk, in flint mi. and cant say a single bad thing. best money I've spent in a long time.
I purchased one of these recently, and I have to say that of all my swords (I also have 7 European style swords), this one is the best regarding both quality of craftsmanship and materials. Some of my other swords cost twice as much, and are made of 440 stainless and the grip constantly loosens on the tang. Nice for hanging on a wall, but could never be used for "home defense" unless you wanted to beat someone with a metal stick :o)
The hamon on this one is just subtle enough and is clearly "organic" and irregular, as it should be. Definitely not wire brushed or fake.
Everything is tight and well assembled. The sword slides easily but then seats snugly into the scabbard.
The packaging was very good as well. The blade was oiled and wrapped in cellophane. The cardboard box and cloth cover were also good quality. The sword arrived in perfect condition (no scratches, fingerprints, etc).
The only thing that looks or feels a little cheap on it is the cord wrapping on the scabbard (feels like thick shoelace material), but it's such a little detail compared to the rest that it is easy to forgive/ignore.
I can't bring myself to cut anything with it for now because it's too beautiful, but it is very sharp indeed.
Handling is light and this sword is nimble, exactly NOT like my European swords that feel slow and blade-heavy.
4 weeks later, and I am still amazed at how good this sword is for the price...
Definitely recommended. No buyer's remorse. In fact, I'll be buying more Musashi swords!
It cuts most boxes fairly well and looks good doing it.
Ok a small back ground on me , I've been a blacksmith for 30 years and a bladesmith for 20 years . I bought two Musashi katanas from True Swords , for the purpose of destroying them . This being one of them . I am no martial artist, nor do I have any original Japanese Katanas to compare fit of hardware to. So I am going to speak only on durability of this blade .
First , I skipped over cutting water jugs or any other soft impact items. I went right for pine 2x2s. This blade passed right through with no deflection of the blade , no chips to the blade or edge roll .
Second , I tied 16 pieces of 2" diameter bamboo together and proceeded to hack and chop at them with a total of 30 swings. Again no edge roll or chips to the blade .
Third I took the blade and proceeded to beat it through a 12" diameter red oak log with with a 2.5 pound blacksmiths hammer , splitting six pieces from it like you would with an ax .
All of this was done right out of the box, no extra sharpening was done .
After my tests the only visible damage was caused from the hammer striking the spline of the blade .
I then took the blade into the shop and was able to put a razors edge on the blade .
In short I could not reproduce this blade for cost it sells for let alone sell a finished katana .
Would I recommend the Musashi 1060 steel blade ? My only responce would be Hell Yes I Would !

it was love at first sight with this blade. I opened the box and was very impressed straight from the beginning, and when I drew it from the sheath I fell in love. the blade is just gorgeous, polished and so sharp I cut 1/4 inch thick leather with ease. simply put, this is a must have for any collector
I had gotten this sword yesterday and I put it through extreme testing. It is amazing and I am VERY happy with my order. It's not the world best, but for the money, it's SO worth it.
This sword is the best
The pictures don't do this sword justice. It is absolutely stunning and feels very sturdy and well made. Comes with a certificate of authenticity as well, which I wasn't expecting. I haven't cut anything yet but after seeing how beautiful it is, I don't think I want to anymore. It didn't have a scratch on it and came with some grease that you just wipe off. So worth the money!
So I have to say, I have put this sword to some abuse since I received it. I have cut through numerous water bottles, in groups, hanging, thrown into the air, etc. I have also frozen some water bottles up to a 32 oz size, which is about 4" in diameter, cut through those like butter!!. Now, after hitting the ice with it, it did warp the blade slightly, but I was able to straighten back out. All in all, for the price, I have to say this sword holds up to the test. It is really bad ass!! If you are looking for a good priced, FUNCTIONAL Katana, I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful piece of steel!!
This sword is beautiful! The picture doesn't quite capture the detail of the dragon tsuba. Everything is very solid. The grip feels great and it seems pretty balanced. Mine wasn't the sharpest when I received it though. I understand why it wouldn't be but it would have been nice if it had been able to cut paper out of the box. Speaking of the box, the packaging was nice. It had styrofoam blocks to hold the sword in place. Thankfully the styrofoam didn't just fall apart and get stuck on everything as it so often seems to do. The shipping was very fast. They had it in Fed-Ex's hands within a day. The saya is truly a sight to see. It's black finish is very nice and handles well. My main thing that I'm not crazy about on the sword is that it has the "China" etching on a Japanese style sword. It is on the opposite side of where it says "Musashi" just above the tsuba. I look forward to buying from here again!
This sword is beautiful, and every bit what I expected. It came razor sharp, and finely polished. The handle is tightly wrapped, and does not feel like it will come undone, even with heavy use. The tsuba looks very will made, and the attention to detail on this sword is amazing.
Just recived my Sword today and I can't be more happy. The fit and finish on the sword is top notch, the blade is razor sharp, the saya has a tight fit and there is no rattle at all in the sword. My first Katana was a $300 United and this sword feels every bit as good, only difference in feel is this sword is lighter and faster. For the price you can't beat it, any one thinking of buying this sword I have two words, GET IT.
My first sword purchase and I am extremely satisfied with both the sword and service from Trueswords. For the price, it is a quality sword.
