The Honshu War Sword - Black represents a modern spin on a proven, time-tested sword design, boasting a sleek, contemporary look and serious muscle to back it up. The imposing 21 1/4" blade is forged from rugged 1065 high carbon steel, with a non-reflective black coating for added stealth and corrosion resistance. Tough and ergonomically contoured, the TPR handle provides a superb no-slip grip. The brooding black handle and blade finish are vividly offset with a satin-finished, stainless steel handguard. Measures 30" long overall. A heavy duty sheath completes the package.

Excellent all purpose tool that'll last a lifetime

Lethal against any obstacles in the bush. This thing is a Machete on steroids. I have a affinity to machetes among other knives, swords etc.... and I am a big fan of British cold rolled steel but when I grab this sword, it becomes the jack of all blades and can pull duty in a variety of roles. a light oiling and she's ready for next time. I actually like the sheath and it wears well on the hip in the field. with regular care and maintenance, United Cutlery's rendition of the Chinese War sword is a Excellent all purpose tool that'll last a lifetime!

Great chopper slicer

Cuts through water filled gallon jugs with just one swipe, solid, sharp, an excellent performer

Solid, great balance, unusually sharp out of the box. This is one bad boy. A must have for any serious sword work. Not only an efficient sword to wield, also has great eye appeal and the scabbard is decent.

Fantastic Dadao War Sword

This Honshu War Sword is actually a smaller copy (Wakizashi sized) of a Chinese Dadao War Sword. I received it and Wow! It was very well balanced and had a good weight for a real battle weapon. The fit and finish were excellent. The blade came as a Manganese Steel Blade and it was sharp and solid. The shape of the handle was very ergonomic and comfortable affording one or two hand hold. I have the Cold Steel Dadao. Condor Dadao, CAS Hanwei Dadao as well as several other Dadao blades, and I would put this Honshu War Sword Dadao as one of my favorite. It is shorter and lighter than your standard Dadao making this very handy to carry around as well as storage in the car. The only complaint I have is the design of the sheath left something to be desired. I would have preferred a sheath more similar to the Cold Steel Dadao sheath. With a better designed sheath, I would rate this sword a total 11 out of 10. Oh, I bought another one, but now it comes in 1065 steel instead of the original manganese steel. I wonder why the change in steel?

Issues with war sword

My brother got one of these and recommended that I get one as well. I bought one and was happy with it for a while. My brother then told me the guard on his war sword had come loose. Soon after mine developed the same problem. Neither of us have put the swords to any work, and so the guards came undone without any force required. Rather unsatisfied with what has happened because ultimately it's not a bad sword, but it seems like the craftsmanship is a little bit lacking.
