James Hart: Just got my Hanwei Tactical Tanto, it is loose in the Saya so I will have
to put a shim some where. It comes with instructions on how to do so. The
Bress part on mine was not welded, at least I cant find any welds using a
magnifying glass. Over all I am well pleased with the Tanto, too bad its
goat worship: As far as full tang, I actually took apart their tactical tanto from the
same series. The blade and the tang are one solid piece of steel, which
does get narrower in the area of copper wrap and the hand guard, and then
gets to full thickness along the handle. This creates the effect that
handle and the blade are disconnected and/or welded together.
Stevo Reno: 1) My Wak does the same thing, put it in strate and it is loose, but put
it in with a little bit of twist - torque and it hugs the scabbard.
strange but it's repeatable each time I do this 2 ) Wrap the handle with
'Rescue Tape' it's a super rubbery self adhearing kind of black tape for
temporary plumbing leak fixes, its better than any racket or bat type of
wrap it's not cheap it's $10 buck a roll but dam is it good...My Wak is not
for play I got it as a middle continuum between 1st level pepper spray and
my gun's , the blade is good enough for real self defense - offense......
kevin jakoby: if i would sharpen the sword would the plasma coating come off? please
andujo211: Awesome f****** swords great design economically Perfect.
Coolnicknameguy: don't kill the baby!
DG Studios: did some research after Honshu came out with their tactical katana.
apparently hanwei only did the tang casing for the wakazashi the katana is
true full tang but the Honshu version is cased tang on both swords so i'd
go with the hanwei version or the minetoshi version
BirthOfSerpents: katanas are a terrible design.
MRblondeGames: Nice review ☺
Darrend42: I own one.. (katana) looked for many months to get one in the U.K. It's
basically a rust proof Hanwei Raptor, with non traditional utilitarian
stuba, I love it dearly and may soon become a banned (or restricted) item
in the UK due to it's stuba
Tristan Turnbull: Also if you want to get it without breaking the bank, I suggest budk.com
Martin Hristov: Well it's true what they say, you pay for the quality you get. Cheap katana
imitations like this are good for decoration or cutting softer things.
Christian Potter: Nice ouroboros urbanmusashi13
Dante Grimm: I could deal with all those minor flaws, my only real issue is the tsuba,
its way to small
Tristan Turnbull: Its a very good sword and mine doesn't fall out when I hold it upside down,
so I don't know what's wrong with yawls except maybe your screwing with it
to much. It's not a traditional style katana so you don't like that then
don't get it. The carbon steel I am very happy about because stainless
steel wouldn't be strong enough and dulls easy. I personally say it's well
worth the money and yeah it is a decorative sword but it can do so much
more than slicing through watermelons and stuff like that.
James Milton: they needa make a tactical jian
Cryolyptic: I'd never buy a sword where the sheath comes off on its own.
Total piece of garbage.
Cyrus Khalvati: there descent for store bought
Gin132456: never seen on up close before, but it sounds like the wakizashi can be
digging into the sheath making it harder to pull out? maybe the tip.
kiffahS: there are youtube videos of the Cheness spring steel swords hacking away at
steel drums! I think that they are the Paul Chen 'economy' line, but all
very well made, real same ray skin, real cotton wrappings, not so much
chemical treatment to the blades. they sell a wakizashi with an extended
scabbard so as to fool your opponents into believing you have a katana. for
an advantage on-the-draw to catch your opponent off guard. Also chisa-style
katanas, iato, training etc.. most are on sale too
Jesse Torres: ive got a video of it you should check it out
MtnTow: The 'company' is a bunch of morons. I just talked to them and trust me...
the people answering the phone in Tennessee don't know the first thing
about this sword.
Daniel Deng: i went on their website and i cant find the set anywhere
MtnTow: I totally disagree on this. The plasma coating goes down to the convex
grind. The proof is in sharpening it with the mouse-pad technique. If you
use stones, good-bye coating and have fun trying to get a good edge.
synRdave: great video bud my waki came loose too so what i did was i took clear
mailing tape and rapped it around the brass end and its really tight now i
can turn it upside down and shake it as hard as i can and it wont come out
although you will have to tug on it kinda hard it still come out easy
enough thanks again for the video
5678MAKED: Where did u get it
Chiros Ie: Yep.
UrbanMusashi13: Between the two, there's really no much difference besides length and a
slight difference in weight. In comparison to real Nihounto, these swords
feel like children ages 8+ could wield them. They are lightning fast, and
come with a "meh" sharpness. I suggest buying sharpening stones and
watching tutorial videos on how to sharpen swords. Find a tutorial you like
and buy supplies that they use.
Khota: oh...ok then cool
Michael Orlow: You can spray paint the tsuka and saya with camo paint.
ratio3224: What did ya spend, where did ya purchase it. I want one, probably the
MtnTow: That would be "for all intents and purposes"..... and no wonder you have so
many views with so few subscribers. Rage much?
Frank Campbell: Great review, do you think it would work out to wrap them in Para Cord?
Smood47: BTW you are an insult to the name Musashi. Retard.
UrbanMusashi13: @ZombieKillingPsycho Sorry to hear about the rust problem. I'll subscribe
to yours if you subscribe to mine. Lol
Cody N: Very nice use of the extra lanyard in retaining the wakizashi, I'll have to
do the same.
UrbanMusashi13: @Gin132456 Something like that. The sheath is made from two fiberglass
pieces, and the base of the inside of the sheath/saya has (blade facing up,
looking into sheat) a thicker left-siding near the tip with a semi-circle
cut out for the tip to either slide into or snap into. I no longer
reccomend snapping it into place though. It seems to get looser with each
snap. Time to shimmy the koiguchi with plastic and glue like CAS Hanwei
reccomended for a tight fit. :P
UrbanMusashi13: The plasma coating is only on the spine and bo-hi. As long as you carefully
apply the stone to only the shinogi-ji (as you are supposed to), and DO NOT
give it a beveled edge (similar to the edge formation of most pocket
timewaster6991: the sheath doesn't look tacti-cool though...still cool swords
UrbanMusashi13: @GRAYFOX91 I sent you a message answering your questions. I hope my answers
MegaFunkIt: actually , there are much techniques with 2 hands for wakizashi .
asoundlikesilence: Oh.. Well crap, now I gotta cut some mousepads...
UrbanMusashi13: I really need a new iPod so I can just record a quick video to reply to all
these questions... Yes, I recommend it. Yes, they can still rust,
especially on the handle. Yes, they are worth the money. The spring steel
is is way more advantageous than differentially hardened steel. Use
sandpaper to scratch the rust off the handle, use rubber spray paint to
prevent it from rusting further. Use skateboard griptape for a god-like
Psycho J: Yeah, thats what I did till I found rust all over the edge. took me forever
to get it off.
MtnTow: hanwei... "650 Industrial Blvd Sale Creek, TN 37373"
RIVERINE: I just got a Honshu tactical wakazashi from "National Survival Center" for
$119.00 (no shipping)! This is a REALLY good full-tang wakazashi with a
carbon-steel really sharp blade!!!
MilesHendrix0: Where are you buying it from? I've been looking and I haven't found
asoundlikesilence: Mouse-pad backing? Good idea, to the dollar store, Batman!
