Okay, so I was browsing a website called www.trueswords.com , and there was a sword on there that was actualy a replica of Ichigo's Zangetsu shikai form. The precise url is http://www.trueswords.com/ichigo-sword-from-bleach-anime-zangetsu-cutting-moon-manga-p-2088.html?osCsid=cf13f7844f0d82bb75669bb 6ea6054a0. What do you guys think of it?

Cool seems real enough though the picture makes it look like a simple toy made of plastic.

It is shorter, as the Zangetsu from the show is about as long as Ichigo (About 5"8). In any case, it's good for display, at least, right?

It seems kinda short for what I imagined Zangetsu to be. I thought the sword was huge, so big that you "can't block it all." It's wide sure... And yar, it does look fake. Most of the swords on there do not look like real metal. It's probably because they used paint to get it to look just right instead of just having it be polished metal.

Solid 440 Stainless Steel
Full tang sword - Blade goes to the end of the handle!
Cloth wrapped handle with streamer
Two-tone blade: Black and Polished Stainless Steel
Width: Base of blade - Approximately 4.5 inches
Length: Tip of sword to end of handle: Approximately 41.5 inches
Includes custom black leather sheath w/ belt loop
Accurate replica of Ichigo's sword from the BLEACH animeIF they BS you on this, you outta go get your money back. However, a sword reputible quality of that size would weight 20-30 pounds. That would be a bitch to throw around.

EDIT: I garuntee you that the width on that sword is not replica size. I would say the real thing should be 6" atleas at base.

Technically, if you wanted to wear it around town, it isn't illegal. The blade rule only applies to concealed weapons(knives). This is not a concealed weapon and if you are an adult...you can bring it around, but you wont make any friends on the street.

Dang...I just remembered....I gotta wait till JUne till I'll be in a place that will allow swords (my cousin's house). Luckily I will be living right behind a groceerry store.... Countless watermellons will be wasted :D.

...how lame...its 3.5 feet...it should be huge..i made one outta styrofoam...it was awesome :D but im not as tall as ichigo so i made it my size...super cool until i disintigrated it with my spray can...that stuff is toxic

the site doesnt seem too reliable though. cuz the products look unprofessional and ..well not authentic.. i got some swords at home and they are the real deal, so if u want a katana or something go to japan and buy one. that sephiroth sword they have looks sooo plastic

Wait... It's only $50? There is NO way these are quality swords. A nice sword costs upwards of $200.

Now this (http://www.trueswords.com/ninja-pirate-belt-buckle-throwing-knife-p-77.html?osCsid=cf13f7844f0d82bb75669bb6e a6054a0) seems to be MUCH more worth the money.

Ooh, for sure. Also, if you search, the swords they sell are all over the net... they're like, mass produced. A custom job would be so much more worth the money.

DarkAztek

There's no such thing as a good mass produced sword. Plus, why would you want to get a sword made out of stainless steel? I'm sorry, but there is a local place not far from me that makes shit with titanium allow so it is ridiculously light and strong.

$50 is worth the risk. I mean if it sucks, you only lose $50. I know a few sword shops in Dallas that sell really kickass katanas for $1000 and they have the ColdSteel treatment. I mean, I bought a Mexican Army Officer sword in Mexico for $50 and it turned out great. I can chop shit up.

I might get the Cloud sword in a month.

Its says steel so...........I believe them lol. Im gullable as hell though. Looks about as good as It should for 50 bucks, can't expect too much for that price. Its the same length as any other regular sized Kitana, thats kind of a let down but other than that Its ok. They need one without the paint though, jst str8t steel. It looks cool on the anime and in print but in real life a painted sword looks lik a big ass toy. I might get it, just cuz.

damn lol.....guess I can't get it now that you said that. Is it really that bad? I wonder if they have other zangetsu replicas, the stainless steel thing sold it for me though lol.

What do you guys think about Sephiroth's Masamune or Kadaj's Souba? I wanna buy them both a hell of alot more than Zangetsu, what do you guys think?

DarkAztek
04-28-2006, 01:39 AM
...I'm such a hipocrite. I want the Sephiroth sword really badly. That thing is pretty damn huge. ...I also really want the one that is from Kill Bill. I mean, that thing is a BEAST. The thing is, I'd prefer to have a replica that is made specifically for me. It'd be expensive as shit, but at least I know I'd have folded steel / titanium.

It toally looks plastic. And also, Ichigo is about 5.5 feet tall, and Zangetsu is almost as tall as he is. So why 3.5 feet?

Dude, this thing looks like a piece of plastic that was painted.

By the way, even if that is metal.... It was still painted.

I saw this replica version of squall's sword... the gun one from FFVIII or something. It looked fairly good.

Hmm, well, it is odd. The zanpakuto looks like shit, but this http://www.trueswords.com/dragon-naginata-huge-staff-blade-p-109.html?osCsid=6b35ece95df6b244093917eb ffae6eab is a fairly good one, I actually have that exact one.

... the gun one from FFVIII or something. It looked fairly good.

Agreed... I thought that. And it seems to be the only one around that's easily availible =/ I may just buy it.
