Absolutely love the craftsmanship with this custom piece. Swords of Northshire was wonderful to communicate with. Always very timely and extremely accommodating. Listened to every detail I was looking for, and did their best to make my dream (and the recipient of this sword's dream) come true. I would and will definitely be back again to re-order another in the future.

Impressed by their professional approach. They were quick to respond to my questions and give offers of assistance. The custom made Katana was a true beauty and I am very satisfied with every aspect of my dealings with them. I can highly recommend Swords of Northshire to anyone seeking a finely crafted excellent quality sword for a very reasonable price.

Our son was absolutely speechless when he unwrapped the sword. He loves it. We needed a rush build and the sword came on time. It looks very elegant-well made with handsome parts. Also, customer service was very helpful. Thank you very much.

I am extremely satisfied with Swords of Northshire. Aside from my custom katana being absolutely beautiful and well made, their customer service is outstanding. They accommodated me at every step. My second custom katana is in the mail now! Can't recommend them enough, and will certainly be doing more business in the future.

The quality in craftsmanship of the sword I had custom made is impeccable. The materials are beautiful. The staff were always available when needed and very informative.

1095 High Carbon Steel

For a blade that keeps a very sharp edge and is easy to resharpen, 1095 high carbon steel is very desirable. Generally, 1095 is the standard of high carbon steel in most swords and katana blades. It offers the highest carbon content and yields the sharpest edge, but it can also be fragile if not crafted by a master swordmaker.

Whether you’re a novice collector or an experienced sword buyer, the carbon steel swords from Swords of Northshire are ideal for your needs in the dojo, in cutting practice, or to put on display. Explore our massive collection of swords and knives made of 1095 high carbon steel today.
