This Nagamaki sword is made of 1095 high carbon steel with a polished mirror-like surface. It is a very unique sword with a structure that is a mix between a Katana and Naginata, with a Unokubi-Zukuri blade shape. The blade is repeatedly heat treated and hand forged to remove impurities making the blade strong and flexible. The blade is full tang and hand sharpened, suitable for battle. The sword comes with a black lacquered hardwood saya with rayskin wrap and buffalo horn koiguchi, silk sageo/ito, genuine same' (rayskin) and premium iron fittings. The tang is secured with two bamboo mekugi and features a mei (signature). It is a very good choice for dojo and iaido use, gifts, cutting practice, display, and collection. It is durable enough for tameshigiri, bamboo, bones, iron wire, etc.

This thing is a beast. The blade has more girth than a regular katana and just feels really beefy. I love the huge tsuka, if you play with katanas alot you will have to learn new swings with this longer handle. The blade has a cool geometry that cannot be shown in pictures, the spine tapers about halfway up and then let's back out at the tip. Tsuka put together good as always with northshire swords and the rayskin I got is higher quality than other sub $300 swords I've gotten here (as expected).

Keep in mind that the blade is wider towards the tip so it's impossible for the sword to fit in a saya as tight as a katana does. They did a really good job fitting the saya but if you hold it upside down the sword will fall out (again because of the blade shape this is unavoidable)

Is it worth? Yes. Probably my favorite now in my collection of about 15

This sword is beautiful. It's craftsmanship is comparable to very expensive swords. All fittings are tight and looks well made. The blade is scary sharp. I ordered the light cutting sharpness and I am very pleased. The Nagimaki style blade looks like a normal katana but with a wider cutting end. It looks amazing. The handle is longer than normal but it makes it easier to maneuver. The sword feels lighter than my other 1060 katana. It took about 4 weeks to make I think. Once completed, I received an email with detailed pictures. They asked me if it was up to my approval. Then was shipped and arrived at my door very quickly. The sword bag that came with it is made of silk and is very pretty. I highly recommend this sword to anyone looking for a great sword that is not too expensive.

Absolutely pleased with my purchase,My first Nagamaki Hybrid. Very sharp,excellent craftsmanship on the whole sword, i wish i would have gone all the way , with a full stingray saya, in red, and gray. Also everything is custom, length, clay , and folding, colors, hardware, engraving, the materials that the sword is made of, everything can be custom, price is fair ,pending what you customize. I'm already saving for the next two swords, i will be coming back for more.

I've been collecting swords over the last decade and Swords of Northshire katana are exceptional quality. I'm a martial artist who trains with swords daily, and I've actually ordered multiple swords from SON as I didn't want to cut bamboo or tatami with them - not because of concerns with poor quality, BUT, because the blades are so "sweet." With the mirror finish, this sword felt more like a practice sword than something I wanted to cut with - it was just too beautiful. I've since ordered the "deep sori" katana and once again I really like the fit, finish, and overall quality of the blade, wrap, and "furniture." I've bought swords from Bugei, Hanwei, and many others - these are exceptional cutters and stunning quality.

This shopping experience for my Nagimaki Katana sword by far exceeded my greatest expectations. I sense self-defense may very well come down to the basics. This is my reason for purchasing such a masterclass of artistic expression placed upon the superb quality and craftsmanship for this very sharp, and authentically designed sword. I prefer the Asian swords over American swords simply because they are individually made and not mass produced for corporate greed, but handmade with a kind of honorable tradition. I am so very pleased with SwordsofNorthshire. I will be back again for more. Awesome job people.
