This sword is made of 1095 high carbon steel, clay tempered with a polished mirror-like surface. It is a very strong sword made with traditional methods, for multiple applications. The blade is repeatedly heat treated and hand forged to remove impurities. The clay temper process combines the characters of toughness and flexibility and results in a genuine hamon (temper line). The blade is full tang and hand sharpened, suitable for battle. The sword comes with silk sageo/ito, genuine same' (rayskin) and premium engraved copper fittings. The saya is made of hard wood, painted with multiple layers, hand carved with inlaid shells, and featured buffalo horn at the ends. It's even more beautiful in person. This sword 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 blade is a stunning combination of beauty and functionality.

The custom Samurai Katana I designed from Swords of Northshire's numerous customization options is beautiful. The quality exudes a keen attention to every detail, from the katana's perfect balance, to the ray skin wrap on the handle, and the pearl inlays on its scabbard. A representative from the site named Bryce kept in contact with me during the forging of my katana, which was a nice professional touch. I would highly recommend ordering from them either for the first time, or to help build your collection.

I looked into your website courtesy of SBG (Paul) and decided to give you a try. What a good decision! My sword was made with obvious pride in workmanship and Bryce was great in helping out with my selections. I plan to order another soon and if you're thinking of ordering a sword you can't go wrong here. Outstanding!

I received my sword earlier this week. The shipping container consisting of a sturdy styrofoam box wrapped in shipping tape was in excellent shape with no damage to the sword. The sword was sharpened as promised and prepared well for shipping i.e., oiled, wrapped, etc...After living in Japan for 10 years I wanted to complete my home entrance way with an authentic looking Japanese sword which are difficult to purchase in Japan because of the no weapons law(s). Good service...good product, and at a fair price. Domo Arigato Gozaimasu! SD

Product was as specified. Beautiful piece and sharp as I asked for,unlike some distributers (budk and the like )who advertise "battle ready, quality pieces at bargain prices ". The katana I received was beautiful, battle ready and easily worth twice the price.

I received the sword yesterday. The container was in good shape and I appreciated how well the sword was packaged, including that the blade was oiled and sheathed in plastic. And thank you for sending it priority express. I'm sure that got it to me days earlier than standard shipping. The sword itself is beautiful and the saya is a work of art. It was the saya that drew me to that particular sword and it is gorgeous. I also appreciate the beautiful sword sack. Very nice indeed. I couldn't be more pleased. Sincerely, James Bernet
