The first step towards creating your custom sword blade is choosing the right materials. At Swords of Northshire, we offer several steel options — each with their own benefits and advantages.

  • 1060 High Carbon Steel: Provides the ideal balance between strength and hardness
  • 1060 Folded Steel: Offers more flexibility than higher carbon steel
  • 9260 Spring Steel: Contains silicone alloy to increase shock resistance
  • 1095 High Carbon Steel: Can hold a sharper edge, but must be differentially hardened
  • 1095 Folded Steel: More resilient, durable, and flexible than other metals
  • Clay Tempered 1095 Steel: Creates a more flexible spine, but harder edge
  • Clay Tempered & Folded 1095: Combines the best of tempering and folding
  • Clay Tempered & Folded Tamahagane: The most traditional Japanese forging method


    Length & More



    After choosing the metal for your custom sword blade, you must also tell us the length of sword you prefer.



      We also offer you the opportunity to decide whether you want the traditional embellishments of a Japanese sword, including:


      • Bo-Hi Groove (Blood Groove): Lightens the blade for faster movements
      • Hamon (Temper Line): Adds a unique design to the blade
      • Personal Sword Engraving


        Your sword engraving can be the name of the smith, your name, or even a phrase or word. We offer engraving in Chinese, English, and Japanese Kanji.


        Style & Color


        The final step of personalizing your custom sword blade is choosing the style and color of the accessories that come with each sword. Whether you prefer an all black lacquered set or you want bright colors at every angle, the choice is up to you. These are the different elements for which you must choose colors, material, or style:


        • Saya | Scabbard Color
        • Sageo | Sheath Cord Color
        • Tsuba Fuchi | Guard Material & Style
        • Kashira Habaki / Seppa | Fittings Material & Style
