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.

Authentic Chinese Swords

The Shen family has long been a staple of the Long Quan swordsmithing history. They began their shop in 1896 and have passed it down from father to son over generations. Each son began to learn the art of sword forging before his 14th birthday, and they have all grown to become true masters at creating custom forged swords.

 

The authentic Chinese swords that they have designed and forged have been used by the army and by many martial arts groups as well as props for film and television. Some of their biggest achievements include making swords for President Chiang Kai-Shek of the Zhejiang provincial government and Chairman Mao Zedong.

 

Heritage and Achievement

The developments in forging, and the historic achievements of the Shen Family, have earned their town a place on the list of cultural heritage sites and have earned their workshop a Lifetime Achievement Award. Their dedication to the craft of swordmaking results in some of the most beautiful, unique, and durable dao and jian swords the world has ever seen. Even today, they continue making improvements and innovation to their art, preventing their craftsmanship and quality from stagnating.

A popular story that illustrates the strength of Shen custom forged swords harkens back to a local contest amongst the swordmakers in the town in 1915. The Shen family won the title of Champion of Swords, as their sword was capable of cutting through three copper coins and cutting another sword into two pieces. Other prestigious awards include the Gold Award in the Panama Thousand Countries Fair and Best Sword in the China National Art Contest in 1921.
